The Kids

You know, it's really hard...

to get anything done...


when you have a face like this...


and, of course, this face, too...


to look at all day long.

Of course, she's not ALWAYS happy...

but when she calms down...

she's still totally adorable.

and so is he, even though he's two.


I haven't blogged about Natalie a lot, well, because I've been busy, and also because, I don't want anyone to be jealous! :) She is such an easy, sweet baby, and now she's getting to be so smiley and fun. She smiles at me and Zachary and Daddy and even other people sometimes, and she wants to be with us when we're doing things in the kitchen. She doesn't sleep through the night quite yet, but she usually only eats once, and it's between 4 and 5:30 typically, so that is a pretty good night's rest, and if Z cooperates, sometimes I even get to go back to bed afterwards. :) I am really enjoying her, and she is definitely an easy baby, so that makes my adjustment to having two children easier for sure.

Zachary and Natalie usually interact really well, and watching them play together is one of the greatest joys of my life up to this point! I know it will only get more fun (and probably more challenging) as they can interact more and Natalie can respond more.

One more thing: if you could pray for us right now, Z is having some digestive/dietary issues - nothing too serious, just some mild but persistent digestive symptoms (no details, I'm sure you'll thank me later), and he is not sleeping well, and seems tired a lot of the time most every day. We are trying different dietary tweaks to see if we can eliminate the problem that way, and trying not to worry about him, and we have an appointment with a specialist coming up in less than two weeks. I just want my little boy to feel well, so please pray that the doctors will be able to figure out the problem quickly and without painful tests. :(

Other than that, our family is doing well, and enjoying the springtime mud which is slowly emerging from our tall snowdrifts.

I love seeing photos of them both. I agree, very difficult to get anything done.

I hope that little boy of yours starts to feel better soon.
