Happy Easter!

Finding her Easter Basket

Hunting for her colored eggs!

Here she is in her beautiful PINK (of course) Easter outfit. She was so excited because the skirt "spins" and the shoes are sparkly. She is so cute!!!

These are some of the pictures we took on Easter. She had so much fun this year coloring eggs, and hunting for them in the morning. Not to mention all the questions she had this year about the Easter Bunny. "Where does he live?" "What color is he?" "How does he get in our house?" "I want to see him!" etc.... I spent about 30 minutes the night before just talking about the Easter Bunny and answering all her questions. I'm glad she wasn't disappointed!

Olivia is a crack up. I don't know where she comes up with the things she does, but her imagination amazes me. Here are some examples:

She got a hold of the tape at Grandma and Grandpa's house. I don't know how this started, but she even had Grandma's mouth taped shut. It was so funny to watch her try to see through the tape to walk! She is such a goofball!!!

She found this dress in Grandma's closet and about had a heart attack to see something she could actually use as a wedding dress! She asked Grandma to make her a wedding dress out of it so she could "get married" to the prince. Of course Grandma did it for her, and then some, with the bouquet and everything! Unfortunately, the only prince Olivia could find was Grandma! She even lays on the couch and pretends to be "dead" and her prince has to kiss her so she can wake up. What a little actress!!!

Well, Olivia had her check up from her little surgery last week and the doctor said everything looks great! She doesn't sleep with oxygen at night anymore and he said her throat is healing just fine! He said to follow up with her regular doctor in a couple of months and to watch her at night to see if she still has some apnea. Based on what I've seen, I think she is completely free of sleep apnea and won't need a sleep study! It's so weird to lay by her at night and not know when she actually falls asleep because she is so quiet! Sometimes I whisper her name just to see if she is still awake! It's amazing. I sleep in my bed most nights (before I would end up in her room almost every night) and we both usually sleep all night long! It's amazing and I'm so glad we got those tonsils out when we did! She is back to her happy, energetic self. Most days, that is....
