Roseolla

Both girls have had fevers this week and now Olivia has spots all over. I am sure Abby will follow with the spots very soon. They are so so miserable, just wanting to lay on us most of the day. Poor babies. So that is what is going on right now with us. Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I am just trying to fit two feverish girls on my lap to snuggle.

Oh, and remember when I said that the low stages now are worse than infancy? Umm, yeah, what was I thinking? There is nothing like a reminder of what infancy was all about to make me realize how great I have it now. They are up at night. And we have even brought one of them to bed with us but they squirm around and fuss and cry until their next dose of Motrin goes through. It is about an hour of it before they finally settle down and go to sleep. I ended up sleeping in the recliner with Olivia last night. Can you say - right back to infancy!?! I will be glad when this little bug is over and done with.

And once again, it is the anniversary of our first date. Remember last year? It you want the sweet sappiness of our courtship, then last years' post will fit the bill. He again brought me flowers and a kiss to remind me of our first time looking into each others eyes. ::sigh:: Thanks, babe.

I will leave you a cute story

Zachary was crawling around and playing with the girls on the floor and he scraped his knee. Tears and crying were present. Abby immediately went over and started patting him and murmuring to him. Then she wiped at his eyes and patted very gently with her two hands on the sides of his face. Abby is pretty rough with her love so this was so sweet to watch. Olivia got in on it and they both crawled in his lap for hugs. Needless to say, the tears turned to giggles.

Now if we could just get the girls to act that way toward each other. Oh my! The fights!

Oh no! I hope the fevers have broken. My girls were miserable with the fevers, but when they stopped and the rash appeared, they were fine. Hope it is over soon. Hang in there!
