Catching up!

October 19, 2009

I’ve rapidly discovered that finding the time to update anything internet related is much more difficult with two kids than one!! My apologies to anyone who is waiting on an email, a thank you card, or even a new picture album from us…between the massive amounts of laundry, Ruby being sick with a fever and cough, and a newborn who is growing so fast and is constantly hungry, I am having trouble finding the time to do much else!

We’ve had a busy almost three weeks with family in town. It’s been wonderful to have the help! This week is our first week alone, and my friends have set up a food tree to help us out! Woohoo!

Sylvie had her two week check up this past Wednesday and is already 9lbs 1oz. She is growing and thriving, and has been having much more alert periods! She loves to stare at the fans or the blinds. She’ll be three weeks in just a couple days – we can’t believe it!

Ruby is a great big sister. She is still so in love with Sylvie, and helps whenever she can, especially when it involves changing a diaper or dressing her. Ruby’s had a cold, which has made things a little harder for her (and me and Grandma!), and last night the cold turned into a fever. We hope she gets over it fast, and that no one else in the house catches it!

The restaurant has been really busy and Brian is so tired. He’s getting some more rest as I type this…Hopefully he’ll be able to catch up soon. Having a baby at the busiest time of year probably wasn’t the best planning on our part! Next time maybe we’ll try for a February birthday…HA!

Truthfully, though, we are so incredibly content with the size of our family. We have two beautiful, healthy daughters, and can’t wait to continue to watch them grow! Here are some pictures from the past two weeks…I have a million, so weeding them down to just this many has been difficult!
