Quinn and I had the pleasure of celebrating my mom’s birthday yesterday! Her birthday was actually over the weekend, so we made plans to celebrate with my sister and Matthew over lunch at Legal Sea Foods.
It was so nice to catch up with my mom and sister. We do our best to get together as often as we can, but it’s a little trickier now that we have little ones.
Look how big Matthew is now! I still remember when he was Quinn’s size.
Matthew (and Grandma) had a blast playing with that mesh bag! Haha!
Right after we ordered lunch, Quinn started to get hungry, so I fed him a bottle, which he held with his tiny hands all by himself.
We started with the Bang Bang Cauliflower as an appetizer to share among the three of us. As always, it was delicious!
For my entrÃ©e, I ordered the Chipotle BBQ Chicken Pizza, which was made with cheddar, Gouda, jalapeno jam, bacon, grilled onions, and crispy kale. It was much spicier than I expected, but I really liked it!
After lunch, we wandered around and did a little shopping. (I bought some socks for Quinn at Gymboree.)
These two are quite adorable, huh?
So, when I gave you guys my colitis update yesterday, I totally forgot to tell you that I scheduled my first three Remicade appointments. (I write a lot of my posts in the middle of the night, so my sleep deprived brain just plain forgot to tell you.) Not surprisingly, caring for an infant takes having a flare to a whole new level, and the one that I am experiencing right now much sealed the deal for me when it came to Remicade. Plus, what I’ve been doing with steroids for the past 2.5 years is WAY worse for my body, so I need to get off them ASAP. So, yea, I’m going on Remicade. My first infusion is on Halloween morning, and I really hope it works.
Questions of the Day
How often do you see your family? If you have kids, does having them make it easier or harder to see your family?
Remicade peeps: Any advice or words of wisdom for me?
