Let me give a quick example of how amazing these people are. Greg left for Florida to help them plant for 10-14 days and my neighbor, who has 2 year old twins and is days from popping out her next baby, brings me dinner multiple times and invites us over for dinner as well. Really? REALLY?! I just kept thinking, and telling her, I should be the one bringing your family dinner! However, without Greg here, I'll be honest, I have not cooked a single thing aside from a grocery bag full of sweet potatoes that I cooked up for Addie's food, to freeze, and I made a couple loaves of sweet potato bread with it. But that is it. So here I am, being the epitome of a slacker, and my almost-ready-to-pop neighbor who, let me remind you, has TWINS, is cooking and bringing me dinner.
Speaking of those twins, they are freakin adorable. Their names are Chad and Jillian, the latter of the two they refer to as Jillie. These two are obsessed with babies, especially Addie. When Chad sees her he can't stop hugging her and trying to touch her eye...not so thrilled with the second move. And Jillie? She repeatedly says, "put baby down" so she can play with her.

So now here I sit, Addie down for a nap, me gargling salt water, sipping hot tea, barely able to swallow, and being sicker than a dog. And Addie? She is snoughing, has a runny nose, runny eyes, and I just wonder if she is as sick as me. Uh huh, you read that right, she is doing a combination of sneezing and coughing at the same time. (Any royalties from the use of the word I just created can be sent directly to me. Thank you.) I am just praying that her snoughing and runny nose doesn't turn into a full-out sicker than a dog baby. It's a tough price to pay for your first kiss.
