People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Reflux again?!?

We are still alive here. The transition to three kids was definitely easier than the transition to two. Probably because I don't have two babies on different schedules to take care of. Now its just two hellions........that can at least take care of a baby.

8 days old

Grandma Joy came and helped us for a few days. We sure appreciated her.

12 days old

3 weeks old

At her 2 weeks check up she weighed 8lb 9oz. She has gotten quite fussy and pukes a lot. If there was a contest she would be a medalist. I just kept crossing my fingers that it wouldn't turn into reflux, but no go. All of the symptoms. Crying from 10pm - 1am or 8:30pm to 4am. Yeah, the holidays were filled with noise alright. So that makes me 3 for 3 with reflux babies. How did I get so lucky? Not complaining though. Allie is a sweet heart and we are glad to have her here. I took her to the doctor for the reflux and she weighed 11lbs at 5.5 weeks!! If she didn't puke so much she would probably be 13lbs. He gave her a rx for prevacid and I hope it kicks in soon! She also has a milk protein intolerance like Sophie did, so I've gone off dairy, my favorite thing. I forgot how long it lasted with Sophie. Hopefully not too long:(

So here is the big question: was the feeding tube worth it? Not only yes, but h.e.double hockey sticks yes! She has been smiling at us for a couple weeks now and it is the cutest thing ever! I love to snuggle this sweetie.
