We’re alive, I promise. I’m sorry we haven’t been updating much. I went back to work last week, and life just got real busy real quick. ( :
First, we want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Aunt Megan. We love you very much, and we couldn’t be more proud of the woman you are and the woman you are becoming. ( :
There isn’t a lot to update. Like I said, I’m back at work now, and I couldn’t be happier. It gets boring at home!! Anja is such a big girl. She can count to 25. She knows all of her letters, and she knows a word that starts with almost all of them (M is Mummy (or Mike), D is Daddy (or Daisy), L is Lindsay, R is Ruby, H is Hoaken, etc… She is also speaking in full sentences and she is quite the chatter-box. I love, love, love spending my day with her. Thankfully, she has taken right quickly to Ruby. She loves to help me feed Ruby and change her “nappies” (all you Americans, read “diapers.”) She quite a helper, and we’re happy to announce that she is going to be a BIG SISTER in August!! Wahoo! ( : Times are so fun right now. We’re looking forward to summer and all the joys it brings.
On the Ruby front, things are going well. We have been out of the hospital and not to the doctor’s office for a full two weeks. I’m pretty sure that’s a record!!! ( : Tomorrow is Ruby’s normal two-month check-up. She will be getting quite a few shots, so pray that she doesn’t feel to icky after her appointment. We’re very intrigued to find out how much she’s grown. She fits well into newborn clothes now, so we feel like she’s going to show some good improvement. Way to go, Ruby!! She is starting to do better at night, and she’s awake a little more often during the days now. She’s also starting to become very alert. ( : It’s fun to imagine how God has shaped Ruby…watching her emerge will sure be a blessing. ( :
We’ll update tomorrow with all the new stats, for sure.
We love you all!!
