Happy Holidays

It's been a while and we know some of you have still been checking for any updates..... First of all, thanks for the thoughts and prayers.... Secondly, many of you know that Melanie is due for our second son, Drew Colin Domanico, on Feb. 1st. She is doing well and so far everything looks great. We have had every test/scan possible but, no amniocentesis. In talking with our friend Terri the other day, she convinced me to post an update regarding Drew and she wanted to see a 3D picture. As you can see in the photo, Drew looks a lot like Colin even though his hand is blocking much of his face. The holiday season has been going by really fast. Melanie and I went to Florida for Thanksgiving for a much needed break. Plus we really didn't feel like celebrating with everyone without Colin. So we spent turkey day laying on the beach in Siesta Key and going to Boston Market for a Thanksgiving dinner. It was great... We wish we could do the same for Christmas. Colin's memorial mass was perfect... A great tribute to a perfect boy. There was about 300 people who showed to celebrate his life. We had a great party afterwards downstairs with great food donated from friends and local businesses. Colin's grave was all decorated for Halloween and is really decorated for Christmas. We miss him so much but, we also know and feel that he is with us all the time. I guess we may be doing a blog for Drew but, it won't be the stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, Happy Holidays.

Colin Charles Domanico 8/31/06 - 9/21/08

This is a post that I dreaded that I would never have to make... I have no quirky lines... On Sunday September 21, 2008, Colin passed away at home. His heart had all it could take and decided to rest. Melanie and I want to thank all of you for experiencing this journey with us on the blog. Your support through comments were truly uplifting and inspiring. We also want to thank his doctors for never giving up on him and giving him as much as a life as possible, especially Dr. Kvesilis. As a final note for the blog, I created a video of his life. The pictures will stream by fast, but as you can imagine it is hard to cram so many photo's of our little boy into a 4 minute song...... If you would like to contact us, you can leave a post on the blog as we will check it from time to time or you can email me at Colin is now at peace with god with no pain, walking, eating, smiling, laughing, and growing.....All the things he had such a difficult time with battling here with us. Melanie and I have now taken his pain and he is free. He is up in heaven with his Great Grandma Agnes playing board games....Talking and eating baked goods with his Great Grandma Marge....Playing with a cap gun that his Little Great Grandpa Domanico got for him.....and waking up to his Big Great Grandpa Bould singing "Good Morning Mr. Zip Zip Zip.............Mommy and I love you so much Colin......

A Weekend Of Football.....

Colin had an action packed weekend of football, both college and pro. On Saturday he watched a pitiful Syracuse Orange football team get whipped by Akron...They have hit rock bottom so he may not wear the jersey too much as he can't take the ribbing from his Uncle Brian (an avid Uconn Husky fan). Here is the photo:

(PS - Thanks to Uncle Alex and Aunt Jamee for the jersey)

Then today, me and Colin dressed up in our Buffalo Bills uni's for their first game of the season against Seattle. Well, for the first time in Colin's life, the Bills won the opener. Colin was excited as he wore his new Trent Edwards (QB) jersey. Daddy still has his old McGahee jersey until he gets to the store to buy a new one.

Colin's Birthday Party

Sunday was Colin's second birthday party. We had a party at our house for Colin and he got a lot of really nice gifts. The weather was perfect and the food was good. Instead of putting on pictures, I wanted to make a video of Colin's year starting with his first birthday. It is a little over 3 minutes long and has music to it so watch the volume on your speakers if you are at work. Oh yea the pictures at the end are from his party....Happy 2nd birthday buddy......

PS - The video is fixed now... I had it marked as private....
