Halfway through gymnastics Lily started coughing a bunch and kept it up the rest of the day and so far today, and now Isabel has a cough too. I am hoping that it is allergies or something and that they aren't getting sick now that I am finally getting better! I swear we have had maybe 7-10 days TOTAL this past month where we are all healthy at the same time. It has been OUT OF CONTROL, and I have been seriously praying and fasting for a healthy family!
Isabel is getting SO big SO fast. It is hard to believe that she is only 2 month away from her first birthday! She is pulling up on everything and so proud of herself that she can stand up by herself. She was SUCH a more mellow baby than Lily was, but I think that she will be a more michievous toddler!
I'll be honest, the past month has been EXHAUSTING. I have definetly been slacking on all of my responsibilities and anything social or fun. Even taking a shower a couple times a week has been an accomplishment. Lily has watched WAY too many cartoons, while mommy "rests", and there have been VERY few days where the dishes weren't piled high in the sink, and the laundry in the bedroom. I feel like I need a couple of days to just sleep round the clock in order to recover from trying to recover.
Luckily I have a wonderful husband and great kids who have been with me every step of the way, and who haven't even complained once about my severe exhaustion this month (they can probably sense that mommy is hanging on by a thread!). Oh, and we were also supposed to get family pictures done last weekend, but do to sickness they were cancelled, so no Christmas cards for us. Matt and I have never had family pics done in all our marriage, so we are going to have to reschedule something...sometime...
Anyway, if you read this all GOOD JOB! I would give you a gold star if I had one! I have a couple of videos that I wanted to post, but the little film strip icon is no longer on my toolbar and I don't have the energy to figure it out. Mayber next time, or maybe a reader will be helpful and clue me in! :)
