Update on Ella

After about a month of non-stop crying and two different meds, Ella is finally a changed baby.  She has been cooing and smiling.  All around happy and predictable.  It has been a very welcomed change.

She is currently on Prevacid for acid reflux. For those of you that don't know what that is or remember what it is, acid reflux disease occurs when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus. Most babies will be over acid reflux by the time they are a year old. The Prevacid has given my poor little girl some much needed relief and we are so grateful for it!

She had her two month appointment yesterday. She now weighs 10 pounds 11 ounces putting her in the 48% for weight. She is still super long measuring in at 23 1/2 inches putting her at 85% for length. I think she may end up being taller than Kaylee.

One of the best things about her feeling better is that she is sleeping longer which means that I am getting more sleep.  The last two nights she has slept about 10 hours between feedings. Before the Prevacid, I was lucky if she slept 3 hours without waking up in pain. For this, I praise the Lord. I know that there are people praying for my little Ella and for our rest. The Lord has answered those prayers! Thank you for praying!

It's been a while since I have added my joyful moment - so here is one for today...
Joyful Moment of the Day: Kaylee, Ella, and I all danced together this morning to music. A very special Mommy moment.


  1. How do you get the time to blog this Krista? Yipes I've given myself 30 minutes a day to be on the computer, let along fb. I usually end with about 25. Thanx for the giggly little smiley face. Our Savannah is in bed napping with a smileon. God bless you all, in his loving grace. Lesson learned for me? Panic is a road block to a solution. Frustration is taking the wrong turn. Lovely family, and beautiful gifts from God! Jusme, Awesome Uncle Vince, Kelly and girls. (great uncle is berating.LOL)

  2. Hurray!!! So glad that Ella is feeling better and that you're getting sleep. Those are two important ingredients for a happy family.
