Speaking of "breaking" things....4.5 miles is more than enough for a maiden voyage for mommy! I am feelin' it today!!Whew!!But we had a great time. It was a beautiful day! Scout slept the entire time; and it is NOT a smooth path by any means. But it didn't seem to bother him at all.
Also....we had our first appointment with our new pediatrician...DR.SHUMAKER!!!Whoo-hoo!!We absolutely love her!! Soooo much different than our last doc! She is just what we wanted in a doctor! Scout loves her,too!He is 26 inches long,weighs 17 lbs. and is in the 90th percentile again!!!He's a hoss! He had to get 4 shots today though! Poor baby!!! He only screamed for like 10 seconds and then he was fine. However, by the time we got home from the grocery store and I decided he needed to try sweet potatoes......he had had it proceeded to MELT DOWN COMPLETELY!!! I dont mean he cried for a little while....I mean he screamed at the top of his lungs... body completely rigid.... tears streaming down both cheeks....full on MELT DOWN! I was beyond frazzled! This child never cries.So you can imagine I was freaked out beyond the telling of it!!I had barely put the groceries up when he started this so once I finally got him calmed down and asleep AN HOUR LATER...I went to go put the rest of the things up and realized I had left out two frozen (now thawed) pizzas and a lasagna!!UGH! Anyway, bad idea those sweet potatoes. He just wasn't feeling good enough today so of course....it made for some good pics!:)Poor baby! But he is sleeping it off now in a Tylenol coma, bless his heart!Hopefully he'll be much better tomorrow!!

OUR SWEET BABY WAS HAVING AN ALLERGY TO CORN!!!!!!
Thicken Up is pure CORNSTARCH! And Pedialyte contains a corn derivative,too!!!After much poking around on the good ol' web, I also learned that he may not necessarily be allergic to corn....it's just that corn is a known allergen and you're not supposed to introduce allergens of any kind into their still developing systems until at least 6 months. UGH! I felt horrible about doing that to him but then I realized we were only following our doctors advice. Why would they not warn us of this being at LEAST a possibility??We are now with a new pediatrician,by the way. I shouldn't have to diagnose my own child!!I feel like we were being led to this new doc anyway. She has been recommended to us by several moms, my brother went to her, and then, on accident...I happened upon her Facebook page!!!So I really feel like that's where we are supposed to be. He goes on the 16th, so I'm really looking forward to meeting her.
This Sunday at church, they are having New Arrivals Day for all the babies born in 2008. There will be a short slide show and then a Dedication.We are very excited about this.In fact, we currently will have 20 people there just from our families alone. It's so nice to know that we have such a loving family. And ya know, even with the economy being the way it is, being on a strict budget,working one less day a week, making less but now having to spend more......even with all the unknowns.......I still feel more blessed than I ever have!
