Olivia has a pet crocodile- this is him. He doesn't have a name, but he sits on her lap so she can "pet him". She was terrified of this toy when she was little, but since we dragged out our baby toys- she fell in love with him.
One day, she will probably hate me for taking this picture, along with several others. When I would pump milk for Jackson, she insisted on helping me. So on this particular morning, she grabbed one of the parts and was trying to pump while watching Mickey Mouse. Every time I had to pump, she'd drop what she was doing and would help me out. What a great helper. :)
I had a great Mother's Day this year! The kids let me sleep in an extra hour, which is like heaven and a great gift by itself. Matt and the kids got me a gift certificate to get my hair highlighted and some other stuff. I haven't decided when I'm going to make my appointment- but it will be before I go back to work.

Well I finally had my oral surgery- what an ordeal. It only took three specialists to figure out what to do- but it's over and done with now. I look super, too- my face is all puffy and bruised, obviously I'm not posting pictures of it! :) In the end I'm missing a molar, so I'm having a hard time eating, which might assist me in my weight loss goal. Olivia is worried she's going to lose teeth now- and wants to go to the "tooth doctor" all the time. Luckily- she doesn't go for another year so we'll hope she's as eager then as she is now!
Jackson had his first "play date" today. Our neighbors have a boy that is Olivia's age, his name is Gavin. Gavin now has a baby sister named Norrie. It's pretty cool because Olivia is one month older than Gavin, and Jackson is month older than Norrie. Olivia and Gavin had a great time playing with toys, especially the train set. Jackson and Norrie just stared at each other and took turns spitting up on us moms. But it was really nice to get out of the house and let Olivia and Gavin play together. Hopefully both sets of kids grow up to be good friends- it is really nice to have other kids so close by.
Tonight Olivia had her first Dilly Bar from DQ. What a mess. I would have taken pictures, but I spent more time cleaning up ice cream off the floor before the cat got to it. She had ice cream in her hair, down her shirt and somehow managed to cover one sock in it. Who knows how she does it- but it was fun to watch. She usually just has ice cream in a bowl- I've never given her ice cream bars for fear of the mess- which was totally confirmed tonight. But she had a great time so I'm sure that will be a regular request from now on. :)
Stay tuned- tomorrow I will be uploading some more pictures. We're having a BBQ with Matt's parents tomorrow so maybe I'll get some cute ones. Olivia is going "worm hunting" in the flower bed- so I'm sure that will yield some cute ones. Take care!
