Hi ladies! I've been checking in here & there and responding to what I can.. it's been tough!

Parker had his well-baby visit on Monday, good timing because I really needed to talk to the ped. about his reflux. MAN it's gotten nasty.
He's up to 7lbs15oz from his birth weight of 7lbs10oz, which is the 25th percentile and is in the 75th for height so far.

We got him on Axid for reflux twice a day, which is like Zantac without the alcohol. I feel like his dosage may need to be upped, because he is happy as a clam fr a couple of hours after his first dose and then everything goes to pure hell before his 2nd dose. He screamed for most of the day today, waking Holden from his nap twice. I really felt like I was going to lose it, but then I popped him in his carseat and took him and Holden outside and in 2 minutes flat he was knocked OUT. It always worked for Holden, too.

Holden is adjusting MUCH better now. He doesn't hate me anymore and helps me burp Parker and brings him everything he needs. He is VERY jealous when Thomas is holding him though. Go fig.

Things are getting better. Tomorrow will be my 3rd day alone with both boys.. it's been tough, I won't lie!

Here are some new pics

I need a new camera!

They are both so cute! I hope the meds really help. Acid reflux can be awful (I know how miserable I feel right now so I can only imagine how terrible little babies feel with it).

im glad you got him on med. and hoefully you can up the dose for his and your sake. its also good to know holdens ajusting better. sounds like it wont be long now before hes ok with everything. not to bad considering the time frame. its so difficult but some kids take forever to adjust. i know what its like to be home with two kids alone. i was from teh day i left the hospital. hopefully it wont be long before you can figure out a new schedule that works best for you guys. i think it took me a little over a week to get one down. i dont know what im going to do this time. im really hoping for another baby like my first. he was so content to sleep and lounge. we shall see. i love the pictures i think he looks alot like his big brother. what a handsome bunch. holdens smile is to dye for also! its soo sweet. i hope things calm down soon goo dluck!

I hope the reflux gets better for your little man soon. He is so cute and I'm so glad that Holden is making the adjustment. It's a big life change for our little ones, but sounds like he made it through the worst of it.

Sorry to hear about the reflux. My 2nd had bad reflux! It was scary for me.

Glad you are doing well on your own though... it gets easier.

DH went back to work last night so I had a half day with the kids on my own, and today was my first day all on my own with all 7. OY!
