Attack of the 72-Hour Stomach Bug

I've been having tummy troubles.

But I think I'm starting to feel a little bit better now.

Happy Homecoming Day!!!

Exactly one year ago today, after 3 long months, we got to take Anthony home from the NICU!

Ready to go?

Paul found the biggest balloon ever to thank everyone in the NICU for taking care of our precious boy.

We couldn't believe they were really going to let us leave with him!

With Karen, one of Anthony's very favorite NICU nurses. Karen gave Anthony a copy of the Dr. Seuss book, "Oh the Places You'll Go!" as a going away present.

Making our getaway.

All strapped in and ready for his first car ride!

All systems go!!!

Home at last.

Where he belongs.

Fashion Faux Pas

I got some new PJs for Anthony. Aren't they cute?

I thought so too.

Until we realized they bear a striking resemblance to...

Oh well.

Mother's Day: What a difference a year makes!

I had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend. On Sunday, we had lunch with Grandma Jeanne and then spent the rest of the day hanging out in the backyard. Mother Nature made sure it was sunny and warm for our day. On Saturday, we took Anthony for a wagon ride to the park. This made me think of last Mother's Day. It was my first one, and Anthony was still in the hospital. But he was doing great and we knew we were going to be able to take him home very soon. As a surprise for Mother's Day, when we came to the NICU for our visit, we found out that Anthony's nurse, Natalie, had arranged for us to take Anthony for a wagon ride...outside! It was the first time we were able to take him out of the NICU. What a special first Mother's Day. Here's the video of him riding down the hallway in his Superman shirt.

He's so much bigger now (and he has so much more hair!), but he's still my baby.

Thanks for being the best mommy ever! You always believe in me and make everything better! I am such a lucky little boy to have such a sweet and pretty mommy as you! Happy Mothers Day!

Love, your boy Anthony (with a little help from daddy)

Ready, Set, Shop!

Last week Anthony graduated from his infant carrier travel system to a big boy carseat and stroller. This means no more riding in his "bucket" in the cart when he goes shopping with Daddy.

Here he is sitting in the cart all by himself for the very first time!
