I know I haven't been blogging lately.  It's definitely been time consuming to be Momma so, I am sure you all understand why I haven't posted.

Most recently, the little one was diagnosed with reflux.  It explains the excessive spit up and the tummy problems in general.  I tried everything suggested to help him but, in the end I had to put him on Zantac.  I wasn't happy about it.  I don't like the idea of putting a 7 week old newborn on medicine.  However, seeing him in pain was heart breaking for me.  He would scream and cry and I would just sit there and cry with him because I felt so helpless.  The medicine seems to be working.  He still spits up but, it isn't as much and the pain seems to have subsided.  He still screams when I try to burp him...I guess he just is conditioned to the pain from it. 

I guess the worry of being Momma has kept me busy.  I understand why my mom was always worried about me when I was growing up.  It just becomes part of who you are as a mother.
