"happy to you!"

Raven is officially 2, though she has been acting 2 for quite a while now :) She has been singing " you! you!" for about a month (ever since her best friends birthday in april). We had a fun day celebrating with a little cupcake for breakfast, gymnastics later that morning, and out to dinner (which is more of a treat for Matt and I than it is for Raven ~ but we are celebrating 2 years of parenthood as well!).

We also had friends over the next day to celebrate with more cupcakes, as requested by the birthday girl! It was a small gathering, a rainy seattle day, but Raven had a fun time with friends!

making the most of a sunny day!

Matt has been working a lot these last couple weeks, and I have been home...sick...with 2 sick girls (we just found out yesterday that hazel has a double ear infection again or still). Anyways, this last weekend was very beautiful and very sunny! Matt took Friday off to spend the day with us, so we went to the zoo in the morning and in the afternoon we walked down to the beach for dinner. Here are a few pics :)

poor girl

We have been very slowly recovering this week from being sick all last week. Poor little Raven has never had diaper rash, and her buns are so red with open sores. I think she pooped 15 times today...seriously...and she cried every time (which was pretty much all morning). When Hazel got up from her nap I went up to nurse her, and of course Raven was not happy about it. She was crying and crying and crying and suddenly it got really quiet. This is what I found.

Fast asleep.

Hazel's Dedication

Phew! What a week this has been. Wednesday we found out that Hazel had an ear infection, so we got her medicated and she was vomiting that night. Its very hard to see such a little baby so sick. Thursday she was better but Raven was starting to get a cold. By Friday afternoon Raven had a fever, so we rushed over to the Dr. because I knew we would need something for the weekend. She too had an ear infection.

We made it to Mother's Day fully medicated, a bit tired, but we were there to dedicate Hazel to the Lord. As I mom I am learning that the hardest part about my job is lifting my girls up to the Lord and giving Him authority over their lives. I know I worry too much, and I think I have total control over them as their mom. I am learning every day to pray for their lives, their choices, their futures, their husbands, etc. I'm a work in progress, but I love my family :)
