2 things to celebrate!!!

First, I gotta say-- just ONE comment about the fro? Really? Jamie is it? So disappointed in you people. So disappointed.

Secondly, we need to get to the celebrating. Its been quiet around our house the last week. Livi got a cold early last week and we have been doing a lot of snuggling and reading and sleeping AT HOME-- which means (drumroll) that we managed to get through 95% of a legitimate illness without going to the hospital. This is a first, people. Get excited. I say 95% because she is still coughing some and has a little bit enough of a runny nose to warrant not going to preschool today-- which makes me sad, both for her and me. But, I'm sure that another day of rest will get us ready for our usual schedule. This is what my Tuesday night through Sunday has looked like

By the way, she is watching cartoons in this picture. Thats the life, right? Also, sorry about the poor quality of the picture. I was trying to figure out why that was when I realized I probably had to squat down for this picture. Being 33 weeks pregnant (I know!!) my balance is not what it used to be. Pretty sure I'm falling over during this picture.

And on to the second celebration-- Livi's new chair came! This is great because we've been squishing her in this blue rocking chair for like ever. Its a great chair, but my kid is freakishly tall now and no longer fits in it. So, a beautiful and generous early Santa Claus gift came yesterday and we could not be happier with it!

It comes in two boxes in two parts that hook together with Velcro so even an idiot like me can put it together. See, isn't this picture quality better? Because I'm not falling over. We made our first venture into normal schedule yesterday right after the chair came when Livi's vision teacher came for therapy. Of course we had to try out the new chair!

That pink light up thing is called a light stick. She loves it. She was raising and lowering her arms on command to reach the light stick. Every time I look at her now I realize she looks more like a girl and less like a baby. She just looks so old! AAAHHH! Also, how do you like my laundry in the background. Don't judge--its clean and folded and has since made it into the drawers (the hardest part of laundry for me.)

Hopefully we'll soon have pictures of the whole fam out and about in this beautiful fall weather.


  1. I was going to comment on the 'fro, but obviously I was so dumbstruck by its glory that I couldn't think or type straight. Or something.

    YAY!!!!! on the new chair!!!! So excited for you!!!!

  2. Loving it! She is definitely more of a girl and less a baby. I agree on the laundry thing, I cannot seem to get it into the drawers/closet. We perpetually live out of clean laundry baskets. Which also means the dirty laundry is on the floor in the corner. Renee

  3. I miss the fro - reminds me of the fabulous 70's :).

  4. I didn't even see the laundry... just cookies... oh, and a big girl putting her hands up and down, clapping, and putting a toy in the bucket!! Rock on Livi!

  5. PS-I am SO proud of you, Olivia! You are a rock star and Gma and Gpa believe in you!

  6. We've been missing you at school, Livi. Hope to see you today. Bring your new pink light up toy so we can play together with it!

  7. I love the new chair and seeing Liv reaching her arms up to it. Fantastic!
