I know, I suck....

I am 100% aware of the fact that I super suck at blogging lately. I new it was bad when I even got a few comments. Secretly I kinda liked the comments because that made me think maybe someone does look at this thing! Anyways, to sum up that past while....
KateLyn decided awhile back that is was awesome to pull herself up to everything and she looks so big doing it but this is how I found her from her nap one day. Needless to say her crib was lowered immediately, What a cutie pie though right? She also loves to clap and give kisses now!
One Sunday morning while getting dressed for church I noticed this super weird rash on his chest. So I asked Nick what he thought and we both immediately thought, what the crap do chicken pox look like? Like I know! Anyways we went on with our day still checking on them every now and then. It seriously looked like tiny zits but he wasn't itching them and he didn't have a fever.
When we got home we googled chicken pox and what he had looked like the early stage pics but I was not convinced. The next morning there were a few more and later that night a few more on his arms and belly. So I'm thinking at this point he totally has them . We totally hold down in our house and are not leaving just to be safe. Then after a few days he gets violently ill. I'm talking puke everywhere! On my couch, on the floor, on Katelyns head as Nick rushed him into the bathroom and passed over her head. GROSS! Nick and I were both dry heaving while cleaning that mess up. After cleaning more puke off my bed and poop off my bathroom floor I was so done and freaking out because puking is a bad side effect of the pox. I hate it so bad when my kids are sick! It's the worst.
We took him to the doctor the next day and the mystery diagnosis was put to rest. It turns out he did not have the chicken pox after all. He has a severe case of eczema caused by a virus is his system that was flu like. Good to know. Although I, thinking he had the chicken pox or something didn't keep my distance and also got sicker that a dog a few days later. Boo.

Last but not least here is the after shot of Aiden. He finally said he wanted to cut he hair so it would make him fast. And he could have small hair like dad and not big hair like mom. What a stud. He sure is one good lookin kid under all that hair!

Guess what? Last week I was seriously going to comment on your blog about needing to post again, but decided not to bug you. he he!

I am totally laughing about Aiden wanting his hair cut so he can be fast and not have big hair like mom. Hilarious!

Guess what else? Olivia has been barfing too, so I'm with you on the dry-heave clean up. She doesn't have what Aiden had. She has been randomly barfing in the middle of the night for the past 2.5 weeks. Then she wakes up the next morning and is just fine. Bizarre.

I am usually home during the days but I don't have a car until spring when felito can break out the scooter bike so we will have to get together then. I haven't seen your kids very much it would be fun to get together and play. I wanted to write and tell you that we found out that we are having a BOY!! We are due around the same time as Jessica maybe a week later on Aug 3. We will expect him late since Andres came late... just wanted to say hi and share our good news. Luv Cami
