An afternoon at the park

We try to head to the park at least once a week, where Addison can get a little new scenery in the playground arena...McGucken Park is one of her favorites. This week, one of Addison's buddies met us up there, and Quenton was able to flirt with his girlfriend a little...

Unfortunately, Addison got a busted lip during all of the excitement.

A Family stroll...

We decided to take a family stroll a couple of days a go. There is a path down the road from us for bikes and walking...and it was actually quite relaxing! Addison had fun picking flowers, and Quenton sat back chilling out, like always! It has been such beautiful weather lately, we couldn't pass it up!

Jae and I came home from date night Saturday to find that the babysitter had given Addison a new style...french braids. She absolutely loved them! Good thing I know how to do them, or we'd be in trouble - she's asked for them everyday since then...

You know, I never thought my sweet little girl would be big enough to have french braids, it's crazy how quickly time flies by us...

Quenton update...

Alright...so we went BACK to the doctor yesterday for Quenton's stomach, for the 5th time. My poor sweet boy just can't seem to shake his tummy problems. We started with Zantac, which worked for about 3 weeks. Then we upped his dosage, which did not work. Next, on to Prevacid (a pill that dissolves in his little mouth). Also, we are giving him Maalox, like a little old man. We have changed his formula to a more sensitive brand, that promises to help with spitting up. Now, after upping the dosage on the Prevacid for two weeks, and then trying to ween him back down (which is not working)...we decided to head back to the pediatrician for our next step.

So, the doctor now says his "best case scenario" is severe reflux. He is sending us to a pediatric GI for a scope of his esophagus to make sure that we aren't missing anything. Poor little guy.

But, as an update...he is weighing in at a whopping 16 lbs, 6 oz...which is the 50th percentile (much better than his 13 lbs, 10 oz from 4 weeks ago - which was the 22nd percentile) I don't have his new height, but will in one month at his 6 month checkup.

He is eating oatmeal and rice cereal, juice, prunes, bananas, pears, peas, green beans, carrots, and squash. He is rolling over both ways, reaching for toys and playing with them, taking his pacifier out and putting it back in, and sleeping from about 9:00pm until 6:00am with the occasional wake-up around 4:00am to get some more Maalox.

So, hopefully we will have a positive outcome at the GI...I will keep you posted.

My new blinka-blinka

Okay, so for our 4th anniversary, I told Jae that I wanted another band for my engagement ring...I already had one, but wanted another one just like it to go on the top. So, down at Rucker, there is this great jeweler, and we made a little visit. Unfortunately, it was going to be hard to find a band that matched mine EXACTLY, so we started looking at other options...and this is what I ended up with! YEAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! I LOVE it! Thank you honey!

Oh, also, when I got home, I showed Addie and got yet another funny comment...

Mommy: "Addie, look what daddy got me!"

Addie: "ooooh, mommy...you got new blinka-blinka???"

Mommy: "yep, Addie...new blinka-blinka"

Addie: "I want to put it on." (she puts it on her pointer finger and says) "look mommy...I'm a mommy now!"

She is so stinking hilarious!
