5 months old!

Alex is 5 months old today!!
In other news, we will be leaving for Jasper tomorrow to see Eric's family. We are looking forward to seeing Margaret and Rea, since they will be in town from Minnesota. Saturday, a few of us 'gals' will be going to Evansville to do some shopping. Tonight Colleen and I are going to the Purple Cow in South St. Louis County to their Mom's Night Out. It should be a good time!!
In Eric news: he bought a Wii gaming system that should be here today. That is his birthday and most of Christmas all wrapped into one. He has/will be doing mandatory overtime at work through the end of the year, so this is his "reward".

Low Key

Another big PT breakthrough!!! Alex actually let Peggy work on him and do some stretching. He did get upset, but not for the whole time. He even smiled again at the end. At this point, we are looking at therpy until the end of year, maybe into '09. As long as he is making progress and isn't in pain, I am happy :)


We had a low-key weekend this past one. Didn't do much, other then buy a couple of shelves to put up. Hopefully Eric will find time to put them up this week. My cousin Amy Agatucci got married to Ryan Gobble ( you can giggle, I did :) ) over the weekend in Springfield. Several of Grandpa's brothers and sisters were in the area, but we were unable to see them. Mom, Dad, and Grandpa did, however. I was under the weather last week. I thought it would be a sinus infection, but I never got full-blown sick. I just felt blah for a few days and had a runny nose. Basically, just a cold. Eric was nice and got Alex up and dressed Thursday-Saturday so I could get some extra sleep.

We have yet another beyond busy week. Eric has a meeting tomorrow night, I am going to Annunziata (where I used to work) Wednesday to drop some things off, Thursday Colleen and I are going to an event at the Purple Cow in South county, Friday I ahve a dr's appt., and Friday/Saturdayish we are heading to Jasper for 4 days to see some family!! Somewhere in there I need to start packing and ship a couple of Ebay items. For now, Alex is napping and I am watching Jeopardy.

I thought this was priceless. Alex scootchied himself over on his playmat and was peaking out between his chimes. He enjoyed being there, it didn't bother him a bit!

Wedded Bliss

since last I checked in, we have been bbuusssyyy!! Over the last weekend, we attended the wedding of my good friend Gail Baker and her new husband Bob Zwaska in The Haute. We went with Colleen McQuaid-Glattfelt and met her husband John there. We decided to make it an "adults only" weekend and left Alex with my folks. We had a great time and saw lots of people we haven't seen in a while. We even had square donuts!! The highlight was watching John almost take out a Little Old Lady while his picture was being taken.

PT went fabulously this week. The therapist said Alex really made a big breakthrough. He didn't scream that much and he actually smiled at Peggy! She did caution that this isn't the end of his road, more like the beginning. She thinks he is ready for the next "level".

Cats went to the vet this past week and all is well. They told us Gabby was fat, so nothing new there :) Speaking of kitties, I need to run. Molly is trying to step on the keyboard to get my attention and I believe it is working.

Busy Folks!

Wow, what a busy week so far!! PT and errands Monday, cleaning today, Vet tomorrow, AND going out of town Friday. I am preparing for my folks to come this weekend and watch Alex, while Eric, Colleen, and I go to Terre Haute for the wedding of our friend Gail Baker. I decided to leave Alex at home, since this will probably be the only oppertunity my parents will have to babysit. I cannot lie, I am looking forward to being a away for a bit, even if it is just Terre Haute.

on a PT note, Alex actually made the therapist cry on Monday. He just doesn't want to give control of his body to her. It is working well, he is becoming more flexible in his neck/trunk muscles.


I become an Ebay seller in the last week. I have always been an avid buyer, but I needed some extra holiday $$, so I am selling clothes. My screen name is Sarahmag79 if anyone wants to check out my clothing offerings. There will be more up some time next week.
