Mary Elizabeth - 3 months
Mommy and ME enjoying a little snuggle time
Benjamin jumping up and down at his swim lesson...notice he is NOT looking at his teacher
Benjamin searching for chocolate inside the eggs - we had a little egg hunt at the park with our neighbors earlier this week to get Ben ready for the big egg hunt today

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. We have been busy here in Nola, and Mary Elizabeth is still having severe reflux (and problems associated with it). We saw the doctor last week, and he gave me some hope that things will get better. ME gained 2 ounces, which is a very big deal for us (2 ounces in one month)! We see the GI specialist at Children's next week, and I am putting alot of hope and faith in that appointment. Please say a prayer for us that this doctor can help ME.
Benjamin started swim lessons and is doing terrific (when he decides to pay attention to his teachers). He can swim underwater froom one teacher to another now (about 5 or 6 feet)! Our play groups are in full swing - we went to the splash pad at the zoo this is enormous and it overwhelmed all of our kids! We are going to pick strawberries next week, and I can't wait! See our day at Miss Heather's last year here -
Today we are going to an Easter egg hunt for the community of Lakeview...I am very excited (Ben is a little excited too). I will post more when I get a chance...

Grand Isle

at playground in Grand Isle Seth has been asking us to visit him at work for some time now that ME has arrived. I have been barely making here in Nola, so the thought of packing up two babies and all their stuff to head to Grand Isle (not to mention 2 hours in the car with ME)was not so appealing. We finally made the trip this past weekend and had a great time! Ben LOVES the beach...ME did ok once we got there, and it was SOOO nice to have someone to hang out with at night after I put the kids to bed. Thanks Seth for being such a great host - We had a blast!
