Pink, Paint and Puddles

Nothing helps heal a sad or sick heart like getting good and dirty. Lily loves the rain. She has been begging for an umbrella to play with and finally, the Easter Bunny broke down. She calls all stagnant water "mud puddles" and love to jump and splash in any she can find. . .much to the chagrin of me, her mother, on any shopping trip or walk to church.

I have been getting many a request for pictures of the new place. I will get there, I promise. Here is a before picture of Lily's room. A couple of days after she got out of PCMC we took her to the new house to help us paint her room. I thought it might make her feel more excited about moving in if she got to be a part of it. Maybe I am putting too much expectation on a paintbrush and a two year old, but that is where my mind was. She loved it. Pink paint was abounding and so were the smiles. She did a great job. . .with a little help from Chris. "After" pictures to follow.

I have to say that is so great to have our painting, mud puddle jumping girl back. She was so sad in the hospital and so sick for about three days afterward, but now has gained weight, and is as spunky as ever. She still says after drinking a big cup of water "I drank soooo much water, the doctor is going to be so happy at me!" It is pretty cute.
