After another night of high fevers, N brought E into the clinic for a check. Jairie was off today but thankfully had Dr. Ruel covering for him in the walk-in clinic. It was a long almost two-hour wait, most of which E slept through. He did get nauseous at one point and luckily made it … Continue reading Update
The day started off with a feverish, lethargic boy climbing into our bed and dozing until 9am. N and I spent the evening prior filling plastic eggs with M&M's and hiding them around the house. E woke up enough to join in the hunt and open up his Easter basket, but was quick to return … Continue reading Happy Easter!
Lately these March days have been dreary and cold. The forecast calls for rain today. Not much has changed for me. This will be my 4th day of rest. I'm starting to feel a bit antsy. Today after getting the kids off to school and daycare, I made a pit stop at Walmart for some … Continue reading Slow.

But as it goes, I will take it in stride and do whatever I need to do to take care of myself and this baby. I have to … Continue reading Hello, old friend

So far.
My boy with the iron clad immune system has succumbed to a stomach bug. Fortunately it seems to be a minor case, but of course it would happen on March Break! It started last night around 6pm. He all of a sudden said he felt like he needed to throw up while pensively tapping his … Continue reading The streak has ended.

It's March and the weather has been beautifully mild the last few days. The kids have been able to ride bikes and play outside in light jackets and running shoes and Mo has been ever-so-faithful at tracking in dirt and mud all over my clean floors. All signs that point to spring's impending arrival. The … Continue reading Comings and Goings
Finally in the home stretch of this last pregnancy. Part of me feels like I need to savour this time more; really enjoy what is likely my last pregnancy, ever.
