So yesterday I took Remi to the doctor to see if he had an infection and/or something more than a cold's just a cold! I swear his cough sounds like it is coming from deep in his lungs and now the poor baby has dry skin from mommy and daddy trying to get his runny snot from getting all over his face and hair. I also asked the doctor why he seems to be vomitting once a night and it seems that since babies can't blow their nose or cough up snot, sometimes the only way to get the mucus out is to throw up (sorry for the gross and detailed description, but this is our everyday blog, so you get it all)...needless to say we having been changing sheets and doing a lot of laundry. Today he doesn't seem to be doing any better...still coughing while we run to catch the snot before it hits the floor and/or Lola...but he still has a smile on his face and is laughing as usual.

It looks like he got the okay from the doctor to fly so Ry is off to the OC tomorrow (most likely) and I am off to Idaho at 9 am. We just remembered we need a place for Lola to stay (oops)...I'm pretty sure my neighbor will do it!

We just put the Remi to bed.....10 minutes later he threw up...we changed the sheet and now he is sleeping. We have a lot to do before tomorrow's flights so...were off for now....write more after my girls weekend and Ry's weekend with his mom and the Remi!

Well, Daddy is home from work today but unfortunately we didn't get to do too much because Remi has a cough/cold. Were not sure if it is teething or an actual cold, but poor little guy has snot literally running down his face. If he doesn't seem to be doing any better by tomorrow then we will take him to the doctor only because he is getting on an airplane on Thursday! That's right.....were off again!

I am going on a girl's weekend to Idaho with friends Krista and Julie from High School....We all leave Thursday and return Sunday night. We plan on watching movies, going to dinners and getting massages. We are all mother's and decided we needed a little adult time! Which leaves Daddy home with Remi, although Daddy always seems to want to go places...for good reason. Unfortunately one of Ryan's friends/mentors/professors from paramedic school passed away last week and the memorial is in Orange County on Jan 31. Therefore Ryan and Remi will fly to orange County for the weekend and stay with Nonni and Grandaddy Tim. We are just hoping that Remi is feeling better and able to fly so Ryan can send his condolences to his friend.

That being said, Remi is napping and mommy and Daddy need to eat lunch while we have a free minute!

Welcome to our everyday!

So we decided to start a blog (a little late, but better late than never) so we can share with our family and friends what our little Remi is up to as gets bigger and bigger....this way we don't have to get in touble for not calling the grandparents enough! Hopefully we can keep everyone updated and post pictures and videos on a regular basis! Now on to bigger news....Remi got his first tooth yesterday, Jan 24th, 2009....It actually broke through the skin! you can barely see it and especially since he won't let you in his mouth to see it, but it is there.....aZqxzaxzzazaaaaa(that little message is from Remi)...he won't let go of the computer! Anyway....I was writing this big moment in his baby book and it asked how he handled teething and to be honest we were not sure! He got a stomach virus 2 weeks ago that lasted about 4 days and then he was just very grumpy and whiny, as if nothing made him happy and he was having major seperation anxiety! We thought he was still sick but it turns out it was his tooth! and now he is as happy as ever, pulling up on things and standing on his own for about 15 seconds before he gets so excited that he falls forward laughing! Now we are trying to teach him to go "feet first" on the bottom set of stairs instead of head first....he'll learn after a few bumps on the head......that's all for now!
