I am grateful to say that not much is going on right now. We've had an eventful couple of weeks, and we're ready for a couple days of down time. After taking Ashlyn's binky, Nick slipped on the ice and thought he'd maybe broken his hand. It took getting X-rays to make sure it wasn't. Then, this past weekend Ashlyn, Emma, and finally Nick all came down with a nasty stomach bug that kept them throwing up all night. It's rather ironic. Just last week I told Emma's preschool teacher that she had only thrown up once and that was on a car trip and that Ashlyn never had. We certainly have made up for that now. Poor kids. But, we're on the mend, and there's nothing that will make you appreciate healthy kids like spending nights up with them while they're feeling crummy.
We've had a pretty good day today. The kids just wanted to stay home and play together in Emma's tent and a fort we made. For some reason we needed to have a tent and a fort right next to each other, but they've had fun. I love watching them play together. One of my favorite Ashlyn phrases this week has been "sit by you?" She loves it when we sit by her or especially when she can sit next to Emma. They love each other so much. They are such intense little people, and when they decide to show how much they like each other, they hug, play, and laugh together. I love those moments.
Right now, Emma is in her room pretending with her Disney princesses (best purchases ever), and Ashlyn is singing "Twinkle, twinkle little star" to her baby because she said she's crying. Sometimes they do drive me crazy, and then they turn right around and do the cutest things. I absolutely love them. They are good at reminding me what's truly important.
