What have we been up to???

Look how he's grown!

So we went to the apple orchard/pumpkin patch a couple of weekends ago, and I just uploaded a few pictures to my computer- so here is a preview to compare last year to this year! Look at that tiny baby and now a little boy! Still loves his camo pants! More pics to come!

I was on call 4/7 days two weeks ago so I didn't do too much exciting (although fortunately it was a pretty quiet week of call ). So nothing really to report. And no pictures.

Then last week I went to a week long training course to become a Certified Lactation Counselor- this is one of the first steps for my eventual goal to become a IBCLC (lactation consultant) - I really have been looking forward to this for a long time!

I learned SO much during that week- the teachers did a great job and I met lots of fun women! I missed my boys, and I know they missed me, but I hope that the things I learned will make a difference for the moms in my practice and it makes it totally worth it for me. It is so fulfilling as a pediatrician to help a mom through difficult times and help her meet her goals.

Of course it will be another 6-8 weeks till I find out if I actually passed my test!!!
