Sing Us A Song......

You're the piano man.....Sing us a song tonight....... Colin was in a good mood today after being cranky for the past 5 days (which is why we haven't blogged). He seems to go in cycles as in the beginning of the week he is in a great mood until about Thursday and he remains cranky until Monday morning....Weird...... Here is a little video....

Here is a picture of Colin passed out in his crib in his new PJ's. Mommy is the freak who puts the socks on him...He sort of looks like one of his grandpa's (papa) in those black socks....

Playing Ball

Yesterday after Colin's therapy, Nanna and I started playing catch with Colin with his big ball. After a few tosses, he started belly laughing. Of course when we got the camera out he didn't laugh quite as much but here is a look.....

Colin The Celebrity

Tim and I didn't realize that Colin's blog still has the following that it had when he was in Boston. Recently, everyone I see tells me they are still checking out the blog and following Colin's journey. We even had a complete stranger recognize Colin from his blog (she is a friend of a friend and said she would recognize those cheeks anywhere!!) Lucky for us that we get to smooch them all the time. Uncle Alex and Aunt Jamee bought this shirt for Colin and it's definetely true!!

You are definetely a big deal Colin!!!

Colin is Feeling Better!!

Colin is feeling much better-we are sooo relieved!! He got rid of all of his excess fluid with just his regular diuretics-thank God!! Tim and I were starting to get nervous thinking we may end up back in the hospital. Thanks to Dr. K for helping us out (as always). Tim called him at 6 am on Friday morning when Colin had his terrible temp and his wife answered his cell phone (sorry Mrs. K!) but, of course he called us right back. We tried to go a month without seeing Dr. K but, only lasted 2 weeks-I think Colin missed him!!

I know this is late but, I didn't get a chance to post since I've been sick but, I wanted to say Happy Father's Day to Tim. He is the best daddy in the world to Colin and somehow manages to work full-time and always be with us when we need him most. We love you Daddy! And Colin says Happy Father's Day to Papa who always gets up early with him to watch the Wiggles when he sleeps over his house and Grandpa who always takes him for long walks and Uncle Brian (The Godfather) who drove all the way to Syracuse to see him when he was in the hospital just a few weeks after cousin Kaylee was born. Colin loves you all!

Mommy is grateful to Nanna for staying with us this week since Mommy had a bad cold and didn't want to be around Colin too much so he wouldn't get it and Grandma for cleaning her house for her. (I should get sick more often!!)

I just want to take a second to brag about Colin. Yesterday, his Occupational Therapist told me that even if Colin is sick or exhausted (which is the case most days) he still works harder than any other kid she works with. He has been such a sick kid for so long and his heart is still not functioning properly but, he still pushes himself. I know that he's a tough kid but, it's so nice to hear other people say it. It's that fight that is going to get him better. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you Colin!!

Happy Fathers Day!!!

So this past weekend has not been Colin's best which is the reason for the delayed posts. It started on Thursday, Colin was extremely cranky and it continued through the night. We thought it was molars so we let him crank. Anyways at about 2 in the morning we had enough of him sleeping for 15 minutes and then crying for 15 minutes. We took him downstairs to give him a bath because he was extremely warm, and when we checked his temp, he was 105.8 warm. We quickly gave him a bath to cool him off. On Friday we went to the pediatrician for blood work, and then to Dr. K's office. Heart looked the same and figured he just had a virus. So over the weekend, he has been sweating like crazy all night, and really hasn't been peeing with the diuretics. He has started to look a bit puffy so we are now concerned. He hasn't been cranky, just tired (he has been sleeping great). Last night he even fell asleep in his jumper. Take a look.....

He still managed to have some fun as Nanna and Grandpa Domanico were in town this weekend and Papa and Grandma Corsello came over for dinner Friday night to celebrate Daddy's B-Day. Thanks to Sue for making a great cake....

Call of the Wild????

Take a listen to Colin tonight while he should have been sleeping. Careful not to have the volume up to high...... This is his teething cry before a tooth pops through....

PS - Shortly after this video was shot, Colin got a dose of Tylenol....

Hot Fun in the Summer Time.....

So today daddy and I are spending the day together because mommy has a shower and bachelorette party to go to. We have had so much fun and the house is trashed......Note the sign on the door I left to warn mommy.....
Anyways, since it is 93 degrees out and humid, daddy bought me a pool for me to wade in the backyard. So after filling it up, putting sunscreen on me, and dressing me up, we ventured off to the backyard for a swim..... Well, I didn't really care for it and basically froze like a popsicle in it because the water was on the cold side......Daddy didn't let it warm up before tossing me in...... Here are some of the pictures from my polar swim......
So the question is, are either of my grandpas going to see me swimming in this dinky pool and decides that I need a BIG in-ground pool so I can swim on a raft with a virgin banana colada HINT HINT......
