Crazy Weekend!

What a crazy and draining weekend this has been for my family. As I told you on my last post our new niece was born on Valentine's day. Josh and Cooper headed out on Friday to see her and left me here to care for Lily. She was so sick, two nights in a row her fever got up to 105. She is doing better now, but her cough still sounds horrible. I can't get her to eat anything and I have been offering everything from ice-cream to chocolate ( I wish I was more like her). Josh came home early today because he said Cooper is now sick. GROAN!! He woke up from his nap with 104 fever. I just want to pull my hair out!!! So now I will be stuck at our house all this next week with another sick child. Do I sound like I am having a pity party for myself, bring on the streamers and balloons. Here as promised are some pictures of the newest Harrel.

Josh said she was wide eyed most of the evening he saw her, she's so precious. Her thick black hair reminds me alot of Lily's hair when she was born. :)Cooper is constanly talking about bulls and cows. He loves to go to his Grandpa's house and his Uncle Joe's house because he gets to help them feed the cows and gather eggs. Then when he comes home he continues to ask when he will see the bulls again.
Cooper and his Uncle Joe have just finished gathering eggs together


Cooper's dream come true he got to help feed the baby calf "Wooly Bully"

My sick little guy, I had to take a picture of him to document that he is actually sitting still without being asleep. This never, ever happens at our house, he must be really sick. Please keep him in your prayers, hopefully his illness won't last as long as Lily's has.

Your niece is beautiful. Hope Coop gets better and we will keep you guys in our prayers.
Don't pull your hair out but I know how you feel if we don't get some outside weather I am going to pull my hair out!

Maddie is a little doll! I hope she doesn't continue to be wide awake all the time for her parents sake. Give Coop a kiss for me, poor little man! and tell him I love him.
