So, I got hit by a truck.
I know it's not really a great excuse for ignoring the blog for a month, but I do feel somewhat justified. As this blog is all about Vivi's life, and I have, until the past week, been somewhat absent from Vivi's major doings.
This is the worst part of the whole accident. I cannot do a lot of the Mom things that I love to do, and Russ is (an awesome) full time house runner/dad. Vivi, with her natural tenacity, has been amazing about the whole thing. She was SUPER IMPRESSED that I got to ride in a "Clambulence", and likes to come over to me and tell me that I have "owies on my legs," and "a BIG CAST." True and true.
She has also been spending some time with the ever-patient Aunt Kate and Noah, who were so kind as to give Russ the occasional break so he could do fun things like mow the lawn (whee!).
She had a lot of fun with them.
As you can see.
I think Noah occasionally had his fill of Vivi. Here he makes a valiant attempt to escape yet another cousin photo op...
And neither one of them seem thrilled about the cousin-train photo op...
It's okay. Ice cream after the zoo cures all.
And Vivi's reaction is a little frightening in its intensity.
Then it was off to the park! Where Vivi displayed inspiration from her recent zoo visit.
I have been to this park many times, and know she is totally safe. However, when Kate showed me these pictures after they came home, my heart still flip-flopped.
Thankfully, she did stop playing monkey long enough to play "America's Next Top Model--Playground Shoot."
Thank you, Aunt Kate and Noah, for all the help you gave us (and still give us!) during my recovery! We love you very much!
