We have been so crazy busy this summer. The poor kids have been subjected to gypsy life. I don't think they have slept in their own beds for more than three nights in a row for the past two months. Hence why I have not been updating the blog.
My awesome brother-in-law took these pics last week. Vivien is so much fun lately, she is starting to crawl and get into a sitting position. She self entertains for like 30 minutes at a time. She is so happy. I just can't believe how blessed we are to have such a perfect baby.

Val Dean just loves his baby sister. They are really starting to play and interact together. Val Dean is also starting to be such a protective big brother. He tells me when she is crying to help her and when she she is sleeping to check on her. The other day his little cousin lightly tapped a toy on her head and he went over pushed her and said not hit her.
It's been about 9 weeks since Val Dean's surgery. The doctor said his neck is not fusing as fast as they would like so needs to wear the neck brace for about four months instead on two. He has progressed to a point now that we can remove the neck brace while he is sleeping. Which is a huge relief because he would take it off at night and tear off all the pads and parts into about 10 pieces. Overall he is doing so well, you would never know he had a surgery (except the neck brace). He just runs around like any other kid, fearless and crazy.
