Nicholas’ visit with Tadeo…

And Corinne, Joe, Madelyn & Joshua, of course!

So, today Nicholas and I went to visit the Stone/Porco Family.  Joshua & Madelyn were born on October 1, so they're just over 2 weeks old!

The FIRST thing Nicholas noticed was their dog, Tadeo.  He's a ridgeless Rhodesian Ridgeback, and he's SO big compared to […]

Is it August already?

So…July has come and gone!  I can hardly believe that Nicholas turns one next month!

He’s definitely not a ‘baby’ anymore!  He’s crawling all over the house and loves to pull to standing!  He just recently ‘discovered’ the sliding glass door and loves to stand and bang on the glass!

He’s also very intrigued […]

He’s on the move!

July 2008 is Nicholas’ month!  He’s accomplished SO much already, and there’s still a week to go!

He’s now crawling ALL over the house, and pulling to a stand on EVERYTHING, including Gracie’s crate and our big screen tv.

He LOVES to try to get the dog toys, and it’s almost like there is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Please VOTE for Chloe!

So…Snapfish ( is having a ‘Funny Pets’ pet photo contest and I couldn’t resist entering Chloe’s picture.  It’s the one of her as a pirate…in case you forget what it looks like…here it is:

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 […]

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 […]

4 Weeks old ALREADY???

Oh my gosh!!!

Nicholas will be a month old on Tuesday.  I can hardly believe it.  And then, when I realize just HOW much sleep I’ve gotten (or how much I’m lacking) I think…oh yes, it’s definitely been a month!

Many people are wondering how Nick and I are doing.  We’re doing as well […]
