This is not Nora’s first ballet recital. My favorite part comes at the end when she tackles me with a hug.

Colin has been breathing pretty heavily for a while and sounding like Darth Baby. We’d talked to the Dr. about it before and decided to give it time to clear up on its own but recently things have gotten somewhat worse for the poor little fella (like waking himself up coughing in the night worse). Turns out, upon visit to our beloved pediatrician Dr. Rafati, that he has an ear infection and maybe a sinus infection. This trip involved a sidetrip to the X-Ray machine (not shown) which turned up lines of mucus in his lungs that looked scary to us but is apparently no big deal. He’s on antibiotics now and, presuming whatever he has is bacterial in origin, should be back up and not yet on his feet again in no time.
So all that might sound pretty grim but Colin, like his sister before him, never lets on exactly how sick he is. This is what our little buddy looked like today while waiting to be examined (and being examined).
We recently gave Colin a big pile of Nora’s baby books and they are definitely his taste. He kept looking over at me and smiling for the entire 20 minutes he was chewing his way through the pile with this little grin that said, “are you really not going to stop this madness? look what the baby is doing!”
It’s happened again. A giant rabbit broke into our house. He once again left behind a tremendous amount of evidence, some of it hidden, which Nora diligently uncovered for us. The police will do nothing. The White House won’t answer my calls. The alfalfa pellets scattered around the patio did not distract him. Can no one end this national nightmare?
Okay, I’m biased, but you’ve just got to love Colin. This kid is made of joy. Sure, he gets cranky and sleepy sometimes and, yeah, he’s a bear when he’s sick. But when he’s rested and healthy you have to wear dark sunglasses to protect your vision from his disposition. He has a size 10 smile on a size 4 head.
