I still can't believe we bought a house!

We were supposed to be moved in by now, but the holidays and the endless parade of illnesses derailed that plan. I've packed a total of 1 box. Yup, ONE. Embarrassing, yes. Did I mention the fever? 

Anyways, today I had to meet the carpet measuring person at the house. Fortunately baby E was feeling pretty good this morning and up for the outing. He slept most of the time we were gone. My sister dropped by for a visit while I was at the house, so it was nice to get some adult interaction! But just to prove how well he was feeling, baby E promptly threw up all over her. *sigh* Baby steps. To make up for it, though, I believe he bestowed on her the first real smile. I'll admit, I'm a bit jealous! I've been waiting for that smile for weeks, and I'm sure I would have gotten it already if he hadn't been so ill. So, I did what any rational person would do and spent the next ten minutes trying to recreate the circumstances that produced that little smile. He looked at me and turned back to her and smiled again. Agh! But finally he gave one to me too. I've been working hard for another one all day, but he's not humoring me! I know, I'm being greedy!

I was happy when T got home cause I'm still running the fever, so I'm not able to cuddle with E like I want to. 

Huh, it kinda looks like he's smiling in this picture! 

Praying for continued healing, and for the two oldest kids who are still visiting their grandparents. We are missing them around here!
