They Share Hugs, Valentines and Viruses

Any doubts we had about Claudia being a loving big sister (or even a big sister that wouldn't cut her baby brother in half, as she promised) have been layed to rest.   The girl loves to hold, hug, kiss and help out with baby brother.  She's very curious about the little man and the little man is very curious about her (when he isn't terrified of her).   There is a major hitch to this new friendship, though.  Our sweet Bop started coughing uncontrollably Sunday night.  She was running a fever and began having all sorts of puke and poop issues.   Although we limit her kisses to the top of Paddy's sweet head, he has also came down with this nasty cough, but otherwise is symptom free.   It's been difficult trying to keep both of them happy this week.  At one point, while I was consoling a screaming Paddy, a coughing and crying Claudia yelped out "I'm sick too, Mommy!"   Ouch.   Luckily, they have both been to the doctor and are both on the mend.  I'm watching Paddy nap here and just put a somewhat dazed Claudia down for her nap.   Hopefully by this weekend, they will both be feeling better! 

Here are some cuddly pics of Bop and her Paddy (pre-ickiness): 








Don't let the face confuse you... she's upset because she wanted to stay home instead of going to school.

Here is Paddy with the two Valentines his sister made him.  He really did look excited when she brought them to him. 

And I promise she had panties on in this picture. She's gotten in the habit of stripping down to nothing, screaming "I'm butt naked!", and running through the house.  I've heard from a few friends that this is "normal" and not to make a big deal out of it.  We just smile and say "yes, you are."   Hope Paddy doesn't get any big ideas.
