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!
