Mary & Nicholas 7-17-03 (non-refluxer)allergies, asthma on Singulair and Flovent & Aidan 1-28-07(my refluxer)Nissen Fundoplication on June 20, 2008, FTT, MSPI, DGE, ear tubes, allergies and severe GERD now currently taking just Prevacid and drinking Elecare Vanilla 1+.
18 month well baby
My baby is finally well at a well baby appt. YEAH! This is the first time we just discussed normal developmental stuff and not a long list of other issues. It was so weird. Aidan did lose a pound since we last saw them and so he weighs 24 pounds and is almost 33 inches. We aren't concerned about the weight given that he just had a Nissen a few months ago and lost a few pounds then and is probably still trying to gain that back. Since I didn't post an update below I just wanted to update that my older son Nick started Kindergarten on Monday and I put some pics of him in his school uniform on my blog at I am glad PAGER is back I missed you all!

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Yay for a "well" well check, lol. Our kids started here today. Many of my 4yo's at school went to k5. It was exciting for them, but a few were whiney at after school :)

Awww...Nick looks so grown up! That's wonderful news about Aidan. I'm sure he'll gain that weight back soon - he looks great!
