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 […]

Our visit with the Peds Allergist

So…today we went to the Peds Allergist at Domino’s Farms in AA.  He was really nice and I really liked him, even when he asked me "what made you try eggs at 9mos" to which I QUICKLY replied…"at the 9mos well baby visit last week I asked SPECIFICALLY about eggs and Dr. G. told […]

OMG! Nicholas had an allergic rxn!!!

So…the pedi told me that I could try eggs (scrambled) with Nicholas. Since I ate eggs all during my pg and also, while nursing, I thought we should give it a try.


First of all, he didn’t seem to like the texture of them. Looking back, I’m thinking that he probably […]

Nicholas’ 9 month visit!

Nicholas’ 9 month well-baby visit was on Wednesday, June 25.

His stats are:

21lbs, 2oz (50th percentile) 29.5″ long (75th percentile) 17.5″ head circumference (30th percentile)

He’s doing really well, per Dr. Gessner. In the last couple of weeks, he’s begun saying “Mama” and “Dada” and has gone from eating strictly purees to […]

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 […]

Happy Half-Birthday Nicholas!

Nicholas is 6 months old today!  For those that are wondering, that means 26 weeks old!  It’s been a long time since we counted in weeks!

Let’s see…what’s been happening in the last month?  We’ve seen lots of changes in our little Nicholas!  He’s pretty much sleeping through the night, with a huge improvement […]

Updates on the past couple of weeks!

Wow!  I haven’t updated since Valentine’s Day!  Soon it will be St. Patrick’s Day!

Let’s see…ever since Nicholas got sick, his sleep schedule has been pretty wacky (hence the lack of posts) and we *think* we may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!  He slept through the night (truly slept […]

Just some random thoughts!

Just when you think you’ve got a routine down…then life throws you a curveball! 

This is my 3rd week back to work…we’re doing much better than we were the first week, but Mommy is still getting used to having to get to bed by 10pm so she can be up at 5:15am to […]

Mommy’s return to work, Nicholas’ first days at TBP…and more!

WOW!  The old cliche really holds true!  Time really DOES fly when you’re having fun!

So much has happened since the baptism!  We celebrated Nicholas’ first New Year’s Eve with a trip to Mike & Kim’s and had dinner with Mike, Kim, Bonnie, Libby, & Mazie.  Kim was gracious enough to cook […]

Nicholas’ visit to the doctor…

So in case you didn’t hear…Nicholas hadn’t gone poo in 14+ days!  I guess it’s not uncommon for breastfed babies to utilize their food more efficiently and stretch out times in between BMs.  Well, the last time Nicholas had gone poo was the night of our baptism class in November (so weird to say […]
