I took Brady to the reflux dr a few weeks ago. He was exactly 5 months old, and weighed 18 pounds, 6 ounces. 28 inches long. I have a giant kid. He is wearing 12 month clothes, and some of those are a little snug.

I didn't get the news I wanted at his appointment. Basically, he is throwing up everything that goes in him. She said that babies that puke up this way, tend to do it until they are a year old. I paid $35 to hear that. Awesome, I am so sick of PUKE! She also said we are in the peak of it, as it goes from 4-6 months. Hopefully, in a few weeks we can see home improvement.

The weather has been absolutely blissful, and it makes me sad that I can't enjoy it with him. Now, that he is older, it gets harder and harder to leave him everyday. I tell him every Sunday that we are going to run away, but he just looks as me and smiles. I know it's going to be harder once summer rolls around, and once he gets walking and talking. Sometimes being a mom is hard.

He is getting so big. He can sit up for longer periods of time all by himself. He is so proud of himself too. He is truly showing his personality, and I find that he is growing up before my eyes, and it makes me so sad. He has a few teeth that are going to pop at any time (and oh man am i ready for that to happen. teething sucks. nuff said)

He still isn't sleeping through the night, but we had one night when he slept for TEN freaking hours. Yes, but alas, it was a fluke, and he just did it to show me he could.

We have been having issues with Lily. She snapped at him once, and growled at him a few times. We are working with her, but this is just an issue that I didn't think we would have to deal with. I have no idea what I would do or feel is she bit him, and I don't even want to think that might be an issue. I hope that maybe she needs to get used to him being more of a person instead of that thing that would just lay there and cry! He is in LOVE with her, and laughs at just the simple sight of her. It's melts my heart, and I would hope that they would be good friends. Hopefully, they still can.

I have a ton of pictures to upload, and some other things that I got super behind in posting (ahem, his room....) So, one of these days, I'll get it done!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I know we did. Holidays are so much more fun with a little one around!

well i guess even though he has reflux, the little guy is pretty darn healthy with his weight, huh? :) That's a good thing!

It makes me sad to hear Lily is now acting up with Brady. I was hoping that dogs would just get used to the babies young and never act out but I guess that's not true. I hope it all works out okay!

I weighed 26 pounds at 6 months, so don't worry about him being a chunker. :)

I hope that his reflux heals more quickly than anticipated, and he starts sleeping better so that YOU can sleep better.

I am totally sick of the constant spit-up/throw-up too. She coats at least one cloth diaper burp rag per feeding!

I can't believe your little guy is in 12 months clothes! He's growing so fast!

That stinks that his reflux is peaking and could last until 1 year. I hope it calms down, at least, sooner than later.
I remember when Bella's teeth were getting ready to bust through. We went for her 6 month check-up and our Pedi said they'd come through any time. They came through over a month later. She only has 2 teeth but I remember that she wasn't STTN when they were really coming in. I would give her motrin (after 6mths)to help ease her pain. I also put orajel on at bedtime to help. Hope he starts sleeping better soon!

I totally feel you on the running away business. I thought it would get easier with time, but it is only getting harder. I sometimes just stand in the middle of the room at daycare holding her when it is time to drop her off. It's embarrassing, but I don't care!
