Over the weekend, during one of our “we need to get out of the house, right now” moments, we decided to take a ride through the Warwick Valley. It’s a beautiful ride over country roads with beautiful, little farms along the way. We made a quick stop at Heaven Hill Farm to see the animals. Roman is just enamored with animals right now and he had such fun feeding wild chives to the goats.

Marina enjoyed coasting along in her stroller, too. She is content in a moving stroller or a moving car — other than that, things get tricky. I don’t think I’d call her colicky, but she’s not a content baby like Roman was. She wants to be held or to be moving constantly. When I put her down, she screams.

At this point, I can’t decide if it’s normal newborn behavior or something else. She is more gassy and she spits up more often than Roman did, which makes me wonder if maybe she has a food sensitivity or reflux. Since she is breastfed, I’ve decided to cut out dairy, garlic, onions, and broccoli from my diet for a little while to see what happens.

In the meantime, we’re getting by the best way that we know how to. I’m hoping that all of these “we need to get out of the house, right now” moments lead to lots of adventures.

  1. Aw, what a fun little outing! I wish we had spots like this near us. “Country” anything would be great. Roman looks so big! And I don’t know if I’ve already mentioned this but Margo also spits up A LOT and is way gassy. I’ve also thought silent reflux, which makes sense when they don’t want to be put down. That may bother it? Idk. Also, colic calm has helped us as well, very temporarily though. Better than nothing.
