Better days ahead

Elliot is FINALLY starting to feel better! He has started smiling, talking, and playing again. His new favorite thing to do is screech and squeal. He can go really high-pitch and sounds exactly like a baby chimpanzee. If you don't know what they sound like, look it up on youtube... that's what he sounds like. Silly boy!
He also really, REALLY likes to stand up {with help}. I don't know how this kid is ever going to learn to sit unassisted, because all he ever wants to do is stand... and sometimes he throws a fit if you try to get him to sit down. He likes standing so much that I went out and bought him a walker. He's not quite big enough to touch the floor yet, so I put a pillow under there and he LOVES it! Who knows, maybe he'll STAND before he SITS by himself. I tend to do things a little backwards myself, so I wouldn't put it past him.
Although the antibiotics seem to be working, they also give Elliot really nasty, stinky poop. I've been using his biodegradable/flushable inserts because he's been pooping in every single diaper. Yuck! So his butt has been much less "fluffy" the last couple days. I miss the cloth, though. The disposables are much less soft and absorbent... and they make the trash stink. There is never any smell with his cloth! I can't wait for him to be done with this medicine.

Teething smile
He SMILES again! :) Usually with his fingers jammed in his mouth, because he is teething like crazy.

  2. SO cute! Chloe has just started sitting up herself! Shes not much of a stander, but she loves to try and scoot... i hope she doesn't start crawling too soon i may cry!

    When Chloe was on her antibiotics for an ear infection she started pooping 2 - 3 times a day and they got stinkier and larger LOL.

    The doc told me thats just what antibiotics do.

    He is such a cutie.
