I'm sick of sick

It seems like everyone I talk to now either is sick or has a sick child, so needless to say it's been that way in our house too for the past 2 weeks. We've all been sick at some level, but we are mostly better now, except for Isabel. The poor thing has really gotten the worst of it. She's had a fever and a very sore throat since Sunday. It is so sad to see my baby so uncomfortable. She spent about two hours yesterday either whining or crying. She asks for water, then says she doesn't want it, then something else, and she refuses it too. The only thing she seems to really want is to watch Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, which we did 4 times yesterday.
I got very little sleep most nights this week. Last night Mike, being the wonderful husband he is, let me sleep and went to sleep with her downstairs so he could take care of her every time she woke up. I slept well, no, really well. I guess I really needed it.
She seems to be doing better today. Her fever wasn't as high, and she even played a little instead of just watching tv. Hopefully she will be better soon.
Here is a little video to remind me how cute she is (especially with her sister) when she is not sick and whining all the time. I know this sounds heartless, but it is hard to think she is adorable when to poor thing is so miserable. I love my little girls, and it breaks my heart to see them sick. Well, here's for better times!

Pra vc Debora!

I wasn't planning on posting tonight, but I know it makes Debbie happy when I post new pictures, so these ones are for you Drebs.



There's Isabel and Sophia playing after dinner (Sophia is sporting a bread pudding case hat - very papal)



Does this hat make me look fat?



And it couldn't really be Sophia if there was no spit up (nice stream, huh?!)



As you can see, we are really trying to go green here at the Wilson household - we only wear reciclable hats.



Isabel and her money mailer envelope hat (it will be a must next season, mark my words).

We love you Debs! (manda um bjo pro meu irmaozinho - eu sei que ele num gosta de beijo de irma, mas quando eh vc que da ele gosta!)

Happy Halloween!

Isabel loved Halloween this year! I had no idea she would enjoy the whole costume thing and trick or treating so much, I thought she was too young, buy boy was I wrong!
First of all, she absolutely loved her costume. Every time she puts it on, she goes in front of the mirror and starts posing and twirling, it's so cute. She is really into Mickey's Clubhouse, and anything princess, so being Minnie Mouse meant not only dressing like one of her favorite characters, but also being a princess (the fact that the costume was pink and had glitter, made it a princess costume too). She called herself 'Princess Minnie House'. My in laws came over as she was getting dressed, and got to see all the twirling and dancing.
I went trick or treating with Sophia and Isabel while it was still light and not so cold outside. I loved her soft little knocks on people's doors followed by a shy 'Treeeat' (we never managed to get her to say 'trick or treat' together). She thought it was great people were putting candy in her little bag. She would then say 'thek you' and run to the next house. She also really enjoyed the pumpkins around the neighborhood. Every time she saw one, she would yell 'Bucket!' (it took me a couple of times to realize she was saying pumpkin). I loved her reaction to other kids costumes. When she saw a dinosaur or a little monster she would say 'scarry!', and any girl with a shiny dress was "oh, princess!'.
When it got dark we came back home so Sophia could eat, but Isabel went right back outside with Mike to go trick or treating some more. After trick or treating with dad, we went to my parents' house to show off our Princess Minnie House and our little Peapod.
I have to say, Halloween is a lot more fun when you have kids, I realy enjoyed it this year because of them! (by the way, it's Monday morning now. Isabel got out of her pajamas this morning and straight into her costume again, ears and all!)
