Countdown to KC!

So the countdown is on for our big trip out to Kansas City to visit Jamie's brother's family. We are very excited and can't wait to see everyone, it should be so much fun. Hopefully we are all nice and healthy come time for us to fly out.

We are heading out April 5th out of Boston and we have a direct flight to KC. I'm nervous enough about having to fly with Ajax that there is no need at all to add a layover to make it that much tougher. So direct flight it is which will be great.

We have our flight all booked as well as the rental car we'll use when we get out there which will work out nice. We had been putting off finding a hotel because we weren't sure what we wanted to do for it but we recently made a decision and I made the reservations today! I am super excited about it because we will be staying at The Embassy in KC and they have great looking rooms AND check out the picture of their pool!!!!! Yea baby! We are going to have a blast and we can bring the boys over too so we can all play in the pool when we are there. This will be Ajax's first time meeting his KC cousins, first time on a plane and first time in a pool! A lot of first's happen when you have only been around for 5 months :o) Hopefully everything goes smoothly with the travel and we get to enjoy it all.

Time to kick Leukemia's butt

A friend of mine is running in the Cox Providence Rhode Race as part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. They are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
She is completing this marathon in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers and in memory of her father-in-law who lost his battle with myeloma in September of 2004.
Jamie and I have already donated to help her out, it was real easy to
do from her website: http://www.active.com/donate/tntri/tntriKLau
Take a look at it and donate if you can, it's a great cause and honestly who the heck can run a marathon?! I know that I'm certainly going to support someone willing to run 26.2 miles to help fight leukemia. I'm giving her huge props!!

Do you think he has my ears?

For Easter this year we all went out to my parent's house and stayed over for the weekend. It was a fun time and we had some really good laughs. Here's a picture of my dad with Ajax. I think I see where he gets his looks from :o)

We are all still trying to fight off a cold that we've had for awhile now. Hopefully we'll get better soon because it's so difficult trying to take care of a baby while he is sick and you are sick.

I hope that everyone had a great Easter!!

PS, this picture was taken with my new camera :o)



So I finally found my camera and can't wait to pick it up. The place I had pre-ordered it at was being wicked retarded (shout out to my Boston peeps) so I canceled it and moved on to Circuit City where they had one red camera left at the Dartmouth store. I'm picking it up after work today so I can try and learn all the features before our trip to Kansas City. I'm so excited I can't wait to get it! So I should be able to throw up more clips of our cute little man sometime soon.



So this weekend we had a great time going up to Maine. The hockey game was fun and we got to taunt the UMaine crowd when UML scored first! It was perfect, the entire place is stunned into silence from the UML goal. This is when we strike, Jamie and I stand up and start cheering, and not just cheering so that the people around us could hear. The entire arena got to experience our enthusiasm :) I was wearing my UML hockey jersey and screaming up a storm, Jamie has the loudest sports cheer/taunt voice ever and used it to it's full ability. We were in the last row of our section It was a Riverhawk trifecta.
The entire arena is staring at us and getting angry now, we ended up cheering a nice long time, we start getting yelled at and 'gestured' at but we just cheered louder. I love Jamie's ability to be so incredibly loud at these sporting events, I love him even more for liking the Riverhawks just because I like them.
UMaine ended up scoring and we got taunted, they scored again, we got taunted more, they scored a third time, we were taunted, they scored a fourth time on an empty net and the place erupted. So, UMaine won 4-1. Maybe next year.


4 Month Check-up

So Ajax got more shots at his doctors visit last Friday. He was a little out of sorts for a couple days but was back to his old self by Monday. He weighted in at 16 lbs 2 oz and was 26 inches!! The doctor said because he is growing so much to hold off feeding him food until he starts giving us signs that he is interested.

He has been smiling and laughing all the time now. Jamie can get him to laugh sometimes just by looking at him. It's so much fun in the morning before we go to work, the three of us sit in the living room and he is in a great mood and we get lots of giggles. Recently he sticks his tongue out when he's happy just like I used to do when I was a baby.

Last night we set up an Easter photo shoot with Ajax. It was hilarious all the props we had gotten and how cute he was. He is probably going to be so embarrassed by these pictures when he grows up but that's what you get when you are such a cute baby!

This weekend we are going up to UMaine to watch the UML vs UMaine hockey game. It should be a great time and I'm looking forward to cheering on the Riverhawks.
Here are some of the pictures of our cute little bunny!


Tears of Joy

Ok, honestly almost peed my pants from these. Tears running down my face and choking on my laughs. I can't even handle this level of funny!!
