Monkey see, monkey do

Not that I need to say much about these silly ones but I could type endlessly these days about them. They make me giggle until I start to question what I ever did to deserve such blessings. I am grateful. Random thoughts:*The rain seems to have calmed our allergies and that is a wonderful thing!

Hungry Hippos

I’ve been amazed lately at the appetite that the kids have had and after weighing and measuring them both recently it’s easy to see why they are eating so much. Toby has grown an unbelievable 1 1/2 inches since March and gained almost 3 pounds since then as well. That’s a lot when you’re a

Allergist Appt. #1

We saw the allergist today. Went over the basics. Nothing earthshattering or that we didn’t already know or haven’t already talked to a doctor about. Basically a preliminary appointment to see where things are and look him over. We’re keeping him on all meds he’s currently on for one full week, then taking him off

Well, after a not so fun visit to the urgent care tonight, we have decided to postpone allergy testing for another month. Toby played outside for a few hours this afternoon and his eyes went crazy again. He could not stop rubbing them and actually asked for eye drops and ice packs. He hates eye

Between blowing noses and getting things done, here is a quick update on what’s happening around here: The kids are both being treated for strep.

New PJ's

Just wanted to share this fun new picture of the kids in their new pajamas. I was surprised and delighted that they were both actually looking at the camera AND smiling AT THE SAME TIME. That doesn’t happen often these days. Notice Lilly’s purse on her arm. Funny how kids pick up on those things

Warning: This is going to be long and a total “mommy brag,” more for my own memory than for entertainment. If you think it will annoy you or make you feel inclined to burst my bubble, please stop reading now. If not, take it for what it is and enjoy. Friday evening Toby was invited

Stinky days...

This is a recent chalk drawing Toby made of….ME! Notice the devilishly happy grin! Not sure what happened to my arms. Don’t ask. We are so longing for the days of being able to do these drawings outside on the sidewalk but for now we are very thankful that I painted a hallway wall with
