There have been posts I've wanted to write over the holidays, but with going away and then coming down with the flu, I just haven't been able to blog like I wanted. A quick update on everyone one here first. The kids are doing so much better. They still have coughs and congestion (some more than others) but are all active and playful. Our 5 yr old has coughing fits (mostly at night) that almost bring about vomiting each time. He gags so much and cries because he hates to cough. Our baby girl has a nasty cough as well, but other than that they are all doing quite well. Hubby has had to go into work this week very early to try and get a project completed. No vacation for him this week! He is still trying to recover as well, so he is quite exhausted by the time he gets home. I have only a cough to contend with, so I think we are all on the mend finally! Now comes the task of catching up from holidays/sickness. I still haven't unpacked since returning home!!! I see mounds of laundry in my future :)
Some updates on baby girl. Over the holidays she FINALLY got a tooth!! Actually 2 teeth. Eight and a half months is very late for teeth budding with our children, but I'm glad she finally is getting them. She has also started clapping which is so cute. Her smile has returned once again which makes me a happy mama!
Our oldest is also going to have a birthday on Sunday. Hard to believe we are entering the double digits with her!! She is turning into quite the young lady.
Other than that, it was quite the quiet household here last night as the new year rang in. It will be exciting to see what God has in store for us this year.
