So, last night was a rough one. Hayden was super fussy, and didn’t sleep soundly all night. Patrick stayed up until 1, and I got up at 1, so he could get some sleep. This past week or two, she’s gotten progressively more fussy. She arches her back and screams when she eats, and wants to be held all the time. She cries while she’s trying to sleep… it’s just pitiful. After last night, we’d had enough… and decided to call the doctor. We went in this morning, and figured out that she has Acid Reflux. The DR gave her a prescription for Zantak… and we’ll hopefully have a much happier baby after a few more doses. Her poor little tummy is hurting her… it breaks my heart! They also weighed her… and I almost fell over! She weighs in at 7lbs and 13 oz now! She gained 25 oz in the past 14 days. The DR said they like to see them gain an ounce a day… Hayden almost doubled that! Haha. Growing girl! After the doctors visit, she finally fell asleep in the car on the way home. I really wanted her to continue to sleep… so… desperate times call for desperate measures. I put her (in her car seat) on the dryer. Yeah, I know… but… IT WORKED!! I got about 2 hours of sleep…. And so did she! Also: funny story. The night before last, Patrick was in the office, and I was in the bedroom with Hayden. Patrick comes out into the living room and calls for me. He says the living room is now a crime scene. Turns out Chloe’s favorite toy… has been murdered. We were tempted to put up crime tape. I’ve included a photo. I’m going to try to bring Buggs back to life this weekend… I think it will require multiple surgeries.
