Check Up!

Just wanted to post a quick update on our doctors appointment today. I went well and Ella started on some reflux meds today. I think is is already helping! Yeah for drugs that work. I love our doctor (she is a family practitioner) the practice she is in is a nice combination of traditional medicine and alternative and is just the right balance for us. Her first line of defense is not to medicate which I like but when it is the right thing to do she does it. We trust her so much. I feel like we are lucky to have her. Ella is already much less cranky with the medicine. It is peppermint flavored (who the hell makes kids medicine that flavor) and she took her first dose fine but I don't know if she will continue to like it we will have to see. She is growing like a weed!

Her new stats are

weight 7 lbs 8.5 oz
length 19 inches

She will be three months tomorrow. It is crazy to think she has gained 5lb 3.5 oz and 5 inches in 13 weeks! She is now in the 25th percentile in weight for her adjusted age (her age from her original due date). She is starting to catch up a little bit at a time. We will be celebrating her 3 month birthday with her grandparents tomorrow. I can't believe that it has been 3 months it has been the longest and quickest 3 months I have ever experienced.
