The babies have been getting so big. We cut their hair and that made them look older. Just the other day they were concerned that Jake was laying on the floor. It was cute to watch them. They kept looking at Jake to figure out what he was doing. Then when they figured out he was just playing they both jumped on him. It was cute.

We celebrated Jake's birthday last week. He got a bit sick the day before his birthday which made me a bit nervous but he ended up being alright. He had a little friend party on Saturday. They had pizza, played some games and did a treasure hunt. They had a lot of fun. I made him a giant cupcake for his party and the kids loved it.

Well we have now had 2 of the 3 March birthdays in our family. Jeff's was on the 1st and Zach's was yesterday on the 3rd. I think Jeff had a pretty good birthday. We went out as a family for dinner to McGraths fish house. It was perfect for the boys because they sold boiled and peel shrimp by the pound. Jake and Zach were in heaven. It seems crazy that for such picky eaters they would love that. Well anyway, they brought out this crazy fish hat and made Jeff wear it while we sang. The boys loved it.
I think he loved the cake as much as he would have loved the real thing. This was my first experience with cake fondant. Age and I made it and we had so much fun. We kept laughing just at the thought of his reaction at getting this instead of the real thing. Oh well such is life. Someone in this family has to be realistic. I have always done good at that.

Well we have had an interesting month. Alex has been sick and we just couldn't seem to get him better. He had a fever, no activity and for a 20 month old that is crazy. He threw up all the time and then just recently starting having trouble with his breathing. After 3 trips to the doctor we finally started him on breathing treatment. At first they didn't seem to help much but then after a few days of three times a day treatments, he started improving. I must say he did really well for having this mask strapped to his face. I was very impressed. He did much better at that then taking his medicine. That was a nightmare. He is now pretty much better, but we are the proud owners of a home nebulizer for future cases. How exciting is that.
