Maddie's Close Up...














So it's been quiet the month! We are just trying to adjust to our new little addition. Madelyn is the BEST baby ever! Seriously, all she does is sleep and eat. She likes to be up from 8pm to midnight and then she goes back to sleep. Rarely she'll wake up during the day to look and play with us and then she'll go back to sleep! She rarely cries and I still have to set an alarm to wake her up during the night so she can eat. She is still TINY! I weighed her at 5 weeks and she weighed 8lbs 2ozs. So she is gaining weight, but definatly not like Grant did! At 2 months he weighed 12lbs! So I know I'm going to have to get used to her growing at her own rate, not like Grants. The only problem we've encountered so far is that she has acid reflux so we have to give her a prescription everyday to help her with that. I worry she doesn't keep enough down, but she's starting to get better. We just do A LOT of laundry for her several times a week. It's not just a little spit up here or there, its only about once a day that she does it and its PROJECTILE (about 2 to 3 feet out) and I would estimate about 3 ozs. comes up every time. So when it started happening I knew it wasn't normal spit up. But it doesn't seem to bother her at all and she seems to be gaining weight, so all is well:) I am nursing her so for those of you who knows how that went with Grant you will know that its a BIG deal that I am nursing her! So we are thankful that its going well. Well that's about it. I'll update later this next week with pictures of Grant and Madelyn's nursery and Grant's big boy bedroom!

Oh she is so beautiful! I cant believe you can clip a bow into her hair! Sorry about the reflux. That projectile vomiting is really something. But it sounds like she's a little angel. I'm so glad breast feeding is going well. That's so great. I can't wait to meet her!
