Sick, sick, sick
We all caught a nasty cold, and it has been no good. We've still been able to find time to have a little fun though in spite of it.
I was able to get away on a women's retreat with our church over the weekend. That was much needed and lovely. Andy and the kids did great here at home.
Ruby is not napping as much anymore, now that she's 4. That helps her go to sleep at night better, but some days she still needs a nap.
Reid finally has all of his teeth in, and he is as cute and funny as ever. Today he had a sad face and said, "I can't fly." I laughed so hard. He's also really attached to his paci. Tonight he came up to me and said, "Where is it, paci? Find it. Help me."
Me and my two cuties. I love them, and we all love being outside.
He's so cute in his cloth diapers. And his pink paci. Hahaha. They didn't have any more blue ones at the store. :) He has been chewing holes in his paci's really fast, so we're going to take them away soon. He will be sad, but it's necessary.
This was the theme of my retreat I went on. I had such a good time learning more about taking a Sabbath, resting, self-care, etc. I sure missed my husband and babies, though.
Back at home! These guys love corn on the cob.
I got Ruby these cute workout clothes while I was gone. She loves them.
We went on a lovely family walk and took time to pick flowers...
...and just sit. Just what we needed.
Sometimes Ruby sits on the front step and does this, so Reid copies her. It's hilarious.
Reid and I had the morning together on Tuesday. Ruby spent the morning with Aunt Becca, and we haven't had Penelope all week because we've been so sick. So we played soccer, read lots of stories, and had a great time.
Ruby didn't want me to sing to her at nap time, so I counted her to sleep. I got to 472. Haha!
Our cute little garden. We've been putting beer in little cups to kill all of the slugs, and it works great!
We were home sick, so we made the cookies from our Sesame Street Treasury books. It was fun.
Ruby was saying, "Get on, steeb."
Bike riding fun! They both like the tricycle better.
Del and Patty came and watched our kids on Wednesday night, so we we went on a date night. This sushi place was fun! We got appetizers there.
And then ramen across the street. It was delicious!
Reid loves to snuggle, especially when he's upset.
Andy had to work at home on Thursday because he didn't feel well. So the kids and I went on a nice walk to the park.
We found Flower Land (as Ruby said). They loved playing in the daisies!
They were making chocolate cake at the park. Then it started raining, so we booked it home! Thankfully we have a rain cover on the stroller.
He's so funny...
Notice the clothes hanger around his knees.
And then Reid was super sick in the night on Thursday night. He kept waking up panicked and having a hard time breathing, with a nasty cough. I took him into the ER at about 1:30. While we were there, he was much better.
When we finally saw a doctor, they said he had croup. So they gave him some steroids and we got home at about 4:30. We both headed straight to bed and slept until 9. Thankfully Andy was able to work at home in the morning and be with Ruby. He hasn't gotten the croup since then. It was scary!
Home at last. Sweet sister.
