Yay for poop!

I never thought I'd be this excited about my kid pooping! As a lot of you know, he hasn't gone in over a week. Since last Friday...the day he switched completely to breastmilk. We called our pediatrician twice last week about it, and then took him in on Friday, after it had been a full week. He had an x-ray done to make sure everything looked ok. He hasn't been fussy or acting like he's in pain, and his stomach is not distended, so the pediatrician was bewildered. We have another appointment on Monday and if he hadn't gone by then, they were going to give him an enema. So we've been "encouraging" him to go. We do bicycle kicks with his legs, and massage his stomach and back (both things that the doctor suggested). Even so, up until tonight he still hadn't gone.

Then tonight we decided we needed to get out of the house, and we went to Babies-R-Us. Sure enough, as soon as we leave the house, he goes! We didn't mind though, and were so relieved! We decided to do a post about this because a lot of you are concerned and have been praying for him.

Afterwards, we went to Noodle Company for dinner. This is our first time in a restaurant with William, so we had to get a picture, of course!

Yay for poop!!! Poor guy...I'm glad it didn't seem to bother him! :) Don't worry, Miller. You aren't the only mother who worries when her baby doesn't poop. That is one of the most frequently expressed concerns I get at the hosptial. The baby could be in with pneumonia, on oxygen, IV fluids...so much to worry about, and the mom says, "he hasn't pooped today. Is that ok?" :) He is SO precious! I can't wait to meet him!!!!
