Am I cute, or what???
The prince sleeps...
Okay, Lisa, after many attempts, you are officially being congratulated on naming our child!!! We've gone round and round on trying to pick a name, but Colt finally agreed on Valentines Day that we can name her Sydney Ann Scott. Her initials will be SAS, instead of ASS (sorry to disappoint you Cherise!) That's one more thing that I can check off my list of things to do...give my kid a name :) I can't believe that it's already so close to time; 9 weeks will be here before I can turn around.
It's been another eventful week. The day after he had x-rays to locate "the dime", he slit his eye open. Fortunately it wasn't close to his eyeball, but close enough to the lid that we had a hard time keeping the wound shut. It happened late in the evening, so we decided against an ER visit. I figure that girls usually think scars are sexy and boys think of them as trophies, so it shouldn't be a big deal. If we could just keep him from picking the scab off, it might actually get well.
Not much to tell, but here are a few pictures to look at. Have a good week.
FYI...We found the dime and it's now in his baby book (scrubbed clean, of course!)

Eating at the big boy table...
Riding with Daddy, Nana and Papa...
Good to see old friends...
There's so much to write about this time. First off I want to say how good it was to see so many of you last weekend. I don't think I'd seen Cherise and Darla since school and that was a long time ago. Thanks to the Kappa girls for letting a CD come party with you. I kind of considered myself "transclub" (get it??? instead of transgender), therefore it was never a big deal. As for my old CD's, we need to get together next year. I will volunteer my house. Let's try and make that a priority; who knows we might could even go to the breakfast but that's probably pushing it for me :)
Anyway, Saturday afternoon Ryder decided to have a dime for lunch. I saw him pick it up and run to his bedroom, but by the time I got there it was too late. He started choking but managed to get it down. His pediatrician said as long as it's not blocking his airway that it would pass through in about 12 or so hours, 3 days at the most. In the mean time, he developed a deep cough and heavy wheeze. Since today is the 4th day and we still have no dime, she said he needed an immediate X-ray. She even mentioned a surgical procedure because she thought it might be trapped in his right lunch. Long story short, we found a dime in the X-ray but its deep in his gut instead of his lung. There's really nothing that can be done, but she said it can take up to 6 weeks for him to pass it through. That means I could be digging through his diapers for another month and a half....that's disgusting. While were waiting on the dime to show up, he's having to take breathing treatments every four hours for a severe upper respiratory infection! All in all, we're pretty lucky because he hasn't been really sick in over a year. As for the dime incident, I have a feeling we'll have plenty doctors/ER visits in the future because he's ALL boy!
That's all for now. Have a great week!
