Pox Log: Day 4?????

I hadn't been outside since Saturday night. Time is passing quickly, and not. Joshua had a harder day...but who wouldn't looking like this?

Leah is not dealing well at all. She's very dramatic and it is tiring for us all. Poor thing. Tomorrow will be a harder day for her, hope we all survive. Priscilla isn't bothered at all, THANK YOU JESUS. She has a light case and they are only on her head and bottom. Hannah just barely has a few showing up now. We'll see how hers goes.

Since no one really wants to hear my every moment of feeling about chicken pox, I'll post some long over due pics instead. For anyone with an iPhone. I post a picture a day on Instagram for Priscilla.

I do have to give photo credit to my amazing friend Shannon at Her work is AMAZING and I am lucky enough to call her sister in Christ and FRIEND!

Down with the Pox

Long time I know, I've thought of posting, but haven't found time to sit and do least not when my eyes will stay open long enough to do it. But now I have the perfect opportunity. Joshua has chicken pox, finally! We went to our fourth chicken pox party two weeks ago and this time, finally, one of my kids picked it up. He's had spots for three days now and is doing great! He hasn't really been bothered too much at all. We are just hanging out, watching a ton of tv and relaxing. Kind of enjoying the mandatory rest period. I'm really hoping the girls get it as well.

Priscilla is great too. She's almost 5 months and is the most joyful, easiest baby ever. She started sleeping through the night at 5 weeks and has ever since. I don't know how I got a baby this easy this time, but I am loving it! She rolls around everywhere but isn't trying to crawl yet. Nurses like a champ. Loves people. But the most special thing in her life is her big brother. They have the sweetest, most special bond I've ever seen. It just makes my Momma heart so happy. He would rather hold her than do anything in the world and when she falls asleep on him, he just beams!

Hannah is growing so big as well. She is pretty sure that she should be doing anything her siblings do. She can be a bit of a challenge at times but that is mainly because I don't always give her the attention she wants. Schooling two and a baby makes her a back seat sometimes. She amazes me though because she will just go off and play by herself for hours sometimes. I think she is a less social temperament than her older two siblings.

Leah is reading. It is a slower process than with her brother, but everything about her is different from her brother. She's fun, spunky and a servant hearted beauty. And I do mean beauty. We get stopped regularly by people to comment on how pretty she is. Thankfully, it isn't something she notices yet. She's my second Mama around here and just loves helping, especially cleaning. I'm ok with that. ;-)

I'm doing good. Trying to figure out how to balance everything required of me. Don't know if that is even a possibility. Something always gets left undone....I usually choose that to be housework,lol. Thankfully, my hubby doesn't mind at all. Every month that Stinks gets older, gets a bit easier. Such a short time, I'm enjoying it. :-)
