Do Gators Fly?

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been in a blogging funk. Hopefully it will pass, or is passing, and you'll see more of what's going on with us. Or, just my own personal rants ;-)

We've had a busy past few weeks. First, our friend Mike Cooley came to stay with us while he was in town for work. After he left, Bob's parents came for a quick visit. And, after they left, Bobby's eight cousins all came to see him for the first time. I will blog more about that soon. It was wonderful seeing everyone! I think Bobby was entertained by all of his cousins. He sat in his bouncy seat, looking around at them for most of the time. Maybe this is why it's easier to have the 2nd, 3rd, etc... child? Who knows? Anyhow, Bob and I were joking around yesterday and we stated that Hotel Ross is closed for the month of August! I think we've had more days of people staying with us, then alone, since Bobby's arrival. Crazy, right?

Last week, Bobby also had his first cold. It was not bad at all. It started with his cry sounding a bit raspy, and then he had a stuffy nose, and some coughing. Little Noses Saline got rid of the stuffy nose, and a humidifier took care of everything else. Now, the new thing is his pooping! He is only pooping every 4 days or so. I am guessing he's just become an infrequent stooler (nice, huh?) due to his formula intake. I am slowly transitioning a little bit of formula into his diet. We've already tried two different brands, and seem to have found one that is working for us. He takes after his dad, and has a sensitive tummy. We are using Similac Sensitive. It seems to be doing fine, with the exception of his lack of bowel movements. The pediatrician says some babies only poop once a week! So, I guess we'll see if it gets better or worse.

Oh, and do Gators fly?

Bobby fell asleep yesterday in his bouncy seat. If you are familiar with newborns, you know they can startle quite easily. Well, he heard a noise and raised his arms like that, as a reflex. It's actually called the Moro Reflex. He slept like this with his arms up for a couple of minutes so I could snap a picture. Too funny, right?!?! Anyhow, daddy dressed Bobby yesterday, and of course, he put him in a Gator onesie. This was given to us by a friend, Lindsey Adams. Thanks Lindsey, we love it! Besides, we can't wait for the season to start September 5th!

One last thing, Happy Belated Birthday to my beautiful sister! I wish I could have been there to celebrate with you. And, your gift is going to be late! (everything is, these days). :-) Also, Happy Belated Anniversary to my wonderful parents-in-law. Love all you guys!
