Lots of snuggling around here, it lasts a couple minutes before Rowan starts yelling, "Much!!" Poor Saoirse.

As they have been on so many other occasions, Grandma and Grandpa were a huge help this week. They took us in, and entertained Rowan while Saoirse got extra attention for being sick.
Saoirse and Rowan enjoyed seeing the lake, and riding on Grandpa's boat.
And here they are in their new big girl beds at Grandma's. Too cute.

Well...my early optimism was somewhat unwarranted. On the 2nd night Chris was home, both girls woke up around midnight and I took them back to bed. No one slept much after that. The next day was not fun. We were all very tired and cranky. I was hoping for a better night, since they were tired out, but no such luck. At some point during the night, I decided to take Saoirse to the dr. in the morning, because she felt hot.

Most of the day today went pretty smoothly. It rained all morning, which is pretty normal around here for the last month. So we were stuck inside again. After breakfast we read books, drove some cars around, diapered a dozen baby dolls or so, discussed where Daddy was several million times, and played with some Playdoh.
After Rowan woke up, we hit the mall. There were a couple things I needed, and we all needed to get out of the house. While we were there, we had dinner out. The girls were really good, actually. And Rowan ordered something in a restaurant for the first time. When the waitress came around at the beginning, she held out the sippy cup to her and asked for "lemon," which means lemonade. She's catching on to this restaurant thing.
Bedtime was not smooth. Rowan melted down screaming and asking for Daddy. No amount of explanation was working. Getting her in her bed seemed impossible. So both girls are sleeping in Mommy's bed right now, and it wasn't easy getting them to sleep there, even. Let's hope they sleep, at least. For now, we all miss Chris.
