Happy St PINK's Day!

That is according to Ms. Analese, who wants nothing to do with the color green! As I tried to explain what today was, she kept saying "no, no, no...PINK, PINK PINK. It's Happy St. Pink Day!"

I thought she was rather clever.

Thanks for all the well-wishes, as Analese and I were able to escape this nasty stomach virus. Mara was hit pretty hard...just when we thought she was on the mend, the vomiting would begin again. Monday night she blessed me by vomiting right in my face. So not fun, and I still can not believe I didn't vomit right back on her!

After all that vomiting, she refused to eat. Anything. It took her 3 days of no vomit and no food before she began swallowing the food she put into her mouth. I kept her fluids up, but the last thing we need is our Mara to not eat!

Anyway, I am really behind, as Mara has become very attached to her mama these days. I am once again getting used to doing things one-handed! Night-time has been hard, and she has been up every few hours just yelling out for me until she ends up in our bed. It's funny, one night I told her how mommy really needed to get some sleep that night, and how I needed them to both sleep until morning. Well, Mara was up her now usual times, but yelled for "Daddy" every time. We couldn't help but laugh :)
So this is short, as Greg is in there now putting the girls to bed, and all I hear is "Mommy" over and over I am sure to get a visitor soon! Hopefully I will be able to catch up with everyone in the next few days!

Glad to hear you made it through healthy (but tired!), hopefully the worst is over now!

I like Mara's idea, St. Pink's Day, why not?!
