During DH's sick time, Angus was by his side the entire time. He'd come down to eat, then he'd head back up to our bedroom and sleep right next to T. Pets know. When I went into labor with baby girl, Levi was my sentry. Be good to your animals. This is a lesson we are trying to teach butters, but it's not going so well!

Someone has been sick nearly every week and it seems like bad things just keep happening. Look at the eyes on that very unhappy baby. Don't worry, she's feeling better. She even manages to smile through her watery eyes and runny nose. It's impossibly cute.
We went to three birthday parties this month, including 2 Princess Parties. Butters loves cake. It's his favorite part.
One party was at Jump Planet, here it is, my self deprecating photo, also known as, I'm Never Wearing That Shirt Again! I sustained a small injury-a skinned elbow. But, I never complain. (Yeah right, Mrs. Bennet!) I had red eye and I tried to process it out, making me look a bit more bug-eyed than I really do.
The good news: March is just around the corner, as announced by my favorite seasonal flavor of B&J, Dublin Mudslide. There it is, right next to some frozen breast milk in my fridge, should I ever get the chance to go see a movie again! But, I never complain.

The emergency room was packed with un-insured people, leaving overworked doctors and a very stressful experience. I'm looking forward to a new President who can fix our healthcare system, then my parents could retire with fewer worries also.
I'm almost up to my 100th blog post, I think I might have a contest so be ready!

When Butters was born, during the first Bush administration, he had a $30,000 debt to pay for this country. When Baby Girl was born, during the second, the number has nearly tripled! I'm hoping my grandkids don't have to pay down a national dept. I was born with more rights than I have today, but these are all things that we can win back. What upsets me the most are the lives that have been lost and the damage done to the environment that can't be reversed, the couples who should have been allowed to marry, but didn't the chance. Okay, I'm climbing down from my soapbox.
Speaking of kids, here is are my favorite photos of today. Butters likes to tell a fib and then say, "That's so funny." Like, "You're a doornob, that's so funny!" This is the face he makes when he says it!
Baby Girl is getting her teeth still, but she continues to smile all the time. She is just so kissable, I can't keep my hands off her, which is good because at night she doesn't want to be put down! Can you see the teeth?
Okay, if you are still reading and I haven't pissed you off yet, then you can handle this next question. I have a friend who is very supportive of my knitting, she actually told me that if I knitted a poop she would display it/wear it proudly. So, I thought, I'll make her a pair of socks. Then I found out about a book of naughty knitting patterns and I figured, who better to make a certain type of knitted cozy for a certain type of..say special friend, than for this person, who could love it! So, I'll take a straw poll, a pair of usable socks or a silly cozy for a special friend?

Well, we were the small per cent of kids who break out with pox as a RESULT of the vaccine. And, husband has a fever, sore throat and feels like crap. We are home bound for about 2 weeks. Keep your fingers crossed that the baby stays healthy and that it's something else T has!
This is why he has red paint in his hair in the above photo, we stamped today with paint and cookie cutters. Butters keeps telling me, "I don't like chicken pops. Take them off." He's not too bad off, only about 5 spots, it's not as bad as it could be.
