Oh the places you'll go!

Here are a few of the places we could apply for this year to go to next year.  I'm still a little green to be qualified however, so we'll hold off for now.

I tried to find somewhat obscure pictures, how many can you identify?

North Korea fired more missiles.  Some countries are known for diamonds, others for cocoa beans, North Korea has made a living of being the country that violates international law. Trying to get as much as they can for the minimal concessions.   
I'm not too convinced about their strategy however, just ask Milosevic and Saddam how it worked out for them.  I feel that sooner than we think the day will come that the DMZ will be as applicable as the Berlin Wall after 1989.

Doctor's appointment

We are feeling really good after this latest doctor's visit.  Her oxygen is 100%, whatever that means (I just know that 100% is usually really good).  Her lungs sound good.  We've stopped the antibiotic but learned that the green stuff (Linusx..., to loosen the bowels) is here to stay for an indefinite period.  She gained about 9 ounces in a week and a half, which is great.  On a side-note she is army crawling and is starting to get up on her knees. 

Karlie and Katie

Karlie and Katie entertained us for Memorial Day weekend.  Katie whupped us at LIFE.  We braved our pool again and lasted a little longer this time.  We brought the game SCUM back to life but after spending about 3/4 of the game as scum I think we might have to pull the plug for a while.  You can only take being told "Sweep 'em scum" so many times.  We went to the mall for some dollar Old Navy flip-flops but the entire wall was bare.  We got some Ben & Jerry's on a hot day but it might have been my last because of some horrible customer service.  Despite these few setbacks we had a great time filling each other in on the latest drama, laughing, napping (MD was up by 630am every morning), and memorializing.

Here is a color picture so you can see the color of her dress.

Happy Birthday Craig

Happy Belated Birthday Craig!  I would hurt myself just to be treated by you.  I like how Craig listens really well and is infectiously happy.

First swim of the season

The pool was freezing, we didn't make it too long.  Mary Deane was ready to go but we didn't get her wet beyond her feet.  We've had a busy spring so far.  We have ducks with babies, geese with goslings, king blue heron (right Ann?), squirrels, turtles, red-winged blackbirds, caterpillars, cardinals, mourning doves, and robins right in the 'backyard'.  Ann has been hissed at by the geese twice.

MD doesn't get the pulmozyme anymore but we did add a new antibiotic.  She has been sleeping and eating really well.  Her new favorite food is prune puree.  We went to the monthly CF support group and met some other parents dealing with CF.  There is a CF run/walk soon that Ann and I are going to try and participate in.  I'm trying to fill in some of the holes from Ann's blog, I think that's good for now. 


I've been holding out

Here are some of the latest MD pictures.

Happy Mother's Day

 There are only a few people in the world that actually care about you, and she is one of those for me.  Out of the many admirable attributes that my mother has, the one I admire most would have to be her willingness to sacrifice.  As a new father, I can see how much I took her for granted.  Thank you for being involved in my life.  I love you and happy mother's day!
