It all really began on Wednesay night. the kiddos were just kind of lazy acting. After supper instead of playing they climbed up into Brian's lap and watched Home Alone. The up side was that I caught this incredibly cute picture of the three of them.
Eli was up on and off throughout the night Wednesday night feeling bad. We struggled through and let him sleep in some Thursday morning hoping that he would feel well enough to have fun at his daycare Christmas party... He didn't really, but he went to daycare (and we went to work) for a while anyway. Ava on the other hand, was very excited about going to her party. She was so excited to get to wear her boots to daycare. Poor Eli was feeling so bad that I didn't even take a picture of him in his cute reindeer shirt for the party. I let him lie on the couch and watch TV as long as possible.
By early in the afternoon, we left work and picked up both kids hoping a night at home would provide the extra rest they needed. It didn't work, by bedtime both were running fevers. We divided up for the night having given both kids som Motrin. I spent the night in Eli's bed with him and Brian took Ava into our bed. Eli was up a couple times through the night so we knew Friday morning we wouldn't be going anywhere... it was time for the doc. Friday morning we all slept in some and then the kids watched some TV. I don't know what it is about a laundry basket that they love so much, but apparently it is the perfect TV viewing spot for Loony Toons.
After our trip to the doctor, we came home, dolled out the antibiotics and managed to get everyone a restful afternoon at home including a nap. After a nap and some steroids, Eli was a wild man. Both kids woke up ready to play (a good sign). So it appears that we are working our way back to good health once again.
The last thing I have to share is from early in the week. Ava picked up a toy phone and started jabbering away. I'm not certain what she is saying, but the video is worth sharing anyway.
