It's been awhile.

I haven't updated in quite awhile. Sorry! We've been busy busy here. Mommy went back to work and is having a hard time adjusting. I miss Avery a lot when I'm at work. It's hard to concentrate on my job when I'm thinking about her all the time. It probably doesn't help that I don't like my job. I talked with my manager last week and told her I wasn't happy working on that floor. I told her I was looking for outside employment if necessary. She has been great about it and is working with me to find another position somewhere else in the hospital. Rumor is that the ED has a position open on day shift so I might be moving down there. ICU may have something too. I just think my 12 hours would be more bearable if I was going somewhere I enjoyed.

I took Avery to the doctor last Monday. She has been spitting up a lot and even had some projectile vomiting. I thought she might have some reflux. She did end up having reflux and has been doing a lot better just doing "reflux precautions". Keep her elevated for 30 minutes after meals, elevate her head of the bed, etc. She wrote me a prescription for her reflux if I felt like I need it, but she's doing much better now without it. She weighed 13lbs 10oz at the appointment! She's getting so big! I can't believe she was the same baby that didn't get back to her birth weight for 3 weeks! She seems to have had no trouble catching up.

Avery has been sleeping in her crib in her own room the last few nights. She may or may not be back to sleeping through the night. I won't say because I don't want to jinx myself! It's been nice for her to be in her own crib but I miss her being with me. I would be just as happy to have her still sleep with me if I knew it wouldn't be harder to get her into her own bed when she gets older. She seems to be sleeping better when it's quiet too. That took me awhile to figure out since she wanted some noise since she was born.

I can hear someone stirring on the baby monitor...I'm gonna go love on my baby.

Love you all!

The results are in...

Avery has no hearing problems. They said there may be a bit of residual fluid on her right ear. I have to keep an eye out for ear infections. Other than that her hearing is perfect!

She has no problems with her hips. There is no evidence of hip dysplasia and she has good stability in the joints. What a relief!

Avery's cousin, Nathaniel Owen, arrived on Feb 25th at 9:28am. He was 7lbs 5oz and 22 in. He is so cute! I'll post pics soon.
