Congratulations Eric and Jessica

Ross and I flew to Vail for Eric and Jessica's wedding this weekend. It was only our second trip away from Connor and after all that we've been through we were in desperate need for a get away.

The wedding was beautiful and the bride looked simply gorgeous. It was so nice to see Eric so happy. He seems to have met the most perfect woman for him and I’m thrilled. I wish them all the best for a long and happy life together.

Ross and I had a blast catching up with everyone. It was so nice to see many of our old friends and even to make a few new ones along the way.

Neither of us had been to Colorado in the fall. We usually save our trips for mountain biking trips in the summer or ski trips in the winter. So, I have to thank Eric and Jessica for giving me a reason to visit this time of year. Also special thanks to Jen for being our hike leader . Ross and I didn't realize that we had joined the advanced hiking group until we were at the trailhead...too late to turn back now. That's ok, I've always wanted to hike 2 miles straight up the side of a mountain - in altitude. Gasp...

Also, thanks to the Red Lion for allowing Ross to clean out their stock of Blue Moon and Maker’s Mark (also the countless number of shots that arrived at our table). Nice – Real nice.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

We're back baby!!!

Surprise, surprise…

Our little peanut had his 6 month check up on Thursday. As you can imagine, Ross and I are now experts on the routine at the doctor's office.

It usually goes something like this...we arrive at the a little early, cough up our $25 co-pay and wait until the nurse to call us to the back. Once we're past the waiting room, we're instructed to strip Connor down so they can get naked weigh in. For all that we've been through - this is usually the moment of truth. It’s This is usually the point where I’m crossing my fingers, holding my breath and praying that he’s gained just a little bit of weight.

But this week was different. Connor surprised everyone and weighed in far better than any of us had expected! As a matter of fact, he actually gained enough to get him back on the growth chart!! The doctor was thrilled and so were we. I can't tell you how nice it feels to finally be moving in the right direction. Now we have to keep up the good work and keep hoping for the best.

Another big milestone is that Connor finally got his first tooth. He’s been working on it for quite some time, but this week it finally popped through the skin. And let me tell you, that little sucker is sharp! One down, 19 more to go…
