Back From Sicky Land!

Well, there hasn't been a lot of time to blog lately b/c the girls have been sick TWICE in a row! We had one healthy week in between viruses. Poor Mary Kate had her first ear infection! Hannah has never had one, so this was my first ear infection to care for as a parent and let me tell you......ear infections are the WORST! We have had many sleepless nights around here in the past few weeks, and I'm so very thankful that things are finally getting back to normal.

A while back Hannah asked me to make her her very own nursing pillow. I know that sounds a little strange, especially to those of you without children, but let me just explain that little girls want to copy EVERYTHING they see their mommies do, including nursing babies! It's actually quite hilarious....when Hannah "feeds" her babies, she pinches her belly fat and nurses her baby from her belly! haha I guess that's what it looks like I'm doing in her eyes :o) Anyways, below are some pics of the finished product. I made a small Boppy style pillow, but added a strap to it b/c Hannah wanted hers to be just like mine.


Hannah has been LOVING her tap/ballet class! She gets so excited every Friday and just can't wait to get there! As you can see below, she's a pretty adorable little dancer!


And finally, some random pics of my little cuties:
