Still Puking...

January has brought us some firsts....our first bug, which happened to also be alligned with our first below 0 degree temperatures in Indiana. This led to our first January visit to the doctor and that meant our first opportunity to wear our snow suits....


Needless to say, they both had temperatures when we got to the doctor, but I don't think it was from the flu, just being slightly over-layered. On a more serious note, they hadn't been keeping food down for days and they wanted to check them for dehydration and if they had maintained their weight. We weren't dehydrated, but both were down a few ounces in weight, but after pissing them off by digging in their ears to rule out an ear infection that could have been prolonging the virus, they sent us home with little advice other than to keep doing what we were doing. So, we've bought stock in Pedialyte and we are trucking through.

During this fiasco, we had a visit from Aunty Yen...also known as Jenny, who was my graduate school roommate and a dear friend. She's single but I've always known she'll make a great mom when she finds the right guy. I'm just pretty sure that her visit to Indiana delayed her having children anytime in the next decade. Here's a picture with her (I know they look happy and overall they were the happiest sick babies you've seen, but we cleaned a lot of carpet).
Here are other pictures I hadn't had the opportunity to post earlier in the month...

Uncle Jon is holding Lilly and his girlfriend Jen is holding Addy. They are wearing outfits sent from Joyce and Norman in England--her son Michael is an avid blog reader, so please print this picture out for your mom!

Becky and the girls...Cat, they lost, the jerseys have officially been put away.
I couldn't resist posting this for anyone that thinks because she has red hair, she looks like me. This is Lilly with Dad--they even look alike in their sleep.

Aimee,

Look at my nieces working those snowsuits like they are on a catwalk! I love it:)

Every time I check this blog I see a picture of my beautiful nieces wearing those god-awful Colts jerseys and every time is supposedly the "last time" You can tell Jeremy that I promise that I will not send the girls any more over-the-top outfits, that I will ease off the fur, the chiffon, the ruffles, the fur, and the ribbons. I will only purchase practical clothing. I swear on the Colts;)

Cat....The girls have officially grown out of the colts jerseys (lucky for you). If they recieve anymore "Jon Bennetesk" dresses I will continue to helplessly squeeze them into the preemie colts outfits and post them on the blog.
