29 weeks: Ruby turns 34 months.

It's been rainy this week, so we have done some indoor activities. And the kids are still getting over being sick. Ruby is mostly better. Apparently she still has a little fluid in her ears from her ear infection. Reid still has a cough and gets snotty. He's getting a bunch more teeth though too, so that doesn't help. And the combination of those two things makes him drool non-stop.  Ruby has been going strong with potty training. She still doesn't tell us when she has to go, which has been a source of frustration for us when she goes to the nursery at church.

She has been getting in these moods and throwing tantrums and losing control really easily. We think it might have to do with low blood sugar, so today I tried giving her more protein snacks and that seemed to help.  We're borrowing this fun thing from some friends. Reid loves it!  And sister wanted to put a bow in his hair. Looks pretty good. :)  Playing together.  We have lots of fun making train tracks.  On Saturday, Reid slept …
