Just a quick update to let you all know I'm still alive. We've been busy with life. Penn View was here this past week with a trio. The girls and I went to the Farm Show up in Harrisburg. It was really neat! I never knew cows could be clean and actually look beautiful. I had a great time and want to go back next year. (I know, I know, I'm becoming a country girl) We've also been battling with sick kids. Both girls have been sick. Katrin's on an antibiotic and Kallie still has a cough and runny nose.

In the morning, the girls and I are leaving for Cinci!! We're staying at my mom's, of course, and will be in town for about a week. Paul has to work and preach so he won't be joining us this time. This will be the longest we've been apart since the girls were born. If you think of it, pray for us while we travel.

Well I'm off to fold laundry....hurray!!

Blue not Pink

Katrin has double pink and this is what she told me yesterday, "Mommy, my eyes are blue, not pink" I love my little girl. She's so sweet!!

Yesterday, for the first time in a VERY VERY long time... Kallie took a bottle. After investing in oodles of Avent bottles and pump and many other brands of bottles she finally took a 4 oz. Dr. Brown's bottle!! Thanks to the many of you who gave/sold me Avent bottles, I am still using them to pump but Kallie will have nothing to do with them. I'm just thankful she will finally take a bottle without any problems. I can finally go out for longer than a few hours! She really is a very good baby but a bit picky when it comes to her feeding source. The child doesn't even like rice cereal, so we went straight on to baby food, the favorite being pears at the moment.

We stayed home from church this morning to let Katrin get some much needed rest and to may sure her eyes were doing better. But I think we might try church tonight. I'm getting cabin fever... haven't left the house since Friday evening. Her eyes aren't gooping anymore and they are pretty much all clear. So, off I go to get her bathed and to get both kids dressed for church.
