Wow...I am such a crappy blogger...and baby turned FIVE years old!!!!!!!

Time has gone by just way too fast. I was seriously a little sad that Livie is getting so BIG!! She sure is growing up and I sure love her!!

She seriously has so much attitude and spunk. Some days I feel like I have a 15 year old, haha!! But this girl cracks me up, she definitely has a sense of humor ;)

I can't help but get a little nostalgic as I post this...I just have SOOO much to be grateful for. I can't believe how healthy Alyvia is. This past year she has made those lasting improvements for sure...she no longer has MAJOR anxiety like she used to (she's so much more independent!) She's only had a couple of seizures in the past year, and she was only hospitalized twice in 2009...and she doesn't CRY like she used to!!! Part of the brain healing was crying...endless crying. And its like once she started to cry she just could not stop. I don't know how to explain it, except it was really hard.

But I can't even complain because my little Bug is alive and well. I was visiting a friend's little girl who is staying at Primary's and it just brought back sooo many memories being there at the hospital. It also made me count my blessings...and you know what?? I have A LOT of blessings!!! :) Sorry, I'm not trying to make this into a brag blog! I just feel like I am one lucky/blessed gal.

I feel like Livie and myself are at a really good place in life :)

I have some AMAZING people in my life, an AWESOME family and one INCREDIBLE little girl AND a job I love!!
Seriously, what more could I ask for?!? :)

Happy Birthday, Bug!!!! I'm so glad I get to be your mommy!

Haha love her face

Livie's most favorite person ever...Gma!!!

Livie got a Hello Kitty bike for her Bday!!! :)
