"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)

I LOVE that oldie photo! I've always been able to see Vaeh's personality through her eyes and I can still see that from her tiny days. Sorry to hear your nebulizer is out and being used. Hopefully soon you can shut it down for a few months. Ours has been out here and there. I can't wait to put it away for the summer!

Sorry to hear about your family member passing away. :( Will send prayers. Have a great rest of your week!!

It's great to hear from you, Tina! I hope Vaeh manages to stay well....so she can concentrate on playing outside instead of having those nasty breathing treatments!

Loved seeing the older photo of her! It brings back memories of Emma at that age for me, too....we are both blessed indeed!

Give that little miracle girl a big hug from us! And big sister, too! ;)

Lots of Love & Prayers,

Wendy (& Emma, too!)

I am glad to hear that everyone is doing good. I hope Vaeh gets to feeling better real soon and it does not turn into anything serious.

Sorry to hear about your family. Lots of prayers coming your way. And hugs to.

What an adorable picture! I've been a blog slacker myself so don't feel bad. I'm glad the girls are doing well. Hopefully you can get blogger to work so you can upload some pics of the girls. :)
