What We've Been Up To

Shortly after Mitch's birthday party, we all came down with the sickness. It started with a runny nose and scratchy throat, and has now developed into a terrible cough. Emma has it the worst, and this last week has been hard to say the least. I don't know if there is anything worse than watching your child suffer and not being able to do much about it. The doctor said it's just a virus that will have to work its way out of her system. Luckily, Charlotte hasn't caught it yet, and we are crossing our fingers it stays that way. 

Emma is getting better, and we have been giving her a homeopathic cough syrup that has really helped (thank goodness!). Hopefully within the next few days her cough will go away completely and we will have our happy little lady back. 

Charlotte is still doing great, and growing too fast! I know I say that every post, but it's because between each post she has done something different and new! She always has smiles for us and shows us that cute dimple each time. She still refuses her binkie, but will fall asleep on her own really easily. Recently she's been trying to roll over, and she's finally mastered it, kind of. 

She will roll over on her tummy, and just struggle to get her arm out from under her until she gets so tired she either passes out or grunts in anger. She is totally a tummy sleeper though, and a finger sucker. 

Must be comfy, because she laid like this for 20 mins before passing out

I'm actually jealous, so comfy!


Before Emma got really sick, we took a few random pictures of our day to day adventures. Emma found a pair of my sunglasses (she calls them "eyes") and put them on. She rocked them! Total stunna-shades :)

Emma also loves noodles ("doodoos") so we set up her table in the living room so she could eat them at her table. I think she is getting too big for her highchair and wants to be a big girl now. 

The kitties have been drawn more to Charlotte, mostly because they know that she can't chase after them, and they can sit next to her in peace. Also, Sugar is stubborn and doesn't like to share. We sure do love our kitties, and are so lucky they haven't had any problems with the babies! They are so patient with Emma and rarely lose it with her. I think Ryno loves babies, we always discover him lying as close to Charlotte as he can (He was the same way with Emma, too).

I've also been watching Anne's kiddos while she's in training for her new job, last week Kami, Kadan, and Emma all cuddled up on Emma's couch to watch a movie. Too cute! Emma absolutely loves them, and has started to call Kami "kiki" and is still trying to say Kadan. 

It's been a crazy 2 weeks in our house, and I'm excited for this stupid cold virus to leave and for us all to be healthy again! 

Love you all, and hope you stay healthy! Is Spring here yet?!
