What's been going on here...

Everyone's sick in the O house. Sydney has the worst case of the cold, Alex is doing the best. Actually, so far Alex really isn't sick unless you count a little stuffy nose that started today. We've gone through many boxes of tissues the past few days-and only one or two have been used on the noses, the rest are purely for Sydney's enjoyment. Yes, it's still fun to take out all the tissues from the box. Although now she uses them for a bed for her babies and other fun things. Ahh Kleenex, another company stock we should probably invest in.

Other than that, the kids are doing great. Alex and Sydney have decided that taking naps at the same time would be a sanity saver for mommy and yes, it truly is. The kids take naps together for about 2-3 hours each day for the past week and a half or so. Heaven! I can get some stuff done or take a nap myself. Alex is sleeping better all the time which also helps in the sanity department.

Here are some pictures and a video from the past week...

This picture was taken while Mam-o and Pop-o were here, and somehow I missed the cuteness. Think these two have the same smile?
Surely CPS will be coming to my door shortly after seeing a picture of my newborn sitting in a Bumbo on the counter...I promise I was right there the whole time. Do you think Alex gets bored of all the pictures I take of him? The expression says it all.
Even better, my three year old feeding the newborn while both of them sit on the counter. And Sydney really does enjoy feeding her little brother, really. She has a cold and isn't feeling so hot in this picture.

And a video of Alex smiling! Ignore me making super annoying baby noises to get my child to smile again. Yes, I am one of THOSE moms! haha.

Way too cute! We bought a bumbo yesterday and she loves it! We've had it on the desk, the coffee table, and the kitchen counter so far -- of course, strictly supervised. He is getting so big and so handsome!

He is so cute and precious!!! I love the smile. I am glad to hear all is well up there. We are all sick as well with yucky colds. I just want to quit coughing!!! It looks like we will be up there the last week of June so we would love to see you and meet Alex.

They do have the same smile!!!! How precious!!! I'm so sorry everyone has been sick...I think it's just hitting every house that it can before the Spring! God bless and hope everyone is on the mend very soon!
