Sick, sick, sick :(

Sickness has overtaken our house.  Ugh.  Brianah was sick Saturday night and most of the day Sunday.  That meant a fun day of playing at Oma and Opa's house for Carter, but when he got home that night he had a fever of 103.  Tylenol/Ibuprofen overnight seemed to help and then he got worse Monday morning.  Trip to the doctor's office confirmed what we feared...a virus.  Not that that is a bad thing, but it's frustrating to know it just needs to run it's course.  He is still spiking fevers, sleepy, and fussy.  But the silver lining is that today, so far, we've not had such a problem getting him to drink fluids.

Lots of cuddling time on the couch, crawling in bed with mom in the morning, and more juice than usual are all on the agenda for probably at least another day.  Here's hoping and praying he starts to feel better soon!  And that Henry stays well! :)

Happy Velentine's Day!

Today is Valentine's Day.  That hasn't meant much in our house up to this point.  James and I have never been super interested in celebrating this holiday and the boys are too young to really seem interested.  I am, however, starting to have dreams about fun projects to do with the boys this time next year.  Dreams of heart shaped pancakes (or french toast), pink bread, finger painting, and making presents for daddy.  It's times like these that I have to consciously enjoy their little baby stage of life as I know next year I'll be wishing for it again :).

Here are some pictures of the boys...
