Day 260

25 07 2010

This morning started off weird!  I didn’t have a fever but after mommy fed me breakfast, I broke out into hives all over my legs and arms.  She was worried I was having an allergic reaction to something I ate – that happened once before when I first tried bananas…but this reaction was so much worse than that.  She called the dr’s office to see what they had to say, but the person answering the phone said I should come in.  So off we went, and Dr. Gheri was there again (I really like Dr. Gheri, she’s very nice.)  She said I might have a virus.  Apparently something has been going around and my symptoms, the low grade fever and hives, fit the symptoms.  There wasn’t really anything she could do for me – apparently it’s the kind of thing that has to run it’s course.  Other then the hives, I was feeling much better, not sluggish like the day before.  She said at this point I wasn’t contagious and it would be OK if I went out.  We had Jennie’s BBQ today and we were hoping not to miss it.  Lots of people from mommy’s high school were gonna be there and it was gonna be like a reunion.  Unfortunately it was gonna be a super hot day but we were looking forward to going in Jennie’s awesome pool.  I did go swimming for a little bit, but the heat made me super tired and I spent most of the day sleeping – thank goodness Jennie’s house had central air conditioning. 🙂

and I made some new friends today too!  This is me with Alicia – she has a twin sister named Cynthia.  Alicia and Cynthia look alike – that’s what being a twin means…..well one kind of twins look alike and they are that kind of twins!

Day 254

19 07 2010

The weatherman said there was another heat wave on the way.  Grandpa Sal’s lady friend, Mary, has a pool.  She’s been inviting mommy and daddy over for years but they’ve never gone.  Well knowing how much I like the water, and how much I seem to like pools, mommy decided today was the day to see if that offer still stood!  So we called up Grandpa Sal and he checked with Mary – and sure enough it did 🙂  So mommy and I suited up and went over.  Here I am with Mary’s daughter.  Mary’s son and his family where there too. And they had some friends come over.  It was a really nice day.  Daddy even joined us for a bit after he got off from work.  The heat must have really gotten to me because mommy said I fell asleep at 5:30pm and pretty much slept through until the next morning.  I tossed and turned a few times but always went back to sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Day 228 – Vacation (cont.)

26 06 2010

This was a weekend of firsts!  Not only did I go on vacation for the first time – but I went to the beach for the first time!  Well, the first time to go to the beach to actually get to sit on the beach 🙂  It was super hot but Aunt Dawn had two umbrellas so we had lots of shade.  Mommy brought my blow up pool so I had something to play in and keep cool.  It was lots of fun.   When I wasn’t playing in the pool or eating, I was napping.  It was nice and warm and cozy.  I liked crawling around on the blanket.  There was a lot of this gritty stuff all over the place and I liked sticking my hands in it and trying to put them in my mouth.  But for some reason mommy didn’t want me eating it – I don’t know why.  Daddy says that’s why he doesn’t like going to the beach – all that gritty stuff is annoying.  I don’t know – I thought it was kind of fun to play with.

That’s my Great Uncle Jeff and Cousin Christy behind me 🙂

Day 210

4 06 2010

See I told you this is how I spend most mornings, sitting on mommy & daddy’s bed playing with my Melissa & Doug toys.  The fishie is my favorite one – it’s so easy to chew.  Do you like my new outfit?  It’s one of the bazillion outfits they got for me when we went to the outlets last weekend.  It’s from baby gap.  The shirt is really nice and soft and it has a picture of a froggie on it saying “catch me if you can.”  When I start crawling soon that’s what I’m gonna be saying!

Today’s a special day cause there are two pictures for today!!  Today was really hot – like 90 degrees hot!!  When daddy got home from work, he put some water in my pool and brought me outside to play in it.  It was my first time in my pool.  Last time mommy took it out, I ended up not getting to go in because I fell asleep.  But I was wide awake this time 🙂

Day 206

31 05 2010

Today I went into a pool for the first time!  Mommy’s friend Jennie invited us over to hang out and she has an awesome pool – mommy couldn’t wait to take me in it.  We went swimming with Jennie and her sons, Adam and Eric.  We had a lot of fun.  Adam was learning to swim – he can do the doggie paddle all the way from one end of the pool to another.  I hope I can do that someday.  Jennie’s husband Kenny didn’t come in the pool – he had to run some errands.  That’s ok, he played with me in the house.  He made funny faces that made me smile.  I liked going to Jennie’s house.  I hope we can go again soon.

**that’s mommy holding me – you can’t see her though cause she says there will be no pics of her in a bathing suit unless she someday wakes up and has a body like Heidi Klums…..(editor’s note – so basically that means there will be no pics of mommy in a bathing suit ever)
