And as for an update on little Nicole..... we did indeed end up at the Dr's office today. No idea what's going on. Her ears are clear. The best guess is that it's more reflux issues. We changed her medication tonight. BUT it's 10:50 and as I typed this she woke up and she's currently crying... again.... so I'm wondering how long it takes for this to kick in. This will be my 3rd time putting her to bed tonight. Oh dear.

It's serious business! Our friend Nate has a great sandbox in his back yard and last week we got to come have some serious sandbox fun and get seriously dirty. It was great!

Well - the sickness continues over here. In the middle of the night (4am) - you know, when I was already up with Nicole - I could hear Megan making little noises in her room. So I went in there and she was burning up. Sure enough, she had a temp of 102.5. Ugh. After some Motrin, this morning she slept in till 9:15 - and although she had a bit of a temp still, she was in a great mood. The day went on and her energy came back (but not her appetite- she's barely eaten in 2 days). Her fever broke and we even played outside a little bit. We had to go out after she told Tom, "Daddy, it's a beautiful day to be outside - but we aren't outside." Once again Mandy said - let's try it again.....
So during naptime we got all "date ready" and spiffed up.
Bottle ready for Nicole -check.
Diaper bag packed - check.
Megan's stuff ready - check.
And then.... once again nap time was over and Megan walked up to me. I picked her up and my date night plans were dashed - she was burning up. sure enough - 102. Ugh! so once again, call Mandy to cancel the plans. Bummer.
But... in steps Natalie. Natalie offered to stay home with sick Megan (who was super super super clingy). Not sick Nicole went to Mandy's house. Divide and conquer! And we still got our date night! It's amazing how much energy it takes to actually get a date night. Totally worth it, but wow.
Thank you to Natalie and Mandy who looked after our sweet pumpkins so that we could go out and invest in US.

I am worried that little Nicole's ears are not clearing up. We are 1/2 way though our new antibiotic and unfortunately she's still waking up every night, multiple times. Ugh.
And just as that is going on... Megan woke up from her nap today with a fever. Oh dear - here we go again. I'm actually wondering if she has hand, foot mouth that her baby sister may have shared with her..... I guess we'll know tomorrow.
On the other hand - here are some photos from happier and healthier times this week (hopefully Megan didn't infect any of her friends)... We met up with some friends at the park one evening and of course parks + friends = fun (x5)
Swinging with Charlie...
And when you get tired of swinging, you can help push!

It's been a wonderful day full of family and friends. This morning, Megan got to start her day off right with a little "romp" with her BFF Mary Grace.
Then of course we had to have our traditional family gathering. Megan always loves having her cousins over.
And this gathering just isn't complete without a HUGE egg hunt - with 124 eggs (31 each). Somehow we just keep gaining more and more eggs each year. I just love this shot of Megan running to get an egg. She was so excited and had so much fun.
It was a wonderful day and a beautiful start to spring break. I'm sure this week will hold lots of fun outings (mommy's sanity will require it!).
