Coming Soon


I've been uncharacteristically absent from my blog lately. The trip with my family was so much fun! So much so that I was in bed early every day and sleep won out over blogging.

I have 3 FULL cards of pictures that I'm going to attempt to download today, so expect a lot of pictures soon.

Updates to look forward to as well: the boys 1st birthday! They are one year old! Their year old doctor visit, cousin pictures, Egg Roll pictures, and a museum review.

One little update right now: the boys got their first dose of the MMR vaccine on Monday. All day yesterday they both just laid in my arms moaning and radiating heat. It was awful! Pirate's fever broke around 4pm and he was pleasant and happy. Professor, on the other hand, was horribly sick. He cried every time I put him down and just sat in my arms not moving. Tylenol didn't help, and I figured the best thing for him was sleep. Around 2am I woke up to him screaming. When I picked him up I knew he was very sick, burning hot to the touch. Temperature read 103.4 degrees. More Tylenol, some cool water in a sippy cup and a lot of cuddling and nursing and it went down to around 101 in about an hour. I was all ready to call the on call doctor if it didn't go down because he was so miserable.

He finally went to sleep around 5am, and Pirate woke up around 6am for the day. I was BEAT. Juice was kind enough to work from home for an hour or so this morning so I sleep some. This morning he is feeling better, although his fever comes and goes. Ugh, I hate this shot. I remember it being hard on Butterfly too.

Look for pictures soon!



  1. Poor guys! I hope they recover from their shots today!

  2. That is no way to spend a birthday. I do hope the boys are the happy smiling selves super soon.

  3. Hope the boys are feeling better soon! When Aidan gets a fever Tylenol never works so I always use Motrin. Shots can be rough. Hope their birthday was a good one otherwise.

  4. Oh that was me by the way, and not Julien. :) Didn't know he was signed in.

    So sorry about the shot! Yikes, but thanks for the warning so I won't totally flip out if Evie has the same sort of thing. I hope they are both feeling better.

  6. Hey there!!! I caught up on my reading! You certainly had quite a day at the Easter Egg Roll. I agree when you said that it was nuts with people because it was Obama's first year there. Hopefully it will go back to the way you remember it next year.

    I delayed the girls' MMR shots until the end of last year. They were 2 1/2. I was nervous about the whole vaccine controversy and thought I would just play it safe. (Didn't help though! I'll update you about that on the FB!)

    Miss you!
