Good news? Riley has finally cut 2 teeth! they came through on the same day (last Friday). She won’t let me take a picture though. Dylan has yet sprouted his own…

Bad news? We have all had colds here. Riley got it worse than everyone. Probably because of her teeth. The weekend of getting a Christmas tree and seeing Santa for the first time turned into cuddling the kids and sitting in the shower steam to break up nasty coughs and stuffy noses. Plus I had to aspirate both baby noses and it breaks my heart to do that. They both hate it and cry like you wouldn’t believe. And Riley’s face broke out, so she now has terribly chapped cheeks and nose.

Riley hasn’t been able to sleep laying down so she and I are camped out in the living room so she can sleep in her chair while the boys are all snuggled in the bedroom. Yes, they still sleep in our room. I can’t bear to take them out of there, but I know the time is coming because up until now they have been sleeping in the same crib. They are getting physically too big for that and two cribs will not fit in there.

Dylan seems fine now, he just had some mild sniffles. Riley was sneezing waterfalls, poor thing. Gross I know. But when you are a mom, talk about snot and poop and vomit no longer phase you…
