this was the first time she willingly held my hand while we were out walking, normally she wants to walk independently OR be carried

Sym said my vintage typewriter made me a creep like Ezra on Pretty Little Liars so I typed up some notes & slid them under her door. she was not impressed.

How was your Mother’s Day? Mine was great JUST GREAT let me tell you. Gwen spiked a fever on Friday night and was sick all weekend with snot and sneezes. I’m sure Taylor would have let me sleep in on Sunday but Ms Babyface had other ideas, and getting all the crusted boogers off her face/out of her hair, taking her temperature and giving her Advil are so much easier as two-person operations. Happily it seemed to be a short-lived sickness and by Sunday evening the fever & sneezes were gone, and now only the boogers remain. This is especially good for Taylor since he is sick now as well.

In spite of the gross, cranky baby I had a pretty good weekend. Sym got me flowers and made me a card, actually two cards as Taylor hired her to make one from him & Gwen as well. On Sunday morning Taylor made brunch for everyone: scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, strawberry pancakes and crescent rolls. Afterwards we took Gwen for a walk and in the afternoon I forced Taylor and Sym to help me move some furniture around the house. I still haven’t finished building the new dressers we bought Easter weekend, how sad is that?
