"my green eyed girl"

Charli did great today! She seems to be unfazed by getting up early, not eating, and having surgery today :-) She didn't get tired, crabby, or anything like that! In fact, she turned into superbaby I think! Charli was so happy and full of energy today, it was so fun to get to spend the day with her! Chad and I both stayed home with her today, and had the best time ever!

Charli got a big bouquet of balloons delivered to her today from her Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Justin, and cousin Conner. She had a lot of fun playing with them while they sat on the floor! She played so great today!

She picked up her four John Deere tractors (that her dad personally gave her out of his "collection"). She them put them (right side up, it took a few times!!) in her wheelbarrow, wheeled them over to the kitchen floor, and took them out and drove them on the hardwood floors! It was adorable! It seems like she grew up so much overnight last night! Charli also downed her sippy cup of apple juice in 3 sips, ate great...it was just a great overall day!

Enjoy the pictures!



time to get out in the fields with my green!

on my way out for today, brr!

I had so much fun with these balloons today!

(red eyes today!) I played SO nice!

heading out the door to the hospital! I got to wear my PJ's!!


playing in the waterfall in the waiting room!


"I'm getting out of here!!" (Charli trying to run away before surgery!)

I LOVE my books! (and I think daddy does too!)

today was John Deere day! I played with everything John Deere!!
