A new addition to the family

We have a new addition to our family......
...his name is Kobe We found him at the shelter, looking a little sad,

Marcelina is the first to hold him at the shelter before we bring him home.

Much better....holding a clean Kobe! Kobe & his leopard, we got it in hopes he'd cuddle with it & not miss his brothers and sisters too much :(
He also likes toys that don't belong to him!

Angelina can't get enough of him.....




Poor guy, sometimes I have to rescue him from her!

Except for all the pink, I'm pretty sure he is feeling right at home!

Boogery weekend!

So it figures that as soon as I go back to work Angelina comes down with the sniffles and cough. That was last Friday. Luckily daddy did a good job with the Tylenol and humdifier. She kept her sats up, and she mostly coughed at night. Now its just the occasional stuffy nose. Marcelina had had a bad cough but thats pretty much gone away. Lil Alex you can tell doesn't feel super good, but he doesn't complain. He does though get more cuddly. What i don't get is how the stuffiness doesn't keep him from talking??? How can a little boy talk so much? I don't get it. My hubby came down with it too, but he doesn't complain much (anymore), his head cold also seems to be resolving.
This Friday I finally came down with a fever and was not feeling well at all. I ended up not working my 2 usual days, and staying home with all the sick monkies ;)
Some pictures and videos from the last few weeks:
I don't get it- how & why does so much food end up on the floor???

Is my flower too small? ;)Before I went back to work Alex wanted us to go out and eat...the kids are usually well behaved at restaurants but its a bit tiring for me because for some reason they seem to say "Mom, Mommy" a whole lot more! Anyhow I was tired and not too crazy about going. I'm glad we did, we had a good time and kids cracked me up!
