1 year

It was one year ago today that I had my second IUI which resulted in my BFP with Chase. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. Today also marks the first time he sat up by himself. I usually recline him back into the boppy next to me while I check email or watch tv, but today he decided that he didn't want to recline and pulled himself up into a sitting position. So, I plopped him in his bumbo seat and he sat in it, big as he pleased, kicking his feet and jabbering and drooling all over himself. My baby is getting so big :`(

He is a stubborn one too. Cereal time with a bottle is a daily battle of the wills and usually takes him about an hour of goofing around with it before he relents and takes it. Funny thing is, if I take the bottle away and say "ok, you must not be hungry" he fusses loudly. Stinker.

We had the appointment with the GI specialist about his reflux last week but didn't get much out of it except a prescription for prevacid. The prevacid isn't doing much either (he threw up quite a bit of milk today) but then he probably isn't getting too much of it because he does everything he can to not let me put the dropper in his mouth, then he spits it out. It's a liquid and the pharmacist had to mix it. After I turned in the script, they called and said I couldn't pick it up for two hours because they had to mix and watch it. Whatever that means. Anyway, I get it and it's sodium bicarbonate mixed with lansoprazole. Yum. No flavoring or anything and if the faces he makes are any indication, it's utterly disgusting. I'm about to scrap the whole thing and just deal with the vomiting. He hasn't had any of the weird spazzing spells lately and I'm hoping he's just grown out of that. But then again, maybe the medicine is working...I don't know.

He has his 4 month check up next week and it will be interesting to see what his stats are then. I don't think the nurse there does a very accurate job of measuring him. We'll see how they compare with what we got at the GI specialist office, 16lbs 4oz, 26.5 inches tall.


  1. Just look at your little man! So cute!

  2. Chase is such a big boy!! And wow, is he handsome :) I hope you find a solution to the vomiting/reflux issue. While it must be so uncomfortable for him at times, at least he's gaining good weight. (have you tried zantac?)
