Photo Friday-The Sickos Edition

The only pictures I took this week were of my two sick children. Well, now Padyn has the cough, too, but I don't have pictures of her. Well, I have a few, but I can't put pictures of her in the bathtub with Robbie on the internet. Six seems too old for that, even when there is nothing showing.

But that's right...both Kate and Robbie have been sick this week. Kate came home from school on Tuesday with a fever and has yet to be free of it. There's also the horrific cough that makes you wonder why you haven't seen her lung come up out of her chest yet. As I type, she is hacking away in her sleep. And really, she has just gotten progressively worse as the week dragged on. Today she was a bit perkier, but that fever is still hanging on. And there is a possible ear infection looming in her future...

Robbie woke up from his nap on Wednesday with the cough. His low grade fever started yesterday. Today, and especially tonight, he was a pathetic little creature. His nose is dripping all over his face, his eyes are starting to get swollen, and he has been waking up every few minutes to cry for a few seconds before falling back into a fitful sleep.

Padyn isn't free and clear yet, unfortunately. While there has been no fever for her, she did start coughing yesterday. It's nothing like her sister's, but it has potential. We'll see what the weekend holds.

But enough of that. What you are really here for are the pictures...so here they are.

Robbie's new favorite thing is the bath. I have him get in with Padyn. She helps me wash him and has shown his the best splashing techniques. Not that he needs any modeling. He seems to have that part down.
Here is Kate this afternoon with Padyn's Tacky the Penguin that she made at school this week. She has become quite the expert on penguins as they have been learning all about them over the past couple weeks. Kate's face looks a whole lot better today than it has the last two days. Yesterday her eyes were much more swollen.Here's Robbie, just hanging out this afternoon. He likes sitting up and playing with his toys, but only if someone else is in the room with him. That person doesn't have to be playing with him, or even sitting with him. Just in the room. Otherwise, he's not a happy camper and he lets you know it.There's my cute boy. See the scratches on the right side of his forehead? He gave those to himself this morning. The doctor asked if they were cat scratches. Nope. Just plain old too-long baby fingernail scratches...
He looks happy here. He's not so happy anymore. Hopefully tomorrow will bring with it healthier children. And no rain. And sunshine. And a pony.
Happy Friday.
