Happy Birthday, Vivian!

Vivian's 1st birthday

Vivian is 15 today!

She is in Summer School this week so we celebrated by taking cookies to her class. She seemed to enjoy that.

In honor of her birthday, a funny Vivian story: At the swimming class last weekend that Vivian was completely not enjoying, I tried to distract/interest her by talking to a sweet little girl and her mom who were having a good time in the water. Vivian responded by pinching the sweet little girl. I was mortified and of course apologized profusely and then fussed at Vivian.

"I get out of the pool and go to time out?" was Vivian's response.

Nice try, Vivian.

Happy Birthday, my sometimes sweet girl!

Seems like only yesterday when we got the call, while in the Grand Canyon, that Vivian had been born and was going to be my namesake. Happy, happy birthday, sweet Vivian.
Love, Biba
