I never thought I'd be jealous of a dog..


Mandy's house saw a birth before ours did. I just hope I don't have to give birth on top of old sheets in the kitchen. Ha!

So, can we say that Spring is here? I mean not officially, but do you think we can put away the puffy coats and snow boots? Today was just glorious. We were outside almost all day between running errands in the morning and hanging out in the backyard in the afternoon. I just love not having to mess with putting 13 layers on my kids before we walk out the door.

Speaking of kids, I would like to give a shout out to Becky Liles who shared with me one of the best tips ever. Oliver was having a coughing fit in the middle of the night and I did just what Becky had told me to do, rub Vicks on his feet and put socks on over it. After about 10 minutes, the coughing totally stopped, just like it always does when I do this. So, thanks Becky for sharing this with me over a year ago!

Rachel, I dreamed last night that you had triplets. You should have seen your face.
