Last year we didn’t travel to New York for Easter, since Kate was massively pregnant with YOU. But this year, we resumed the tradition. You apparently haven’t gotten the memo that it’s spring and time to shed all the winter illnesses, because you were sick again in New York. That was some colorful snot coming out of you!

Jimmy, this picture was taken at one of our Sunday family brunches. This was taken at Grammy and Pop-Pop’s house. I’d like to say that you love these occasional get-togethers, but the truth is you are very mommy-centric. If an aunt, uncle, or grandparent tries to give you love and hold you, you scream or fuss at them until they give you back to your mommy.

You’ve decided that you need to recover from the winter of illness after illness. Lots of naps! The only problem is they are typically of this variety – where you’re sleeping ON somebody.

Another week, another antibiotic. This one seems to be doing the trick. And bonus: no hives.

That didn’t take long. We’re back on yet another dose of antibiotics, and this one has managed to give you wicked hives. So yeah, after some drama we took you off of that and the doctor has you on YET ANOTHER one. One more ear infection and it’s an ENT consultation and TUBES for you. So don’t do that, mkay?

Also, we can get you to make this fun fishy face. Not on demand, but frequently enough to get a nice picture of it! This picture was taken a day or so before the hives kicked in. Lucky you!

No illness to report this week (although you’re still on antibiotics)! There’s a second tooth making it’s way in, though! Also, it’s March, but it still feels like winter. And we’re pretty well done with winter.

Another week. Another ear infection. What is it with you, kid?

It’s February and you still can’t shake the little illnesses. After your virus, you got an ear infection which has just about run it’s course (hopefully). We double-tortured you by sleep training you (finally!), so you’re sleeping most of the night in your own bed and letting your parents get some much needed shuteye.
