Did I tell you that there is a tree in our house?  It’s called a Christmas Tree.  Mom and Dad have been putting colorful things underneath it called presents.  I didn’t have any idea what this was all about, but Lina has been asking every day if she can open the presents.  I didn’t know what she was talking about, until today.  It turns out that the colorful presents are because it’s Christmastime.  Christmastime is when you visit with your cousins, have a tree in your house, listen to lots of music, and open presents and play with what is inside.  Seems great to me.  I’m not able to open the presents, so Lina opened mine for me.

We had a lot of fun.  Later this week it will be Christmas Day.  That’s a day when people celebrate the birth of a man who was named Jesus.  Mom and Dad say that he was a really nice guy who helped people.  On Christmas Day another man named Santa might come to our house with more presents.  Can you believe that?  More presents!  I can’t wait.


Bad News

I have bad news to tell you. It isn’t that my Papa John and Gram Pat had to go home. That did make me a sad, but I will see them when I get to meet my cousins at Christmas.

My bad news is Mom took me back to Mr. Dr. Dagli. This time it was because I’m sick. My sister had a cold. Then my dad got it. A cold is when you have a lot of snot. I know this because now I have a cold. It is no fun. When you have a lot of snot it is hard to breathe out of your nose. Did you know that you can also breathe out of your mouth? I’m just learning this, and sometimes I forget. Then I can’t breathe at all. Mom and Dad get scared. So do I.

Mr. Dr. Dagli says I will be OK. I was glad to hear that. Last night Mom and Dad had me sleep in my car seat. Isn’t that wierd? Mr. Dr. Dagli said that was a good idea. It helps with the snot. And I have a humidifier. Here I am trying to be healthy.


In good news, Lina and I helped Mom and Dad make some Christmas cookies tonight.



Lina was allowed to eat some of the batter. I couldn’t. I’m too little.


One month in

Hello friends. Tomorrow I will be one month old. I’ve been working hard on bulking up. I try to eat a lot. Mom and I have a system worked out. I cry, she feeds me. It’s pretty straight forward. I saw Mr. Dr. Dagli today and he gave me a good review. Says I weigh 9 pounds and 5 ounces. Which is a lot. Mom and Dad were glad, because sometimes they worry. I’ve had this thing where my tummy hurts. I complain and groan, sometimes I spit up, and a few times I did what they called “projectile vomit.” It’s all normal the doc says. It may be normal, but I don’t like it.

Dad and Lina had a cold and fever. They were worried that I would this cold to. I might have. Lots of boogers. But the doctor told mom and dad they can relax. That’s good.

After my appointment I went to lunch with Mom, Dad, Papa John, and Gram Pat. Here we are at my favorite place, Tip Top


They came yesterday. I like they visit. My Grandma Connie was visiting, but she had to go home to Texas and see Grandpa Pedro. I had a lot of fun visiting with them. They are really nice.

Did you know that it’s Christmastime? Lina had been telling me about this. You get something called presents. And there is a tree in our house!


Best of all, I get to go on a road trip. That’s when Mom, Dad, Lina, and I all sit in the car for a long time and drive to this place called Ohio to Papa John and Gram Pat’s house. And my cousins will be there. Lina days they are all awesome. I can’t wait to meet them and hear more about these presents.

I’ll be sure to update you! Lina days in supposed to say Merry Christmas now.
