where to begin....

Happy 4th of July
Ok so it has only been a month and a half... I can't really even say that we've been that busy, just busy with the day to day stuff mostly. Although, there has been a lot happening around here and with our family! Shortly after our last post our 2 nieces were born, one on June 30, and the next one the day after! That was crazy so there are now 4 cousins within 5 months of each other. It is already so fun to do family gatherings and we can't wait to watch them grow and be best buds and to have absolute craziness at the Miller house during family gatherings!

Shyler is little Miss Princess and really really is into dressing up in her tutu and dress up shoes and listening to Princess music, or "temple music", also known as Mormon Tabernacle Choir. (F YI- she did that all on her own). She loves the princess movies and is quite the couch potato if we let her and will watch the whole movie or mickey mouse. She is still very much into touching Adam and of course being a big helper even when she's not needed. She is very silly sometimes and when she's not driving me crazy she makes me laugh!

She also fell asleep on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night, she went to get a tissue and this is how I found her...

Adam is Mr. Crawler. He is doing a modified army crawl and rolling everywhere. He loves remotes and phones even more than Shyler did if that is at all possible. He's eating more solids and recovering from his hernia surgery and doing pretty well. It was hard to leave him with his nurse but it all worked out fine. He came out of surgery and sounded like he did the day he was born... his little sheep baa-ing. He is not the best sleeper and wakes me up to eat around 3:30 and then wakes up at 6 mostly because he wants to be held or something, that is the conclusion we've come up with. But then we fall asleep until around 7 or 7:30 if I'm really lucky... I miss the days of sleeping until 8 even... One day it will come!

Just chillin in the bath. After his surgery we have had to give him 20 minute baths 4 times a day! That's a lot of bath time!

Last week Tim and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary! My mom came down and watched the kids and we had a picnic in the park for lunch and played catch. Then we went downtown to the Chophouse for dinner. It was so good! Tim got a steak and I got a ginormous burger with the best ever sweet potato fries! That was my favorite part. We were going to get Coldstone for old times sakes, but I couldn't even think of eating one more thing, but at least Tim got some ice cream at home!

So that is most of our crazy life in a nut shell! We are looking forward to cooler weather and fun times together as a family and for me to not go crazy with 2 kids home all day with me!
