How It Has Been

Can I please say thank goodness the bed rest is behind us! I am healed completely from surgery and everything is back to "normal" around here. Eli is a Very easy baby, no offense to anyone with kids without severe disabilities but well babies are a BREEZE if you are Brad and Alissa. With that said ask me how I feel about this when he is walking-HA!!! He is teeny tiny with BIG eyes and sweet sweet sweet! He has a mean appetite, sleeps pretty darn good, and loves to be held.

Have no idea what they're looking at,
but how precious is this!?!

Just to challenge myself a bit more we made the very difficult decision to keep Donavon home from school for now. He has had two very bad seizures due to illness since he started school, the latest being in early July. After 2 days in the hospital and lots of tears on my part Brad and I felt it was in his best interest to keep him home for now. Since then Donavon, Eli, and I have come up with a routine that works for us and it runs much smoother around here these days. Donavon is still like a 3-6 month old so raising two infants can get interesting at times. Donavon likes Eli most of the time. All of the noises and crying he does keeps Donavon entertained throughout the day. What he does not like is all of the attention Eli takes away from him, but he'll adjust. Hope you enjoy the new pics and I also hope that all is well :).
