Sick again :(

Poor Matthew can't seem to stay away from getting sick. He has a cold again after having the last one a month then it was gone a week when some of the daycare kids came with colds and he got it again. I am so glad they are getting Synergist because a cold could be so much worse if they weren't. Next year they won't qualify for it so I need to figure out a way to keep him from getting sick.

The past two nights have not gone so great between Matthew waking himself and everyone else up with his coughing, Cameron coming down with the cough and Aubrey refusing to go to sleep we have had a couple sleepless nights. All of the babies have always been great about going to bed awake and putting themselves to sleep but the past 3 nights Aubrey will suck her paci a few minutes then spit it out and cry. We go through this cycle for about a half hour before she decides to sleep. In between her crying fits we try burping her, rubbing her belly,etc but she just wants to stay awake. Any suggestions???

My day away from the babies was tough, I missed them before I even dropped them off at their play dates. It makes me literally sick to my stomach when they aren't with me. I know a lot of people want to take them and Ben says I am mean for not letting them but I get a stomach ache just thinking about them being gone. After waiting so long for them I have every right to be greedy and everyone is just going to have to understand that.

This week is pretty quiet for us we have a home health visit on Thursday and Early Supports on Friday. I think they will be glad to see that the babies are starting to hold toys and Brady has decided that maybe he will eat them. LOL! Matthew likes his Jumperoo for short periods of time and the others are going to try it out today. Hopefully it will help his flat spot become a little more round.


  1. Awww, sorry it's been sleepless at your house lately. Thank goodness, it will pass. I think most all mothers are a bit selfish with their babies for a while...I know I was. A few more of those sleepless nights might make playdates easier for you! LOL

  2. Hang in there with the sicknesses--unfortunately, there isn't much you can do to keep them from getting sick, especially when you have so many people around thema all the time. It gets easier when they get older--I promise!

    I know it is hard to be away from them, but it really does make you a better mommy when they are away, and it is good for them to be able to adapt to other people and get some special time when they aren't all together.... and before you know it, they will be tantrum-ridden toddlers and you will be THRILLED to have time away. You are so fortunate to be able to work and have them with you, too- that stomachache feeling is what lots of moms feel when they bring their kids to you, so you can definitely empathize now!

    Love and hugs-- let me know if you need anything.

  3. It is so sad when they are sick - I swear, Micah has been sick SOOO many times over the past 6 months that I stopped counting. I hear it will make them healthier later.

    It sounds like the babies are growing so well! Amazing how "old" they are getting. - Tkeys


We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
