Saturday night was spent at the Fireman’s Carnival. We dropped Landry off with Aunt Erin, then the boy and I were off and running. When I say off and running, I mean, he never stopped! He was super excited, he played games, rode some rides and spent most (if not all!) of Aunt Helen’s money. And when the fireworks started, he barely batted an eye, I was one proud Mama!

When Landry was about a week or so old, he started throwing up. I mentioned it to the Dr, because it was only about once a day, and he was still gaining weight, we decided to wait it out to see if it got better. It started to progressively get worse, he was throwing up about every other feeding, and it was always a lot more than he had just eaten. I called the Dr to see about getting him on some meds for acid reflux. Hunter had this when he was a baby, even though Landry’s symptoms were different, I really thought this is what the problem was. Dr Samuelson thought that it was either pyloric stenosis or an allergy to the soy formula that he’s on. First he wanted to rule out pyloric stenosis, so he sent us to SVMC to get an ultrasound. I was very surprised when the radiologist told me that he did indeed have pyloric stenosis, in order to fix it he would need surgery. Dr Samuelson called me a little while later and said that he had called The Childrens Hospital at Dartmouth (CHAD) and they were expecting us that evening, the surgery would be the next day.
Everyone at CHAD was great and really put us at ease. It’s a scary thing when your child has to have surgery, especially when he’s only four weeks old.
It was so sad to see him with the IV stuck in his head.
I think the hardest part was not being able to give him anything to eat. It was a full 24 hours before they allowed him to eat. We were able to give him tiny amounts of sugar water on a pacifier. The surgery itself was simple and only took about 20 minutes. The incision is very small and shouldn’t leave a scar.
We are so thankful that he’s okay and on the mend.
The top picture is of Hunter when he was around 3 months old, the bottom is of Landry when he was 3 weeks old. Both have those chubby cheeks! It’s hard to tell in the pictures but Hunter’s hair was much darker than Landrys is. Thankfully Landry didn’t inherit poor Hunter’s cowlick!!

Hunter loves our cat CC. And for the most part, CC loves Hunter. He lets him carry him around the house and boss him around.
Lately, CC has been going into Hunter’s room when he’s in there playing. This is what I found the other day. Hunter told me that he and CC were playing blocks.
