Not a Winter person

So, last week we had this little glimpse of Spring-like weather. For about 3 days, the temps hovered at 60 or above, coaxing us outside and teasing us with visions of a mild winter.

I really shouldn't complain. It is cold, yes, but we haven't had to deal with a lot of snow or ice to mess with driving and school schedules. But those 60s...they just felt so NICE!
Baby enjoys looking at the world from his cushy little stroller-throne. His sister enjoys having a real baby to push around in a stroller. Win-win.
Martin has another cold. ANOTHER. COLD. This one is a doozy, too. He had four breathing treatments yesterday, and still he sounds wheezy and hoarse. His little nose is all runny and he's a coughing, sneezing mess. Also, his gums are causing him a great deal of discomfort. My poor little respiratorily-compromised, teething baby. (Family history of asthma. He picks up every little germ and turns it into an upper-respiratory nightmare.)

Also, I can't take these other kids outside. It is cold and it rained all weekend, so even if I could convince them to go out in the cold, they'd come back all muddy and miserable minutes later.

I am SOOOO not a Winter person. Cabin fever! Vitamin D deficiency! Stir-crazy children!

Under ten weeks to Spring Break...

Oh dear! Poor Marty! Luke has had an ear infection for 3-4 weeks. It is so rough to see our babies sick. I hope little M feels better soon ... I hear in KS it will be 50's on Friday, so I hope you'll have a warm day soon too!
