"Redonkulous." That's the only way I can describe my lack of blogging lately. Can you tell that the girls have been watching "Bolt" lately? Vaeh's been going around saying "that's redonkulous" here lately, & if you've every seen "Bolt" you will recognize that from the pigeons! She's becoming such a chatter box here lately, taking after her big sister!

Things have been pretty status quo here lately, as far as the girls go. Vaeh has a bit of a cough & runny nose, but that's par for the course, & will probably hang around until the weather improves a bit. We've once again brought out our trusty friend the nebulizer to keep things in check. I'm keeping a really close eye on her though, RSV seems to be rearing its ugly head again:0/

Things were quite busy here at the beginning of March as well. My Aunt's Mother-in-law had been very ill, spending a lot of time between different hospitals & eventually in a local nursing home as they were unable to accurately diagnose her. They finally decided to bring her home in early February as things weren't looking very promising. The first week of March, she passed away so we were busy helping their family out.

Now that the weather is getting nicer (at least it had been getting nicer... we're back into cooler, wetter days here for now) we've been getting out & about more. Vaeh loves being able to go outside & play with her older sister! I'm going to be spending a lot of time out doors this summer!

I've been wanting to post some photos, but for some reason I haven't been able to. Either blogger or my computer haven't let me... that, or they're conspiring against me! (LoL) I gave it another shot today, but with an older photo. Here is Miss Vaeh back in February of 2007, while she was still in the hospital recovering after her first open heart. You can see she still had her NG tube at that point. She was a few weeks shy of turning 5 months old in this photo. (Sorry about the quality, its off of our phone.) Even back then, she was a spitfire! Here she is making faces at Mawmaw during one of our many visits!

She was about 3 and a half weeks from coming home in this picture. Boy were those crazy days. I wondered more often than not back in those days what our outcome would be. Looking at her now, I know that we're blessed indeed!

Hope you are all doing well! I should get going... we're watching "Hannah Montana" again for about the 500th time! (LoL)
