Catching up!

Its been so long since I've posted that I don't quite know where to begin! The last month has been full of fun summer activities, re-roofing our house, Trent and I seeing our cardiologist, new teeth coming through, cancelled appointments, anniversaries, and a fun visit from Grandma!

We survived the re-roofing project, and the 3 days of no napping... (it was loud!) Here's a look at the roof, halfway done...

Trent and I both had cardiology appointments a few weeks ago that went really well. We had ekgs and echos done and were both given a clean bill of heart health. I had been really anxious to get through these appointments, nervous that something would come up- so this was a huge relief and answer to prayer!

Speaking of answered prayers, Teagan was scheduled to have eye surgery tommorrow to clear up her clogged tear duct she's had since birth. The surgery that she was supposed to have is pretty invasive requiring her to be asleep and intubated while a small tube is placed in her duct which stays for 6 months to open up that pathway. Amazingly, in the last 2 weeks her eye seems to have cleared up on its own! We were always told that it could clear up on its own as she grows bigger, but if not by 1 yr. then probably not at all without surgery. I have been praying about this for some time, dreading yet another procedure/hospital stay, and I'm happy to report that her surgery and related post op procedures have all been CANCELLED!

My mom (Grandma) just left to go home yesterday after a fun-filled two week visit. During her stay Trent and I celebrated our anniversary and spent the evening out to dinner and a movie!(thanks mom!)
It was so nice having my mom here the last few weeks and we miss her already! The kids got a few new toys, we laughed a ton, went to the park and pool, baked lots of goodies, took a few day trips, walked, and just enjoyed having her around!
Here's a picture of Teag saying,"pleeaase!" Probably asking grandma for something, she knows the answer is always- yes!

First trip to the pool... the water was cold so I only let her put her feet in. That was enough to get her lips the same color as her swimsuit but she loved it!

I've been wondering what you guys have been up to!! I'm so THRILLED that Tegan didn't need her tear duct surgery.. we put off Kamryn's til she was 5 and then finally gave in.

HAPPY (late) Anniversary to you as well.

I love the walrus photo.. cracked me up.

Teagan is getting SO big. I love the blue swimsuit. Do her lips always turn blue in water?? Owen's do in the tub, shower or pool (and we live in the pool).

Oh YAY YAY YAY!!! I was just going to call you. Our apt was suppose to be today and I had it written on the wrong day. I guess I won't be seeing you! That is so great!

Teag looks darling as usual!!

It was so fun seeing you guys last week- I'm looking forward to you coming and staying for the run! The girls are so funny together, I'm still laughing about their kissing episode at the pool. Too cute!!! Thanks for coming up and hope you're surviving without your mom being there, I'm sure you were sad to see her go. Have a great week!
