to Jen and Bendmom!
Talk about chatty... we are already on page 7!
Okay note to self... DO NOT LISTEN TO DAVID on cough medicine advise. :doh :doh So last night he decided I really should take this cough medicine with an expectorant in it. :doh :doh Well I coughed for almost 45 minutes straight at about 2am. NOT good at all. Got to the point that I was gagging and choking I was coughing so bad. Cough medicine is REEEEEALLY nasty the second time around too.
So I didn't get hardly ANY sleep last night and he had drill this weekend so he was gone at 6am. Jack of course was up bright and early at 7am and so was Aidan. I'm sooo tired. I hate being sick! I'm praying for a nap today... but not holding my breathe.
And I'm tired of having sick children too. It's really tough to be have three kids sick to take care and be sick yourself let me tell you. Thankfully Tori is pretty much recovered. I swear the entire month of February is a blur of coughs, snotty noses and gooey eyes. Just when everyone is better and almost fully healthy... someone gets sick again. I swear we are just passing it around or something. Well it hasn't help that after the Jan and Feb FSG meeting, we've gotten sick again. Just when we are recovered!! And both Tori and Jack had pink eye from it this last time too.
I'm amazed that I haven't gotten it. Aidan has only gotten the gunkiness but not actual "pink eye". Let me tell you, they do NOT like to wake up with their eyes crusted shut or let you clean it off easily. Even though I've been washing my hands like crazy (they are nice and red too!) I still find myself rubbing my eyes in that weird selfconsious way because their eyes are all funky. Poor Jack everytime I clean up his eyes he gets mad and then he'll cry which just makes more and more goop come out. Totally
My little girl turned FOUR on Monday.
Being sick made for kind of a bleak birthday for Tori last weekend.
We weren't able to have a 'kids' party for her because I didn't want to expose other people children to end of the sick cruds. We had a small party on Sunday (my mom came to Austin for part of the weekend) and Tori got to open all her presents and have cake. I had to make a DARK PINK cake for her because "that's my favorite color".
Took a lot of red food coloring to get it dark enough. We went to Red Lobster for lunch, her choice because she's on a shrimp kick right now and she wanted shrimps with "tails".
And this weekend is Jack's birthday. He's TWO tomorrow.
We took him to get his first "official" haircut earlier this week. Here are some of the pictures.
He looks like such a little boy now. His cheeks look so much chubbier now. :LOL I can't get over how different he looks.
My little man...
Jen- we had that chair! I got it for David years ago. I sat in that chair a lot at the end of my pregnancy with Tori and did a ton of nursing in that chair.
My mom has it now. I highly recommend getting the matching footstool.
That shirt is from www.granolathreads.com
. I love Keri's stuff and she is a real sweetheart too.
I want to get a t-shirt for Aidan "Blissed Out on Mama Milk". I had a NB onesie for him with that, also a "100% Adorable" & a "Breastmilk Only Please". Tori has a "Big Sister" and Jack has a "Big Brother" shirt. She's got lots of different color t-shirts, not just white.
Okay I need to try to get a round of naps going. I'll be back later.
