Okay, I finally figured out why it was so "quiet" around here!
We'll join the sick roll call...
Not only does Gabriel have a slight cough and runny nose, then Iain's coughing, sneezing, and gunky, and now DH and I feel cruddy.
I've been running errands all day, though I really feel more like sleeping. Maybe we'll make it an early night tonight. Hoping everyone is feeling better soon!
Had to go pick up our car from the shop today. It didn't start on Sunday and DH couldn't get the battery out to replace it (corroded something-or-others), so we had it towed to the shop. Come to find out the battery's leaking acid, destroyed two cables, and altogether with a needed oil change, it cost over $400!!
: Thankfully I'd had some extra in savings, but oh my! I'm just kicking myself because I've been meaning to have DH take it in for maintenance, that probably would've caught this earlier.
I love all of the Christmas ideas! For Gabriel (2.5), we're probably going to give him some more Brio sets/trains. At "school" on Monday, his teachers asked what the kids wanted for Christmas, and his answer was "train tracks." We got his Brio set back out recently and he'll spend hours playing with it! So, we might get down another set that we already have, and/or buy him more trains. Not sure yet. I also want to get him the doll and accessories set from Tykie Diapers (http://tykie.cutsie.net/
is the link that works for me). Maybe that'll be from Iain.
Hmm, that's a sweet idea, I think! Wonder what Gabriel would want to get for Iain. This is gonna be so exciting, having them pick things for each other! Ya know, having two is pretty cool. (...I say while Gabriel is with my parents and Iain is sleeping on my lap! :LOL)
It has actually gotten COLD here!
: It's great, I love the cold! Okay, so some of you wouldn't call it cold, exactly.
Last night, though, it was 37° when I checked. Brr! And the air is so crisp and cool. Just wonderful. It's supposed to get a bit warmer again, which stinks. It's fun to pull out the boys' wintery clothes and bundle them up.
Though this is the first I've had a newborn/infant in the winter, so it's a bit different and more challenging than bundling just Gabriel. Anyway, just watching my little guy snooze in a beautiful red sweater.
Leigh, I have no idea if they're too young for Pedialyte.
I gave it to Gabriel when he was a baby - actually, I guess we first mixed some yucky meds with it, so he did get it pretty young. I know you've gotta be really worried about Anna's weight. I hope you get some answers and all feel better soon!
Well, Gabriel is home now... just about time for bed. Have a good night, mamas!
