Dear Friends and Family,
Greetings from Colorado! :) We thought it would be a good time to send out an update on our wonderful family! Here is how our family is doing: Cecelia is now 18 months old! She loves Dora and Spongebob (whom she just calls "Bob"). Her vocabulary has grown immensely!! She can say "map", "Nick" (which is her Godfather's name), she calls kitties "ma-oh" (referencing meow), and she can also say "why" which means water or drink, and na-na is still food. She can say chair, book, and ball, and lots of other fun and exciting words (including a few we're not too fond of...haha). She also says "Horsey" and "Nay Nay". She really loves horses. She is still an adamant Dora fan, and now is getting into Spongebob (Thanks to Godfather Nick and his wonderful fiance, Sarah!) Last week, Nick and Sarah came out and stayed with us for a week! And, to say the least, Cecelia was MORE than excited to entertain her fun guests! We got to go to the hot springs twice, we got to go to the park and on walks, and we got to go on fun, scenic drives. (And of course, Cece made us read every book in her library!). Cecelia was really sad to see Sarah and Nick go back home to Virginia, she kept asking "where Nick?" It was truely heartbreaking. Cecelia has also been hanging out with cousin Emily Olson a lot. She comes by often and Cece is thrilled whenever she does. On Easter Sunday, Emily helped Cece with the easter egg hunt (but Cece seemed far more interested in ripping the eggs she had open instead of finding more...) But, nonetheless, we must say Emily is one of Cece's favorites. Pro Clean is launching on Monday, officially! We got our EIN number from the IRS (everyones favorite people!) and we send out our mass mailer on the 20th. We've got all the equipment locked in, and now it's time to get to work! We're both very excited and grateful for this wonderful opportunity. The snow is slowly melting (FINALLY!) and spring is slowly blooming. We've had a few freak snow storms, as well as 5 power outages (just in the last 3 weeks....) but I'm pretty sure that spring is here to stay! Easter turned out to be a bittersweet day. With Nick and Sarah flying back home that day, Cece also got really sick at the Easter party. She ended up vomiting all over mommy at the party, so we decided it may be best to take her home and let her sleep. Well, the night was long, and after vomiting 15 times, around 7 we were able to go to the store and buy her some pedialyte, and since she has been keeping everything down. She has had a lack of appetite though, shes been really picky about what she wants to eat. She ate some complex cheese at the party that didnt agree with her stomach. The poor thing was sick all night. But, on a happier note, Cece is now feeling better (still just as whiney, of course.) and is up and playing again.
We hope everyone had a great Holiday, and we hope to hear from you all soon!
