Finally some pictures from TN

Well I finally got my new camera and I'm very much enjoying it.
Here are some pictures of us enjoying the backyard. I can't tell
you how absolutely awesome it is to have a yard with a fence.
Brayden and Mooch can't get enough of it!!! Brayden goes out there
all by himself; he either climbs through the doggie door or goes into
the garage and opens the garage door... thank goodness there is a fence!!!!

The monkey girl playing in her excersaucer, it's so nice to have these

contraptions to put your little ones in!! She really enjoys it too, we missed

these when we were at my moms for a whole month.

Brayden is always wet from playing with the hose and sprinklers

(he knows how to work that all by himself too).

We finally got a lawnmower so we can trim this jungle we got goin on.

Lawn care, something we've never had to worry about before.

Brayden's excited about it, can't say that for the rest of us.

Somebody was being a crab and didn't want to take a picture,

can you guess who it was?

What a switch Brayden actually suggested I get the camera so we could take

this picture, silly huh? I see a future priesthood holder in our midst.

Yeah, now he's back to his old tricks, that didn't last very long.

Yeah see here's the Brayden we're used to. The one who isn't so crazy

about his sister. I'm not quite sure what he's doing here.

He mostly just ignores her so at least he is paying attention to her... right?

This monkey girl sure loves to eat!!!

Especially Mommies homemade baby food, yum (that and yo baby yogurt!)

Fun times in the bathtub. These too are both water babies
and now they get to enjoy the bathtub together, it's so fun watching
them in the tubber together. And you gotta love that bumbo chair it's
got like a million different uses but in the water happens to be my favorite!!!

Brayden up to his tricks again. Despite his antics she just loves her brother!

Just look at those lips!!!

There you go grandma hope you enjoy those pics, We love you and miss you.

Any time I say "how's come?" He says "and I love granma too."

We are still alive... I think

We are still alive. Life has been a bit crazy the last few weeks and my camera is finally out of commission for good. I've just ordered a new one online so hopefully I get that soon and start posting more pics again. I'm considering an early birthday present to myself.
Our little Alex gave us a scare and we spent our last weekend visiting granma in the hospital. She has these very weird and scary episodes in which she goes completely limp like a rag doll. Fortunately her myriad of test done in the hospital showed she was A-OK but then what the heck is wrong with her? After that whole fiasco my mom drove with me to TN so we could have her followed up down here with a pediatric neurologist. Well the jury is still out on what exactly is wrong with her, she hasn't had an episode like that for about 3 weeks now so I'm hoping that they are over with and we can postpone the MRI she has scheduled in September! The peds neurologist here didn't think that they were seizures like the one in Rockford did, he even suggested that episodes like this can result from reflux... very interesting huh? and even better basically benign!!!
