Remember how I told the internet that Dom has conquered much and this was in reference to his pneumonia? Well. I lied. We had a rough week, but mostly, it was Dom that has it rough. His fever started Sunday, but after some ibuprofen, it was gone. Monday morning, it was back again, rearing it's … Continue reading My PaMonia Boy (Just Like His Daddy)
Dom's first Halloween. Epic. Daycare called me on Halloween to pick him up early. The culprit: a rash. Poor guy can't get a break. He was still in good spirits, though, despite the skin irritations, and we continued on with our celebrations. He briefly donned a C3PO costume, but his bat costume really stole the … Continue reading Halloweeeeeeeeen (and some random other pics tagging along for the blog post ride)
Dominic is superior to baby food. At least, he recently developed this complex. He expects to eat the same thing we are eating. Pizza? I'll have that. Cheeseburger? Me, please. Pureed mixed fruit? No. Thank. You. He only has two teeth (or perhaps I should say, he finally has two teeth) so we offer him the … Continue reading Eat Your Food It’s Good For You
Who loves the camera? THIS kid. Who loves munching on blueberries? Also, THIS kid. Dom's a pretty happy kid and when he finds things he loves, his exuberance shows up all over his face, kind of like the purple blueberry juice. Yum.
Dinner time with Dommie boy
Yesterday evening, Nathan was at class until a little after 9:00 p.m. so Dominic and I were on our own. We went on an outing together. We went to visit Aunt Natalie, our Auntie N. The problem, though, was that she wasn’t really there. When we first arrived, a friend of hers was just inside … Continue reading A Visit With Auntie N
We’ve been doing some work on the condo, but I’m saving that for a later post. Due to this, we spent a lot of time working on that over Labor Day weekend. I even have pictures… for later. So despite my title, which I could change, but I just don’t feel like it, I’m going … Continue reading Laboring for Labor Day
Dom had his 9 month appointment today. He's a skinny boy, only in the 10th percentile for weight now. Head and height still basically average. And he's off the charts for radicalness, clearly. His teachers at daycare tell me he's guapo. I agree. He's our guapito. A few thoughts on 9 months: He's yet to … Continue reading Rocking 9 Months
Ah, yes, Flaco. What a loyal horse he was, standing so still for our little family picture. We set the camera up on the stroller, saddled Dom up on Flaco and said cheese. Turns out, when there isn't anybody behind the camera making goofy noises or doing jumping jacks, Dom tends to look elsewhere. He … Continue reading Surviving His First Campbell Family Vacation
With the Independence Day holiday this last Thursday, I took advantage and made it into an extra-specially long weekend by taking Friday off from work. It was the best! On the 4th, Nathan was blessed with lots of homework so Dom and I left him at home with Pogi’s help while we went to the … Continue reading Sitting, Smiling, Bathing, Tubbing. Birds, Pogi, and Plenty of Fun!
