We had a pretty rough holiday season over here. For a couple weeks before Christmas the kids both had these coughs that, while not a big deal, wouldn't quit, so the doctor put them on antibiotics. Then three days before Christmas my husband got hit (hard) by the flu, and the day before Christmas my body decided it was going to throw up it's hands in surrender to the fight against my sinuses it had been fighting on my behalf. We survived Christmas and only had to cancel two get-togethers. While we were all sitting around recuperating on the couch the boy broke out in a crazy rash all over his chest, back, and face that came bearing the festive greeting: "Merry Christmas! Here's the penicillin allergy we know you've always dreamed of!" Luckily the only ill-effects he felt were funny looking spots all over his body that cleared up fine. Dad's close to better. I'm getting there, too. Sister was the only family member to come out of the past two weeks unscathed, medically speaking. She refused to make us dinner, but she was extra sweet and agreeable so I won't hold it against her.
Anyway, all that to say that I'm actually pretty glad the holidays are over. I'm sad to be glad about it, but it's over, it's behind us, we're moving forward...except for this post which is throwing us back to Lisi Loo's Christmas Dress.
itty bitty post about if you follow us on instagram...but if not, we've got an itty bitty baby scheduled to make her appearance in June! Everyone is very excited. Lisi Loo's going to be a great big sister but so far is barely mildly interested. Her brother, on the other had, has a lot more questions that he had last time around, and I'm not sure we're going to make it through this pregnancy with simple placations about how this kid got in my belly, and even more so how it's going to get out. Wish me luck! With those conversations...and all the rest, too, of course!
Hope all your holidays were happy, healthier than ours, and here's to a fabulous new start and new year!
