The (almost) Birthday Boy

Wow! I have a lot to update. I'll start back with a picture of Sims. He is almost 1! His birthday is next Wednesday. What a wonderful year it has been with our littlest guy. At 11 moths old he can say, 'mama', 'dada', 'bye-bye', 'baba', 'hi', and 'hola'. I am not kidding. It is hilarious. I'll walk into the room and out comes, 'hola'!!! I'm wondering if I can claim that he is bi-lingual. So here is little Sims saying 'hola' to you. I will be back soon with more new! :)


Ballet 2012

Kate and Claire had their ballet recital a few weeks ago. They absolutely love it and I love their teacher; we were in the same ballet class in middle school and the ballet director is a childhood friend.  

Claire: Summer Sun

Ready for the big performance!

 Kate: Ocean Waves

Chicken Pox

I'm home for the second Sunday in a row. Last Sunday I stayed home with Sims because he was running a low grade fever. This Sunday I am staying home because Claire and Sims have the Chicken Pox and Jack is now running a fever. His fever is so much higher though, around 103, so I do not think he is getting the Pox. :)
Claire and Sims both started breaking out first of the week. Claire has been vaccinated, but Sims is too young to have received it. I called the doctor's office and I could tell they didn't believe me when I told them I thought that is what we had. Both the doctor and the nurse were surprised that they actually had it, especially that Claire had it. The good news for Sims is that he will not have to be vaccinated now.
Both are feeling fine, just itchy. Sims will be crawling around, stop  to scratch, then keep on crawl. So I'm at home today with 2 itches, and a pitiful little fever boy. We'll be resting and watching a lot of Dora. :) On another note, does anyone else answer her when she asks a question? I feel rude if I don't respond. :)
