Where we've been....

Hello's been awhile. Where have we been you ask? Not sleeping, that's for sure. :)

As most of you know, we have been dealing with an extremely fussy baby lately and after severaly trips the Pediatrician, the Pediatric GI doctor and 6 days in Childrens Hospital it was determined that there is absolutley nothing major wrong with our sweet baby Isaiah, except that he has an "inmature" stomach and he will grow out of it anytime between 6 weeks and 4 months. What does this mean? Well, we have to buy him a ridiculously expensive formula called "Neocate," and we have to deal with the taradacytle sounding scream for 20 hours a day.

After reading endless message boards on colic and dismotility, they all say the same thing...push through, this too shall pass, don't worry, it will get better...and lo and behold, last night I took this picture of my baby boy above.

We are not out of the woods just yet, but we are having more and more moments like these with a smiling and content baby for an hour at a time. Thankfully, we are blessed with a healthy baby boy and if takes a couple of months of screaming for a lifetime of a healthy boy then I will take the screaming any day.

Jackson is doing fabulous with his new baby brother and he is oh so very helpful as you can see from the other picture. He loves to hold Isaiah and help feed him his bottle. He even gets the pacifier on his own when Isaiah starts crying. Jackson will be 2 years old in a couple of weeks and I can't believe how fast the time has gone.
Thank you all for your prayers and concern during this crazy time....I know the end of the crying is near, and I am so thankful for all of you! I also am so blessed to have such a supportive husband who has missed many a day of work and canceled many a meeting to help out at home.
So, that's where we have been.....and why I haven't blogged in a while....Thank you Lord for the gift of my two baby boys and my handsome husband!
