Hippity

When Adam and I first started dating we had a bunny pet name running joke. Corny I know… So when we were looking for houses to buy after we got married and were deciding between two we noticed this little garden bunny in the backyard of one and decided that was obviously where we were meant to be. When Amelia was about a year old she randomly discovered our little friend and deemed him her pet to “feed” and take care of anytime she played outside. To this day she still loves and takes care of “Hippity” and is passing this love down to Oliver. I can’t help but to think this silly bunny is God’s way of reassuring me that I’m exactly where I was meant to be!

Tick-Tock Clock

It’s no secret that Oliver is completely fascinated if not borderline obsessed with clocks. So when he received this package in the mail from Nana and Grandpa you can imagine his pure excitement!

I tend not to write much about our journey with Amelia’s Rb on our blog. Mostly because I keep that to her CaringBridge site and partly because it’s not my favorite thing to write about. Although this trip is definitely one to document because not only were we given an “ALL CLEAR” with a year break from seeing Dr. Shields and the opportunity to attempt an in office visit next time, but we were also able to talk about moving Amelia to the Cancer Survivorship Program at CHOP!!!!!! PRAISE! PRAISE! PRAISE!

Oliver had some important business to take care of prior to departure.

No room at the RMH, BUT the Double Tree with their AMAZING cookies and extra bouncy beds were more than a hit!

The best thing about a late EUA arrival time?? Cuddles and cartoons!

Love at first site!!! Amelia’s chosen reward for being so brave during all of her doctor visits was the beloved Princess Anna from Frozen. (Also important to note this is the first doll Amelia has ever wanted!)

Philly3

What’s better than earning Princess Anna for being brave? Why coming home to find her sister, Queen Elsa, awaiting her as a surprise!

So Big

I don’t know what it is about the magical 18 month mark, but it seems like with both of our munchkins at this milestone they suddenly grew up overnight and transitioned from toddling baby to big boy/girl. These days Oliver talks SOOOOO much! He tries to repeat almost everything we say (granted sometimes this isn’t so fantastic) and is saying a number of phrases. He especially loves to say words to fill in the blanks when singing songs. This is a game Amelia finds especially fun because she can play teacher and instruct him on the words to all her favorite tunes. While I would of course prefer her to stick to teaching him the nursery rhymes, she has decided that venturing out and teaching him the Frozen soundtrack was a much better idea. Oliver can now belt out the chorus “Let it go” with appropriate choreography better than Queen Elsa!

But although his big sis is quite the director of most of their playtime, he really is ALL boy- always on the go and forever up to something!

But goodness gracious, how in the world can you stay mad at him?!!!

I also find it so amazing how boys seem to come with a natural fascination of cars complete with “vroom” and “beep-beep” sound effects.

And of course a fascination of technology…
