Sticky & Sweet…

No, I’m not referring to Nicholas’ hands after he’s done eating a meal. 

It’s the title of Madonna’s latest tour, and I’m going to see her when she’s in Detroit!

When the tickets went on sale, I mentioned to Nick that she was coming and so he said, "see if you can […]

Updates on NBK, the new pregnancy, etc…

So…I haven’t updated in a few days.  We’ve been pretty busy.

Nicholas’ B-Day was a big success of course.  So as soon as we passed his first year, it was on to worry about other things.  Specifically, our new pregnancy and my cerclage placement.

Since all was well at my NT scan last Monday, […]

Surprise! Expecting #4

So…Nick and I brought home a souvenir from Maui!  We weren’t expecting that to happen, but…we’re very happy now that we’re over the initial shock!

I’ve started to give Nicholas formula now (I’m sad about that) b/c pregnancy can REALLY affect your supply when you’re nursing, so…he gets one bottle of formula a day, […]

We’re back!

We’re home!  We arrived home from Maui yesterday afternoon.  Traffic getting home wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be, thanks to us avoiding I-275N and Pfizer being closed in AA – US-23 will never be the same, now.

We had a wonderful time and Nicholas is such a good little traveler!

When […]

Aloha from Maui!


Maui sure does bring out the best in Nicholas!  We arrived LATE on Nicholas’ first Fourth of July, so we missed seeing the fireworks.  He’ll enjoy them more, next year, right?

I noticed first thing Saturday morning that something was ‘different’ about him, so, I peeked in his mouth and guess what?  He […]

Leaving for Maui…tomorrow!

So, we’re leaving tomorrow morning (well, technically we take off in the PM but…we have to leave our house early) and I can hardly believe the time has come!

I’ve planned, and planned, and planned some more for this trip (as most of you know, I AM a compulsive list-maker).

We’ve tried to be […]

Well, it’s official!

My last day of work with OAI will be June 26, 2008. 

Nick and I have been doing some talking over the last several weeks.  We’ve had some changes in our life that have allowed us to seriously consider me staying home with Nicholas. 

So, at least for now, I will be […]

June 2008 ALREADY???

Wow!  Today, Nicholas is 8 and a half months old.  I can hardly believe it!  Last year, at this time, I was about 22-24w pg with him.  I was about as big with Nicholas at that time as I was with the girls when we lost them.

Let’s see…I need to do some major […]

It’s been a long time since I updated!

So many things to talk about!  I guess that’s what happens when you don’t update your blog for 2 weeks!

Nicholas recovered well from his last ‘viral infection’.  Saying it that way makes it sound so much worse than it was – which was likely a bad cold that caused a REALLY high fever […]

Our first Valentine’s Day with Nicholas

First of all, when I finally got downstairs on VDay morning, I found that Nick had left a VDay card for Nicholas on his car seat, which was so sweet! And…he got me a WONDERFUL card and left it on my work bag.

Then, when I was on my way home, Nick kept […]
