Eighteen Months

Better late than never, but we finally had Riley’s 18 month doctor’s appointment.  He only had one vaccine today, thankfully, and barring flu shots, is done with the shots for a long time.  He was a brave boy and only cried for a about 15 seconds, but still, no one wants to see their baby...

4 Years of Blogging

I started blogging August 24th, 2007.  I couldn’t believe it when I looked back over the blog a few weeks ago and realized just how long I’ve been doing this. The blog’s had its ups and downs – periods of a complete lack of posts, periods of completely boring posts, and periods of new, fun...

Another Baby Update

I hate that all my recent posts have been 100% baby related (theoretically, we’re supposed to have lives, too, right?), but between work and Andy’s rotation, just about the only thing I seem to have time to do is go to the doctor!  I already blogged about both our ultrasounds, which went really well, so...
