Quick Update

Just a quick update to let you know we are all doing fine!  Matt and I both came through our surgery an post-op great!  It was quite a challenge to have us both have surgeries and then Brian (Matt's dad) also had surgery a week or so after mine and all of this happened between Thanksgiving and Christmas!  It was crazy for sure, but thankfully, we have amazing family and friends that came through to take care of us and the kids and now we are pretty much back to normal.  We had a wonderful Christmas, just a little slower pace than usual, which was nice.  Harper is walking now, I am not sure if she was the last time I posted but she is running now! It is amazing to see her go, too.  She is still so tiny, just 16 lbs 13 oz as of yesterday, so she looks like this tiny infant that walks.  I will post a video if  I can ever catch her to take one! She is doing great, though, and really trying to talk and do all kinds of things.  Both girls had a virus, and Harper had an ear infection to go with hers, last week.  They were both pitiful.  Billie is much better, but Harper is still fighting hers off.  Makes sense that hers would take a little longer to pass.  She still has a fever and is grumpy and not eating or sleeping good, but she has really done great with it, all things considered.  Harper loves Billie so much and just wants to play with her and sit with her and no one in this world can make Harper laugh like Billie can.  It is so magical the laugh that Billie can get from Harper Grace. I know that is a very very short update, but I had some sweet emails from followers asking if we were OK and I hated to go any longer with out an update, but this is all I have time for now.  Having a toddler and a 12 year old really keeps me busy!!! (And I wouldn't want it any other way, either!) Love and God Bless to you all and thanks, too!
