Happy 4th Birthday Alivia

We celebrated Livi's 4th birthday almost 2 weeks ago...we have been so incredibly busy, which is a whole other post, that I have not had a chance to post about her very special day yet.

Gosh, I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. It was a scary day for us, not knowing how things would turn out. We came in that morning knowing things might not be OK. We knew for weeks that things may not be OK, but I never really thought they wouldn't be. When she was born the reality hit, things were definitely not OK. The next few days were hard. My arms ached to hold her. I remember our amazing ped. doctor staying hours after his scheduled shift to stay with our girly, he promised me that he would help her, promised me he would get answers. He held true to his promises. He even came to update us in the early morning hours...he was amazing. I watched him thru the glass the one evening, he was singing to her and rubbing her head. He cared about her, he cared about us too. We are very thankful for this amazing doctor!

So, I say with much love and happiness, "Happy 4th Birthday Livi!"  We had a great day celebrating! We went to dinner at one of her favorite places, the play McDo*alds.  After dinner we had some delicious cake and ice cream.  She did get a new big girl PURPLE bike from us and some "pollys" from Alaina, David and Dane, but my camera battery was dead when I tried to take pics of her opening it them. I will take some pics of her ridding her new bike soon. But here are some of the pics I took before my battery died:

Of course the cake had to have a picture of the best kitty in the world on it!

We  had to have a wardrobe change, there were so many new dresses to wear & try on thanks to gma & gpa

A cool new pink chair from papa & nana

All in  all we had a great day!
Happy birthday to the sweetest 4 year old girl I know!!
