Happy New Year!

The holiday week started with Dane getting a cold... It's really the worst to know that your baby is not feeling well, and there was nothing I could do. He was very stuffed, coughing, and watery eyes. This was the first time he's ever been sick, so maybe I was a bit more nervous than I should have been. I took him to the Dr., and she said that it was just a cold, and he will get many more this season. Baby colds can last up to 10 days, and then come back within 3 days. So, basically he will be not feeling 100% for the rest of winter. :( She told us to use saline drops down his nose, to pull out the mucus, a humidifier, and baby vicks on his chest. All have been working well. Along with extra cuddles from Mommy! <3 We had AMAZING New Year's Plans, to attend a friend's progressive Asian dinner. But once Dane got sick we didn't think it was a good idea to take him out... booo... I guess this is just one sacrific mom's and dad's make! Oh well... Thanks Taryn and Brian for the invite! We hope to get together with you both very soon. Instead, we just hung out together at our house. We took an extra long family walk in the afternoon (can you believe it was 77 degrees here on NY eve?, crazy), and played some games, watched the countdown on Tv at night. I'm so embarrassed to admit that I didn't even stay up until midnight. Geez.. what a loser. Oh well... I'm happy not to be tired or hungover this New Year's day. That hasn't happened in years!! haha!! Oh motherhood! :) I also took out the camera and had a mini photo shoot with my little babe. He's getting so big! Can't believe he's almost 3 months. Time is going by so fast. And we're enjoying every minute!

Bumbo chair time! Thanks G-Pa Royce for this great gift... He's really getting good about holding his head up. But can't keep him in there for too long... it's too much on his tummy. :(

Fun with a sign... Watch out!

Hope you all have a great year!
