I finally got some things planted in the garden today. All of the kids helped for a bit but Tate and I had to finish while the girls napped. Tate had his own agenda which included his toy excavator and dump truck. I tried to be as patient as possible but he instead on playing right where I planted green beans and potatoes.  He started running a fever again this evening. The girls still aren't feeling great either. Today Brett and I have been married for 7 years!

Today Ellie had a fever around 100 all day. Both of the girls were crabby. Tate is a huge mess and is having a hard time getting back into real life where you can't watch the iPad all day and you have to eat what mom cooks. I kept him home from school today so he could sleep in. Nothing ruins an evening faster than having a code brown appear in the tub. Good job Audrey!

Tate has been so sick. He started vomiting every time he takes medicine so he just has to endure his fever until it breaks. It has been about 100 for a few days and the poor kid is miserable. You know he is sick when he wants to take a nap in his bed and refuses to drink Capri sun. Brett took him to the doctor and he tested negative for strep.

Audrey loves to say the word hi. She practiced all the way to town today. Tate ended up with a fever by the time school was out. He has a terrible cough too. The girls had their 12 month well-check today. Audrey officially has two teeth but she also has a cough. Both girls got 4 shots and a hemoglobin test on the toe. It was a long, rough day around here. I felt very outnumbered since they were all so needy. Brett attended Tate's parent/teacher conference. He is doing so well and seems to be right where he should. He needs s little work on numbers and letters and holding his scissors correctly. I am so proud of him.

The girls had a great party. It took them a while to warm up but all the other kids seemed to have a really great time. My heart is filled with joy. I have been so blessed and I am glad I am able to just let go and enjoy wonderful days like today. I must admit that events are so much more enjoyable when you are in your own baby-proofed house!

I can't believe the girls are one. It has been such a crazy year but we did it!!!  I don't even remember much about the first couple of months.

Today was interesting to say the least. The girls have really started to fight over toys and Audrey thinks she might die if Ellie takes something from her. The Internet guy showed up right when I was ready to put the girls down for a nap. Tate was pooping and kept yelling at me for help. I was trying to feed the girls so he had to wait his turn. He didn't listen and showed up naked in the living room with a messy butt. Then he ran to the pot two more times while they guy was here. We played outside after supper and it is a major workout keeping the girls safe. They have really started to enjoy being outside.
