back in action!

Rasa was in the ER with croup on Sunday night/Monday morning. Adia was in urgent care Monday night and diagnosed with pneumonia (again).

Two days later they are back in action with more energy than they had before! Nana came down today to get them out of my hair so I could get some work done and rest (summer cold) and even with a trip to the pool couldn't wear them out!

my goofs!

After the girls go to bed (around 8:30 every night now) they stay up in their room, each of them facing each other at the end of their beds) and they talk, sing and goof around for about 45 minutes before they fall asleep. Royce and I finally get some time to relax and enjoy each others company before we go to sleep at night and I love it, I really do. Every single night, even though it's always unplanned, we talk about the girls. They are so cool. I tell him things they said and did that day while he was at work and he tells me things they said and did while he was playing with them after dinner. It's funny because the newness of having children has sort of worn off. We feel like even though half the time we still don't always know what we're doing, we know THEM well. We don't have that hard time fathoming that we are parents and they are actually our own kids like we did in the early days. It's cool. Even cooler is that feeling of being overwhelmed with love for them remains the same, and I'm sure it always will.

Knowing who they are now it's even more exciting as we wonder, what will they "be". What things will excite them. What will they do.

Last year at this time we were roasting in the sun hanging out at the community pool everyday....enjoying and loving every minute of it. This spring has SUCKED weather wise! Today I was bound and determined to spend the day outside because it's the first day in a long time that it has been dry. Even though it was 59 degrees we decided to walk Richfield's finest Penn Ave and take in a couple playgrounds before heading to Cone Brothers for some homemade ice cream. The girls and I have fun and you know what? It did actually feel like summer.
Happy Weekend!
