A Month

Today marks one month since Luke was born.  It seems so long and so short at the same time.

I woke up sick this morning.  I have a sore throat.  Elizabeth was coughing in her sleep too, so I suspect she has the same sore throat.  We are staying home for a few days to avoid infecting other people.

I’m actually surprised that it took me this long to get sick.  When I get stressed, my immune system is the first thing to go.  I actually don’t feel THAT horrible, but we are still going to take it easy for a few days.

Elizabeth is still in her pajamas and she is lying down in her swimming pool full of beans.  Yesterday, she dumped a cup of water into it (what?  She thinks water belongs in swimming pools) so I have to throw away the beans when we are done with them instead of storing them like usual.  So I left it out last night so that she could get a good solid playtime out of it first.  I highly recommend this as a toddler activity, if you don’t mind sweeping beans off the floor.  (These are dried garbanzo beans and by far the easiest ones to clean up.  Rice is the worst.)
