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 themselves......plus a baby.
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.
