The weekend went wonderful. We had beautiful weather all weekend and Christina and I were able to spend lots of time outside. Sunblock weather it is.

Saturday morning Christina and I headed for the Kademan Family breakfast. We picked up grandpa, Julie, and Marilyn. Hope you are feeling better Don. Christina did excellent on the way there. She even was turning to look at Marilyn and listen to the conversation Marilyn and Julie were having. It was cute. And to add to how proud I am, it was the first time Christina had anyone in the back with her. Christina ate super well as usual. She played with grandpa and walked well for him. Christina also showed off how well she knows the alphabet. Christina said individual goodbyes when we left and had smiles for all.

Saturday afternoon grandma Kar came to visit. Christina was pleased to show our singing talents. And she wonderful walking in the yard. Thank you grandma Kar for the kitchen items and gas can.

Sunday Christina and I went to the park. We had a blast going down the slide. I still fit, yea me. Pam and Jake came to watch. Christina was giggly and wanted to show them how well she walks in the sand. Grandma Kar also came to watch, she even treated to ice cream. Yum, Christina ate most of it of course.

And, I even got the lawn mowed this weekend.

It was a fun weekend. Miss you Christina.

Christina's neuro development appointments

Christina's latest doctor appointments were on Thursday. We met with her neurologist and har developmental doctors.

The trip there went well. We took the van and listened to Christina's favorite traveling music. No tears!!! And no tears on the way home until we were a few miles from home. Christina needed to use the bathroom which brought the tears.

Christina does not have to go back to the neurologist. It was great news. It also was a little sad, we have been seeing Dr. Burnstein since Christina was a month old. He said Christina is doing awesome.

we don't see the Dr. Moore again for a year. He too is pleased with Christina's progress.

Christina had a bad night Thursday. We now think that the trips to the docs are that overwhelming for her and that it is not the car ride that pushes her senses to the point she vomits and does not sleep.

Christina may also have strep.

Warm Sunny Day

A warm and sunny day here meant Christina and spent lots of time outside. We went for several walks and walked barefoot in the grass. Christina loves the feeling on her toes, even the prickly brown grass.

I tried to convince Christina to help me color eggs for Easter, but she wanted me to hold her so we argued and I ended up coloring them. I also packed some plastic eggs with candy. The plan is to stash some around the yard and have Christina look for them. I'll have her hunt for her Easter basket too.

Other updates are the same 'ol stuff. Still not sleeping well and my eating habits are not getting better. Stress, ugh.

For those who are aware, happy Holy Thursday.

It was a pretty good weekend. Saturday, Christina and I met some of the extended family for breakfast. We had to get up early and had an hour drive. Christina was a wonderful little girl. The car ride went well there and back and she was more cheery than me for that time of the morning. Christina sat on grandpa's lap with only a few tears to start and then it was talking and telling stories.

Both of us were a little off the rest of the day. We were tired and Christina did not want to nap. Mid afternoon I held Christina for a nap and ended up falling asleep too. There are times I miss those days and it was nice to have Christina take a nap laying on me.

Sunday we went to the park and met Sheri and Dylan there. Christina enjoyed being there, but was a little leery of everything. We also went for a walk in the morning. It was sunny and the temp was workable.

Easter is coming up and I think we are going to stay home. I'm still undecided if I'm going to make a big dinner. It has been awhile and I miss cooking a big meal.

Still working on pictures.

We have had wonderful weather here. This past weekend Christina and I spent a lot of time outside. Now if only I can get everything done in the house.

Christina and I went to the Children's Museum for the first time on Sunday. We met Dan, Sheri, and Dylan there. It was fun, going to definately go again.

The family breakfast is coming up and I am looking forward to seeing everyone again.

For those of you who check out the pictures online, I am working on them to make it more user friendly and efficient. Slowly I should add.

Another Day in Paradise

Christina did not sleep well last night. Angela got up with her and managed to get her back down quite some time later by laying in bed with her.

I woke up before the alarm, oh joy. So after I get some coffee in me, I get a message to check out Facebook. And what do my wondering eyes see, nothing. I woke Angela to see if she wanted to get up and if she would get up to talk to me. We are having issues for lack of a better of describing. It seems there are things going on I am only partially aware of. So I asked Angela to fill in some of the details and we argued.

The day was stressful for both of us. I am still sick and my voice is going and Angela is still sick too. Neither of us showing signs of getting better.

Angela and Christina went to the mall to see Santa. They had their pictures taken and Christina enjoyed tugging at Santa's beard and playing with Rudolph. The picture looks very nice.

After work was tense. I am ready for my night smoke and to head to bed.

Today Christina had another good day at school, she told me all about it. Angela had a doctor appointment and I met them at the clinic.

Angela and I planned to go have a drink after I got home from work. All you parents know, sometimes things do not go as planned. All three of us did get to spend the evening together shopping. We walked through the whole store and found lots of cute things for Christina and Angela. And found a cool toy for Christina, santa may have gotten it for her.

I'm not a huge fan of shopping and clothes shopping may be towards the bottom of that list, but I enjoyed very much spending the evening with my girls. I'd do it again.

Dishes are done, coffee is ready, time for a smoke, and bed. Still could use that drink.

There could be a song floating around out there. Really though, if I'm gonna mention a reference to a song with Monday in the title it better be Blue Monday, good tune.

Today was a typical Monday plus my still being sick and my cough getting worse, Angela still has pneumonia and has to go back tomorrow so they can take a better look(never a good sign). Along with the usual stresses as of late.

Christina had a good day at school. She was undecided who to hang with when I got home. She was walking in her gait trainer while holding mommy's hand. Christina was doing an excellent job. They were heading for the Christmas tree with Christina's hat. Great job Christina, and cheers to mommy for pushing and giving Christina the confidence she needs.

Supper time did not go well with Christina, a time out was in order. We did come to a compromise and she ate. We played on the floor tonight cutting wooden vegetables and then more laps.

Time to back up more photos.
Sleeping in

All of us slept in this morning. I woke up at 09:00, Angela and Christina woke up at 09:30. Woo hoo!!!

I had my time out of the house; went for coffee, hit the store, and then the gym. I'm still sick so the gym was short.

Christina and I put decorations on the Christmas tree. We had a blast. She enjoyed grabbing the silver balls and putting them on the tree. We tried some colored ones, but took them off. The tree looks nice. Angela put some holiday decorations around the house and it looks festive.

Tonight, Christina and I had supper and played on the floor for a little while. Then she wanted to walk. Christina took wonderful steps and did her little hop and giggled. She was doing very well and with some coaxing, she hopped quite a bit.

Angela went to do homework at her mom's. After I put Christina down and checked outside, I thought I would check on Angela also. As it turns out she was sitting in the car with a friend. He opted to take off, not sure why. Gotta admit, that doesn't look good. I'm thinking something is going on. Why else would they take off. Must not be that much homework.

Off to have another smoke(I'm stressed) then bed.

Christina was up at 04:30 today. Again she was tolerant of me getting her meds together and making coffee. Not to mention plopping our butts on the couch so Christina could tell me about her dreams and could get a few more minutes to wake up.

We walked a lot today. By late morning Christina was ready for a break before a full lap was done. Her breaks; however, are a couple of minutes and then it is time to go again.

Christina took a long nap today. I went to get a Christmas tree and Angela did laundry. Angela needed to get out of the house so she went for a drive.

We put the tree up tonight and have the lights on. It was very enjoyable to watch Christina with the lights, she helped. We started late and I want to go to bed rather than putting the rest of the decorations on.

Christina is in bed, Angela is wrapping presents, and I am ready to finish up and go to bed.
