Our household is mostly well now. My hubby and Sprout have a bit of a lingering cough. I’ve managed to get a sore throat and a bit head congestion through all of this, but have held up quite well.
I measured Aidan and he is a full 2″ taller than he was when he turned 2. [...]
I hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as we are!
