Alright, so, June! Little miss June Bug, what has she been up to the past 3 months? We've been dealing with reflux. Wee! It started at or around 2 months. She's always been a spitter, sometimes it seemed as if she spit up everything she ate, but around then she also started to fuss during feedings. She went from nursing for about 17 minutes (because she was small and half asleep) to like, 7 maybe. If I was lucky. We didn't really figure it out and get it under control until a few weeks ago. She'd fuss during feedings but she was gaining weight (and then some!) and sleeping well. In fact, for a while she was going to bed around 6, waking up at midnight, and sleeping until about 7.
It was awesome, and didn't last, sadly.
When she started arching her back and really screaming during feedings and naptime is when I was convinced and convinced my doctor that this is what we were dealing with. We started her off on liquid Zantac and after that stopped working got her on some Prevacid, which is where we are now and it seems to be working so far. It's amazing, AMAZING, to be able to have calm feedings and to have her sleep without screaming.
Honestly though, other than feedings and bedtime, this girl is a happy girl. At her 2 month appointment she weighed 11 lbs. In both height and weight she's in the 74%! Insane, since Wyatt never got above 5% in weight. Ever. Still. She has her 4 mth appointment next week and I'm looking forward to seeing where she's at.
She sleeps well. We're still putting her to bed after 2 hours of wakefulness, and she roughly naps around 8:45, noonish, and around 3:30ish and is down for the night between 6-7. Give or take depending on her naps. The fact that we're on a semi-schedule before 4 months is awesome.
She loves Wyatt, thinks he's hilarious. She's just starting to really laugh and we're all trying our best to get it out of her all day long. Wyatt usually is the winner. It's been so fun to watch those two and I can't wait for their relationship to continue to develop.
Just before school started my family went to Lake Powell. I went back and forth about going, it's my very favorite vacation, but in the end I chose to stay home with June. Too hot, and I wouldn't feel comfortable taking her in it. It ended up being so fantastic. For days on end it was just the two of us. Quiet, calm, serene. We napped, we went shopping to places that would have been hard to take Wyatt to. I cleaned the entire house and it stayed clean all week! Imagine! It was so nice to spend the time alone with her. But I did miss my boys (who had a fantastic time, of course. Wyatt hasn't stopped talking about it).
We love this little June Bug. There isn't a shortage of love and hugs and kisses and tickles around here. I am a very, very lucky mama.
