Little G update  0

Posted on November 17th, 2007. About Baby Dodds.

Wow, what a week it has been. Evan was in Barcelona on a business trip, and I had to give my first Neurology Grand Rounds talk (which went well!). I’ve had a great week with Little G; he turned four months old on Wednesday! I had to take some photographs of him on his big one-third-of-a-year birthday, which will be up shortly.

One activity I enjoy a great deal with G is giving him his bath. He’s so alert, laughing, and splashing around in his little tub. We always sing the Buddy Holly song and change the night of the week – “Splish, Splash I was takin’ a bath, all upon a M/T/W/Th/F/S/Sun night!” He is also responding to his bath toys now.

Then, after the bath is complete, it’s time to wrap G in a hooded towel or in his bathrobe!

This week, he receives his second set of S-H-O-T-S. I have sympathy for Jenny McCarthy and for her four-year-old autistic son, but autism does not come from vaccines. However, public health epidemics do arise from the lack of vaccines. I’ll stop there. Anyway, it’s odd to think that G will not have the chickenpox as I did. When I was growing up, one accentuation of the age gap between my mother and me was my awareness that she had had measles, rubella, mumps, etc, and I never had any of these viral illnesses. Now, G will potentially see me in the same way.

Anyway, the boy is doing quite well – he rolled over for the first time on November 9th, but once on his belly he could not turn himself back onto his backside and grew upset. The same thing happened the following day, and then earlier this week for me. Now he makes sure he has an arm in the way to keep from completely turning over, but rather, he makes a 3/4 turn and can flip to his back again.

So that’s the update – parenthood is still a joy!
