+ 0 - 0 | § Maine roundup part 1/x

I figure I'll post this in installments. Quite alot happened in the last couple of weeks up in Maine, and I'm sure not to remember it all in this entry. Perhaps Kari or I will remember more tidbits later to post.

On the ride up, Alex, the cats, and I slept pretty much most of the way up. Alex and the cats slept because it was late, and I slept because I had ridden the red-eye back from LA the night before. Kari was quite the trooper and drove the whole way up, in just a little over 5 hours! That's a whole lot better than the 12-13 hours it would take us from central PA. The first weekend was good, and the cabin was a whole new world to Alex, which was great, because everything is a toy. On the fourth of July, we had a bit of an eating incident. Alex got a piece of carrot lodged in his esophagus, and he couldn't get it out for about a day, so consequently, he wasn't able to get any food down for that period. So, in the morning, we went to the emergency room the hospital in Augusta, but, after waiting in the waiting room there, they told us that they couldn't treat him because he was too small for their equipment, so we got to see what the ER in Portland looked like. That was plenty crowded too, being around a holiday and all. The doctor and staff in Portland were very nice though, and they removed the carrot, and we were able to get out of the hospital around 7PM. Alltogether, the experience could have gone much worse, but it wasn't a terrible lot of fun.

Alex decided to make a vendeta on food from that point out, and decided to eat as possible, presumably because he might be stuck being unable to eat again. He would routinely eat for breakfast an egg, a piece of toast, and a bowl of cereal (not a tiny one either, like a cup of cereal!). Sometimes he'd eat second breakfasts, or whole ice cream sandwiches for a snack. Dinners would constantly surprise us. We'd ask, "Are you done yet?", and he'd keep saying "No! No!" and shaking his head. Speaking of "No!", he's learned quite a few new phrases, no, uh-oh, I eat that, and more. We can have conversations now, albeit very simple ones.

We introduced him to the lake quite a bit. He waded in a little pool that I made out of rocks within the lake, and enjoyed vigorously dropping the rocks in the lake to make splashes. He went "swimming" with Mommy, Daddy, Angie and Abbie in the lake, but definately preferred to be in an innertube, or on an inflatable raft.

We went to Pemaquid point to see the ocean and the light house. Alex enjoyed pickin up snails and vigorously dropping them in the tidal pools for more splooshes.

On the way home yesterday, we left earlier in the day, which meant that both Alex and Kujo spent alot of the time awake. Luckily, they both entertained each other quite well. Almost everything Kujo did was funny, apparently. Additionally, Kujo lost what little common sense he has and proceeded to sit on Alex's lap and mew. I seriously think that the kid may have damaged his cheeks from smiling so much. Luckily, nothing on the trip home was quite as funny as when daddy had to put the cats into the carriers on the way up to Maine. He laughed so hard that he threw up, and kept on laughing the whole time. The kid certainly has a sense of humor.

P.S.  Pictures are coming ... eventually.
