Hello February

Goodbye January. I think my kids are trying to see who can hit our deductible first.

Last week:

Kira - woke up at 3:30 am on Tuesday sounding like she was gasping for breath. Her lips were pink. She was sucking her thumb, but her breathing sounded horrible. Diagnosis: croup and another ear infection.

Jackson - On Friday morning, he started running a fever. By 3:00 that afternoon, his fever was at 105.1. We headed to the children's hospital ER to pick up our pneumonia diagnosis.

I think the funky virus I had a few days before Kira got sick manifested itself in a variety of ways. Derek's had a cough, too. We all seem to be on the mend, thankfully.

A semi-related kind of gross funny: I keep having to apologize to Derek for accidentally getting snot on him when I kiss him. He said, "That's ok. I've just started thinking of you as my little snail of love."


  1. Ugh!! Hope you're all feeling better very soon!

  2. hope everyone is feeling better. we have had a sick Jan. too.

  3. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase Love Bugs! :)

  4. I think Jackson gets the unique commentary gene from his daddy :)...
