38 weeks: A night in the hospital, bronchitis, and Ruby turns THREE!

This week was a doozy. The kids just weren't getting any better. I'm pretty sure I barely left the house for at least a week straight, and then not much for the following week except to go to the doctor/hospital/pharmacy. I'm not sure why our kids get so sick. I got some vitamin D drops for them, and since I started those, they have gotten so much better!

I'm not putting them in the nursery for a month after this so they get a chance to recover. This time of year is seriously no fun. In spite of all of that, we've still had some nice times this week. Here are some photos. Trying to get a selfie of me and the kids. It's a little fuzzy, but it captured a sweet kiss from Reid. Ruby has been loving helping me do the dishes. Doing Mommy's hair. On Friday Andy took Ruby out on…
