So we've settled on Similac Sensitive, which seems to calm the tummy mostly by not staying in it too long. Junebuggy needs diaper changes pretty often and is also eating a whole lot more than she did on other formulas. But she's not crying so much, so that's a good thing and a positive tradeoff overall. The Sensitive formula uses corn syrup instead of lactose as a sweetener, so we're contributing to the global increase in corn demand.
She's still huge, too. Off the charts height- and weight-wise. So by carting her around we're contributing to the global increase in oil demand too. We're such an un-eco-friendly family. Ah well.
Tina's doing OK after the appendectomy. She's still getting her conditioning back after the pregnancy and has to deal with some lingering hip discomfort, but she walked the zoo fairly well today (with a little help from her friend Naproxen).
Not too much else to tell. We're definitely falling prey to the second-baby thing -- I think I blogged every time Ellie sneezed for the first six months, and this time it's all pretty much the same only with more crying, so there's not much to tell. Or so it seems to me. So I hope AJ doesn't think we don't like her -- we're just less surprised by her because we've seen it all before.
Now, maybe if she were a boy... just kidding.

afternoon they're pretty bad, so we go to urgent care to see what be
up. They referred her to the hospital for more advanced treatment. She
ended up getting admitted to Christ hospital (the same place Amelia
was born, and in almost the same room too) for testing. Likely
culprits? Appendicitis or ovarian cyst.
Turns out she has... Wait for it... BOTH! A twofer. Fan-diddly-tastic.
So now, one day and an appendectomy later, she's resting in a hospital
bed once again. It's all frustratingly familiar. We recognize Manu
nurses and we have exactly the same view we had in April. I mean, it's
a perfectly fine view and all, but honestly we're a little tired of it.
As always, there are folks who have it worse. But this is getting

area. Elizabeth is a little unsure about all the bugs. Sometimes she
wants to go out and look at them and even hold the empty shells.
Other times she gets too freaked out to even walk around and we have
to bring her back in. The noise is unbelievable.
These pictures are from Mammaw and Pappaw's house. They had just put
up these nice lights by their garage and put them on timers so they
would come on at night. Since the cicadas are clearly attracted to
the lights they have been turned off until further notice!
