I had meant to post these pictures during the week last week but if you have been following me on my various social media outlets, you know that I have been dealing with a very sick toddler. It all started on Wednesday night and hasn't let up since. Her fever has been going up and down from around 100 degrees all the way up to 104. She looks like crap. I feel so bad for her but we just have to let the nasty virus run it's course. Thankfully my husband and I have been able to steer clear of it so far. I'm just hoping that it isn't laying dormant in my body at this moment just waiting to show it's ugly face. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Okay so on with the show. What I really wanted to talk about in this post is how great I think cousins are. Aubrey has three cousins- Angelia, Nick and Nathan. While Aubs loves them all, she particularly adores Nathan and I am pretty sure the feeling is mutual. They are only 15 months apart so now that Aubs has reached full blown toddler stage they are very much on the same level. It's so awesome to see them play and interact together.
I think that having lots of cousins is kind of dying out. What I mean by that is in general people are having smaller families these days and smaller families means less aunts and uncles and then less cousins. Also people don't hang around were they grew up as much anymore so cousins many times grow up states away from each other. I think that it is kind of sad because I love that Aubs has cousins, just as I loved having cousins when I was little. I am also super sad that my new little one won't have any cousins around her age to play with. I'm pretty sure she will be the baby of the family. She will be just fine but Nick and Lia are so close and now Nate and Aubs that I wish baby girl had a little cousin playmate too.
***These photos were all taken last weekend- we couldn't take sicky out in public or around other littles this weekend***
And then Aubs decided to take a swim with her dress on.....
...at least it got all of the ice pop stains out.
