2 YEARS & 8 MONTHS - 24 March 2013

After about 5 weeks of (mainly Laia) illness in the house, it looks like we're finally all more or less healthy again. I guess I shouldn't complain about non-stop colds with runny noses and sneezing, there's still snow outside and we have experienced real illness for so long that colds are like hick-ups at the moment. We've been through 24-hours a day coughing from both girls, meaning nobody slept at any time for what seems like months but was probably more like 2 weeks. Then Laia got an ear infection, when she was over that she got a fever, and as soon as that was gone she got a stomach bug. Poor thing didn't eat for 5 days and is so skinny - she was already thin before all this illness, there's no fat on her little body anymore.
But last night we slept through the night for the first time in months! And this morning Laia had a yoghurt followed by 3 bowls of cereal, washed down with 2 big cups of fruit juice. I was sooo relieved to see her eat and drink again! And it's darn good timing, since I'll be a single mom for the next week or so, Albert is in Barcelona saying goodbye to his dad. Sad! I really wanted to be there as well, but since nobody knows exactly when it will happen, we can't afford plane tickets for all 4 of us at the moment, and we can't leave Liva and Laia here for an unknown amount of time while we're in Barcelona, I'm here with the girls and Albert has flown down on his own.
Unfortunately it's right around Easter, where it would have been nice to all be together for some time off. Liva and Laia's daycare is closed for a week, so we have to pay Camila for 2 days and my mom will take Liva & Laia one day. Besides that, it's up to me to keep the girls entertained. Luckily they've been really sweet the past couple of days, and today, our first day alone, has been great so far. We had a lovely morning feeding ducks, playing at both indoor and outdoor playgrounds, and enjoying the sun which we hadn't seen in days!

2 YEARS & 8 MONTHS - 10 March 2013

I'm not writing a lot, I would really like to, but just can't find the motivation or the time. Liva and Laia have had a cold and a cough for what seems like months now, Laia has been on antibiotics for a week because of her cough, she wakes up 4-5 times during the night coughing, the antibiotics don't seem to have worked at all, and we are all sooooo tired. Last night she "only" woke up 3 times, hopefully it's a sign that things are getting better. Fingers crossed! :)
Liva and Laia are now 32 months and can do so many things. Since I'm almost 2 weeks late describing what they can do, I'll wait until next month. But I realized I've been complaining quite a bit lately about how difficult life is, I'm forgetting to mention that there are fun moments as well. I've decided to make up for that by adding proof! :)

Always remember the good times! No matter how hard times are for whatever reason, Liva and Laia always make me happy - even on the worst of days!
