good days

I think we're seeing the light at the end of the colicky tunnel!

Thursday afternoon Eli started acting like a much happier baby. All of a sudden I could see such a huge change! We've still had our moments, like screaming through diaper changes, hysteria after a bath, and so forth, but in between we're having a lot more happy, smiling moments. Suddenly we're having fun and I'm so excited to say so! I hope it sticks. It started the day after he turned 12 weeks old, so I guess the 3-month estimation on the colic was true!

Josh's car is on the fritz so we've been stuck at home all week while J drove my car to work. It was kind of rough but we spent some time at the park right down the street, where I learned that Eli loves riding on the tire swing with me, and we just love the short walk to get the mail. He really loves to be outside.

My gallbladder surgery is tomorrow. I'm starting to get nervous now! I just can't wait until it's over. I was going through hospital bills yesterday... argh! We owe money at hospitals all over the city now with my surgeries and Eli's issues. I'm trying not to think about it too much. Staying home is a blessing but it's also a little scary!

Anyway. Here's some proof of our recent happiness!
