Bittersweet Week (Recap)

It's been a long 5 weeks.. I've had a mommy instinct all along that something was wrong with my little lady. This past week was a VERY trying week for me.. I'm usually very strong and very independent and want to do things ALL by myself.

Monday: This little episode happened and it was BAD... I kinda panicked bc it was the first time she has done this and it was horrible. 

Tuesday: Doctor decided to try Nutramigen formula and take her off breastmilk for 24-48 hours to see what happens... She HATED the formula and wouldn't eat much... Worst night we have had so far LOTS of screaming and crying.. :( She FINALLY pooped after not really having a good diaper in a few days... I had to do a rectal temp reading for this to happen.

Wednesday: Called back to Doctor--decided they wanted to check her out... Weighed in a 9 lbs 12 oz and got diagnosed with Acid Reflux-- which then put us on Zantac and we are waiting until Monday to see what happens on the formula (which in lab breaks the protein down-makes it easier to digest) and the meds. I had two break downs of crying with Adelynn today-- Felt good to get it out.

Thursday: My 28th Birthday (Jeff took off work to help out with Adelynn--I needed a break) So thankful for a husband that is an amazing daddy and helps out so much.... Thank You :)

Woke up to this... Why a trash can you ask?
Olivia wanted me to have one in my bedroom so i dont always use hers and thats what she told Jeff she wanted to get me! 

Mommy and Olivia date to Aquatic Center for "Morning Splash"

My birthday present.... a family car!!! YAY!! Love It!
And on top of getting a new car i got to spend the afternoon just me and the hubby hanging out... I miss those days!  Thanks to papa for being here we spent like 6 hours at the dealership... exhausting--but lots of "us" time :)
Friday: Adelynn did awesome slept from 11:45-5:45 woke up and ate and back to sleep from about 6:30-10:15ish.. Rainy day sleeping in is AWESOME!  I bought this awesome baby bjorn carrier for only 25 bucks! YES a deal! Then Me and the girls went to walmart and got Olivia a new dvd player for the car and then we had a gift card to Mcdonalds so we shared a chicken nugget meal and sundae! Success!

She loves it.

Happy Girl.. Layed here and coo'd and laughed and talked for almost 25 minutes! 

Birthday Dinner at Nakato with my favorites... :) Picture before we left... She's such a goober! :)

Through all the ups and downs this week.... I wouldn't trade any of it.. These moments pass by so quickly... So thankful for such awesome family and friends... love yall.

  1. Do you think you have an overactive letdown? I did with Hannah and would spit up alllllll the time. She was fine, just getting too much milk.

    Yay for a new car!
