No post yesterday.  I spent all day taking care of my poor sick babies!  Carly was up ALL NIGHT LONG Tuesday night.  She was just not going to sleep and refusing her bottle too.  I finally got her to sleep between 4:30 and 5am.  Poor little baby!  She woke up with a fever of 101.9, so off to the doctor we went yesterday.  Sure enough, poor baby has her first ear infection!  I suspected that's what it was when she didn't want to sleep or eat.  So, she is on Amoxicillin for 10 days.  Poor baby was just pitiful yesterday.  All she wanted was to be held - she would just scream if I tried to put her down.  Needless to say, it was a very rough day.  Hence the no blog post!  Callie was such a good little baby, but she was starting to sneeze and snot all over the place too.

Today is much better! Just 24 hours of antibiotic and Carly is like a new baby!  She feels so much better.  Callie is starting to look a little more pitiful.  I won't be surprised if she doesn't start with a fever tomorrow and get an ear infection as well.  Fingers crossed she can avoid it though!

Today was an absolutely GORGEOUS day.  I opened all the windows to air out all the germies from the house and get some fresh air.  I turned up the music, which never ceases to motivate me, and did some cleaning.  It's amazing how 2 days of being completely consumed with taking care of sick babies can make a house fall apart!  The Izzie hair has been about to drive me INSANE lately as it's everywhere even when I vacuum twice a day in the living room in an attempt to keep it clean for the babies.  Her shedding just gets outrageous when the seasons change!  So, I finally just put everything aside and brushed her today.  I took about 20 minutes and this is what I got ...

Sadly, I could have kept going for a long time and continued to remove hair from her body, but the babies were getting upset!  I hope this will help with the dog hair, because I cannot handle dog hair on my babies!!!

Then I took the babies outside in the stroller to get some fresh air while I cleaned out my car.  It was in desperate need!  It really needs a bath too, but there's only so much I can do in one day!  ;-)  I got all the trash and toys out and vacuumed it.  Looks a lot better!  It was nice to enjoy the beautiful weather and do something productive.  :-)

You can see Carly still looks pitiful even though she is MUCH better!
So, now all the kids are tucked in bed and it's just about time for Mommy and Daddy to relax!  If only I could stop my brain from thinking about the possible government shutdown and possible loss of pay for our family.  Mike has been worrying about it, but I just kept thinking that they would come to an agreement at the last minute or that, even in the even of a government shutdown, Military would still get paid as has happened in the past.  However, it appears that will not be the case this time around.  If there is a shutdown, we will get half our pay on the 15th and if it isn't worked out after that, then we will not get paid at all.  PLEASE pray that none of this happens.  As a family currently living on one income, we cannot afford to have ANY pay withheld!

However, in good news, I am SO EXCITED for tomorrow!!!!!!!!!  My best friend Kelly and her family will be on their way from Florida!!!!!  Haley's best friend Kylie is their daughter as well, and it has been FAR too long since our last visit.  :-)  I am so excited for them to meet Carly and Callie, and for Mickey to have some playmates!
