Random Stuff all rolled into one...

Steven is still having a lot of problems keeping his food down and his tummy hurts a lot. When we took him to the doctor's on tuesday, she gave us some more recommendations for things to do for him, including increasing the dosage of his medicine, giving his some probiotics, and limiting his eating time. He wasn't so interested in what she was saying, so he decided to take a little nap and rolled over onto his side all by himself!
We got a swing hoping it might help, especially with the acid reflux because he would be able to nap at more of an upright angle. We ordered the swing online and were so excited when we got it! He seems to like it...
This week Steven got his first piece of mail too!! As you can tell, he was very anxious to open it.
It turned out to be his social security card, which he thought was very exciting.
He loves hanging out with his friend, Pounder...
...and his new friend, Monkey, that he got from America's mom, Silvia Ruggieri
We are also so impressed with how strong his neck is! He loves just staring up at the wedding pictures we have on our wall.
He does a really good job getting his head up, but can't control it quite as well on the way down. I'm surprised he hasn't gotten a bloody lip or anything from smashing his face into our shoulders!

"Don't look at me like that, Dad!" or possibly, "Is that all the facial hair you can grow?"
We also got to go and visit Lyndsay and her family again
...and he met Grandpa for the first time!
He had lots of fun looking and David's baby book with him. Hopefully I can make one that cool for him!

It's been a good week so far, though still pretty rough with all the spitting up he's been doing, which seems to be more consistent. I just feel so bad for him because he always seems to be in so much pain! I felt just a little less bad for him this morning, though, when he decided it would be fun to poop all over me and our bed. It was pretty disgusting. He redeemed himself a little, however, by finally peeing on Dad! He's peed on me multiple times, and now pooped on me too, but this was the first time getting TJ. Go Steven!
