***My sweet first baby had to go to the vet yesterday. She continued to freeze when it was time to go up the stairs to our apartment. Luckily we live in an elevator building so it is not necessary that she climb the stairs, we just normally do it (when we don't have the stroller) for exercise. Anyways, her dog walker said she started crying when she was rolling around with her best friend Chloe. I called the vet and they asked me to bring her in. I bundled up Baby J, put a leash on Daisy and headed out with the Bugaboo and walked everyone to the vet. We were quite the sight! The vet examined Daisy (she nipped at the tech when he put her on the table---she has NEVER done that before so I know she must have REALLY been in pain) and had me walk her a little outside. He says that he is pretty sure it is just a pulled muscle. She was given a shot and is on partial bed rest. =) She can only go outside to do her business and no dog walker for one week! Poor baby! I also had the vet check Daisy's ears as she had been rubbing them the past few days. She had not one, but TWO ear infections. He said dogs with floppy ears like hers often get infections. So, one exam, one shot, two bottles of drops, and $170.00 later...we now know what is wrong with our sweet girl. I'm so glad I took her in and had her checked. Baby J was an angel and slept the whole time! ***

***I am so excited! I am going home for Easter...for a WEEK! A, Baby J and I are leaving on Good Friday and heading to my parent's beach house on the Florida Panhandle. My Dad will FINALLY get to meet his Grandbaby. My younger brother and sister are coming too. It will be the first time all of us have been together since Christmas and the first time ever to all be with our new addition. A is flying back to NYC on Monday, but I'm staying until Friday. Yep, that means that on the way home I'm on my own with Baby J! Should be interesting. I can do it though. Right? Any tips?***

***They were filming a new romantic comedy with Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker outside my apartment on Wednesday night! They did a scene in our little pizza place on the corner. The movie is called "Did You Hear About the Morgans" and is set to release on Dec 18th. The only "star" I saw was Elisabeth Moss. No Hugh or SJP. So sad. I did get a few cool pics though. I'll post soon.***

I received a sample of the Buxom Dolly lip gloss from Sephora with my last order and I LOVE it! It has that little tingle and the color is great!

***Today, I went to a Babybites New Mom luncheon. They had a mini photoshoot with a professional photographer for us, complete with a makeup touch up. I'll post some pics when we get the code. I had SO much fun meeting other Upper East Side Moms. I was also invited to take part in a Mommy Discussion Group at a local hospital. It is for Moms of babies born in Jan and Feb. It last for 5 weeks so hopefully I will get to make even more new friends. I'm so excited and I'm so proud of myself for trying all this new stuff! Gotta go out there and make some friends for Baby J and I to hang out with. ***

**Update on prayer requests**

*Please add my sister to your list. She is having some medical problems and will need more testing done.

*Wilson has his first round of chemo tomorrow. They think think they will have to do chemo for 9 weeks. Yesterday, they took him to get his hair shaved since it would be falling out. His AWESOME Mom decided instead of a buzz cut that this cool kid deserved a mohawk! His mom is also a photographer so she is documenting his journey. She requested some hats for him to wear and I would love to send him one. Anyone have any good ideas for a 5 year old boy? (I've never met him, but he is my husband's best friend's nephew and I really want to do something for him.)

* My classmates funeral was today. Please keep her family in your prayers.

*S leaves for Germany tomorrow! Please keep her in your prayers for a good flight and while I know she will have a heavy heart leaving family and friends, I hope she remembers all the excitement that is to come.


*My Dad passed a follow up stress test!! He is on the road to recovery!

*Baby J had a WONDERFUL day today. Thanks for all of the suggestions about everything. If things don't improve I'm thinking about cutting dairy out of my diet (I'm breastfeeding so I can't switch formulas as some of you suggested.) I asked my pediatrician about it and he said he didn't think I needed to do that at this point, but I am certainly willing to try if that might be what is causing some of his problems. I'm thinking about doing an infant massage class. Has anyone done one of those?

So glad to hear Daisy is doing better.

One Fabulous Mom had a great post on flying with kids. It was geared more toward toddlers but you may want to check it out.
