Lately (the past few days), he's been making this new kind of whine noise. It always happens when he's happy and smiling. So, he smiles, makes this noise for a little bit, then cries. I've decided that he's trying to find his laugh. Not really sure what it's going to sound like after hearing the noise he makes, but I'm sure it will be cute!
I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash today. I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash today. I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash today. I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash, I'm getting my flash today.
Whoo-hoo! Merry Christmas to me! Thank you so much Miguel! I was deciding between the Canon 430 EX & the Canon 580 EX. After Miguel talking to some friends, and me talking to some friends, and a guy at a camera store, I've decided to go with the 430. More resonable for the type of pictures that I plan on taking with it.
I can't believe it, but Colin is 3 months old today. He has grown so fast, and is learning every day. He was this little blob that ate, pooped, and cried when we brought him home; but now he is interactive, coos, laughs, and smiles all day long. I am so grateful for the opportunity have this precious little angel in my life.
I hope that everyone has a fun & safe Thanksgiving. The thing that I am most thankful for this year, is of course, Colin. He has brought so much joy to me in the past 3 months. Priase God for His greatness.
So we (Miguel, Colin & I) took our Christmas pictures today. Not that great. Our appointment was for 2:10, and they didn't start until 3:10. I purposely scheduled the appointment for the time I did b/c I knew Colin would be awake and happy for the most part. Since the appointment was delayed, it was time for Colin to eat at 3:00. We had to stop to feed him after just a few pictures b/c he was crying and fussy (can you blame him?). After he ate he still wasn't that happy, but we took the pictures anyway. He didn't really smile for any of them, and the pictures didn't really turn out that great. They were so busy, and I really felt like we were being rushed. Anyway, I will post them when I get them back and can scan them.
Not sure what I had, but 2 days ago I layed around this house all day long not feeling well. When Miguel got home from work, he took my temperature, and I was running a fever. I'm so glad that Miguel stayed home from work yesterday to help me with Colin, while I pretty much layed in bed all day running fever. I feel a much better than the first day, but not quite myself yet. Thank you Miguel for taking care of me (and Colin!) yesterday! I love you!
Well, I worked yesterday. I pretty much picked up right where I left off. I was nervous that I had lost some of my skills b/c I hadn't done them in about 4+ months, but I was fine. I jumped right in and all was fine as far as work was concerned. I cried almost the whole way to work, and a couple of times during the day. I think that Miguel was probably sick of me calling him.
I got through it...thank God, and will do it all over again next week.
Tomorrow is going to be my first day back at work. I'm nervous about going back, since I haven't worked in almost 3 months, and before that I wasn't working in the main ER...I was doing something very simple (since my belly was so big!). I'm also nervous about leaving Colin for such a long time (about 15 hours). I know that Miguel will be watching him, but I'm still nervous.
So I forgot to post that last Thursday we finally decided on a new car, and bought it. We got a 2007 Toyota RAV4! Yay! I'm so excited that I don't have to bend down anymore to put Colin in the car. It's the perfect height. We test drove 3 cars, and researched quite a few, but the RAV4 met our needs the best! We got rid of my Accord. It's a pretty blue color. I'll post a picture when we get it back from the shop (leather seats are being installed)
