We had a nice visit with Keith's parents this past week. They drove all the way out from NH and spent a few days with us. Their visit happened to coincide with Keith having two days in-a-row off, so he was able to be home quite a bit. Ethan enjoyed having someone new to play his Teletubby memory game with and to read books to him. We are still enjoying meals that Grandma made for us. She even hemmed a pair of Keith's pants, a skill which I have been far too unmotivated to master. (I'll learn to knit a robot before taking on a practical chore any day!)










On Wednesday, I took Drew to see the gastroenterologist. The visit was a repeat performance of last time, except that this doctor was more soft-spoken and therefore harder to hear over Drew's screams. I'm not really sure of half of what was said, but we left the office with a new prescription in hand. The new medication, Prevacid, is in capsule form and must be split in half in order to give the correct dosage. The only problem is that a million tiny little pellets (hmmm, sounds like a book)come spilling out everywhere and must be somehow divided properly. Next, the pellets must be dissolved in applesauce and fed to the poor little chap. He's only 2 months old!! Feed him applesauce?! We started the regimen yesterday and it was a bit of a disaster but better today. Fascinating details, I know.

Nice pics...Is that Spiderman curled up on Ethan's lap enjoying storytime with Grandma?

Drew looks hale and hearty for all the discomfort he's experienced...
