Better Bear

Well, aside from eating, Bear is back to normal. He still won't touch any baby food, other than the 2-3 bites of oatmeal that I can get him to eat in the evenings. He is however, drinking formula (but no more than normal) and water and he'll eat crackers or cereal on occasion. Everything else about him seems completely normal--sleeping, playing, mood, etc. I'm going to try and feed him some baby food for lunch as soon as he wakes up from his nap, so we'll see how that goes.

Now that he is getting better, I'm the one that's not feeling so good. My throat started hurting yesterday and is still bugging me. I don't know if I have a cold or if my allergies are bothering me. I took allergy medication last night and it seemed to help a little, but not much. Hopefully whatever it is, I'll be done with it by Friday, so we can have as pleasant a trip as possible.

Bear's new stroller got here yesterday and he seems to like it. I haven't road tested it, but we took it for a few laps around the house and I'm satisfied. One of the complaints that people had with this stroller was that they keep kicking the wheels when they are using it. I didn't seem to have that problem--perhaps because I'm on the tall side and my arms are longer?? I don't know, but I think it's going to work for us.

It has been raining here like crazy, and I am sick of it! It rained pretty hard this morning when we went to the gym. It's really difficult to stay dry and get a baby out of the back seat of a smaller car. I managed, but I have enough stuff to carry without the big, huge umbrella I have to use to keep both of us dry!

That's about it for today. Bear and I are going to venture out to Target when he wakes up, provided it's not raining again. We're going to buy some stuff we need for our trip and probably some stuff we don't need, because that's what happens when I go to Target.

Glad Bear is doing better! Tell your folks "hi" for me (and your brother if he's there.)
