 I remember when Jayden was three or so, I took her picture and she started posing for me. Quite dramatically, if I remember correctly.  Jacob has reached the age where he also poses. It's kind of awesome.
 Chris took this one of us. I love it.
More silly posing.

We've been sick for about two weeks now and I'm hoping that we are all on the mend now. Jacob got sick, then I did, then Elise, then Jacob again, then Elise. Again. She still has a cough and quite the snotty nose but the fever is gone and she's able to sleep at night again.  She's night weaned herself for the past three nights, we'll see if it sticks. The other night, Chris got up with her at 4 AM, and she allowed him to lay with her and let her stick her fingers in his eyes and pull his hair. I got to sleep. For the first time ever, I think. Up until now, both Jacob and Elise needed to be nursed back to sleep until they were weaned, for the most part. If Chris didn't sleep like the dead, I'd expect him to do a lot more in the middle of the night. However, I honestly think he might sleep walk and terrible things could happen.

I remain very thankful that Elise hasn't figured out crawling, except of the backwards variety. More free time for me! But then she gets on her hands and knees and gets stuck, so not really. Motherhood is a lot of work, friends.

I'll try to get back and post some crafty things I've done. I sent off three projects without taking any photos! This is what happens when you procrastinate and then have to rush. No photographic evidence.
