Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
Off the the farm -- way OT
My dad's girlfriend has a horse farm. I used to spend a lot of time there before Lauren, but haven't set foot in the barn in almost 2 years now. Today I finally gave in to my dad and took her out there. Please do not pay any attention to the way we're dressed, lol, we were at the farm :)

The first few pictures are Lauren and the 2 baby goats. They are 2 months old and about the size of house cats right now. They love to be held. Lauren was afraid at first, but after a few minutes she was chasing them. The male tried to head butt her at one time, it was pretty funny.

The last picture is of Lauren and our horse Doc. He is the sweetest animal! He was nuzzling her with his nose and she just took right to him. She wasn't afraid at all!

It was just such a nice afternoon I wanted to share :) Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Lauren and doc

I love the goats! They are so cute, I want one! I really do. That'll be so neat for her to grow up with them.

What cute pics! Looks like a great day. I love her hair-looks like Aubrey's!!! I grew up on a farm and I love visiting. We live in the country so we visit everyone else's animals. Love the pic of her in the bathing suit. How cute!

yes Melissa, these goats are meant to be pets, not for meat or milk. They have leashes for them and everything! The idea is to handle them as much as possible so they are willing to accept humans in their "herd". You could get one and then retire your lawn mower :)

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
What a nice day. My fave is the one in your siggy...it looks so sweet with you and Lauren touching the horse!! She is getting too big!!!

The horse pic is precious. I did not grow up around a farm but Michael did. His parent's still live in the country but do not have any animals now. At our house there is a lady near there that raises Donkeys. She right now has 1 that is about a week old. It is darling. We dont live no where near the country though to have any animals. The lady near our house has it in a big field. Here is a pasture of donkeys in an upscale rural neighborhood. There is honestly no one to call on her b/c she is not breaking any laws. A lot of the homeowners are mad around her. I am afraid that will cause us some renters but Lord willing we will get a good renter that won't destroy our house. I am going to take the kids the Nature Center here on Thursday. Bradden hasn't really been around animals so I am hoping he is OK with it. How long will it be before Lauren can ride the horse. My kids would love that.

We lost our pony last winter, so I don't know when I'll put Lauren on a horse to ride. The pony was the smartest horse we ever had -- and I would honestly trust him with her. We would put kids on him as soon as they could walk well...on a lead of course!
