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!
General update from Jen, Lauren's mom
I am in a much sunnier mood today for a variety of reasons:

1. Dh surprised me and he got a babysitter (my mom) and we went to White Sox game today, just the 2 of us. I hated to leave Lauren at home, but we really needed so alone time.

2. I made 2 meals and they are in my fridge for this week and I have a "menu" for the other days. It def helps to feel prepared. Last year at this time I was on maternity leave so I could cook whenever Lauren napped.

3. Our house is SOLD! What a difference a day can make! And we got a little more $ than we were hoping for! We will be moving at the end of September. It makes me feel overwhelmed, but excited at the same time. My goal is to pack a few boxes a day every night after Lauren goes to bed, so hopefully we'll be ready.

Thank you to everyone for your unconditional support and all the wonderful recipes! I am already working on my shopping list and menu for next week :)

Dh and I have also decided to wait to wean from the Pepcid until the teething settles down. We were all home together this morning and he saw what a clingy monster (in a loving way of course) she has been lately.

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.

OH gosh. I have to go and find your other post and see what happened. I am glad you are in a better mood today. I have a good quick easy recipe. If I have time before surgery I will email it to you. Congrats on the house!!!!

YAY! I'm so happy your house sold. That is great news. I may have to take my own advice and plan supper ahead of time too:) The worst is not knowing what to make!

You are so lucky to have dh surprise you like that. What a guy!!!!!
