Well, this extreme hatred that started on February 13th, has not managed to disapear. It continued as he was a little newborn, continued on my 8 hour road trip down to San Antonio/6 hour trip back, and so on. Keith and I have LITERALLY tried everything that we can think of to make it better. We even upgraded Eli early to the nicest and most expensive convertable carseat on the market. (These seats are mandatory for kids that are 20lbs and one years old usually, but infants can ride in them too.) We thought the new car seat worked, and it did make things better, but no quick fix. We are currently looking to a small dvd player for him to be distracted with.
It is unfortunate to say, but we don't take Eli a whole ton of places for this reason. If there is an opportunity for Keith and I to go somewhere together, or have one of us run a quick errand....we usually go the solo route. However, ocassionally we get a wild hair to run out as a family or have to be somewhere, and it is at this time that we remember why we don't do it more often.
So...with all of that being said, I really hate to throw my lil' man under the bus. However, I feel like it is really necessary for you to all understand just how extreme this hatred runs. Also, no need to call CPS, either. Our car had cold AC running, and I did my typical 'offering' of toys, blankets, pacifiers, and so forth to help him out. Just like all other car trips, it was with no success that these things worked. But, ....here is a video of Eli in the car. This was just a few miles from the house (after he took a 2 hour nap prior and had a whole bottle....just sayin').
