Finally an Update

Yes, I still blog, I guess. I have been so busy with two girls, and I've competely forgotten what life as a mother of one was like. It must have been a lot easier, but it didn't seem like it. Even though I don't feel like I have a minute to just sit most days, I feel so blessed to have my two girls, they are truly amazing.
Well to summarize our life the last few months...we celebrated Josie's 3rd birthday, had a wonderful Halloween and Thanksgivng....and I can't believe it's almost Christmas! (We cut down our own Christmas tree this year, it was a lot harder to find a tree than we expected.) Anyway, instead of writing a bunch of stuff that no one is going to read, I'm just going to post a bunch a pictures from the last few months. Enjoy!

The Last Few Weeks

I feel like I should be folding the laundry, or maybe taking a much needed nap right now but alas I am updating the blog. The last 6 weeks have flown by with the birth of Lilah, fourth of July, my birthday, painting the house, Lilah's blessing and Russell's back surgery... I guess we've been pretty busy!
I decided that having two kids is a lot more work than one or I guess Josie is a lot more work now that she has a little sister. She's had a hard time adjusting to life as a non only child but the hardest thing has been trying to keep Lilah alive, Josie is so 'helpful', she's always trying to pick Lilah up, hug her, kiss her, pull on her limbs, headbutt her, dance with her, feed her food, wake her up, etc etc etc.... I don't think it ever stops, it's a bit exhausting. But despite the added 'stress' lately, somehow I'm the happiest I've ever been.

Josie LOVED the fireworks on the 4th.

Josie in her old bibby. Lilah's blessing.... yes my eyes are closed but unfortunately this is the best picture.

This is Russ just before going into surgery. He had surgery on his back for a herniated disc this last Tuesday. He's doing well and we're all hoping for a quick recovery!

Baby Lilah

These photos were taken the first week and half of Lilah's life, I can't believe she's already over 3 weeks old and I also can't believe how much different she already looks. :( Thank you Laura for taking these beautiful pictures!

Maternity Pictures

I know I'm a little late posting these.... they were taken about a week before I had Lilah. Thank you Laura!
