My sister just yelled at me because of my slacking blog(s) so I thought I'd write a quick update. It's depressing... 2 weeks ago Dodger got sick- fever of 102+, throwing up, etc., was sick for a week, almost was over it and THEN Taya got sick- fever, croup, etc. It's been 5 days now, she's still not any better, and guess what... Dodger's getting it AGAIN! Are you kidding me!? Needless to say we're heading to the doctor tomorrow. The one good thing about this whole situation... I haven't gotten it yet! Knock on wood. I ALWAYS get whatever the kids get! I'm starting to think all these supplements I'm on are paying off! And also, I guess there are a few more positives to the whole sickness business- we've decided Taya has the CUTEST raspy voice ever, I wish it would stay :) . She's also been sooo cute with Dodger since she's been sick, I wish that would stay too! It's been nice for a change!

Cam figured out something the other day that we also LOVE :) ... Dodger can sing the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It's absolutely adorable. I never noticed it until Cam mentioned it, but I usually sing that to him every night and he always sings during the day. A few days ago Cam said, "Is he singing Twinkle Twinkle?" Sure enough, he totally was! Now that we've started noticing he'll do it all the time and does it when you ask him to. So cute. It just comes out as "la la la la la la la" or "yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah", but still, pretty cute for a 17 month old. Speaking of which, do they let kids into the nursery if they're not walking yet? I'm getting worried! And I don't care what people say, I HATE the crawling stage. I'd rather them go straight to walking so 8 months of crawling for me is TORTURE. Maybe it's my way of being taught patience ... can you tell it's not working? :)

Anyway- I'm sorry for the lack of blog posts! We really haven't been up to much, though, as you can tell! Cam just got our garage 100% organized and ready for me to start painting again and I'm SOOO excited! It's been long overdue and I'm definitely needing an outlet.

We're missing our family and friends a TON, but we still love it here. We're doing good besides our house of sickies! Can't wait to see everyone again in April!

My wish is your command... I like it! Dodger's too busy being a musical genius to walk, don't you know that Ash? But really, that's amazing. I can't wait to see you guys!

Oh such a sweet post. Sometime if Dodger will do it, I'd love a video. I decided that's what I live for. This stupid virus is ridiculous. I still have no energy or motivation.
The nursery will be good for Dodger. He'll see all the kids walking and think maybe he should too. It's not like he can't do it, because we all have seen him walk. Crazy little cutie. Can't wait for April too.
