Musings slightly after 5 months

I shouldn't be allowed to read things on the internet. Now I'm all concerned that Joseph has reflux. He spits up. He's been kind of fussy at food-time lately. He arches his back sometimes. He's kind of skinny. And he sucks on his hands and rags. Coincidentally, these are all symptoms of reflux. Aren't they "symptoms" of being a baby too? Oh well.

Here's our 5 month picture with Mona the cow, for those of you keeping tabs on our growing boy.

In other news: I finished my first sweater! I'm so proud :) Too bad that it won't get too much use. I'll just have to make another one...much bigger...

We're rolling too. We've had about 5 or 6 successful flips from front to back. It seems that he's figuring out that he's controlling this, too. He always looks surprised when he ends up on his back. Sometimes he looks like Elvis before he rolls over :)

My poor mom's flight from Beijing was cancelled today because the plane was having wing flap issues. She hates flying so much and I know that she's a little bothered by this (that would be an understatement). She should be home tomorrow, though. I can't wait to hear about her trip!

Good luck with exams this week, Max and Jackie! Study hard and be wicked smaht like I know that you both are. We can't wait to see you both soon!


  1. Alex had reflux when he was a baby and survived. He would have major explosion spit ups.

    Hope your mom arrives safely home tomorrow.

    Jow Who is sooooo cute.

  2. Aww Joe is cute with Mona!

    Speaking of exams...AP exams take place for the next two weeks. Eek!

    I hate delayed flights. I hope my flights to Taiwan this summer won't go through wing flap issues like your mom's plane. I hope she had fun in China!

  3. I can't wait to come home and see everyone!! I only have one exam this week and a paper due tomorrow, not too bad!

    By the way, I love Joe's Elvis face

  4. Allison, I can NOT believe how fast he's grown... it simply seems like yesterday we were eating downtown manch.... so I know I'm not the first to say this, but he looks so much like daddy! hope all is well. will try and buzz you some time! love ya! ann

  5. He looks adorable, so glad that we bumped into you at the mall the other day, we will have to meet there again when Addison gets a little bigger to play with the big kids.
