Busy month

Wow! It's been a while. Here's the updates in a nutshell: Tia has mono and strep and has only been to school 2 half days since before Christmas Break. She had a fever of 102+ for 9 days!!! A few nights ago her tonsils were so big she had a hard time sleeping on her back. (Got steroids for that.) Max is on breathing treatments a few times a day for a respiratory virus but is finally finishing that up I think. I really hope the mono and strep do not spread through the house. The new puppy is cute as can be but...a new puppy. He nips and pees and poops and chews etc. Tyler seems to be the only one in good health right now. He just has a chronic case of Stubborn-itis. Holy moly that boy is stubborn!

Now for the good news:
We had a wonderful Christmas. The kids had a great day and just watching them enjoy it was fantastic.
Our family was made a forever family on December 26 and it was beautiful! I will post pics later.
Tonight Max took 10 STEPS!!!! He's been stuck at 4 for a while now but tonight he did 10 followed by several 8's. He is so proud of himself. (Not unlike his mom.) It was so great! I hope to video it and put it on here.

WOW! How exciting that Max is walking!! What a big boy! I think it will be a while for David, but he is pulling himself to stand on a regular basis now, so who knows?

I'm so sorry about all of the sickness at your house! Ugh...that must be hard. At least you have a new puppy to keep your mind off of it! :) It was good to hear from you. My mom told me just the other day that she really enjoys reading your blog and just loves your kids! I must say that I agree.

Hope everyone is healthy soon!

I am TRULY excited for you and exhausted just reading it all. you have a way of ballancing everything with a grace about you that most of us dream of. you are an inspiration to all of us, but now ALL of your children - yes, i said 'yours!' finally!!!!!

Sooooo sorry to hear that the kids are sick. I was just sick for 3 weeks and am so grateful the kids didn't get it. There is nothing worse than sick kids. I hope they start to feel better soon. I am glad to hear Max is doing so well. All it took was a little Huff loves. I miss you guys too. How is your extended family? Did you spend Christmas with any of them? Your puppy is so cute. Our dog just barely got repotty trained from our move in October last week. Talk about a pain. I think Aspen must have passed her Stubbornitis to Tyler cause our case is so bad it could travel that far. What to do, what to do? Well, good luck getting back to healthy. ttyl

Well that explains why you weren't at Baseball. We missed you all! Hope Tia and Max feel better soon.
