I know - I'm a slacker!! This one's for you Liz!!

Ok, I have been totally slacking lately. I did not realize it had been since Christmas when I posted last. We had company over New Years until the 5th of January. Justin's mom and Grandmother came to visit us and meet Ryan. It was not long after that my son decided to be a major crabby pants. It started out just in the evening time (from about 6-9) and by the last couple of weeks was going from about 10 AM until 8 or 9 PM (sometimes later). He would just scream all day long. When I took him in for his 2 month checkup a week ago the Dr. said he is pretty sure that my baby has Reflux. He prescribed some baby Zantac and said to let him know if we didn't see any improvement. I tried for 2 days to get Ryan to swallow his medicine with no luck. I called the Dr. back to see if there was a trick to it, and they called in a different medicine. Now he is on Axid and it seems to be helping some.

He is up to 10 lbs 3 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. Our little spider mondey is getting so big.

He also had to have his shots. It was horrible. He was not a happy camper anyway so that just made it worse.

He was having one of his screaming fits when the Dr. came in and he asked me how long this had been going on. I asked him if he meant this meltdown or overall. Overall 5-6 weeks. He just looked at me and said "I can't believe how sane you look for someone with such a fussy baby". I just responded, "this is just his 1st meltdown of the day. Give me few hours and my appearance will change" !!

I will try to be a little more current on my blogs, but if you want to see hundreds of pictures (literally 400+) check out my Facebook.

Just a few more pics:

YAY! Thank you! I hated shots, too. I couldn't watch.

I buried my face next to his and just kissed his cheek over and over the whole time. I think I had more tears than he did.
