So it’s been a while since I have posted here. It turns out that any “free” time I used to have pretty much doesn’t exist anymore. I’m lucky if I get a half hour before bed to read. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with Owen (especially after being at work all day), but having me time is something I think everyone needs.
This past weekend we traveled to Pittsburgh for a family reunion and a Christmas in July… in August party. The reunion was a short drive out of Pittsburgh to Somerset, Pa. It was nice for some of the more distant family members to meet Owen for the first time. Owen went on his first hayride, and he had his first (very short) dip in the pool. I think he enjoyed the hayride because he was moving and had a good view. The pool was another story. The water was quite a bit colder than he’s used to with his baths. At least he looked cute in his new bathing suit :). I am hoping that when we go on vacation the water will be warmer and he will enjoy it more.
Owen seems to be adapting well to daycare. This past week I got a call from them while I was at at work (talk about freaking out) saying that he has been having some trouble finishing his bottles. This was a surprise to me since at home he finishes bottles very well. The same day they called I noticed him feeling a little uncomfortable during feedings so we decided to go back to the sensitive formula, which is what we started with. Hopefully in a few days he will start feeling 100% again.
