Welcome March! Come on Springtime weather!!

Okay, so it's been a while since we've posted and here it is March already!
We've had a busy month. As you've read in the last blog entry, the kids were sick. Turns out they both had a virus-hand, mouth, foot-YUK!! Jenna turned up with symptoms first. She had fever and tons of red spots/rash ALL over. Some appeared to be chicken pox at first. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. Blake started showing symptoms about two days later. With him though, he had higher fever and much fewer spots. They both had sores and blisters in their mouths and throats. Poor things were miserable. Blake's throat sores were so bad, he just cried and fussed when he tried to eat. I'm guessing they contracted this virus from our visit to the play gym. :( Jenna's lasted for about five days and Blake's lasted a bit longer. Once she felt better, Blake was about three days later in getting over his. However, he experienced congestion and icky runny nose for several days after. Jenna had a bit of that too. While they were sick, they didn't sleep well at all. They were so miserable and only found comfort in our arms, especially when they tried to sleep. Needless to say we got in TONS of snuggle time. It took quite a while to get the kids back to sleeping through the night. They got used to sleeping with one of us so that was yet another challenge to overcome (for them and for mommy). Is it hard having twins? My answer is it's only hard when they are both sick at the same time. THANKFULLY, Jason was able to stay home the entire week to help me. Both kids demanded comfort and attention 24/7. I am not sure how I would have kept it togehter if iw as on my own on this one. I'm glad they are well and back to their happy selves.
