the top 6 reasons i am a happy baby

1. (and most important) i am eating about 21 ounces a day right now

2.  i am taking my bottle in less than 30 minutes most of the time

3.  i like the taste of my new medicine and don't mind taking it

4.  i have had 12…yes 12 vomit free days in a row

5.  i weighed 10lbs 3oz on sunday night

6.  i am so darn cute

needless to say, things are looking up.  whether it was the iv nexium that healed my esophagus, or the fact that i am on prevacid instead of prilosec now, or the new (extremely expensive…but princesses have expensive taste) formula i am on…something is working.  i am not as afraid to eat anymore and even let mommy or daddy know when i am hungry once in awhile.

mommy and daddy took me to see dr. goldenberg, my pediatrcian on friday and he said that everything looks good.  i weighed 9lbs 15oz when we saw him and had gained 2 ounces a day the next 2 days.  i am still not even on the growth chart yet but if i keep moving in the right direction i could be on the chart in a few months.  i was fascinated by my reflection in the mirror and thought that i had a friend that wanted to play with me until daddy told me that it was actually just cute ole me.  Picture 096

here i am with my favorite friend in the whole wide world, lilly leapfrog.  she goes everywhere with me….even in the car.  she counts to me and sings to me.  i play with it so much that mommy and daddy have all of the songs memorized…they just don't sing as well as she does. 

well i am going to go for now but please pray that my medicine continues to work and that i keep eating really well. 

love and fairy dust,

    YEAH!!!! I am so glad you’re doing so well with the new meds and formula. They didn’t have those when I was a baby, so I cried all the time and only ate when I was starving. Keep up the good work!!
