grrr...reflux!!!

Hey everyone!! Just thought we'd post a quick update on how our little guy is doing. He is now 4 weeks old, which is amazing! He weighed in at 7 pounds 14 ounces at the doctor yesterday. So he has gained 1 pound and 13 ounces since leaving the hospital. When you're as little as he is, that's a lot!! :) The bummer is that our little guy has really bad reflux. That basically means his food tries to come back up. So lots of spitting up, and lots of pain for him. :( He is having a hard time sleeping cause when he lays down it makes it worse. So we got a wedge for his crib to keep him inclined. It helps sometimes but he also like scoot down off of it! Silly guy. The doctor has started him on baby Zantac which will help with the pain and the sleeping, hopefully, but not the spitting up. Sleep has been difficult for Sarah since he grunts in pain even in his sleep. And with the monitor on, he might as well be grunting in her ear!! So please pray that the baby Zantac will help him sleep better and not be in so much pain. Here's one cute pic from recently! We have more to upload. This is him asleep on Daddy. :)

We can't believe Jayden will be three weeks old tomorrow. Time sure does fly!!! He has stopped his frequent visits to the pediatrician which is great. And at his check up last week, he was up to 7 pounds and 19 3/4 inches. So he's growing a lot and can finally fit into some of his newborn stuff and some of his preemie sized clothes are getting a little snug. Yay!! Thanks for checking in. We love it when you comment!!! And we love all of you.

10 days old today!

Hey everyone!! Well Jayden is 10 days old today. It has flown by in a lot of ways. We've had an eventful week or so since we brought him home. His umbilical cord stump started bleeding quite a bit last Monday night and we ended up in the ER with him early Tuesday morning. The doctor said he was fine (which he was) but we have been back to the doctor four more times for it since. But FINALLY on Friday our pediatrician declared him all better on Friday! So we are now bestest friends with our pediatrician, who we adore! And then on Thursday Sarah landed herself in the ER with a severe urinary tract infection which required some serious painkillers and antibiotics but all is well now and we think life is getting back to "normal". We are definitely tired, definitely don't enjoy being up three times a night, but it is worth it for Jayden!! He is so precious!! Can't say we have any other updates besides those. Here are a few more pics for your enjoyment. We took pics of his first full bath last night but haven't uploaded them yet...SO keep checking back!! We love you all. Thanks so much for all the phone calls, emails, etc. If you've called and we haven't called you back, please refer to the beginning part of this post for an explanation. We are working on returning calls!!
