catching up

Okay, it's been a long time. My surgery got me all out of sorts and now I really feel like I'm finally catching up with everything... in real life too, not just in blog-land.

I am gallbladderless and it went fine. It was a lot worse than I expected though--a lot of people made it seem like it would be a really simple surgery to recover from but I didn't find that to be true. My parents came and were such a huge help when I really needed them. My belly button incision got infected so I was back visiting the doctor last week but otherwise everything has been fine.

Eli turned 3 months old during my blog-hiatus. I attempted to take him for some real, official 3-month portraits but the little stinker wasn't having any of it. He cried the whole time we were there so it was really a waste of my time. I have lots of pictures but I was really hoping to get some official ones at the milestones. I hope he's a lot more cooperative by 6 months! Oh well. Here's his monthly shot:

Speaking of shots, we are finally caught up!

Another new development is hair loss. I'm not sure how my hairy little man has now become almost completely bald on top! I miss his hair! I hope it comes back soon but in the meantime, it's something to giggle about. He looks so funny with his pattern baldness.

Josh's car is broken and we are getting tired of being stuck in the house all the time while he takes the car to work. Argh! We have replaced a lot of things and so far nothing is working. Pray for this! We are not in a financial situation that will really make room for a new vehicle. We started living on one salary this month and it is really rather terrifying. We are trusting God with this. I'm trying to fit some freelance editing in where I can. It's not easy but I hope as Eli gets a little older we're going to fall into a good routine where things do get a little bit easier.

I guess that's all I have for now. Here are some random pictures since I made you wait so long.

... and a video of Noah holding Eli. I love how he's talking to him and we can't understand it. :)
