fighting off ear infections

The day after I posted that last post, the boys got sick 🙁 What started off as a cold virus, quickly turned into ear infections and the beginning stages of pneumonia . . . poor bubbas!

Wiley ran a low-grade fever for a week straight :(

So we’ve been hanging low the past 12 days, with lots of snuggling and TV watching to help past the time. Prior the boys weren’t really interested in watching cartoons (which was fine by me). It just didn’t seem to capture their attention for very long. But all that’s changed now! They point to the TV and say “ohh ohh, ahh ahh” to watch Curious George and tap their head (5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed) or pretend to drive a car (The Wheels on the Bus) to watch a sing-along DVD called “The Mother Goose Club.” They finally both woke up with some energy on Tuesday! Unfortunately, they shared their germs with Daddy, so he’s been sick in bed all week, but Lord willing, this will soon be all behind us!!

Fortunately, the weather was beautiful last week, so we spent a lot of time outside soaking in some vitamin D, while throwing the ball for Porter.
