Still Here!

I have birthday updates a plenty, but no time right now to post a bunch of photos. David came home from school sick today after falling asleep during his class. He has "a headache" and a fever. How does a four year old know what a headache is?! Henry is . . Henry. Loud, wild, and into everything. Jack is teething and full of snot with a probably infected ear. He had his 12 month checkup yesterday. He's 23 pounds, 13 ounces and 30 inches long. We postponed his vaccinations because he's not feeling well. He's getting his eye teeth and it's making him miserable. Or, maybe he's unhappy because he has copious snot coming out of his nose on a constant basis. You pick. And, to top it off, Chris isn't feeling well. Funny how that only seems to happen during the work week. He's been feeling ill for two weeks now, but only on work nights. Odd. I can deal with three sick children better than I can deal with one ill husband.

Oh, and my babysitter decided today at noon that she couldn't come to watch the boys because she "couldn't get sick". Her mom had surgery last week and she is helping to care for her, so I understand her concern about getting sick. However, she was supposed to be at my house at noon to watch my children. Thankfully I have a fairly flexible job and a very understanding boss, so I left work for the afternoon and raced home to pick Henry up from school on time. We spent the afternoon reading books, resting, watching a movie, administering Tylenol and Benadryl, and wiping boogers.

Everyone is in bed now, and I'm going to catch up on some work I should have done this afternoon. I promise birthday photos are coming soon!

When it rains it pours...doesn't it! My kids were sick for almost the entire month of January. We are still dealing with gross colds and coughs. They are finally well enough to go to school! I told Brent it's a good thing I didn't have a job or I would have lost it this month. I would have had to take almost everyday this month off! Crazy...hope everyone gets better soon and fast!! Sorry about the sitter that sucks!

Sorry everyone is feeling bad...NO SICK should be a law! You should have called me today to help you!
Lily June is 1/2 inch taller and 4 pounds heavier than Jack! That is so funny! Please call me if you need me!
