Baby's First Scan

Published 9/6/2008

Baby's First ScanWell, the Trillos -- Daddy, Mommy, and Big Brother -- headed over to the imaging place to get our first looks at the new baby.

I like how we'd ask stuff like -- "Are those the legs?" "Is that a hand?" and we'd get corrected...changing the mentioned appendage to I guess the more clinically correct term..."bud". Wouldn't want people to get their hope up too much, I guess.

Well, even though it's too early to know the sex of the baby, we do have a better sense of how hold the baby is -- 9.6 weeks -- and when we should expect to meet the baby in person -- January 26, 2008. (I know Geof's hoping the baby will come a day earlier so he'll have a twin to share his birthday...not to mention, another reason for Aimee to celebrate on Burn's Night.)

One Bump in the Road

Published 9/6/2008

So, I went to my first appointment with Dr. Tzeng, only to discover that he's retired from the baby delivery business. :o( Bummer! He'll see me for the first trimester but after that I'll need to transfer another doctor, Dr. Navi (who I believe was the back-up doc in case Dr. Tzeng wasn't available when it came time for Parker to be delivered).

Oh well, in the meantime, the baby seems to be doing fine. Dr. Tzeng is thinking that the baby may be due a little earlier than what my normal doc, Dr. Sheh, predicted. But he'll have me get a sonogram to a better reading on the baby.

Go Baby, Go!

Published 9/6/2008

So, our suspicions have been confirm. We're pregnant and looking to have our second child early next year...probably early February.

Now I just have to get in to see the OB-GYN who delivered Parker, Dr.Tzeng, and get us started on the string necessary appointments. At least this time, it's a bit more ''old hat'' with less questions in the air.

2008 Company Picnic

2008 Company PicnicThis year the company picnic was at a Trillo family favorite...Santa Anita. No horses were racing but there's was enough to keep us entertained in the infield, including bumper cars, jungle gyms, and pony rides. It could have used a bit more shade but there's was enough food to keep me content. :o)

Best Friends

So, within a few days, Dean finally realizes that he has nothing to fear in Frankie and the two become quick friends who enjoy wrestling and chasing each other around the house. And that's a good thing because Dean has too much teen kitty energy for me...especially around 3am. So anything Frankie can do to tire him out is greatly appreciated.

There's nothing like a lollipop and stickers to take away the pain of a doctor's visit.

On a related note, you know what's the best way to get you in and out of a doctor's appointment with minimal wait -- both in the waiting room and in the exam room? Bring an hysterical kid. We were done with the appointment probably within 15-20 minutes of us walking into the doctor's office.

Day 3: No Love for Frankie

Hello!Who's a cutie pie?!

Yup, Dean's doing well as the newest member of the Trillo family. His current domain is the master bathroom which gives him plenty of place to roam, with out giving him a run of the house.

Day 3Of course, that also means he's safe out of Frankie's reach. Sorry pup. You'll have to wait a little longer for Dean to gain more trust in you.

Love is NOT in the air

Day 2:  Love is NOT in the airDay 2:  Love is NOT in the airDay 2 and, unfortunately for Frankie, love is not in the air. Dean puffs up, not willing to trust the dog that sits on the other side of the gate.

Check out that tail. It's like three or four times it's normal size.

Day 2:  New FriendsDay 2:  New FriendsDean and Parker, on the other hand, have become fast friends. Each loving the other's high level of energy. Just watch out for those claws, Parker.

Day 2:  New FriendsSeriously, how can Dean not trust this face?

Welcome Dean

Welcome Dean!Parker welcomes the newest member of our rat pack...Dean. Frankie, unfortunately has to wait as it's a bit too soon for dog-cat introductions.
Lost and Found
When you can't find the cat...check the drawers. Some how Dean climbed up from the laundry hamper up into the cabinetry. Looks like I need to clear out this drawer.
