I spent the afternoon at this lovely lady’s baby shower.  Lindsay is due with her baby girl at the end of May. 


While I was gone, daddy and Olivia went to Botanica with grandma and grandpa.  They had a great time. 







Feeding the fish.


Although. . .Olivia told me how she fell in the pond!!  What??? Thankfully, she was okay.  Of course the change of clothes that I carry was in my car. . .with me.  So, Olivia told me how she made footprints with her shoes the entire time.

And here’s where she slipped.  She talked about it all night. 



Despite being soaked, she had a great time!! (And daddy gave her a nice bath afterwards.)

Okay, is she not the cutest thing ever?  How adorable does she look in her helmet?  The problem is that she doesn’t use the pedals. . .she just “walks” the tricycle.  So essentially, she is wearing a helmet to walk.

But, we are working really really hard at pedaling. The tricycle is still almost a bit too big for her to reach which is making pedaling more difficult.  We’ll get it!!

This little girl has lots of questions about her twin brother and many of them I do not know how to answer.

Why don’t I have a brother that I can play with?

Can we go to the flower place (cemetery) to see him?

Why doesn’t he live with us?

Can I die and go to heaven so that I can see Logan?

Does he miss me?

I pray that I find the right words to explain things to her in a way that she can understand.  You can tell, even at 4 1/2, that she misses her twin brother and a big part of her life was taken from her.  And my heart breaks all over again.

I ordered Olivia’s preschool class picture this year and I’m so glad that I did!  How cute is she?

Over the weekend, I bought Olivia a nightgown with “Lily” on it.  She has NEVER wanted to wear nightgowns before so I didn’t know if she’d even wear it!  She loves it!  She told me they were the only pajamas that she is going to wear ever again. . .hmm, that should be interesting. Oh, and the band aid is just for looks. LOL.

We had a great time celebrating Ryan’s birthday this weekend.  We went out Friday night to dinner and to a comedy club while Olivia had a slumber party at grandma and grandpa’s with her cousins.  She had a blast and Ryan and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  He had the best birthday in years, which brought a huge smile to my face. 


Today, we celebrated Ryan’s birthday at my parents’ house.

Olivia’s expression in the next picture is just too funny.  It was actually the best picture that we got though.
