check up

Emma had her two month check up this morning and it went relatively well. Emma is in the 50th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference. She is 22 1/2 inches long, 10 lbs 8 ounces, and her head circumference is 15 inches (not that you all care how big her head is...haha). So, that is good news, especially since we struggled with weight gain in the beginning. On the down side, Emma has reflux. I had suspected this all along and the doctor confirmed it. This is why she is so gassy, has trouble sleeping, and spits up so much. So, we're going to be adding rice cereal to her bottle (when she takes one) and start her on Zantac. Hopefully that will take care of it, but only time will tell. Emma got four shots today and screamed harder than I have ever seen her sad! She settled right down once I gave her a paci and she even fell asleep in the car on the way home. And as I write, she is sleeping peacefully next to me!

I hope the medicine works for her. I have heard alot of babies get that. They thought Logan had it but because he was sleeping and all they didn't want to give him the medicine. Thanks for the comment on my page! We love you too! And there will be lots of pictures of the beach trip. I can't wait to see you!!!!
