Zeke will be crawling any day now. Seriously. Josh and I's bet (Josh-before Thanksgiving; me-after) will be a close one. 8 days to go.

In other news, and this might be TMI and if so, too bad, but Ezekiel has not pooped in 1 week tomorrow. At first I thought it was just because he ate a WHOLE banana Thursday night. But now I'm getting a little concerned. I tried to feed him applesauce a couple days ago to get things going but he didn't like it. So then I tried some watered down apple juice this morning...his first juice experience. It also didn't go well. He found the apple juice in the bottle insulting or something, he wouldn't take it. So then at the grocery store I bought a tippy cup. Well he's not really ready for it yet I don't think (nor did I really expect him to be). He LOVED chewing on it and playing with it, and he even held it really well and got it into his mouth. But he wouldn't suck. And so I tried removing the little thingy that keeps it from spilling so it would dribble into his mouth. He probably got 2 ounces all over himself and 1 in his mouth...if I'm lucky... So now we are going to try pear for dinner. The taste wont be as strong as apple, I think, so maybe he will like it. And I think if he doesn't poop tomorrow I will call Dr Morgan because I am out of ideas! Any one have any?

One thing is for sure. Zeke is only allowed a half banana at a time from now on!

Also, look at Zeke's adorable hair! I bought him some product, its called Surf Hair or something like that, lol. I also cut two little sections that have been driving me insane. They were WAY longer then everything else.

Applesauce=constipation, apple juice= loose bowels. The pear and prune juice was what worked for the boys. They only had a bowel movement every 5 days. Good luck! And I can't wait to see how the bet turns out...that kid is ready!

He is SO close! My guess is ON Thanksgiving. Then who wins?! Me?? :D Poor Zeke, being backed up is no fun. Have you tried prune baby food yet? That always did the trick with Zack. Just take extra clothes and diapers when you go somewhere. :D Good luck!

When we first tried the apple juice on Preston he didn't really like it that much, but he loved drinking out of a straw. So if I gave him apple juice out of a straw then he would drink it. It was super tedious but it worked. Hope that helps. And also when Preston was little like that he was not a regular pooper, his schedule was all over the place. Sometimes daily, other times weekly, or every few days.

And go Zeke on the crawling!! I know you want to win the bet, but I can't wait for him to be mobile!! :D

I just realized I forgot to say that Preston couldn't actually drink out of the straw, I had to dribble it from the straw into his mouth. Does that make sense?? I can show you tomorrow if it doesn't.

Try prunes. All it takes for my girls is just a couple teaspoons and everything is flowing!
I love that hair! What a cutie! Can't wait to finally meet him next week.

So he finally pooped. And it wasn't even hard or anything, strange. But if he does this again I think I will try the prunes and see if he will eat that. He wont do apples or pears so I'm a little doubtful, I think he just doesnt like fruit. I will also try apple juice in his medicine dropper since he does the dropper really well. Tedious but I bet it would work.
