Splish Splash!

It has been a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.

Thursday we had a most excellent trip to Story Time at the library. The boys had a great time and we can't wait to go again every Thursday. Evan was so focused and enthralled by the librarian that he barely noticed all the other babies around him. Cameron was too shy to let go of me and turn to face the room so he watched over his shoulder with a big smile on his face. Their favorite part is when everyone sings together and claps their hands.

Friday we got to hang out with Daddy who came home early from work and went for a long walk with the dogs. Saturday we were really off our naps but decided to make a trip to Toys R Us for our new Super Yard and then a stroll around the mall. Sunday we played in our very own lagoon for the first time. We dressed them up in their patriotic swim shorts, rash shirts and sun hats and dipped their little toes in the chilly water. THEY LOVED IT! Drying off in a sun warmed towel was fun too. Then the best part of the day was that got a surprise visit from our favorite cousins Tim and Lucy and Uncle Chris. We had such a great time hanging out, going to the park, letting the dogs run free off leash in the tennis courts and watching Tim and Lucy ride around on their new bikes. That night the boys slept through the night without so much as a peep, though they still woke up at 4am.

And today is Uncle Mike's birthday so we drove up to Baltiomre and had a birthday dinner at Red Robbin. The boys loved sitting in the big boy highchairs and really loved when everyone sang Happy Birthday to Uncle Mike.

Our only down side to this weekend is that today Evan has started throwing up bile about every two to three hours again, and this time I'm pretty sure the tube is in the proper place. I don't think it's a virus because he's not throwing up any formula (we've been feeding him through the gastric tube for two weeks now) and he's throwing up large amounts of very dark strong smelling green bile. I guess a virus is possible since its been a week since were last in the ER and he could have picked something up there but it seems unlikely because of the lack of formula. It's like the bile is bypassing the formula on it's way up, and that makes no sense at all.

In any case here are some of the pictures from this week.

what cute pictures!!!!

Ok - Walgreens and most stores should have these. They are called SeaBands and they are one size fits all. There is a a diagram that shows you were to position it. Put 3 fingers across the babies wrist (babie's fingers) and you put the plastic ball in the middle of where the third finger falls. You'll understand when you see the diagram. They cost about $10. GI doc thinks it's worth a try and may be helping for sure. we'll be going back for the medical acupuncture on thrusday, so he'll have the sticker-needles again.
Have any of the doc's brought up motility issues for your boys? GOD FORBID..but I just wonder. My doc said today that he has a 9 mo old baby boy he's going to have tested since he's still vomiting with a J, for "reflux". I was just wondering if they even think it would pertain to your kiddos. Sorry to even bring it up.
Hope you find the bands and they help a bit!!!!
