Coming back around

Yikes. The distance between this post and my last is indicative of our life. It's been an incredible couple of months. Please browse the photo slideshow below, but here's the run-down:
  • Emily's been sick. She's been happy, but sick. Lots of thick secretions and TONS of coughing through the day and night. We've been tweaking her diet with breast milk and changing the fluid intake, etc and that has helped some with the secretion overload. Some of this has to do with some old molars flaring up as they come in too. She's doing much better now, but there have been few outings with the Lee family as of late.
    From January '09
  • It' snowed this Spring and I took Emily and Annabelle on the saucer down our little... Mhm, "hill." They both loved it! There are some pics in the slideshow.
    From January '09
  • Annabelle is doing well. We're hoping to get her into piano and/or gymnastics soon. She's doing her own in the house, so we might as well make it official and get her some training. :)
    From January '09
  • Oh, oh -- Annabelle had an awesome slumber party for her B'day - be sure to check out those pictures in the slide show - PARTICULARLY DIANA'S CAKE!!

  • Diana has been putting in long hours with Emily due to her being sick and all. Also b/c our nursing situation is not very good. Cancellations, inadequate skills, funky scheduling, and such have whittled us down to 1.5 nurses right now. We're praying that will take care of itself soon and that we will start seeing some good nurses.
    From January '09
  • We back down to Emily's van and my motorcycle for transportation. The Honda served us well, while it could. We have good friends who lend us their extra vehicle when we need it, but it's temporary - so we're also praying for a new car. Ideally something with 4 doors and a killer deal - and by that I mean free. :) If you here of anything please let us know!!
    From January '09
So, those things, cold weather, hanging out, and general surviving are what we've been up to. I regret that I have nothing tantalizing to say in this post. I try to be strange in some way to make it interesting, but there it is, that's all I got tonight! Follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates!!

I've been thinking about Emily and wondering how she is doing. Thanks for the update and pictures. I enjoy keeping up with your family, partly because you remind me of Drew's family: upbeat, optimistic and loving!
