I Need a Time Machine

It seems like it has been forever since I my last post... and I don't even know where to begin. In the past few weeks our household has been crazy! I mean CRAZY!!! First mom gets sick and is in the hospital for 5 days.(Thank you for all of your kind words, thoughts, and prayers! Mom is doing much better and we go for another check up with the neurologist next week.) In the mean time, while I am at the hospital, Matt gets the twins registered for St. Paul's. After I bring mom home from the hospital on Sunday, Paityn and Conner have the stomach bug, I catch it a few hours later, then Matt gets it too! Not good to have a sick mommy and daddy plus sick babies! Next...we have to get flood insurance...which is not needed but a mistake was made so we have to have it temporarily. By Wednesday, I lost my voice and have congestion, and by Sunday, Matt is sick with the congestion stuff too! Boy oh boy...I don't even remember what has gone on besides all of this crazy stuff! But THANK GOD I think we are all getting healthier and are feeling much better. The only thing I continued to think about during all of this was how blessed we are to have what we have and it could always be worse. Whew.. I think I can finally take a breath!

However in the mist of everything that has gone on in the last few weeks, Matt and I have good news to share!! Paityn and Conner are both finally fully walking!!!! For the past several months they both have been walking some...but still would crawl majority of the time. I was beginning to get concerned but our Pediatrician continued to tell us everything was normal and that Paityn and Conner were just fine. She would say, "It's not that they can't walk...they just don't want to!" I was beginning to think they would be two and still crawling the way it seemed. Haha I know that is a little drastic but in the moment you feel that way and Matt and I would joke about it quite often. But now Paityn and Conner and doing great! Paityn started fully walking the Saturday before the craziness started and Conner more so started this week. All we have to say is it is about time!!!!
