First Day of First Grade

Here are the hotly anticipated back to school photos you have been waiting to see. And by you I’m probably talking to the grandparents.  Every one else just enjoy the usual cuteness.  Today was our first day back to school.  Last year we dabbled our toes in a home-schooled Kindergarten designed by yours truly.  However

Back in the Saddle Again

It is surprising the lengths I will go to to stay out of the unbearable heat/humidity such as writing on this blog.  Just kidding.  The end of summer (starting early in my mind) has always been more of a time of resolutions and life changes for me than any New Years.  It must be the

Another Dose of Remicade

Last week, Adela got her next dose of Remicade, the medicine that helps keep her Crohn’s in check.  We actually were supposed to get it last Tuesday, but after getting to the hospital, the nurse and the doctor decided Adela needed to wait for a few days because of a cough she had. It was

Say Aaahhh…

Adela had a busy week last week.  A visit to the dentist, a visit to the endocrinologist, and a play date. Mommy and Adela visited her dentist on Tuesday over at UNC.  To make a long story short, she has great teeth.  Adela was very cooperative (even happy) and let her dentist check and brush

A Long Overdue Update

It’s been a few months since we last posted an update.  With Christmas, the new year, and my getting a new job, I seem to have been able to find quite a few excuses to put off writing a new post.  However, I know many people are eager to hear how Adela has been doing,

Nine Months of Growth in One Post

Hello everyone.  It’s been quite a while since we updated Adela’s blog.  We had originally planned for this blog to be updated quite often with news from Adela-land, however we quickly found that keeping up with Adela and everyday life trumped updating the blog.  We’re going to try to fix that and be a bit

Gramma and Grumpa Babysitting

I had Gramma and Grumpa over to babysit today while Mommy and Daddy went out to lunch.  It was fun to have lunch with them and play for the afternoon.  Mommy and Daddy say I’m talking a lot more.  In fact, I can say whole sentences now, but I usually only talk to people I

Visiting New Bern and the MumFest

We visited New Bern this weekend since Mommy and Nana had booths at the MumFest (New Bern’s annual craft show).  Adela was very excited about both Mommy and Nana having “craft boofs”.  Mommy was selling “beads” (jewelry) and Nana was selling “garden fanfans” (Garden Fancies from her shop).  On Saturday, while Mommy was manning her

Sharing Mommy

Today I had to share my mommy.  We started babysitting my second cousin Lincoln.  He is really small (2 months old) and he lays around a lot. We watch him for four hours on Wednesdays while Aunt Lulu is at work.  It is hard to share mommy, but I like to read to him.

Burlington Carousel Festival

We took Adela to the Burlington Carousel Festival this weekend with Ali’s family.  Honestly, Adela didn’t enjoy it that much.  When we first arrived, there was some loud music that upset her.  She didn’t want to ride any of the rides (the park has a neat train that’s there all year long as well as
