A bit sniffly...

So the ides of March took it's toll - the cough that Helen had when we came home from the hospital finally made the rounds...first to mom and then to babies. But thanks to the miracle of mother's milk, the babes didn't get much more than a stuffy nose - and that was suffering enough thank you! I however was totally knocked out by this bug. You never appreciate your voice until you don't have it for a few days...and let me tell you, having two very active,outspoken and assertive 4-year olds and no voice to yell "we don't touch sleeping babies!!!" kinda stinks. And I'm not exaggerating - I had NO voice left. Heck, it's been a month and I'm still a touch froggy sounding!

We moved bath time to the big tub one night and Nora and Stella LOVED it! They just floated around the tub looking at everything! And cried when it was time to get out! They are still very sleepy...and that just doesn't seem to change (which is good for now!) You'll also notice that the hospital bracelets are gone, leaving only a little pink nail polish on Nora's toes in case of mix up!

They do smile on occasion, but only when they're half asleep! They are generally happy babies and don't complain too much...except maybe when their big sisters are playing too rough with them!
