My cute kids!

So since my blog is still so new, I'll have to tell you all how the kids are doing. Hugo is such a sweet little boy- he never gives us any trouble at all. He hardly ever cries and he is such a cuddler. You can alredy tell he has such a sweet personality and he is going to be so much fun.
He had kind of a hard birth and and had a couple of problems while he was in the hospital, but since we have been home everything has been pretty good. Well over Christmas break it seems like everyone was sick, including me. Shawn got sick, Lacy got sick, both our familys were sick. Well its not too bad when Lacy gets sick because she can tell us what is wrong and we know how to help her. When Hugo got sick he is just so helpless. It breaks my heart. He started out with just a cough, but it turned into RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and double ear infections. He is doing much better now but he had anti-biotics for his infection and he had to take medicine through this breathing maching every few hours for a couple of weeks and we still do it a couple times a day when he doesn't sound very good. Lacy has been a good little helper to me and very sweet to Hugo. She loves to turn the machine on and help me put the mask on her little brother. He has gotten used to it and doesn't scream the whole time anymore. We are just glad he didn't have to be in the
hospital!! (It still kinda breaks my heart though, he's so tiny and sweet!)

As for Lacy, she is just fine! She loves to wear "princess dresses" and play Wii with her daddy. She is boxing him in this picture, she's actually really good. She beats me almost every time! As for the princess issue, you can't get her out of dresses! She will go pull my shirts out of the closet if her play dresses arent clean. Lots of times she will kick and scream when I make her take off my shirts, (her princess dress) to get ready for the day. Today she found this dress at Grandma's house that Chantal had sent over for her birthday. She immediately put it on and says, "mommy, I am your highness!" I don't know where she comes up with some of this stuff. She is so dang smart!! Right now her thing is, she wants to know everyone's birthday. She knows when her birthday is, Hugo's, Shawn's and mine. She will ask you what your name is and if you dont tell her your full name, she'll say, "no whats all your names!?" and then she wants to know your birthday. If your lucky, she'll remember then tell you next time she see's you!

My kids are pretty darn cute!! And I'm not saying that because I have to!

I am glad you finally got the dresses! Cindy gave then to Katie and I knew Lacy would get more use from them. She is so cute!

Awwww, they're getting so big! Hugo is definitely Shawn's little boy...those eyes!

We have asthma in our family and little Gagey (well, 5 yr. old "little") has had a breathing machine since he was Hugo's age, too. It's not fun...glad Lacy is so cute and helpful for her little brother!!
