On Saturday, my parents came up to celebrate my ......um.....

Sunday was my real birthday, and there was no sleeping in for this tired, weary birthday mamma - it was another ski day, so it was up bright and early, and let me tell you, I am not so bright at 615 in the morning! We headed up to Sunday River for the day with friends and had lots of fun! Once again, we had tired little kiddos at the end of the day. Overall, it was an awesome birthday! We left Clara with Mairead's preschool teachers daughter (got that?). She did really great, except for the fact that she woke up with a bad cough and fever....I guess there are more fun times to come in the Ferrie household. When I got home all Clara did was cough, at first, I thought she had or was getting the croup, but thankfully it wasn't...she was up pretty much the entire night. I felt so helpless, I didn't know what more I could do for her. I hate that feeling. I am just praying it isn't RSV.
Being pregnant. Skiing all day. And up all night with a fussy, sick 16 month old is not fun. I was tired. And when I woke up this morning, I felt like I was hit by a huge ass freight train. I hate when my babies are sick, and thankfully, we have been so lucky to not have had many nights like those in our parenting history, but nonetheless, it still sucks!

It was tough to get into the "Valentines Day" spirit with the girls, but I tried to rally! We showered, and they dressed themselves in red dresses and we headed to the local grocery store to pick out things for a special Valentines dinner for daddy. Poor Clara was out of it, I felt like a horrible mamma bringing her out of the house, you could just tell she felt miserable.

Once daddy came home, we cooked steamers (our girls LOVE them), cheese fondue and bread, then Kevin grilled filet mignon, and afterwards we finished off with some chocolate fondue with strawberries and graham crackers.....oh and you can't forget a glass of red wine for me and Kev and some sparkling pink lemonade for the girls! Overall, it was a nice, quiet Valentines day...

Not only was today Valentines day, it was a huge milestone for our little prince! 28 weeks! I am still in denial that my cerclage will be taken out in about 8 weeks! SCARY, SCARY! Looking forward to meeting this little man!
