Independence Day

That face kinda says it all...

Olive was a super-trooper today, didn't freak out much with the cast saw.  (It helped that they gave her a new Pillow Pet, too!)  She had a little while of just looking a little unsure, looking at her legs and not knowing what to do with them.  She wants to move, but she's not going to overdo it.  Did a little supported walking and cruising along furniture and went up the steps of the slide, but is otherwise crawling most of the time.  She's a little noodley overall, forgot how to support herself sitting in a chair, etc.  It's very weird to pick her up--she feels like she's going to slide right out of my arms without all that heft (and the built-in handle)! 

I have never seen a kid SO excited about a bath.  We had a lot of time playing with bubbles and splashing tonight.  It's good, because we need to get some of the gross off of her.  It'll take a little while to get back to happy skin!

Okay, we're tired now...  Good night!

I can't wait to pick up the newly light Olive!

I'll just bet that bath was the best ever.

It won't be long and you'll be chasing after her wondering if that cast really was all that heavy...
