Spring Break

As I lay here in bed recovering from major surgery I hear Lia laughing and playing in the other room and it makes this mamas' heart happy! 

She is laughing hysterically saying "nice job dad." I hear the chomping of the hippo game and the phrase "ready set get hungry" over and over. 

Lia has been playing with all of her puzzles and toys and having a blast with them. Her birthday so close to surgery was a blessing. 


She had her first sleepover last night with Oma and Opa so we could catch up on some much needed rest. She did great- she stayed up late (midnight late) I think it was because she was so excited for the sleepover! She came home and crashed this after noon. 

It will be a relaxing / quiet spring break week for us. We hope to have a few warm days to get back outside and get some fresh spring air! 


Although this is how it is looking right now. 


Argh!!!!

Happy 4th Birthday

To our beautiful daughter! 

Happy Happy Birthday to you! 
We love you! 

Today started at 5am, yep 5am. You woke up coughing because you have a cold and you couldn't get back to sleep!
SO, up it was. 
We watched some shows, ate breakfast and headed out to run errands. 

By lunch you were .... 
... a little tired and crabby. 

We headed home and took a long nap! 
After napping it was present time. 



You loved the Hungry Hungry Hippo game!! 
(You know all of the hippo's names now- yes they have names) 

After a quiet dinner at home you wanted your birthday cake. 

It was the first time you have ever had cheesecake but you picked it out at the bakery because it had a cute little panda on it. 


Lia - you are our sunshine and so loved! 

Happy Birthday and many more 

Love you - 
Mommy and Daddy

Our first taste of spring...

Today was a beautiful day! It was in the 60's and we were outside for hours of spring-time fun. Especially since tomorrow we will be back under a winter weather advisory! 

There was scooter riding 


There was "bike" riding 


and a little pit stop for "bike" fixing 

Ah.. That seat adjustment made a big difference! Now - on to more riding

There was bubble blowing


Ya spring has sprung... 
...almost

Sweet sleepy face

It's a simple but sweet Sunday afternoon 
Just waking from a nap. 
Wearing butterfly wings, playing with a Thomas balloon and watching Olivia - 

It's as simple as that but oh so fun! 

 Look at that sweet sleepy face!!

TV watching in bed... 
 

Turned into a fun Friday night pillow fight 

With all kinds of silliness 

And messy hair 

And laughter!! 

Friday night is F.U.N.
