Happy Holidays

We've had a great few weeks since C has been home from the hospital.  Its been different having a baby that eats in 20 minutes instead of an hour and 20 minutes.  We took C to the houses of both sets of grandparents.  Taking him out of the house was surprisingly liberating.  I was very excited to have him experience life outside of our bedroom and the hospital.  The world is growing for him, every day.  The beginning of January continues the hectic medical schedule we've had.  Hopefully we're on the downward slope of the bell curve.  We have appointments with our pediatrician for Synagis, the urologist for his kidney reflux, the GI doc for his tummy reflux and the cardiologist for his mitral valve reflux... I know its regurgitation, but I was on a reflux trend so I thought I should keep going with it... *grin* OH well.. its probably not as funny as I think it is... We're still lacking sleep, I assume that is normal for parents of a 4 month old.  We're not allowed to let him sleep through the night quite yet, I'm hoping that will change soon along with perhaps not having to fortify his bottles anymore.  If we can stop doing that I can pump less and breast feed more.  That would be lovely... 


  1. Glad to hear things are going so well! It will only get better!

  2. I am so late checking back in to you, and I apolgize. But I'm glad to hear that you guys did the surgery and hope that Charlie's continued to improve!
