Just Life

A new little bomb has dropped in the Collins household. Madelyn and Christopher have been sick. Christopher very sick with RSV (Respiratory Syncytial virus) pretty common but possibly deadly in newborns. He's much better than last week as he doesn't have a concurrent stomach bug anymore, is being treated for his ear infection, and smiled for the first time since he got sick the other day. I just came down with the bug(s) and feel TERRIBLE! The other bomb James asked me not to blog.

Christopher's Baby Announcement

Here's his birth announcement for everyone I didn't have a current address for. I Photoshopped it a little bit from the original just because I liked being able to add more than 30 characters per line and actually being able to have our last name on it.

Grammy Barbara's Visit

Earlier in the month of December, we had the pleasure of having "Grammy" Collins come and visit for a week. She was an absolute pleasure to have and a real blessing by cooking, cleaning, offering good company, spoiling us rotten, and watching the kids while I got some much needed sleep. I was able to take her by the John Muir home so at least Barbara was able to see something besides the inside of our house while she was here. She also spoiled us by taking us out (among other places) to Vic Stewart's; an extremely delicious high end steak house brand-new to Brentwood. Everything was so deliciously prepared that I didn't even need salt and I'm a salt addict. It was a great visit and I'll post some more pictures as soon as I can get this little ball of cuteness off my shoulder.

Madelyn Princess

Christopher stopped crying as soon as Madelyn put her finger to her mouth, so funny.

Christopher 3 weeks old.
