Will, Dean and I all got the flu. Will got it first, and I could tell my body was trying to fight it off. I was trying the best I could to stay well, but after one night of no sleep from being up all night with sick Will and a hungry baby I was down for the count. It's so tough being a sick mom, especially when your child is sick as well! Dean was a great help though, getting up with Will when his coughing woke him up countless times a night. I knew it was only a matter of time before Dean got it too. Which he did. I thank the Lord we at least weren't sick at the same time! Sam seems to have escaped it, having only gotten a little bit of a cough and runny nose.
Will is FINALLY starting to talk more, and it is so much fun! He is quite a smart little boy too. His Grandma Eaton loves doing "school work" with him. Puzzles, picture matching, shape boxes and learning his numbers. She is very impressed with him! I finally brought up his potty seat from the basement, with the intent of working on potty training. So far, he hasn't used it for anything other then as a toy to push around the house.
Sam had his 2 month check up yesterday, and is looking great! He is in the 60% for both height (23 inches or so) and weight (12lbs). The doctor was amazed at what a strong core he has too! He has become very smiley and talkative this past week, and is a joy to be around.

My apologies that this post as turned out to be quite boring (aside from the cute picture of Sam). I find that, every now and then, this blog is a great way to keep track of simple family moments that otherwise would be forgotten.
