Sadie & Puddin'

First off, we had a nice, albeit short, vacation where we visited Multnomah Falls. It was fun. But most fun of all was the hotel.
As some of you may know I have a deep and abiding love for hotels. And not fine hotels, although I'm sure I would love them if I could afford them. I just love me a nice Shiloh Inn or Comfort
Inn or what have you. If there are waffles for breakfast and a pool I feel like I'm in heaven.

And it would appear that Sadie feels the same as us. She kept asking about when we were done doing whatever it was we were doing at the time- And then we'll go back to the hotel? Are we going to the hotel later? I lush (love) the hotel!

Of course, that could be directly related to the fact that in hotels all limits on TV are off. We get to the room and turn it on and watch TV the whole time. I have no idea why. We watch the morning news, Saturday cartoons, movies we've already seen 7 times, inappropriate television, the works.
Well, here we are at the falls. I've even included a picture that upon further inspection revealed exactly why my thighs don't even fit into my maternity clothes. My maternity clothes.

I have two unrelated but entertaining items to tell y'all. Wait, make that 4.

1. The doc agrees that Silas has reflux/colic but since the meds don't seem to help he does not need them. Which is great- I hated giving them to him and he hated them too.
Tell me, who decided to flavor liquid Zantac with mint?
And not just any mint. A strong, pink, Canada mint type of mint. The kind of mint that numbs your mouth.
Every time Silas got a dose he would scream and then froth at the mouth 30 minutes afterward, desperate to rid his mouth of the taste. Poor kid. So that's over, at least. Although that also means that I will have to continue sleeping at a 45 degree angle with Silas sleeping on top of me for the foreseeable future. Hey, it's that or no sleep at all for the last 3-4 hours of every night.
The good news is that even with all the spitting up Puddin' is gaining weight like a champ.

2. Oh, Puddin' is Silas' nickname. And the other 80% of the time we call him Brother. This is going to be one confused kid.
So Puddin' has gone from 8 lbs. 8 oz. to 13 lbs. 7 oz. as of today. In 5 weeks.
If you count the weight he lost right after birth he has gained a pound a week every week so far. His rolls are starting to appear and he has a big, round puppy tummy. Yum, he's so delicious.

3. Yesterday Sadie was playing with a pen and drawing. When we sat down to eat dinner and pulled Brother's chair over I noticed he has pen marks on his arm. So I asked Sadie if she had drawn on him, but she said no.
So we asked her how it had happened. Here's what she said:
Maybe when Brother was bigger he was playing with a horse and the horse scratched him and it left a line.
Then Dada said, "Did you give Brother a tattoo?"
And she grinned huge and said Yeah!

4. Sadie found a My Little Pony recently. You know, those little horses with the weird doll hair manes.
So yesterday it resurfaced and Sadie asks Dada:

S: Dada, what's this toy?
D: That's a My Little Pony.
Sadie looks very put-out by this and says:
S: No Dada, it's My little pony.

Lousy Dada, trying to steal her pony. It totally made me laugh.

I really need to remember to pee BEFORE reading your blog. That is one cute chubberbaby you got. If things get too overwhelming for you, I am willing to adopt him.
