I've grown!!

I am 9 lbs 5 oz now!! ('Course you can't really tell in these pics of me SWIMMING in these overalls.) I think it's safe to say it'll be another month or so before I can officially wear them! But mommy was having fun playing dress-up. Am I the cutest baby or what?! ;o)

Sawyer had an appointment with Dr. Lopez in North Platte this morning. Her diagnosis is JUST what I suspected. Chronic acid reflux! She also has an allergy to cow's milk protein. So, she recommended we keep her on the Nutramigin and she put her on Prevacid. (She said the Zantac is just an H-blocker and knocks down some of the acid in the tummy, but the Prevacid will actually stop the acid from developing...(?) or something like that. I don't know - sounded good to me!) Whatever makes my baby girl feel better. She also told me that it's ok to give her 2ml of Maalox Max when she's having a tummy ache, since that should help coat things & should help with instant relief. I sincerely hope this is the answer to our prayers! And just in time for mommy to go back to work. Ugh!

Will update you soon as to whether she's improved or not.

I was thinking of you guys today. I hope this works for Sawyer! If there is anything at all I can do seriously just call, even if you just need 30 min of relief- I can do that! She looks so cute in her overalls....soon they will be too little.:)
Take care!

I was wondering about this all day. Thx for the update. Yay! She'll probably be a totally different little girl after this is over!

I hope this works for you! All three of mine kids were allergic to milk protien. One still is.

I'm so glad it's some thing simple to take care of. Yeah for you.
