We've just gone and spent a week in the wilds of the Jersey shore, where the supermarkets are as large as a Home Depot, one must use a car to travel, and shopping involves a steady diet of strip malls and chain stores. Still, it was luxurious because we didn't have to leave the house to get some sun (big windows!) and we had our very own non-coin-operated washer and dryer. We gorged ourselves on the Food channel (me) and HGTV (Derek), since we don't have cable at home, and generally enjoyed playing house. It was lovely to get out of our small apartment and do the sleep-nurse-fuss-play-sleep routine with different scenery and better air.
Little D is having some trouble with reflux. He gets upset after feeding, which can be heartbreaking, but there are blissful feedings now and then where he doesn't cry. This makes me think we can work towards more comfort for the rest, so we're troubleshooting. There's a learning curve, though.
On the up side, he loves to be on the changing table. He bicycles his legs and bats his arms and stares at whatever entertainment we have nearby. At the shore, this was a skylight. At home, it's a Whoozit. And wherever we are, it's our faces, which we contort into various expressions in order to elicit the half-grin that D gives us when he's amused. It's a blast.
It amazes me that D is already growing out of clothes. He swam in everything we had at the beginning. There are three stretchies that don't fit anymore. He'll be six weeks old on Wednesday.
