A Trip and a UGI

This weekend I took my first trip with Ian. We went and stayed overnight at Aunt Melissa and Uncle John's shore house. We had fun. Saturday night he was a doll, and even stayed up until 8:00pm with no protesting. Things began to slide slowly downhill in terms of the crankiness factor from there. I personally had a good time though. I learned how to play Mah-Jong (the real way, not the computer way) and how to say "Hello little red one" in Japanese. I ate some Johnson's Carmel Corn (drool. so. good.) and drank some wine. I talked with adults. However, all good things must come to an end, and they quickly did on the drive home where Ian screamed his head off for 61 minutes. Ick.

Ian became a different baby over the weekend. All of a sudden he wants to be into everything. If he can reach it, he has it. He's even trying to scooch a little to get to things. I also caught him trying to pull the camera off of the table with his foot. He shakes his head "no" constantly now. He also wants to be on the floor a lot. No complete rolling over, but lots of rolling onto his side. I think the complete rolling is not far behind, now that he has the desire to grab things.

UGI = Upper GI scan. This morning we went to St. Christopher's to have his scan done. The experience was hellish. Lots of crying on his part. But we did find out that there are no anatomical issues that are contributing to his reflux. That's a good thing. Tomorrow we are off to the pediatrician for his 6 month well visit.

Also wanted to say sorry for the lack of pictures lately. Now that Ian does the whol closing eyes for the camera flash thing, it's hard to get good pictures. I have a few on the camera to post later. :) Posted by Picasa
