We're on the mend!

Sammy is so much happier today...and hence so is Mommy!!
He seems to be feeling much better and he's almost himself. He's still coughing hard, but little by little.
It's such a beautiful day! We have the front door open and the heat turned off!!!! We love that! Don't worry, there'll be no escaping - there's a baby gate in the doorway. We really need to get a screen door! I'm finding myself dreaming of all of the projects I'd love to be able to do on the house this spring! I think we'll go over to the park and swing after naptime. I hope Daddy can come home a little early. That would be fun to do as a family!!
Well, nothing real exciting going on here today, just enjoying the spring weather and a not so sick little boy!

Poor Sammy

Sammy is pretty miserable...and is Mommy! ;)
We both woke up with sore throats on Thursday and it's only gotten worse. Poor little guy wakes up every 1/2 hour or so coughing real hard and cries because it hurts. Mommy isn't sleeping much either because she has one ear listening for him all day and night! The doctor let us give him some medicine today so hopefully he'll start feeling better.
The good news (better yet, GREAT news!) is that Daddy came home last night!!! After being away for 6 days in Florida for a Softball Crusade it's so GREAT to have him home! We sure miss Dada when he's gone! Sammy's such a good baby, but I still feel like I need a break every now and then. The hardest time is in the evening when Dada is normally getting home. That's when I really feel like it would be nice for someone else to help out! But he's home now and he's all ours!
Of course, this isn't a miserable picture. This is one I took a few weeks ago with Sammy doing his latest face. He closes his eyes real tight when you do it to him (or if you take the camera out - turkey!) =)

Ladies and Gentlemen ... we've finally arrived!!

Can you believe we've finally kind of caught up to "advanced" technology and have our own blog?! I mean really, it was just a few months ago that I learned what a blog is!! =) Well, here we are and we hope to keep you all updated on our lives. I really wish we had done this when Sammy was born because now I'm so torn as to what to do. Do I start from this point on or do I try and go back and post pictures of him since he was born and rack my brain to remember details??? I still don't know. I'm sure what will happen, to begin with anyway, is that I'll search through pictures and post the best ones (no matter the age) and tell you about them the best I can. Time does go by so fast!! It's already hard to remember what our first months were like with him...and it feels like he's always been with us! It's good to have you visiting us and please leave comments so I don't feel like I'm putting work into this and noone is noticing!! =)
