Wow. Michelle Obamas ball dress is gorgeous!! I took pics of Ollie in his bouncy seat in front of the TV during the swearing in. I'm getting a paper tomorrow to keep for him, along with the one from the day he was born.

On an Ollie note, we've started giving him pear huice 2x a day to help him poo. His fidh came in today and he seemed to like it.. We'll see. It's kind of ugly, LOL.

With McGee the Monster
Playing with the Rockn' Bop guitar

Talking to Daddy

Eating McGee while swingin'

Watching NCIS in the Bumbo! Look how well I sit up!

Ollie had his first vaccines today :( I'm pretty sure he did better than I did.. Since we're doing Dr. Bob's delayed schedule (It's from "The Vaccine Book" by Robert Sears), he only got DTaP and rotovirus and goes back next month for HiB and PnC. He gobbled the rotovirus vaccine (weirdo kid) and did ok for the shot, cried after, but when we cuddled him, was ok. He is 11lbs 6 oz and 23 inches, which moves him up into the 15th percentile, almost (he was in the 5th when he was born, so he's catching up slowly!). Oh, Dr M also gave us the go ahead to put the dark Karo syrup in all his bottles, hopefully getting his poo's to be better. He said once we start him on baby food (especially fruits) it should help, as well. Next appointment (which is March to see him) we'll talk about starting him on rice cereal! I can't believe he's almost 3 months old... that's a quarter of a year! That's a long time!

As for Doug & I... we think the fridge may be leaking, oh joys! It's supposed to get really cold tonight into this weekend, so we're staying in as much as possible.

I just bought Ollie these (OH, I love ebay!)

I got the ugly fish because he LOVES staring at the fish on his swing, which are brightly colored. We'll see if he likes this one as well...

And the puppy because he "stole" his daddy's stuffed dog. Hopefully one of them will like the new one :)

First, our computer was broken, which accounts fir the lack of posts...

So hopefully I don't jinx myself, but Wed night, Olliver got up at 12:30, 3:30 and 6:30. Last night it was 12, 4 and 7ish (I wasn't actually here, but Doug fed him around then). Heck, I can deal with that!

Christmas was good. He definitely gets overstimluated easily and needs a dark place to calm down.. He got really cranky several times :/ I did too, but thats a different story. Thankfully "pass the baby" didn't get played too much. Dr M told us to be careful since his first round of vax aren't til mid-Jan and it's cold/flu/RSV season. I'm sure people got mad at me, but sorry, my Ollie and his health come before pleasing people :P

Oh, he's been having major poo problems. He'll just wail and wail and nothing really comforts him until he's worn himself out. We've been putting Karo syrup in his bottle 2x a day, but it only makes the poo stinkier. I need to call the peds back on Monday if it;s not better - that'll be 5 days of trying it. Yesterday he pooed around 7am and that was it until 4am! It was a lot, but still, thats not good.
