Things at our house have finally calmed down. Livi is feeling much better. Actually, she seems to finally be over this cold she had and everyone is getting more sleep. She is doing so well, in fact, she seems to be improved socially, strength-wise and cognitively from before she got sick, which is interesting. She is REALLY wanting to crawl, so we work on that quite a bit, which turns out to be good exercise for me since she is weighing 25 lbs these days. She is almost holding herself up in crawling position. Its the balancing she has the most trouble with.

We had a FABULOUS weekend last weekend. Grandma, grandpa and aunt mal. Aunt mal and Livi and I had girls day on Saturday. Her wedding dress came in and we went with her to try it on again and then went shopping and had lunch. Chipotle looked like this...

Oh, I guess looking at this picture made me realize too--the helmet is gone--for good! One thing down, just a million more to go. And the hair...still deciding what to do with the hair...hmmm....

Thanks to a wonderful birthday present from Aunt Beckie, Uncle Bill and Cassidy, we had a family pass to the Kansas City Zoo and used it for the first time yesterday. It was a blast for mommy who met up with her friend Kari. Livi loved it. The whole two hours looked like this...

I called genetics and all the tests they sent off but one have come in. All "normal". Didn't expect anything differently I guess.

Brian's school is finished in 2 1/2 weeks and we CAN'T WAIT! I am so proud of him, and so ready to experience marriage when one of us isn't in school. We are so looking forward to the summer for a ton of different reasons. Can I say it again? CAN'T WAIT!!
