 It has been a week to remember around here (though I would love to forget it).  

Colton started off the week with a dry cough and very larthargic and just not feeling well.  We headed to the doctor on monday afternoon and sure enough he has walking pneumonia.  Poor little fella!  He was pitiful.  She put him on a z-pack and said he could go to school as long as he didn't have a fever.  I kept him home on Tuesday but by that afternoon the medicine was working so off he went to school on Wednesday!

Thursday morning Sydney got sick shortly after hanging her morning bottle.  She's never don't that before and it was preceded by a cough.  I think she gagged from the cough.  She got sick again in her bed during her morning nap.  I got her cleaned up and ready to go get Colton at school.  We got almost there before she threw up in the car!  Ugh, my least favorite thing in the world.  I was pretty sure she was gagging on her cough and when we got home she had a fever of 102.  I took her to the doctor on Friday morning and she has an ear infection.  My poor baby!  She has slept most of the weekend and just tonight started feeling a little back to herself.  

Friday night Matt and I started to get ready for bed around 10:30 when Matt heard Ryan screaming from upstairs.  I said "oh, that's never good".  Ryan got sick in his bed then at the top of the stairs.  Blah!!!  Matt began to tackle the landing and I got Ryan in the shower and stripped his bed.  He got sick some more so we made a palet for him on our floor to sleep!  Matt mentioned that he felt a little off so we knew what was coming.  About an hour later he was in the bathroom and sick as a dog.  

It was a pretty eventful night and no one got any sleep except Colton and Sydney.  I think I saw every single hour on the clock.  Ryan bounced back quickly and was feeling better by morning wanting to eat breakfast and play.  Matt on the other hand was feeling crummy and lethargic all day.  

I am praying all this sickness away and ready for us all to get better.  I busted out the lysol and clorax and cleaned bathrooms, laundry and floors.  Stomach bug - BE GONE, you are no longer welcome here!

Ten Months

 Sydney - You are TEN months old!!!

You weigh 18 pounds.
You wear size 3 diaper.
You wear 12 month clothes.

You are an AMAZING eater and you love basically everything we feed you.  You love to feed yourself.  At every meal you love to eat food off my plate and love me to feed her.  You recently had avocado and you loved it.  You love green beans, bananas, peas and carrots and yogurt.  

You are am awesome sleeper.  You go to be around 7pm and get up around 7:30/8:00.  You take your morning nap half the time in your bed and the other half in the car on the go.  You take a good long nap in the afternoon from 2:00-5:00.  

You started crawling at 10 months.  You are all over the place.  I turn my back for a second and you have wondered into the laundry room.  

You are so sweet and pretty easy, unless you are hungry and then you demand to have food, ha.  You had your first ear infection this month.  Thankfully the meds kicked in quickly and you got better after seeing the doctor.  

You are such a joy and have the best personality.  You love when your brothers talk and play with you.  They are crazy about you and hardly leave you alone.  

You have two teeth on the bottom and two top teeth, the ones next to the two front middle teeth.

You are mostly easy to take places.  Even when you are tired you hang in there and stay entertained.  You are pretty easy going and everyone always says how pretty and adorable you are.  I am just so crazy about you!

(Those eyelashes and those lips!!!)

You are such a joy and delight.  You have completed our family and we just couldn't love you more.  You smile so big when your daddy comes in the room.  I hope you will be a daddy's girl.  You are just the sweetest thing and we love you so much!
