Everything and Anything

I can't believe how sick my kids have been getting. Maybe we are catching up for all the healthy times we've had. To show you the timeline, Peyton got sick the first week of November with a double ear infection. I also got sick. 3 weeks later we all came down with Swine Flu. Ashton got a secondary infection and got croup the same week of the flu. Then we started getting better. Then both kids got a stomach bug with tummy aches and other tmi issues. Then Peyton got a secondary infection with croup which is now appearing to be gone. However, Ashton got a secondary infection a week after Peyton's croup. He at this moment has strep throat and nose. I am still fighting off something. I hope I can keep it away. Being a mom, pregnant, and sick is just awful.

Pregnancy is going fine. I am eating again so that is nice, but I still have food aversions and I don't like to eat anything sweet. I want the sour stuff and yes that includes pickles. I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow and in one more week we will hopefully be finding out what we are having. Although I have a really good guess to what we are having, but I could always be wrong.

Christmas was a lot of fun, but very busy. Here are some of the pictures we took.

Opening Presents

Peyton got a cabbage patch doll and I like the look on her face in this picture. It was like Ashton was going to take it and she wasn't letting it go.

If your wondering how the transition with the cats is going, all I can say is it's okay and not okay. It's going okay with Sophie and not okay with Mimi. Here is a video of Bella and Sophie. For the most part they are fine. Sophie lets Bella into her personal space. Mimi on the other hand, Bella can just look at her and she will start hissing. She isn't social unless all the kids and dog are not around. Sophie will hang out most of the day with us and is a big talker. Sophie is exactly what I wanted. I am hoping Mimi will come around. Here is a video of Bella and Sophie.

This is what Christmas morning looks like after 15 people open presents.

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas and hope the best for everyone in 2010
