Sorry ya’ll. I’ve been sick. Lying on the couch, hacking up a lung, napping for hours while my sainted (and also sick) hubby watches the kids, feeling miserable and listless, producing copious amounts of snot, not able to do much of anything sick. I’ll throw you a few cute photos of the small ones and you’ll forgive me, right?

I took this photo before I gave up hopes of a decent Christmas card photo. In retrospect, I should have used this one. It makes me laugh. (I told Sabrina to put her arm around Tessa…it ended up with a bear hug…the next photo on the camera is Tessa running away from another hug attempt.)


This is mostly for me…I’ve been wanting to capture how sweet Tessa is with her froggie at bed time. She sucks her fingers, brings its arm up across her nose, and snuggles it close. Sabrina has stuffed animals she sleeps with and likes but never had a true comfort object like this frog with Tessa. For her it is a more of a routine – for Tessa, froggie is necessary. Tessa got sick in bed one night and I had to throw froggie in the washing machine. She was quite distressed to go to bed without him.


This looks says “Momma, you got your shot now leave us.”


Please to ignore the blood stains on the sheet…Sabrina has nose issues. All of our crib sheets look like that.

    That shot of them is TOO CUTE!!

    My boys have nosebleeds too. It’s really odd how sometimes it washes out completely and sometimes it stains. I’ve never been able to figure that out.

    Gorgeous pics! Phoebe has nosebleed issues too, but I’ve found that if I keep a humidifier running in her room at night it really helps. It seems to be the dryness from the central air that makes it act up.

    Cute pictures! I love the first one! Sabrina’s face cracks me up!!!

    Gabbie has nose bleeds too. We have even been to a specialist and were given steroid drops to use when it is bad. They rock!!!! We have sheet issues too. Lately though if she gets one we soak the sheets in cold water for a day or so and the blood comes right out. Oddly enough I have been getting nose bleeds lately too. I think we are going to get a humidifier thing put on our furnace. I hope it helps because we need it!

    Sweet pictures! I hope you are feeling better soon! It is so hard to be sick and the mommy. I had no idea before I become a mom! Yay for a wonderful hubby!

    Trust me. I would go buy a couple more of those froggies now. Timothy was like that with a lamb..so I bought 6 more. If we couldnt find it, if it got lost…we had problems! So I had backups. Emily has gone through 3 dollies. The same face..just redone bods and bonnets because she wore holes and rips in her. 🙂

    love the bear hug pic! Sisterly love at its best. glad to see that Alexis is not the only one with nose bleed issues. It still freaks me out to find her covered in blood while she sleeps. I have learned that peroxide works best for us on the sheet stains

    Cute pic! yes…I think that should have been a Christmas card photo! 🙂 When Josh was little (about 18 months) he had a bear and I took off for Pittsburgh and left the bear at home…lets just say we did not sleep at all that night and my husband (who stayed at home to work) actually spent the money to UPS the bear to us!!! It was the best money we ever spent!

    Here I was worried I would have much to catch up on!! Hope you are feeling better soon.

    I love the pics of Tessa. Krista and Reese both have blankets that they sleep with and I think it is the sweetest thing ever!!
