Volcano Nose and Christmas Weekend

First off, we had a wonderful Christmas. Nice and quiet, just like I like it. Dakin got a lot of wonderful gifts: a pet puppy (the kind that looks like it's sleeping--it breathes even!) that Dakin named "Question Mark" and will deign to brush occasionally, some play-doh stuff, a rotating light lamp from his girlfriend in Utah, DVDs from his aunt, a mini globe, a carousel music box (he loves merry-go-rounds), beautiful pillowcases from his great-grandma, some neat projector flashlights, 2 cars and lots more. I think, though, the most exciting one is the one Nana got for him (and he doesn't even know what it is yet!!): tickets for us to see the Imagination Movers in concert, and to attend the meet-and-greet following the concert! That will be awesome...more to come on that.

Now for Volcano Nose. I don't think he's fighting off a cold because he hasn't had a fever, but boy howdy, the secretions have been non-stop. He's never been junky like this--even to his nose dripping. Of course, the nose dripping is a great source of amusement to him, and he has dubbed his snotty nose "volcano nose". He enjoys trying to make it erupt too--he laughs so hard when he blows his nose and gets snot out. Hilarious, right? Yeah.

Anyhoo, it was a wonderful weekend. We hope everyone had an equally wonderful one!!

Hope his nose gets cleared up, but how funny that he enjoys it so much. I love the name he gave his dog! And my youngest daughter LOVES Imagination Movers and would be totally jealous of your little guy, but that sounds so amazing for him.

Maybe you'll get ot meet Scott Durbin and inform him that Dakin is the one that was in the email I was talking to him about. Hope he remembers.

hey just a thought, but when Sky grows fast he will get a larger leak around his trach, and this is something he will do if it is too big, blow snot out his nose. I guess it would be the upside to getting a cold or being sick! Praying it is nothing and he will be just fine, there are so many sick people and kids out there right now, its kinda scary!
