6 weeks---turns into 2 months

Well, I have been a terrible blogger. I am still having some issues with our pictures, and computer issues are really, really frustrating to me-so I just avoid the problem.

We are doing great. I am able to get out with the 2 girls (winco, wal mart, tj maxx, costco...), and I am getting better at loading and unloading 2 instead of 1.

Evie Jane is adorable. She is so much chubbier than Maggie was, and I am loving it! Her little thighs are utterly delicious, and her little smiles just make my day (and make me forget about any tiredness). She is sleeping from 11:00pm to 5:30am most nights. Unfortunately Maggie has been getting up earlier so that means my mornings are usually starting around 5:30.
Evelyn can hold her head up really well, and likes to be held so that she can look around, or if she is fussy she prefers to be held on her stomach. She loves her swing, and will occasionally just lie on the floor kicking her chubby legs.

The girls and I are flying down to New Orleans on Monday for my grandmother's funeral. We will miss our sweet grandma Evelyn, and I am sad that she didn't get to meet her little namesake. But I have many sweet memories of her hugs, and her gardening or just sitting outside, and of her delicious treats she made for holidays.
Well, hopefully I will work up the courage to deal with the photo issues I am having and get some pictures up here...

Go Saints!

We cheered the Saints on to victory Sunday night with some friends and some chips and dip and sausages. (is there any other way to do it?) I made the girls some Saints gear with gold puff paint-it was fun, and I think puff paint should make a comeback...
Maggie loves watching football, and when Reggie Bush ran onto the field she said "that's my boy!". And this morning I was changing Evie Jane's Diaper and Maggie was saying "who dat".
I am glad she gets into the spirit of things.

3 weeks

I have been having trouble uploading photos, so I decided to just post this without any.
It is a whole week late, and I will continue to work on getting some pictures up...

I can't believe our little Evie Jane is 3 weeks old! She is doing great-and is more alert every day. Yesterday at church she gave us some really sweet smiles (and it wasn't gas). She is a pretty good sleeper, too. Usually I only get up once to feed her. We are loving our new little one!
