Friday, March 27, 2009 - Update

Why can't we go outside?

Olivia will be quite disappointed when we're stuck inside for the next few days with what is forecasted to be blizzard-like conditions! I thought it was supposed to be Spring? She loves getting out of the house. . .even if it is just for a drive in the car. Of course, I love it too. I seriously feel like the walls are caving in on me and I can't stand to be inside for more than a few hours at a time. I made it through the last 2 winters fairly well and I don't know why I'm feeling this way now. Olivia and I are always up for visitors (of course, you must be a healthy adult and remember to wash your hands when you first come over.) Once RSV season is over, I really look forward to her playing with other kids. I can't believe that we've kept her healthy this long, but I think it's starting to take its toll on me. She really enjoys it when people come over to play with her and has perfected her shy little smile. Olivia just does the cutest things lately. She likes to hug/kiss her stuffed animals, but she also does it to her favorite storybook characters. In Polar Bear Polar Bear What Do You Hear she adores the peacock and will stop and lay her head against it. The elephant occasionally gets this kind of affection. She does the same thing in Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See with the goldfish (and sometimes the teacher.) She loves it when we tell her that she's, "Oh so sweet!" It is the most adorable thing in the world. She is such a loving little girl and just warms my heart every day.

Sorry you are starting to feel like climbing the walls. I guess there is only so much you can do inside and then it is time to get out! :D
I can't believe there is this blizzard coming through. However, part of me is pretty excited. I love a good snowstorm.
{I'll duck now while people throw things at me} haha
You take care and stay warm!

I don't blame you for feeling the walls caving in! I totally understand. Spring needs to come! Hopefully this was your last winter locked inside!
