Today is Olivia's third birthday. If I had a working Internet connection at home, I'd have some pictures of her opening presents to show you, but alas, that will have to wait till Thursday. She did get a "Go, Diego, Go!" watch from her Aunt Kristin, which she proudly wore to school today, and there are a few more items to unwrap this evening. There's a big mound of Tiffany-made cupcakes - chocolate with pink icing, as requested - waiting for her at school, too.

I know it's a cliche to talk about the joys of parenthood, but Olivia really has been a joy to us. She amazes me every day. Watching her interact with Audrey has been even more amazing. I always find myself torn between the excitement of seeing her enter new phases of her life, and wishing whatever phase she's in at the time would last forever. In the end, the thrill of the new wins out, as it should. But that doesn't mean we can't remember the past.

As it happens, Tiffany and I will celebrate by seeing Weird Al at the Verizon Theater tonight. We'll make it up to Olivia with a trip to the swimming pool over the weekend. She's still a little fuzzy on the whole day-and-date thing, so we can get away with that. For now, anyway.

And finally, happy birthday to Stace. It's a good day all around, whatever Comcast may do to me.
