It wasn’t great being sick today… But I got to watch the Red Sox opening day ceremonies as the players got their World Series rings – that was awesome! Seeing Bill Buckner get a standing ovation as he threw out the first pitch was amazing. He cried and so did I. But the highlight of the day was when Manny Ramirez tripled and without being prompted, my daughter Mia clapped! 14 months old and already rooting for the right team 🙂 I love being a dad!

Mia said her first word last week: Pa…pa. That’s right, Papa!!!! She only says it when she sees me. Being a dad is the best!!!

Mia got her second round of shots today. I think it hurt me more than it hurt her (I’ve officially become one of those parents). At least it was a tie. We both cried. Mommy cried. We were a mess. It was easier than the 2 months shots (those were brutal). What was great is that the Dr. said Mia looks and acts like a 6 month old! I love being a dad!
