Well we are VERY late in posting about Christmas. I am getting a little waylaid by trying to keep up with all the communication tools (i.e. myspace, facebook, etc.). But I'll get caught up eventually. So a quick report on Christmas. We had Hohweiler Christmas at our house this year. It was a great time although on Christmas Eve we noticed that Cole was coughing a little. He suffered through the holiday weekend and by the time we got to the pediatrician's office on Monday he had full blown RSV. (For those of you w/o kids, that is baby bronchitus. Cole was born right in the middle of RSV season so the hospital warned us about it when we brought him home b/c 90% of the time kids have to be hospitalized and receive breathing treatments to recover). Our pediatrician was wonderful and said that he looked like a good fighter so she would wait on the hospitalization. So he made it through on his own and recovered beautifully. And I got a crash course in sick baby - it was pretty scary but you learn fast and quickly are an expert at bulb syringes and rectal thermometers.
