We had a great 4th of July weekend. Elliot and Dad went to the parade on Saturday morning (not sure if dad took any pics). After nap time we went to Aunt Pat's for a BBQ and hung out with everyone. That night Mom took Elliot to his first fireworks ever. He did a great job and liked them a lot (not scared one bit) but he was tired before they were over and asked to go home. We heard the finale on our way home, instead of seeing it. Maybe next year, he'll make it through the whole show.
Max is doing pretty well. We went to his 9 month check up. He now weighs 18.8lbs and is 27.5 inches long. He is still 25% for both height and weight. He is still on zantac because his reflux is still pretty bad. The doctor found a murmur when listening to his heart so we have to see a cardiologist to just make sure that it is an "innocent" murmur and nothing more serious. The appointment is set for July 20th. Other than that, he is doing really well
As Elliot would like to say "I am a very lucky boy!" He gets to go down the shore two times this year, for a week each. Our first trip was to Cape May Point with Gram, Aunt Maggie, Uncle Paul, Aunt Kate, John and Jeannie. Elliot had a blast. He LOVED the water and went surfing with dad, climbed all 199 steps to the lighthouse, went to the zoo, played really well with John and just had a great trip. Max did surprisingly well for his first time to the beach and sleeping away from home. He loved the beach as long as the wind wasn't blowing and really liked sucking the salt water off rocks and buckets. While away he learned to go from laying to sitting and how to clap. We saw a tooth but after coming home, it went back up.
