I know I've been slacking in the blogging department. We're still sick ladies over here. And because of that, I haven't wanted to blog (and I've been tired). I mean, how many times can I say, "we're sick, ugh, blah, it sucks." I am getting better very slowly. It's pretty annoying. And my sweet girls have been sick since mid-December. Serious! Can't wait till summer. I know it'll be over then. Right?
On one of the few days we all felt okay, we went somewhere. I actually can't remember where we went, but I have this super adorable picture of Gwen holding Avie's hand as she sleeps.
Ben had all of Friday off (plus Saturday morning off) and I got to see what it would be like for him to actually have days off. I like it. Lately he has school, work or both every day of the week. There are days where I see him for a couple hours in the afternoon and then don't see him (awake) again until the next evening. Tough, my friends.
This gem was taken a few weeks ago, but it never gets old. She picked those heels out. As Gwen likes to say, "Stylish!"
I don't want to talk too much about being sick, but Gwen did say something funny/sad yesterday. I asked her if she wanted me to get her a couple of Barbies so she could play, and she responded with, "No, I just want to sit around and eat."
Since we'll be getting our own place soon, I've been making plans. Big plans. I'm thinking about homeschooling the girls next school year. I know! Gwen's in a Montessori preschool 3 half days a week right now (when she isn't sick and can go) and I just don't think we can afford to send her next year. But I don't want her to do nothing. Le sigh. We'll see! I will have a newborn to take care of as well.
I am already feeling my braxton hicks. I'm 20 weeks! This seems crazy. I don't remember when they started with Avie. But I did go into preterm labor with her at 32 weeks and had contractions from then on, until delivering her at 40 weeks + 3 days. So that's fun. I can't wait until I am further along so I can try some of Ana's great suggestions for natural induction methods.
Go check out the rest of the quick takes! Especially the late goers like me.
