This has been the longest week of my life...two sick kids. Some new things for me this week: saline drops and suctioning snot out of two little noses, baby Vicks rub downs, and a rectal thermometer. It's been a real treat as you can imagine. Carter started it last Saturday, and Clara joined in the fun on Wednesday. I always said I would never be a freakish parent who takes their kids to the doctor for a cold...but I did. Can you say freak?? As of today, Carter is doing much better, he is still a little congested, but has a bad cough, which could last 2 weeks or so. Clara is miserable, major congestion, little fever and bad cough. Carter is now 13 pounds, and Clara is 10 pounds or so.
I didn't post on Valentine's Day, but wanted to share a couple of pictures. We got these cute shirts from Old Navy, and I wanted to take some pictures to send out as valentines. We also got a scarf for Abby...I wanted to get pictures of the three of them together. I started taking pictures of just the kids, and as I'm doing that I hear Abby running, bounding really up the stairs. She runs in the bedroom where we are and jumps up on the bed and starts rolling around like a mad dog! She was really upset (I guess) that she was not the center of the photoshoot. It was hilarious! She would not lay down and let me put the kids by her, so this is what I got...what a dog!
