While Evelyn has been in stuffed animal heaven, Nathaniel has been busy trying to get over (another) cold that he managed to pick up. Lord knows that we are so hoping to be healthy when this baby makes an appearance, but in the meantime, we are stocking up on Kleenex, disinfectant, and hand sanitizer. With a little luck and a whole lot of rubbing alcohol, maybe we can ride out the rest of this cold and flu season without a hitch!

Meanwhile, Nathaniel celebrated Valentines Day at school this week. With everything else going on, we didn't have the time to make a Valentine box for him so I thanked my lucky stars that we had kept his box from last year (and that he still had a special place in his heart for Spiderman) and we ran with it!

One of the best discoveries we've made recently to aid with the whole Pregnant Mommy Relaxation theme we've been going with has been some new bath toys for Evie. Oftentimes, we will drop her brother off at school, pick up a few items from Target, and then come home where she will spend a good long time engrossed in her toys while she plays mermaid, princess, and tub graffiti artist. Meanwhile, I get to sit quietly in the next room over listening to her songs and conversations with her water baby doll and remembering that sometimes it's important for mommies to have a time out too! Goodness knows that these opportunities will be few and far between in the very near future...

A: Mommy is tired today because she didn't get a lot of sleep last night.
A: Our house was making lots of noise last night. It was so cold out last night that our rafters were creaking in the attic.
E: Our attic?
E: Then it needs a jacket.
A: Houses aren't really meant to wear jackets.
E: But the house was whining. It doesn't have a mouth, but it was whining. It needs a jacket.
A: A jacket? For the house?
A: But that would be an awfully big jacket.
E: Yes! A BIG one!!
A: Where would we get one?
E: At the store. Maybe all of our family could carry it back home. And then we're going to Batman's house!
E: Maybe tomorrow we can plan on my idea?
