Busy Bee

So I haven't updated in awhile so this is just a pish posh of what's going on in our lives.

Life just seems to be going by so fast lately. Anna is about to be 12 weeks old. 12 weeks! Where did the time go?!?! I feel like I was in the hospital yesterday worrying about her, and now here we are 12 weeks later just living life like nothing was ever wrong. I think with the second child time just goes so much faster and there is little time to just sit and enjoy all the little things. I try to take it all in with her when I get the chance, but there are few chances lately.

Lilla is just really growing up and on the go. She started gymnastics several weeks ago and is just taking off with it. For some reason she could never jump, and she spent a ridiculous amount of time every day for months trying to jump. Now, she is a hopping fool. My little jumper.

We were fortunate enough last week to get a trampoline with Lilla's birthday money and by selling our old fridge we had just sitting in the garage for the last year. We decided she loves gymnastics so much, why not? She has been having the time of her life on that thing! So Lilla and I have been out there every day just hopping away. And let me tell you, it is quite the workout! I am going to have great legs this summer!

The girls and I have all been sick this past week with sinus infections. Poor Anna does not like the antibiotics. And, they don't like her either! Ugh, it's not been pretty. Hopefully we'll all be better soon. I think we're on the upswing! Seems just about everyone has been sick lately so I don't feel alone.

Anna is getting so big! She already weighs 14 lbs! Lilla only weighed 18 lbs when she turned 1!! So, you can imagine what a difference it is for me. I don't carry her in the carseat like I carried Lilla. She is much more in the sling. It's not as hard on my back. She is smiling all the time now, laughing, loves to watch her sister and likes to hold on to things. Anna is so curious and just wants to be held and she is happy as a little lark. She's really a cutie pie!

Next on the docket is Anna's baby dedication and party next weekend and the following weekend we are going to San Francisco! Yeah! It will be so nice to take a long weekend and just get away. Of course Anna is going, as I nurse her. Lilla, however, is having her first weekend away from us. Hopefully she does well!

Oh, and just because I know you can all use a laugh you go!!

The reason Isabella's talking in a directed, full sentence is such a big deal is because she is autistic! Not deeply but enough that she is in a special school. We are so blessed that we are getting the help we need!

Your Peanut will do just fine. Just keep on loving her like you do.

love, g

I know what you mean about time going by SO fast! It's just speeding up too!
I got my little girl into gymnastics and she loves it! All that running and tumbling . . by the end of the hour she's wiped out! Which is perfect!
