Well I fell off the blogging roll because I got sick. Last Friday morning I woke up with Mastitis ( if you don't already know what this is you can look it up.) Well it has flu like symptoms. I had high fever and I was throwing up. It was awful!! I was so sad because I wasn't able to do all that I wanted to do with the girls for Halloween. I had planned on waking up and putting the girls hair in sponge rollers for the first time. It was so frustrating because there was no way that I could take them trick r treating or to our old churches trunk r treat. Dustin came home and helped me with the girls. I was feeling better until Saturday night I started to feel a cold sore coming on. Well by Sunday morning I woke up with cold sores all over my lips and the inside of my mouth. Well since then I barely even want to go out into public. We did go to school on Tuesday & Thursday but not to much activity this week.

I need to take some pictures of the girls. They love school and are both doing great in their classes. They're in different classes which I wasn't sure about, but has been great. They are both very close to learning to read. I am so proud of them. They are also both writing all their numbers and letters, needless to say they don't write them exactly right. Today Taylor counted on her fingers to 9 and showed me her 9 fingers. Then Cameron told me that was 5 & 4. So they said 5 & 4 makes 9. I mean come on my girls are so stinkin smart. I realized the other day that I should take a picture of their names that they've written. Taylor will sit down and write everyone in our families names.

Peyton is growing like a weed. She is 6 months old an is so close to crawling. She can sit up for the most part. I still typically put something behind her because on a couple of occasions she toppled over. She struggled a little bit with the time change. She is wanting to still wake up an hour earlier. Yesterday was better so I'm hoping she's adapting. At home she sticks to a schedule very well she takes a morning nap between 9:30 & 10 and sleeps for 2 hours. Then naps again from 2-4. She might fall asleep for a short nap, but not always. On the other hand on school days she struggles with naps. She usually takes a 30 min. nap in the morning and 30 min. to an hour nap in the afternoon. Then comes home and takes an hour nap in the evening. Then she is semi fussy the rest of the evening. Peyton is my sweet baby. I snuggle and love on her continuously throughout the day. Taylor is also obsessed with Peyton. She loves to feed her, although most of the food ends up on the bib. Peyton originally didn't do well with baby food, but now loves it. She also loves real food. She loves crackers, crust to my pizza, and a banana.

OK this was a short post that turned into a long one.

I am so sorry you have been sick. It sounds like no fun. And i think we should do something about the time change. Whoever decided to have it didn't have kids.

Oh the dreaded Mastitis. I have never been sicker than when I got it right around the time I was starting to ween Rylie. I actually ended up in the ER because I was so dehydrated from throwing up and my fever was so high. I know how awful you must have felt and how dissapointed you must have been about Halloween. I hope you are feeling better now!
