Curious George is doing well

And happy to play with another Curious George. :)

Mom, I am ready to go now!

Bye, bye hospital! It has not been fun, and we won't miss you!

Things are starting to look up

We are starting to wean Reagan off the Oxygen, we are down to .25 as of about 5 minutes ago. Hopefully he handles it well and we can turn it off tomorrow. As he starts to feel better it gets harder and harder to be here because he just wants to explore - not something we will allow him to do on hospital floors...

Chillin' on the couch with my cannula

We increased the O2 Reagan is getting (now at 1L) and that seems to have helped a lot. He is eating more and sleeping better.

In need of O2, but relaxed about it

Reagan is requiring much more O2 than we would like to keep his stats up but he is sleeping fairly well and seems to be at peace with his cannula. This is a blessing as he just tore them off within seconds when they put them on last night and then I spent all night repositioning a mask to try and direct it towards him without actually touching him...

Mommy, guess what I got us for Christmas!

Another hospital stay.... Reagan is RSV positive again and having some trouble breathing. As always, he is taking it like a champ and we hope to go home tomorrow.

So much fun on the monkey bars!

Beautiful sunset in Palm Springs

Hanging out with Reagan on the golf course.

Too young to drive?

Smile, you've got cookies!

We made Christmas cookies with the Chiu cousins. This is what I got when I asked Cooper to smile...

How'd Reagan get up there??

Dressed for work on a Saturday

Shopping, American style

Sometimes life in America is just easier. :)

Chasing the birds

At the beach with the Chiu cousins. A beautiful day for bird chasing! (Cooper is in the brighter blue shirt.)

Jet-lag is rough

As we were headed to the beach today I stopped at a drive-thru to get some caffeine. After telling me he didn't want me to stop, I should just drive straight to the beach Cooper said with much concern, "Mommy, my eyes are closing." I told him that was ok, when he woke up we would be at the beach. He was snoring within 5 seconds.

Not a bad life!

Headed to LA in First Class! (I won't mention where Reagan and Lou are sitting....)

Look at me!

Standing for at least as long as it takes my mom to get her camera out. :)

Hey mom, why does my brother have his hand up my shirt

Not at all bothered by it, just wondering. :)

Loving the new Legos mommy bought on eBay

Cooper and Daddy are fans to, but Reagan was happy to play in this box for about 30 minutes!

Halloween 2012: Part 2

Back home with our two skeletons.

The next morning Cooper wanted to dress Reagan up in his monster costume. Reagan tolerated it but Cooper loved it!

"Baby monster is getting me!"

Halloween 2012: Part 1

The much delayed photos:
Cooper and Harper at a "warmup" party in the afternoon.

The first house!! (Yes, that is Mommy dressed as Ronald McDonald!)

Cooper and Jack choosing their treats.

Daddy with Cooper and Jack.

Someone got tired of walking long before they got tired of trick-or-treating!

Not afraid of a bit of a mess!

Unlike Cooper, Reagan loves to feed himself. He just isn't very good at it yet. ;)

Going fishing?

Holding his own umbrella! (A cab driver pointed out he looked more suited for fishing than rain. ;))

Naptime, Daddy style

Daddy was in charge of Reagan today while Cooper and I went out to go swimming. First, he had over a 3-hour morning nap (usually 1 hour) and then 1.5 hours after waking up was back asleep again, this time on Daddy.

Guy Fawkes 2012

Cooper seemed underwhelmed by the fireworks this year (you might remember the "fireworks, fireworks, fireworks" video from last year). He wanted them to be "closer" and made me promise that next year "we would stand under them." He also told me that we must bring Reagan next year. It always gives me the warm fuzzies when Cooper says things like that about his brother, he really likes having him around - I hope it lasts forever!

Castle fun

Auntie Sarah (Thomason) gave the boys a great cardboard castle. It is one of those simple, genius things that keep young boys entertained for hours day after day.

They love to hide in the castle and then have daddy be a "monster".

Happy boy!

Although he is constantly congested and has a cough like an old man who has smoked for 50 years, Reagan is a very happy kid!

A couple great shots from the other day when Daddy was making funny faces at him.

So tall!!

With a little help from chairs and Daddy, Cooper stacked the Legos taller than Daddy.

Good to be home!

After a great trip to Africa without the boys, it was even better to be back home! (Thanks to Grandma, Auntie Taj and Lou for taking care of them while we were away.)

You're my best friend

Just said by Cooper:
You're my mommy
You're my best friend
You're my best friend, mommy
You come home to me
You come home to Cooper
I'm your best friend

Oh my! That sure does make a tired mom feel good. =)

See saw, see saw

Up, up and away!

We only have two steps at our flat so Reagan doesn't get much of a chance to demonstrate his climbing skills. Lou takes him to a friend's house a few times a week and he practices there. Here is a video Lou sent me - slight mishap at the end!

What happens when I am not around?

The other morning Reagan was eating breakfast and Cooper was playing. I walked out of the room for a second and came back to this. Reagan didn't seem to have even noticed!
