Life Happens

It's been a busy life for us since baby #3 joined the family. I've been lax in updating the blog. So here's a brief recap of a few things that happened the past two weeks:
  • Ran out of wipes tonight (this should never happen!)
  • Ate asparagus four times
  • Girls to dance class and library on Saturdays (Mary and I take turns taking them)
  • Painted baby's room (lovely shade of pink)
  • Gram came to visit (thank you, thank you, thank you!)
  • Cat escaped the house multiple times
  • Dinner with friends who joined us on the trip to France
  • KU Med Annual Dinner
  • Attended one six year old birthday party
  • New carpeting installed
  • Marveled at the belly button falling off
  • Cleaned litter boxes every other day
  • Changed x number of diapers (I have no idea how many - just that Mary changed more)
  • Three trips to Costco
  • Attended one parent/teacher conference
  • Cleaned the house
  • Got the house dirty
  • Installed bunk beds, dresser and side table in girls room
  • Woke up each morning with the three girls in our bed and me in the middle getting kicked, scraped and pushed around. Mary says not to complain, but I am not a morning person.
  • Took 247 photos of our new daughter with her sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, coworkers and the doctor who gave Mary the epidural.
I'm sure I've left a few things out, but even so that's nothing compared to what Mary has been doing!

Yea! Speaking of photos... when you get a second (which I know doesn't happen...) can I get a couple of the photos of Maggie and I? That would be great!

Also... Happy Feast Day! I thought of you at Mass today because it is the Memorial of St. Luke and he is the patron saints of Painters. During the homily, Abbot Barnabus told us to think of and be thankful for all of the great painters in our life, and I thought of you!

Hope you have an amazing day and give everyone a giant hug from me! Thanks!

Hi Dan,
Do tell us about baby #3 - waiting for details. Any word on Andy's yet?

Okay Barb L. I know who you are... tried to email you but got an old work address I guess.

Olson's had baby boy #2 last night. He weighed in at 9.5... ugh! Going by Henry Michael, but I think at that weight we might need to call him Hank the Tank. We'll have to wait until we meet him to decide on that!

I'll be giving updates on baby #3 soon. She's doing great and the family is rockin' along!
