On Monday evening my mom and her husband, Bilhenry, came into town so we could celebrate Christmas with them and so they could see their constantly growing, changing little grandson. They got in early enough on Monday evening that they were able to stop by and visit for a little while, but Ridley fussed almost the whole time they were over, which isn't like him.
I was glad they were able to visit for a little bit though, and I was glad Nora and Robin came too! And even though he fussed a bunch, Ridley was glad to see them too. He also enjoyed showing off his skeleton outfit:
On Tuesday (yesterday) Ridley seemed to be feeling much better. He was still a bit cranky, and he was being really picky about things - like refusing to nap anywhere but his snugli - but overall a vast improvement from Monday night.
We headed over to my aunt's house in the evening to meet up with everyone for dinner. Ridley started getting cranky again, but he actually stayed pretty calm for Josh, so Josh took Ridley duty for most of the evening and even got him to sleep!
We had a great time with everyone and it was so good to see my mom and her husband. It's too bad we don't live closer so it would be easier to see them.
After we got home from Aunt Nettie's, Ridley ate some dinner, and then 20 minutes later had the biggest spit up of his life. He spewed all over himself, the bouncy chair he was in, and even hit the floor. I was in the other room when it happened, but Josh saw it. Ridley thought it was very funny and smiled and laughed. All his crankiness went away too, so his tummy must have been bothering him for a little bit. After we got him cleaned up and bathed he was right back to his sweet little self.
