We're germy but still cute

Well, we made it almost nine months without having to visit the after hours clinic.

The past few days Cole has been getting sick after his bottle. I have been assuming that he was just eating too much since he seemed to feel good otherwise. However, on Tuesday he was not himself at all. He was Pitiful Cole. I don't think he smiled at all that day until 6 p.m. which is highly unusual for him. (Of course I have to mention that the first time he smiled, it was for the nurse at the clinic. Typical little flirt.)

As it turns out, he has had a virus that just has to run its course. He's been happier every day since Tuesday, so I think he's almost back to normal. While it's been sad to see him feeling puny, the naps have been amazing. They have both been taking 3 hour naps in the morning and two hour naps in the afternoon, plus an extra hour in the late afternoon. Because of that, this week has been a great week to recharge for me. I haven't put pressure on myself to organize, clean, or anything like that. I just needed a minute for me. And I took it.

Next we'll I'll try to be productive again. :)

And since I've deprived you of my words and pictures of my precious children all week, I'll share this photo:



I have more from this series, but this is my favorite. I love their faces. I love that their foreheads are touching. And I love, love Ellen's feet. I wonder what they're thinking about here...
