Sick and tired of being...sick and tired

Seriously, we've been too sick around this house for too long! I've been sick for over two weeks...and not just a little but the full blown cough, head going to explode, sore throat type of thing. I finally went to the doctor yesterday and begged for something - anything, but it turns out this stupid thing is viral, so I've just got to tough it out. But man this sucks. And then to make it worse, Hailey's been a total pill lately. I don't know whether she's getting what I have, or she's teething or she just want to make my life more miserable, either way, she'd better get back to the sleeping through the night business quick!

Anyway, a lot has happened in the last month. Christmas mostly!! We had a fun Christmas, we started it out at my parents on Christmas eve and then drove to Raymond late that night to wake up there with Ben's family for Christmas day. BUSY. We slept in the same room as Hailey while we were there - and that was a disaster. When you're not used to sharing a room with your baby it makes for a rough night. Seriously, every noise she made was magnified a million times and I could NOT sleep!! But we made it through and we had a fun time anyway (I think the buttermilk syrup definitely made up for not sleeping. We ate some yummy food... and opened lots of presents.

Anyway, here are some pics of the last month:

It's always fun when a really bad picture ends up looking kind of cool

Ooooh, presents, shiny presents

Sarah Helping Hailey open her first present...someone looooves paper

Ben and I and Hailey in Raymond (that's me in my 'no makeup, only got 4 hours of sleep' glory)

All the cousins on the Woodruff side in their new pj's that grandma made...can you tell she's used to only boy grandkids?

And on to non Christmas news, we started solids! YAY!!! Hailey seems to really like this solid food business. We started with sweet potatoes - an instant hit. And so far that and peas are the only things she actually likes. Rice cereal? Blech. Avocado? Double Blech. Sweet potato? Mmmmmm.

Oh and at the same time, look at what this kid learned out to do? impressive? I think so!

And finally, we were trying to figure out why this baby kept having so many diaper blowouts...serious blow outs. Well we figured it out:
Time for a new diaper

Oh - and just cause I don't think you'll ever see a cuter droolier baby:

I love the pic of the diaper!! That is so funny! Sorry about your sickness - I just heard from another friend who's kid has strep, so that must be going around too. So many weird plagues this year. Not comforting, I'm sure, but misery loves company, etc..?
