Hey everyone,

We left this weekend for my parents house across the state. DH and I also got a night out, woohoo, we went out to dinner and to the Paolo Nutini concert in Seattle. It was fun, but DH and I are a disaster in Seattle, we are not city people even though we both grew up nearby.

Before we left Juliana had to go to the doctor for spitting up blood....yeah, can you think of anything more freaky? It was really dark brown and looked to me like she had eaten chocolate (I asked Cori, but really didn't think she'd give away chocolate if she did get her hands on it somehow) Doc checked, it was blood (when it mixes with stomach acid it turns that color). Doc thinks that by having such forceful spit up episodes she has made a small tear in the valve at the top of her stomach. It is self - healing and she hasn't spit up any more blood since that day. Doc is actually calling her reflux GERD now, but she is still unmedicated. She has an appointment next week and I will ask more questions about it. She is thriving and gaining weight though.

Both girls and I have colds now. Well, hopefully it doesn't turn into something worse as we live in a college town (read: swine flu central).

Oh, my ppd is getting better. It is really more like postpartum anxiety/ocd (apparently all of those things are related and therefore grouped under ppd). I've seen a psychologist twice now and don't think I'll need medication.

I am trying to upload more photos for the siggie and new photo contests, but I am having difficulty with photobucket. I'll keep trying today.

I am so glad to get an update. I'm glad you and dh had a good night out. How scary about Juliana. I hope she doesn't do that anymore. I'm glad the ppd is getting better with no meds. I can't wait to see pics.

Sorry I posted in the main board, but I didn't want you to miss being on the siggy. I can't wait to see pics.

I don't care if you post on the main board, Michelle. I just came here because I figured I was updating on things I had mostly written on here. Thanks for thinking of me, I'll definitely get the siggie pic on here soon.

Hey Kellyanne...I'm so glad that you and dh got to have a night out together (eventhough the city was a bit overwhelming) Travis and I have done that once, and we had a great time.

Give Julianna a big hug for me... That is so scary. I hope that her reflux (GERD) get much better...poor little girl!

I'm glad to hear that you are doing better too. Lots of Hugs.
