We went to the beach for the better part of the day today. Anthony tolerated it pretty well for the morning and then Todd and I took turns sitting in the room with him while he napped the rest of the day. It hit 82 degrees here today, but the breeze off the ocean made it quite comfortable, I think we may actually come home with a tan. There was another family here that had a new baby (born 2 days before Anthony) and they just happen to plop their beach chairs next to ours and the mom was a talker. So she and I talked a lot about our babies, and I have to admit, I am a bit jealous of her. Her baby was so good, (Anthony was good too, but her baby was really good) they had her outside from 10am till 3:30pm and she never fussed once that I saw, and actually slept a lot too. She then told me that she has her baby on a 4 hour eating schedule. 7am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm and then to bed for the night. I don't even know how many times a day Anthony eats, but it's way more than that. His daily routine doesn't qualify as a schedule since it is always changing. I never know when he will want to eat, sometimes its in 2 hours, sometimes 3 1/2 hours, he is very unpredictable. He is also very intolerable to being hungry, when he wants to eat he wants to eat NOW! (I think he gets that from me) and don't even think about trying to put him off. Yesterday on the way to Naples (a 2 hour drive) he decided it was time to eat about 10 minutes before we got to our hotel, so we had to stop and I fed him in the car in the parking lot of a grocery store. (Right after I changed his diaper in the car on my lap and he peed all over me and him.) And speaking of dirty diapers, he poops even more than he eats. When we left for this vacation I packed 40 diapers, we ran out rather quickly and had to buy another 40 pack and now it is gone too. So in 6 days he went through 80 diapers. I feel like he's gone back to peeing and pooping like he did at weeks 2 and 3. I'm starting to wonder if that Rotavirus vaccine he got at his 2 month check up has anything to do with it.
Here is a few pictures from our vacation thus far.
