Back to blogging:) some fun pics

Our busy little family of four

So life has been super crazy and absolutely no time for blogging. Peter ended up spending 3 weeks in the NICU, he is now home, almost 2 weeks. Evan's family came into town, and then just lots going on. We are still trying to fix up the house a little so lots of projects.

Having bottles before naptime:)

Peter is still healing, but doing remarkably better than before. We went for his post-op followup appointment, and everything is looking great. We just have to wait to see what happens now with the swallow study and will see if there are anymore surgeries to be had. Until then, we are weaning him off of his steroid inhaler and trying to work with his horrible acid reflux. The last two nights have been better for him, and there is hope for future sleep:) I think the new way of administrating the meds is helping him get all of them.

Evan's family came in to town to help welcome Grandma Betty and Grandpa Romney back from their mission in Chile. Everyone was able to come except for one Aunt who had to work..we missed you Laura! Miles went through the temple. Geoff and Cindy hosted a couple bbq's and family pictures. Lots of Kid activities and just sitting around at the dinner table and hanging out. I will post family pictures soon, my friend Irene took a bunch. Evan has a few more weeks until school starts up again. This year he is teaching Math and Science..a new challenge.

Lucy is teething..4 teeth to be exact. This is making life harder for her and sad. She never wakes up in the night unless she is teething or sick, so between Peter's scheduling and her teething schedule we are all a little sleep deprived. I guess the upside is that she has been sleeping in until 9 or 10 some days. She is so cute though. She is dancing to music, singing, going up and down the stairs constantly, and likes to be the life of the party. I am just glad she likes playing by herself a lot too, that has helped while we take care of Peter. Lucy is loving getting to know her cousins on Evan's side and climb all over them, chase, etc. so fun!

I am good. I love that my chiropractor is helping me out, and that I am finally able to walk a little better. Hopefully one more session will be good for a while. I am going to get a massage soon, I have been looking forward to that for quite some time. I have my 6 week check soon, and then the liver doctor will start in on checking out my liver and why it is so big.

Evan and I are getting more organized. We have decided that it takes too much time and energy worrying about other people and worrying if we are offending them or always making our choices revolve around other people's comfort zones, so we are starting to take care of us more. Our marriage, family, children and selves are much more important, so sorry in advance if you think we are ignoring or being selfish, we have to put our family first.

We are planning a stay-cation in November. So if you have any ideas of what we could do, please comment. Peter isn't allowed in the mountains, so we have to keep anything we do close to Denver and home.

We all dressed like cows on July 9th for Cow appreciation day and got free food from Chick-fil-a. SOOOO YUMMY. Unfortunately I only got a picture of Evan...a guy in the truck next to us saw him and couldn't stop laughing. This was the costume I wore in high school.

I feel so behind in blogging, so hopefully I will catch up one of these days. For now this is what you get:)
