Sunday, March 8, 2009 - Update

Me and my hubby
Our little family

We always try to snap a family picture when we can, although we've learned that we probably won't get Olivia to smile in them. We're just happy if she stays somewhat still and is facing the right direction. And, sometimes we have to bribe her with some money.

Today was an absolutely fabulous day. I haven't felt so energetic in years! It is beyond amazing, but that is for another post. Grandma and Grandpa Sailing came over to watch Olivia while Ryan and I ate some Mongolian barbecue at HuHot. Then, we ran a bunch of errands and just enjoyed being together. Later, we decided to embark on a new household project. One set of grandparents left at 4 pm and the other set came over at 4:30 pm so that Ryan and I could get started . . .it was totally spur of the moment. You'll have to wait a few days to find out what our new project is. I've waited almost 8 years to get Ryan to agree to this. Olivia enjoyed seeing all of her grandparents and I haven't seen her so worn out in a long time. She went to sleep at her normal 8:30 pm time (which would have been 7:30 pm.)

Don't forget to read the previous post about our March of Dimes t-shirts and be sure to let me know if you would like to purchase one.

You guys look great in these pictures!! I am so glad that you and Ryan were able to have some time this afternoon to run some errands and enjoy each other's company. And best of all - I am so happy that you are starting to feel better and more like yourself. That is so wonderful!!!

You guys look wonderful. Your March of Dimes shirts are adorable. My friend Tiffany is sponsoring our kiddos or we would walk for Olivia's team for sure. You will be easy to spot though! Emma has the same outfit that Olivia has on in these pictures. I just love it. I just love Target, I get in trouble everytime I go!
