Maeci-2 months

It's hard to believe that Maeci is 2 months old already! It fun though now because she is smiling like crazy and starting to talk and coo all the time! Today everything checked out ok with her at her appointment. She is a chunk weighing in at 13 lbs 10 oz and 24 inches long. Just a week ago she weighed 12 lbs 8 ozs and was 23 inches at the pediatrician appointment we had...2 different scales so it won't be the same. Camden at 2 months weighed 14 lbs 11 oz. Last week we took her to the peds doc in Sioux City because we are continuing to have problems with her taking her bottle without getting uncomfortable or crying. They ending up putting her on prevacid once a day for the "silent" acid reflux and had us change to a formula that had some rice starch in it to see if that would settle her tummy! It's not that she spits up, it just comes up into her mouth/throat and then goes back down and it bothers her and she gets irritated. They told us to give this medicine/formula a week and if it hasn't got better than we would see a Pediactric GI Specialist. Well the medicine seems to be working a little but she is still have tummy issues and can't get through a bottle without becoming uncomfortable. So I called back the peds doc and she decided we needed to be referred to the specialist just to make sure nothing else is going on. There are not alot of those type of specialist around here and the ones that actually are in are not covered in our insurance network. Brad has pretty good insurance but when it comes these docs I guess they are not covered. We found numerous pediatric specialists in Des Moines that are covered under our insurance so we have an appointment down there August 31st. I wish it was sooner but I guess it takes a long time to get into these kind of docs since there are not many of them around! Anyways we are hoping nothing major is going on with her and we hope this gets better! But overall she is doing pretty good! She still is sleeping alot during the day but I can't keep her awake. She still sleeps pretty good through the night too. She usually sleeps the first 4 1/2 hours and then after that it's about every 3 hours...we have had our fair share of bad nights though where she wants to get up every 1-2 hours! Well I am back to work tomorrow and I am dreading it! The kids don't start back at daycare until next Monday! It's going to take awhile to get back in a routine of getting the kids to daycare and going to work! Ahhhh this past 8 weeks went way to fast!!!
