Where Have I Been???

So it's been way too long since I updated, and while I understand why it has been so long, it makes me sad because this is my way of remembering, and so much happens everyday with the kids that I'm not recording anywhere.

Over the past month so much has happened...first, Colton was released from the hospital feeling so much better. He was doing so much better that I almost decided against going in to the pediatrician for a follow-up, but I ended up going in, and thank goodness I did! When she asked me how he was doing, I casually mentioned how fussy he had become. I blew it off, stating that I obviously know that babies go through fussy times, and at 6 weeks it made sense to me that he was entering a new phase. She asked me some questions and explained that he could have silent reflux, which is reflus without the usualy symptoms (spitting up, only being able to be upright, etc.). By the next day he was so miserable and screaming his head off that I called in and she was able to call-in a prescription for Zantac and his has been a new baby since then! We have had to up his dosage once and I think he may be due for that again, but outside of that, he's doing so well!

Along with feeling better, Colton has also been smiling and today, for the first time, I was able to get him laughing by tickling him :) He has gotten so big - long not fat, which is so unusual for my kids!

In other family news, our wonderful nanny that we have had for the past 7 months moved away last weekend :( It was really hard for all of us since we had gotten so attached to her (especially since I had been spending so much time with her since I'd been home). Thankfully, yesterday we hired our new nanny whom I am super excited about! The kids love her and I truly hope and pray that everything works out since I have to go back to work in 2 weeks :(

This week is spring break for the kids, so I'm excited about not having to get up so early so that I can be ready to go when the kids wake up...we can all sleep-in and have lazy days with no where that we have to go.

I think that's it for the updates for now...I truly hope that I can be better about updating and I will try to get some more pictures up!
