Well we started out the weekend when my husband got home on Friday. We decided to go to Eugene. We took the kids to Chuckee Cheese they had a blast, then my hubby decided we should stay the night up there. We drove around for almost 2 hrs trying to find a hotel that wasn't full. We finally did, and it was not that great oh well. The next day we tried to take the kids to see the Water Horse, buster loved it, but the girls did not co-operate so well. We ended up leaving before it was finished, luckily it was at the 1.50 theater. When we finally got home on Saturday buster had a fever, so we spent all day Sunday at home with sick kids. I took them to the Dr. on Monday and he said they had tonsilitis. They are taking antibiotics now, but are still dealing with fevers off and on and nasty coughs. I also got sick on Monday and have yet to kick it. So far the baby seems fine other than her stupid thrush that we have been trying to get rid of for 4 weeks. The baby finally started liking baths ,but I have yet to find a baby soap that doesn't give her a rash. Buster started taking a Taekwondo class at the YMCA. He has had one class so far and my hubby said he did really well. I wasn't able to go because sweetpea and I were sick. It was so cute to see him so excited about it when he got home. Hopefully he will have fun doing it. Well that is about how our week has gone hopefully it will be better next week.

Fun with three!

So I have been pretty busy adjusting to having three kids, and I thought I should give you a little update. Our sweet baby girl is doing great. I have yet to think of a nickname for her, and it might take a little time. She is a very sweet and good natured baby so far :) I am still suffering from a lack of sleep, but it hasn't been too bad. Buster has been going a little stir crazy and I can't wait for warmer weather so he can get some energy out. It will actually be nice to start working at the Y again because it is a good outlet for him. Sweetpea is having a little bit of hard time adjusting. She wants to be held more than ever, and she thinks the new one is a doll that she can play with. I have to keep her in my sights at all times. Sweetpea gave us a scare last week. I was in my bedroom with the baby, and she pushed a chair up to the baby gate climbed over, then climbed on to the counter and got some childrens tylenol of the top shelf. Apparently she was not enticed by the two bags a valentines candy :) Luckily buster took them away from her before she consumed the entire bottle. I had to take her to have her blood drawn and for a dr. visit. Her blood levels were elevated to 68 and the Dr. said that if they were 100 or over she would have been hospitalized. Fortunately she got away with just a bad tummy ache. Other than that we are all doing well!
