Finally home

Sorry for the wait but we have needed some time to adjust to having two kids around here and I am discovering that it will not happen quickly. Elena was released from the hospital yesterday and I was so excited to go over and see her and be able to dress her in a cute dress and bow. It was wonderful feeling bringing her through the door and showing her to Patrick. I only have car seat pictures so far. Last night was a little rough because our schedules are not quite in sync yet so she was hungry and I had nothing to give her. Luckily I remembered the breast milk I have been pumping and saving in the fridge. By 4 am I got her tummy full and she slept until 7:00 am. We took her to the doctor along with Patrick for his 2 year check up today and everything is looking good. Her doctor said I was lucky to be here and to have the children I have and I know she is right.
Also, today is Patricks second birthday!! I cant believe he is two! It seems like yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. I love him so much and I am so thankful to have such a smart active little boy. He certainly keeps us on our toes but he keeps us laughing at the same time. He is quite a talker, anyone who has met him must know. He loves to try out new things and his loves are motorcycles, driving, learning his letters, playing outside with Caleb and hopefully his new love is his baby sister. P.S. we are up for visitors if anyone wants to come by. I dont really look that great but you are welcome.
