Stomach Flu

Christmas 2010 will be the year we all got the stomach flu. It started with Rosalie at 10pm Christmas Eve. We were worried about her, so I let her sleep on my chest instead of the crib. Several times through the night she would awaken, throw up, then her head would fall right back down, passed out. Thankfully, she was better for Christmas Day mass. But after Mass, the flu hit Mary and me.

It took some serious effort to rehydrate everyone, especially Rosalie, but we're all better.

Is it love or just "taking one for the team" when you let your 11 month old 'spray' on you and your clothes, rather than the floor, to minimize the mess?

Happy New Year!

I'm planning on cracking into the Champagne we never got to last year, since Mary was in labor.

Rosalie's First Snow Angel

We had a beautiful 8 inch snowfall in Champaign Friday night, so we took the tags off of Rosalie's snowsuit. Here are some photos of her first snow adventure:

We were very surprised she didn't eat the snow!
