First Tuck

Ok, you may think I'm a little nuts to post this, but I'm going to anyhow. It's my blog after all and nobody is forcing anyone to read my ramblings. I use my blog to record events (sometimes you don't even realize I'm doing it) that matter to me. Anyhow, tonight's big event was tucking Gaetano in bed for the first time. Today the front rail was taken off his crib, making it a day bed.

Ambrogio tucked him in, and an hour later he fell out of bed. He cried for about 10 minutes, watched some TV, and then asked me to take him back to bed. This time I got to tuck him in and it was so, so sweet. An hour later, he fell out of bed again! Awwwww :-( I put down some cushion and a stuffed animal is behind his back so if he goes to roll he'll be okay. Tucking him in his first bed was one of those sweet mama moments. Comforting him is something I wish I never had to do, but I'm so glad I'm able.

Being sick is definitely affecting my typing. I'm making so many typos lately. I'm even making dumb grammatical errors. We all know my typing is horrible, but I usually proofread well enough to catch my goofs. My apologies to those who've had to endure my bad typing today. Hopefully I'll feel better soon!

Buraglia's and Bertone's

Buraglia's are just popping up out of the woodworks lately! I think it's something to do with how easily I'm found on Google. (I've gotten some email in addition to the comments I approved.) It really is a small world...

I'm interested in hearing from my family too though, so I better start mentioning Bertone here occasionally if I ever want to be found. ;-) I have a lot of family I've never met or have not seen in many years. Italian families can be so stubborn, and just stop talking for years for no real good reason. Here's hoping that it doesn't last forever.

Chicken and Steak

"Chicken is good, but I like steak." ~Gaetano, to my mother as he munched on chicken.

Long Time No Post...

It's been awhile since I've posted anything here and the last few messages have been pretty brief. I figured since I was approving a comment to my previous post I'd make a new one while I'm here.

I'm recovering fairly well from the surgery. I caught a cold/flu on Sunday and despite medication, I have gotten progressively worse. I've been having some pain in my lower right abdomen and if it persists I'll go back to the ER again. Let's hope not!

I've been busy as can be, but I'll try and start posting more often. My apologies for my absense, but I think I have a pretty good excuse. :-)

Been Home

I've been home since Tuesday night, I just forgot to blog. I'm feeling real sore still but getting better each day. I've lots of work to do, but not enough energy to get caught up yet. I'm trying though...

Gall Bladder...

I don't have a gall bladder anymore. At least I have a decent dialup here in the hospital...

Potty Training

He did it!!! :-) (Sorry to those of you who come here to read about Dreawmweaver stuff...) It's been one whole year since Gaetano has gone potty on the toilet. He only went "number 1" once before and "number 2" a couple days later. This time, he went "number 1" twice within an hour! I'm so proud!
