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.
Brandon's 5 yr
I know he is a former reflux kid, but I am still proud! He is 42.5in and 37.5lbs. He is a former (almost) FTT baby and it is still great to see him on the charts. Granted he is almost 50% in height and only 25% in weight, but I'll take it! He is still holding onto that darn sinus infection so the pedi switched his anti and hopefully this will kick it. I knew he wasn't better yet :-( He can hear perfectly and he vision is better than mine! I could not even read the chart. He says he is now "old" since he is 5. LOL! Oh he has a long ways to go. He had to get his chicken pox booster, but I waited until the nurse came in w/ the shots. He saw them and he gave me this look (it was hard not to laugh) and asked "what are those for?" I told him that him and Aubrey were getting a shot (she got the flu shot) and he started crying right then. Hate to say it but Aubrey does better than him, even tho she quit breathing 2x's but that is normal for her.

Both kids are at school and I have been running errands, emptying the dishwasher and sweeping the floors. What a day to myself! Oh well at least I wasn't battleing the kids also!

Yeah Brandon! I think hearing stories like this gives a lot of moms hope that all will turn out ok. Glad he's doing so well.

That is great news. My dd freaks over shots and my ds doesn't care. Then when they are over and they get a sucker life is good. To bad the chores don't magically go away when you have a day off. I hope you enjoyed the peace and quiet though.

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.
Way to go Brandon!! Can't believe he was FTT, he's come a long way. We waited to do Adam's chic pox shot, I wish we had just got it out of the way. Is Aubrey's flu shot a 2 parter? We have to go back for NAte's and I forgot to ask.

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!
Shots scare Morgan to death! Seriously! I tease her that she's getting one and she almost cries. If it makes you feel better, remember that he's just barely smaller than my 9yr old, lol.

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!
Katie screams like they are tearing her arms off! Once its over she calms down but I don't think she likes being put down. She acts like I am going to leave her there! Yeah right, can't even leave her in the church nursery! LOL! Glad that he is doing well except for the sinus infection which I hope clears up soon!
Check with your
doctor first!
