Now we know...

Continuing on from yesterdays updates, at around 6 weeks old we found out that Lucca was having some vomitting issues so we switched him to SOY thinking he may be allergic to milk, well he only got worse, so we switched him back to regular formula... when he never got better we had to get his stool tested and found out that he had blood in his stool, so he had a severe milk protein allergy and now they have us on Nutramagin formula which he is doing much better on. Also, after a visit to the ER, we found out the reason why he vomits (no, not spit up...vomit) so much is because he has GERD (Gastro-esopageal reflux disease).. yay! So hopefully by 4 months the doc says he should outgrow it. *fingers crossed* hopefully! It is really hard to do a feeding in public because he spits up soooo much, ever hours after he has never know when its gunna come lol. I can't wait until we can go out and stay out for more than 3 hours and not have to rush home to get his feeding done. But that day will come I am sure.

He is growing very well... at his 1 month appt he was around 8 lbs. and 20 1/4 in. at his 2 month he was 9lbs 2 oz , 22in. and his 3 month appt is May 5th so we will see!

He started smiling and laughing around 8-10 weeks and rolled over for the first time when he was 10 weeks old =) He is starting to get his own little personality and he LOOOVVES his binky.. do NOT take that away from him lol.

He is now 3 months old, and we just started feeding him rice cereal. He likes it and hates it.. but it is so funny to watch him spit it out! Next month we start fruits!

I am back at work now and it has been the hardest thing for me to leave him every morning, but the BEST feeling when I come home to his smile at night! I love it! Now, he just needs to start sleeping thru the night!
