Yes, we're still alive

I am soooooo bad at keeping t his up, sorry. I think most of the readers are on Facebook anyway and I at least update there a little. Life is crazy, hectic. Lily is wonderful and we are enjoying her so much. Fernanda and Rosa are both such great big sisters. They love their baby so much and want to hold her and help feed her. We have had a few struggles with Lily in her short life. She was born with a Syrinx, so we are having to have that monitored yearly by a neurosurgeon, but weems to be ok for now so no worries. A few weeks after she was born, she developed a hemangioma on her back, actually right across the syrinx (although not related to it) so we will take her to a dermatologist in Dec just to have it checked out. And at one of her appointments, they thougth they heard a heart murmur so we visited a cardiologist, but all is well with that. Man little girl, you sure know how to make mommy and daddy worry!
We have also had a little trouble getting her weight up so we are feeding every 2 hours for now until she puts on the lbs...
Fern and Rosa have been troopers and have adjusted well to having a baby in the house. They love that all the grandparents have been coming over ALOT!
We sold our house and bought another one so we are moving next week!!! We are so excited but a little frazzled with everything going on. I told Bill that my New Year's Resolution is to do NOTHING- no adopting, getting pregnant, having a baby, moving, no getting sick or having surgeries (I hope), NOTHING!!! I just want us to relax and enjoy our new house with our family.
We had new family pictures taken a few weeks ago so I'll leave you with them...
And if I don't blog again before Thanksgiving (which is likely) Happy Thanksgiving, we are so thankful this year!

Sounds like a perfectly fitting New Year's Resolution for you guys! Down time if just what you need...if that can be accomplished with 3 little ones in the house. ;)

So excited to hear about your move!

Your babies are beautiful. Next time we are in town, we would love to come see you. I can't believe how much has changed for both our families in the last year!
