7 Quick Takes

Joing Jen and the other Quick Takers!
1. I was hit by sickness again. As a person who rarely catches anything, I find it hard to handle!
2. I was couch ridden with a fever all day yesterday, and alone with the three kids. I didn't know how I was going to get through it, but Maria saved the day and was such an angel. She entertained William and kept him out of trouble, admonished Felicity against doing things many times, peeled me oranges, and read me stories. 
3. Of course there can't be two days of good behavior in a row, so today she is not quite the angel I saw yesterday. Thank goodness I am on the mend. 
4. This little stinker is finally crawling all the time now!
5. Which means he is getting into more things....but surprisingly he is pretty good at listening to no? At 9 1/2 months? Too good to be true? Probably...but while on the couch yesterday he would start to play with the fire place, or stick his hands in the dirt, and my simple "William! No!" seemed to deter him....or else he is really easy to distract and when he turned to look in my direction he saw something else he wanted to do...
6. He is also pulling himself up....

which means he can get into things like the girls' schoolwork..........

BUT thank goodness once he is up he is stuck there, can't move or get back all you need to do is push everything out of his reach. 
7. We've had a couple of big snowfalls in the last couple of days...the girls have yet to build a snowman this winter...maybe today will be the day? Only if Daddy gets home before it gets dark because I am not quite feeling up to playing in the snow today... 


  1. Hope you feel better soon! And your obedient 9 1/2 month old is impressive! :)

  2. Get better soon..sure hope you dont have that nasty flu!
