Venus is in recovery

We're not quite sure how, but poor Venus has a boo boo on her right eye. It was swollen and red so she went to the doctor and was really brave and got eye drops. Now she has to get eye drops two times a day. I am jealous when she gets them because she gets hugs from Mommy & Daddy. Although her eye is less swollen and appears to be healing, Mommy & Daddy are still worried so Venus is going to see an eye care specialist on Thursday morning. She will probably get more eye goo there.

The good news is that Venus has been a really good girl and is not scratching at her eye. She also has not lost her appetite or desire to bark with me at the neighbor dogs. So no pictures today but please keep my sister in your thoughts. Send her hugs and boneless babies.

Baby sisters are loud

We are back after a mini-sabbatical. So much has happened over the past few weeks, so we will try to do a couple of posts this week to get you caught up. The biggest announcement is that we have a baby sister. Her name is Turtle Face. This is an aerial view of her.

Isn't she cute? She is little and very green and has an orange dot on each side of her head. She is only about 3 inches long. We will try to get a better picture. It's hard because she likes to move around her room, which sits near the TV and we can see through. The pebbles move around her feet and we get excited. One day Bean got so tired from watching her that he had to take a nap and be under a blanket:

Sorry again for going so long in between posts. We hope it wasn't as hard for you to wait as it is sometimes for us to hold in our pee when Mommy & Daddy have to stay late at work.
