I lied

I didn't blog that weekend...or the next!

I just am running out of time.  Heck, I'm typing this with one hand!  We've been busy dealing with reflux.  Such an awful thing to deal with.  At 1st it wasn't that terrible cept' for a few bad moments here and there, but now it's becoming the new norm and gradually getting worse.

Baby starts his meds tonight, and if it has not improved in 2 weeks, we go to a pediatric surgeon.  His doctor mentioned something about the spinchter at the base of his esophagus being weak and may require surgery? I forgot the actual name though.

Here's the list of his symptoms

random ear piercing screams that the dogs have now started to howl to
spitting up 20 times a day, sometimes so much it will go 2 ft away!
can't lie down without fussing and waking himself up, needs to sleep upright
hiccups 5 times a day!  each hiccup brings spit up
sleep at night is rarely in a pattern
and the new one, screaming and nursing at the same time, while kicking his legs, red faced and arching his back - I thought it meant he really needed to be burped, NOPE it means I need to puke on you.

In not puke related news.  He has started to smile! He weighs well into 11lbs at his 1 month check up, almost 23" long and is doing great =)  He LOVES to babble, especially to my breast. He wears size 6mos clothes!  and I think his hair is falling out!

Oh and I have to say we got a coffee machine!  I'm not a coffee drinker really, and I avoid caffeine whenever possible, but I love this machine!  It makes tea, and hot chocolate =) Keurig = yum!
