Bicycle Races

Quite a bit of catching up to do! Let’s jump into our (not-so) way-back machine. Some mini posts:

Just The Two Of Us

Jeffrey enjoyed a play date with his birthday buddy, Morgan. She entered the world just a few hours after our son, but with a full-term head start, the size difference gave all of us a chuckle. Morgan is also a big fan of the Fisher-Price Nature’s Sounds papasan cradle swing, and her Mom even taught us a new trick with it. That evening, our friends Kurt & Steph got their first taste of babysitting.

Solid As A Rock development for our little star. Even though he’s below the

Solid food has also been a new

recommended weight for starting solid foods, our pediatrician recommended starting him on rice cereal because if we don’t start soon, it may be more difficult down the road. For those of our

readers without children, let me clarify a bit. When I first heard “rice cereal”, I thought of this. It’s actually more like this. But unfortunately, rice cereal didn’t digest so well with Jeffrey, so our pediatrician switched him to oatmeal cereal… mmm, more fiber! He’s doing pretty well with that.

License To Ill

We dealt with our son’s first illness this past week. He began coughing and sounding generally pretty raspy over the weekend, so I took him to the pediatrician. Dr. Tomek told me that his lungs sound fine, and that he probably has an upper airway infection. Since it’s viral, there really aren’t any medications you can take to fight it, but that it would probably go away after about 7-10 days. He was right. But those were some very cranky 7-10 days. Oh, and did I mention that we think he may be starting to get a tooth?

Jeffrey and I spent this week watching the Tour De France on our MythTV system. He’s rooting for Floyd Landis on Team Phonak. I’d like to see George Hincapie or maybe Iban Mayo make it to Paris in Yellow. Neither one of us is rooting for Robbie McEwen, that cocky little Aussie, to win the green jersey, but it looks pretty well locked in at this point.


Oh, and there's new pictures (lots) on the right!

Aunt Bonnie in Pittsburgh says "Welcome Back" with the postings! I have been going through some major withdrawal!!! Now where are the pictures to go along with the posts?????

I can't wait to see Jeffrey (you guys too) in a couple of weeks. Be prepared - since we are leaving for Colorado I need to stock up on my Jeffrey fix so I will be beating everyone off with a stick. HE'S MINE!

Hey Brian, Danielle and Jeffrey!! The pictures of the kids are great!! I hope Morgan and Jeffrey can see each other often while growing up and years from now, can look back at these pictures for some laughs. It was nice to meet all of you--Jeffrey is certainly beautiful--

Dear Danielle and Brian,
Congratulations! I just read the notice in the Wilson Alumnae Quarterly and wanted to say that I'm glad your son is doing so well. I'll continue to keep you all in my prayers.
