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.

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!
