Yesterday I was sick. It is terrible to be the Mommy and be sick. The Mommy does not get a break. Oh, well. I am better today. We are planning on going to Texas for the weekend for a family reunion. So, I have lots of packing and cleaning to do.

Now the girls are all better. Daddy however was sick yesterday. He had a fever but nothing else. Today he is almost back to normal.

Leia and I had fun planting beans, lettuce and marigolds in the new garden. We had put some beans in a jar with a wet paper towel and they grew about 6 inches tall in a week. We put those in the ground with more bean seeds. She really enjoyed looking at the beans each day to see how much they had grown.

Chloe has had a hard time taking naps lately. It is hard to know what to do when a baby can't tell you what is wrong. I think she is just requiring less sleep and wants to be up playing with Leia. She watches every move her big sister makes. She talks to Leia more than she talks to me.

Leia had a fever all day Sunday. We would give her Tylenol and as soon as it wore off the fever was back. She was acting as her usual self, so I wasn't too worried. Today she was fine.

Chloe has been growing. She can roll over from her stomach to her back but not vice versa. Since she sleeps on her stomach, if she rolls over she can not roll back. So, she will fuss until someone comes and flips her back over.

We have finally started to work on our garden. I have been pulling weeds. Tomorrow a friend is coming over to till for us and hopefully I can plant some seeds or plants tomorrow.
