Shoe on!!!

Nothing is slowing Peyton down these days. She is running on her cast and it doesn't bother her one bit.
I wrap it in a bag and put one of my socks on her when we go out to keep it from getting totally filthy.
I bought her some sandals and they have about a 1/2 inch sole so it makes her legs more even. She will freak out and cry "shoe on!!" if you try to take it off. Its so funny.

Happy Easter

Our Easter was delayed by a few days because of Caden being sick, but it was still great and the kids really enjoyed themselves.
They enjoyed hunting for eggs, but enjoyed eating all the candy more!!! They love "shoklat"!!!!!

The vomitorium

Caden has been so sick!!! He got rotovirus from the children's museum on Thursday night I think. He started on Friday with vomitting at least every 5 to 10 minutes for the entire night. Needless to say I had to call in sick all weekend.
I talked to his pediatrician on Monday who said that he should be admitted to the hospital for IV fluids, but he knew how hard that would be for me with the other kids. We agreed to try forcing gatoraid in him with a syringe since he would NOT drink it. That went over really well........I am sure the neighbours thought I was killing him with the screams. At least it helped a bit and his mouth was not dry. He couldn't even wet his little lips before that his mouth was so dry.
Whenever he would throw up he would look at me all pathetic and say "sorry mommy". Broke my heart to see him like this.
He is still sick, but getting better slowly every day.
This is very contagious and I am just hoping that the other kids don't catch it or I am moving far away from the city of poopopolous!!!!
My whole house is going to need to be steam cleaned when we are done. It was so bad, I had resorted to wearing Bob's shorts on Sunday as he had pooped or puked on all my clothes!

Peyton's boo boo

Well Peyton has officially broken her leg. She broke her tibia (the big shin bone) near her ankle. She is in a cast for about 3 weeks and we will get another x-ray and hopefully it can come off. She was a trooper yesterday. We spent from 11am until almost 6pm in the medical center seeing dr's and getting x-rays. She was so good considering if was right in the middle of nap time.
She now has a hot pink cast up to her knee. She will still not walk on it. She started crawling a little today to get around, but everytime she puts any weight on it she yells "owww".
Really doesn't seem to bother her unless she tries to stand. She keeps wanting down so I put her down and she immediately says "up me!!!" She is going to get sick of sitting on her butt soon.

Easter egg hunts

I took the weekend off work and we took the kids to two different Easter egg hunts. Saturday was our neighbourhood one and Sunday was one with my Mothers of multiples group. The kids really enjoyed and Spencer got a bunch of eggs. They didn't even mind posing with the Easter bunny this year.
Peyton fell on the jungle gym on Sunday and won't put any weight on her left leg. We will see how it is tomorrow morning.

Swimming in the ice water.......well not quite

Spencer went swimming today for the first time this year. The water was only 77 degrees. I was hoping he remembered how to swim from last year as I certainly did not want to jump in to save him. (what a good mommy huh lol) I won't get in until its at least 85 degrees.
He jumped in and came up with a look of total shock and told me the water was cold. That did not stop him however from swimming for about 30 minutes. The babies missed out as they were napping. Yes he is wearing his underwear. His bathing suit was in the babies room.
I just love kids and how they get such enjoyment out of the little things.

Mini me

Caden's name should be "mini me". He follows Spencer around and does everything that he does. Spencer was running around with his nap sack (or back hack as he calls it) and Caden saw him and he had to have one on too. He is like his little shadow. Spencer loves the attention too.
