It's Friday...after I typed that I actually had to stop and double check - ha! It has been a weird week over here and by the sound of it for some of you too, but yes the weekend has arrived!
I have received several very kind emails and questions over the past few days about Josie in regards to my off hand comment earlier in the week when I mentioned she "projectile vomits 30 times a day"...first of all I wasn't exaggerating although it sounds dramatic - frankly it is. And it is pretty hard to describe how frustrating it can be especially to see her in pain. We are pretty sure that it IS acid reflux as a few suggested and she is currently on her third prescription we haven't quite found the right medication yet. Our second son, Levi also had severe acid reflux but his symptoms were pretty limited Josie on the other hand has several more and as far as I can tell is also very sensitive to dairy and eggs she breaks out in horrible red eczema if I eat either of those. I am really not sure why I have had two children with reflux our pediatrician said some families are just more prone to it but our oldest son did not have it and let me tell you when you have one that does you suddenly have sympathy for other families dealing with it. I know she will grow out of it and hopefully within the next few months but I do hate to see her in pain. She is four months old now and starting to show us her personality a bit more. There have been some pretty fun moments sprinkled in and I have a feeling once she grows out of the reflux she will be cracking us all up. Today I turned my back and one of her big brothers thought she needed to be a pirate. She just sat there smiling at Levi giving her all kinds of silly attention. I love those sweet moments it makes it all so worth it!
Thanks to those who were concerned other than that she is doing great. Not quite sleeping through the night but a solid twelve pounds, loves her bath, her brothers, music, snuggling and of course miss dolly!
"what, this is cool right?"
