What a week!!

Let me just start out by saying that I hate RSV!! Especially when it's RSV times two, or I guess I should say times three, because I'm pretty sure I have it now too.
Carson and Avery started getting sick on Sunday on our drive home, then by Monday morning they both had bad coughs and were starting to sound croupy. Carson was working pretty hard to breathe and starting to make me nervous. I took them in Monday morning and sure enough they have RSV and croup. Their Dr. gave them some steriods and Carson a breathing treatment which seemed to help pretty quickly.
This week has been a pretty rough one. They are miserable, sleep deprived and just plain cranky!! It's been a while since I've had that feeling of, 'there's two of them and only one of me.' But this week I sure have, they both want to be held all the time, but they don't want to share me. It's so sad....I need a clone! They elbow and try to push each other away so they can be the only one being held. But I have gotten a lot of sweet cuddle time with each of them this week. Which, selfishly, is the only good thing about them being sick. They are so tired because they keep waking themselves up coughing. Poor babies, they just want to feel better. We are all exhausted!

Carson has become a little bit of a daddy's boy lately. I heard him in the hall whining and saying "DaDa" and I walked over to find him sitting by the garage door looking for Shane. It was so sad, but kinda sweet at the same time.
Avery loves her paci's (which she now calls, "pie"). She tries to hold as many as she can at the same time. Sweet girl!
On the up side, at least they waited until after Chirstmas to get sick. And at least they both have it at the same time so we only have to do this once. We are ready to be better and get out of this house!!
