Life is Good

We have been home three weeks now and it seems like this has been our family forever. Things couldn't be sweeter. Life couldn't be better. The girls are having so much fun together and I feel so blessed each and every day. Ila is the best big sister and she is so grown up and I am so proud of her. She watches over her baby sister and takes such good care of her. Even if Ruby left a perfect bite imprint on her arm! Ouch!! And Ruby is adjusting better than I ever hoped. She walks around singing her ABC's and repeats most everything we say. Of course there are moments (which sometimes seems like hours) of competition and whining and the classic "SHE'S TOUCHING ME!" but that goes with the territory.

Scott is working out in California and we are packing up and going to visit for a whole month. That will give him a break from coming home on weekends and we can have dinner as a family every night (yeah!). Ila asks every day about going to Disneyland and meeting the princesses. She is also convinced that "Sparky" the seal at Como Zoo has moved to California to be with her sisters and she is going to visit them on the beach while we are there. She is SO excited!

Here's some highlights of our last few weeks...
