Sorry for no updates! Our home computer is broke! We are in the process and trying to fix/possibly buying a new one - so I cannot download pics or video since all the software to do so is on our computer... "sigh". As soon as we get back up and running - I will do a long long post updating on everything!

Fun Day Sunday!

I think we are finally better - yes we have a few more days of antibiotic, but overall - we are better. Here are some pictures from today...

LOOK! Heidi has TEETH
Playing and of course including the boys...

Brewski relaxing...
We took Heidi outside to play for the first time. She had a blast riding her Chicco car thingy and pushing her other walker thingy. She also discovered grass for the first time! Now if I can just keep her from eating gravel - things would be great! I can't wait for more nice weather! Come on Spring!

Parade Day

It's that time of year again - the Irish Parade Day - I really don't know the official title. We all were just well enough to attend. Every year it's downtown the Saturday before Saint Patty's Day. Sarah Ryan's family, I believe, is the one who started meeting up at Old Chicago for a morning beer and then parade watching. Here are some pictures from the festivities...

Sue and Bob Ryan
Anisa and Nancy

Parade Crowd

Awww - daddy and Heidi - notice Chris' tiny little hat!
Need I say more?

Bag Pipers
The Police Officers and Nate, Sarah's Fiance
The Firefighters
There were even dog rescue groups - like the Basset Hound rescue of Nebraska - I like seeing all the dogs in the parade - hehe
Happy Saint Patty's Day!

Slowly Healing...

Heidi is healing well. Here she was on Monday...

And here is Tuesday, not 100% but looking better!

I'm hoping in just a few more days, we are back to normal! (myself included) - I'm not making such a fast recovery, but I am getting better.

The sickness continues and our little 9 month peanut…

Heidi and I are still sick in the Gonzales house. I was diagnosed with a sinus infection, upper respiratory infection and a sprinkle of bronchitis. Four different meds later – I should be finally well in 10 days… awwwww

Heidi has been under the weather for awhile now. It seems like she gets one thing after the other. Well Friday she developed a scratchy voice and we just thought her throat was finally giving up after all the drainage she has had. Turns out…um no – Heidi has Croup (sp?) – the worst is past. I guess its when their throats or voice boxes get swollen. It can lead to respiratory issues – which thank god Heidi hasn’t had any. I think the fact our house is naturally cool and we run a cold humidifier in her room – it saved it. The on top of that – she has a double ear infection. So in 10 days with her antibiotic, she should be back to normal too.

Oh and she is teething too! Two little teeth are poking through – when they come in completely – I will snap a picture!

We did her 9 month pictures with Christina yesterday, but she wasn’t in the most chipper mood – which we now know why. But being the awesome photographer that Christina is – we did catch a couple of good ones – I can’t wait to see the final ones!

So her 9 month appointment – we have a peanut on our hands! She is 26 ½ inches long and weighing in at 16 pounds 6 ounces. She is in the 12th percentile basically. She is just a wee one. Besides her sickness, she looks great. She cried through the whole appointment, she just doesn’t feel well. Once she turns around – I’ll try to snap some pictures of her – but right now – she ain’t in the mood!

Back to bed for both of of us...

Trying to feel better...

So I took the whole - if you feel like crap - dress up and wear bright colors and it may make you feel better - have you heard that before? Since Heidi has been in sleepers for basically four days straight - tonight I thought...hmm let's dress her up to go grab dinner and see if that helps...

I think it helped and if it didn't, it helped me :)

Boogers and a little thing called Facebook

Heidi is sick...yet again... We had a very rough weekend and Heidi just isn't herself - but after yet another doctor's visit - we think she should be able to get over this one. Doc's theory... she is teething (hence the head tilting thing - we now call it the Stevie Wonder) - so... since she is teething - she puts things in her mouth which means she is more than likely to pick up an infection - she has recently switched rooms at daycare, different kids, more kids, more glorious germs. She is already feeling better - better mood today and is willing to play - which is a huge improvement from this weekend! Let's just hope we have a better night than last night!

The other note, I finally joined facebook - a little late - but so far - I'm head-over-heels in love. I have been able to reach out to people I have lost contact with and its a good way to pass the time when you're bored. If you can look past the five billion emails you receive from facebook, its a great meeting place area. I haven't been weirded out yet - but then again - I've been on it for 5 days...there's time for that...

When Heidi feels better I'll take more pictures...
