Sorry for the absence but Rowan and I have been sick. I think we caught the flu! High temperatures, aches and pain, coughing, and the chills. No fun at all. When we first arrived in Portland Rowan had his first cold and he was such a little trooper. He was a little less impressed this time. Probably didn’t help that he was teething and now his two top front teeth have broken through the gum line. He is almost recovered, he has a dry nasty cough that is hanging on though. He seems quite exasperated at the end of his coughing spells and lets out quite the sigh, it is pretty cute!
