Becca has recovered from her sickness; although we still are not completely certain what was wrong. Her lab reports didn't show a urinary infection, so it's possible it was a viral infection instead of a bacterial one, but she seemed to recover as soon as the antibiotics were started. So, both us and the doctor are still kind of scratching our heads wondering what really happened. Hopefully it's over and won't happen again.
The kids had their check-ups together since we updated. Becca weighed 20 lbs 7 oz and was 31 inches long. That's the 18th percentile for weight and the 72nd percentile for height. Hopefully, her weight is only down because she was so sick the week before, but we'll be watching that too. (According to this weigh-in and her one-year weigh-in, she has only gained 3 oz in three months.)
Thomas weighed 7 lbs 5 oz and was 20.25 in long. He is growing and developing well. He is a really easy baby; he is very good at eating when he's hungry and sleeping when he's tired. Becca was extremely difficult to nurse, so his success with it has been a pleasant surprise. He wakes up about every two hours at night, and usually wants to be awake from 6 to at least 7, but that's not so bad. Becca is dealing with the changes pretty well and seems to really like to "play" with him and "share" her toys. She has learned to climb on everything and we have had to start doing time-outs for getting on the chairs to "help" while Mommy is cooking on the hot stove. Most recently, she has learned that she can get into our food cupboards from the kitchen chairs.
Daniel is staying busy with school. He had the opportunity to substitute for some upper level classes and he really enjoyed it. He will be quitting at Sam's Club in two weeks, because it is not working out very well and we don't need the money since he is getting paid for teaching.
Caroline is busy adjusting to life with two babies, but things are going well. She is grading again this semester for two classes which keeps her extra busy, but she enjoys it.

We love you all,
Caroline, Daniel, Becca, and Thomas
