We're still here!

Hello. We are alive. Sleep deprived, but alive. We are all doing well. Anya is a month old today. The boys are busy. THEY are not sleep deprived:/ That's about it. I will post more pictures at some future date.

We are all doing well. Here are just a few photos to show what we are up to and how Anya is growing.

A friend gave us a Bumbo and Hans has claimed it as his own and re-named it "bum-ee-o"

Is that a smile?!?

Such a big girl!!

Last week

Tomorrow is a big day. Jeremiah goes back to work and I start my first week on my own with all three kids. I am so thankful and fortunate to have had 3 weeks with people here to help out.
This past week was a lot of fun. Jeremiah was home and we did some fun things as a family. Ethan started pre-school and that went well. Anya continues to grow and Hans is Hans:)

Grandma Martin's visit

Last week Mom came up to stay with us and help us out. We had a great week and we all miss her. Hans is anticipating when Grandpa Phil will come and often asks about him:)

We are doing well. The boys are having fun with their aunts and Grandma who are coming to help us out. Anya is doing well. She is sleeping 3 and 4 hours at a time at night. We had a Dr. appointment today and she weighs 8 lb so she does not have to go back until she is 2 months old.
Becky made a picnic lunch for us yesterday that we ate under the laundry. We are having just lovely weather.

Here she is!
