We are so bummed, Howie and Eleanor's Baker cousins have become sick with hand foot and mouth disease. The boy that Jenny babysits broke out with it, and then sure enough Evelynn got it too, poor little sweet girl. Evelynn's cousin, Maely, also got it. A few days later Henry started showing the symptoms too. Sadness.
Research and experience indicates this disease spreads like room-temperature butter, even through adults. So we sadly have to quarantine our little newborn from all Baker-side family. Boo!!! We're really bummed and really want to see our family, but such is life. We're probably extra paranoid, but just don't want to take any chances.
