“Lots of puke, scary high fevers, coughing and a concussion to top it all off,” the fashion designer, 39, captioned a Wednesday, November 13, Instagram post. “Maxi and Ace are resilient troopers. Now we need some sleep. Eric and I are so relieved they are happy and healthy now.”

When the little ones aren’t under the weather, the Texas native’s kids love hanging out with their cousinsAshlee Simpson’s 10-year-old son, Bronx, and 4-year-old daughter, Jagger.

“Maxwell looks out for [Jagger],” Ashlee’s husband, Evan Ross, told Us Weekly exclusively earlier this month. “She’s, like, the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. The way she takes care of Jagger, holds her for hours, I’m like, ‘How strong are you?’ Also, she just tells her great advice and shows her love when she gets upset. She’s the sweetest. … Definitely a sister bond.”

The “Pieces of Me” singer, 35, agreed, adding, “They have so much fun together. She’s a great big cousin.”

And when it comes to baby Birdie, she has given Jagger high hopes for a younger brother or sister. “She’s been wanting a [sibling],” Ashlee told Us at the time. “She has, like, names picked out and everything. She wants triplets! I’m like, ‘Oh wow! That’s a lot of babies.’ She wants a boy and two girls.”
