Rachel seems to have rallied yet again. She drank 120mls last night (still roughly half of her 'normal' feed). She is still quite weak, no smiles yet but her eyes look much brighter. We tried the dropper idea for awhile but she kept pushing it away. And Rachel has never been the indecisive kind, so back to the bottle we went.
It is Dave and my 9th year anniversary today!! Dave made waffles for me this morning and put them on a beautiful, new set of dishes!!! Ethan was so funny last night. After repeatedly telling him not to tell mommy the secret, he said...'ok, ok,ok!!(in exasperation)...but mommy...(whispering now)..can I have some of the waffles too?" oh that boy cracks us up! Then after our waffles, Abigail started crying because she hadn't been to our wedding and she wanted to know what it was like. So, we re-enacted it in the living room. (the very short version). Abigail was the flower girl and Ethan was the ring bearer. That was quite fun.
We are taking turns having naps today. Both of us feeling under the weather. I have had some bad vertigo issues for the past three days. My mom gets this alot, usually in spring. (inner ear problem) so I'm wondering if that's it. It's driving me a bit crazy actually. My eyes are closed and I'm lying still and it still feels like the whole room is spinning. Dave might have the flu - blech! I have this scrapbook that docouments what we did each anniversary day. This year, I may just put the title "in good and bad" and take a picture of us looking really haggard with thermometers hanging out of our mouths or something. Forget trying to dress up this year - this is us, world. We love each other. And this love is good! The real stuff. I am so blessed. We're hoping to go out for supper tonight though!! Friends are taking our two older kids for the evening!
