Things have been going well for our family, other than all of my boys being sick with some awful bug. It started out last Sunday, when Dylan fell asleep on me at church (that never happens) and quickly coming down with a fever. That quickly led to croup, which kept us home-bound until Thursday. And wouldn't you know it, as soon as Dylan seemed to be feeling better, Owen started running a fever. And then Ben! Seriously, my boys are a hot, fever-y mess right now. Luckily Dylan seems to be coming out of it, but he still is trying to kick a nasty cough. I'm praying that I don't get sick, because I feel like I'm barely keeping things going with my sick boys. I'm sure that this is pretty normal for moms of young kids, but I get super paranoid when my babies get sick. Like, check their temperature every 30 minutes, keep referring back to babycenter.com and webMD to make sure that I don't need to rush them to the ER for a fever of 101.6, fretting that my digital thermometer might not be accurate and my child might actually have a fever of 104.6 instead.... oh dear.
Poor baby and his fever-induced rosy cheeks.
Despite all these no-good sick days, I must report one thing: Dylan will now take medicine like a champ! Previously, Ben and I have had terrible luck getting Dylan to take any medicine. We always had to mix his medicine with juice or soda and had to be quite sneaky about it, otherwise it would throw a huge fit and spit it out everywhere. Folks, we have turned a corner and Dylan will take any liquid med we've had to give him. Thank goodness, because life is hard enough right now as is.
Now I'm just praying that everyone miraculously gets healthy again overnight. Let's hope, right?
Also, I wanted to share two cute videos of Dylan and Owen. Goodness, they are adorable.
Owen is on the move and has the cutest little army crawl. This video was taken just a few days ago and he's already gotten much faster!
And another cute one:
