One month old!

Wow, it's been a while since I posted... sorry about that. Every day I think about posting a picture or writing something up but unfortch it hasn't been a great past week here in the G household so spare time has been spent catching some zzz's.

Chase started off life with a pretty good sleeping schedule but last week he started waking every hour to hour and half. Needless to say, I wasn't getting much sleep and neither was Chase so together we were very tired and emotional. There were several joint crying sessions.
And unfortunately sleep deprivation plays into every other facet of life... it determines how much I get done around the house, how much I can do outside of the house, how feeding goes (we are both still learning how to breastfeed), if I get a shower that day, ect... not to mention the havoc it reeks on my mind. So like I said, it's been a rough week. He still isn't sleeping enough so any prayers that you guys might want to toss out there would be greatly appreciated.

Here are a few pictures of the little man... I can already see changes in him. I think he is fattening up a little although he is still pounds behind some of his friends!

Chase showing off his "I Love Daddy" onesie... still a little big but cute nonetheless!

This is Chase in his carseat getting ready to go out... I just love the look that Adam captured!

Adam and I actually made it out this past Friday to the Bay Area Golden Globes where our church awarded those that volunteer and serve... a small thank you for all they do. This is Seth with his award! Congrats Seth!

Family shot! Chase didn't adhere to the 'black tie optional' and wore his CK sweat suit!

Seriously, how Guido does he look... I love it!

So, I started this post a couple days ago and I have an update... I just spoke to Chase's pediatrician because I was becoming very concerned about his fussiness and not sleeping... she thinks that he has baby acid reflux. He has a lot of the symptoms and this is about the age that it surfaces. We have an appointment tomorrow afternoon and hopefully we will be starting medicine. Please keep us in your prayers that this is it and we can get some relief!

Wow, has it been a month? Prayers are on the way, hopefully the Dr. and meds help! I'm cranky now with uncomfortable sleepless nights, I know it doesn't get any better. We're still waiting here...I'm ready but scared, and my parents are really getting anxious. I think they are worried about how big my belly is scary looking.

Awwww, honey. First, the pictures are, as always, adorable! I can't believe it's been a month already. I'm sorry you've had a bad few weeks, but after a few years, you won't remember it. Lol, sorry...but it's true.

The acid reflux thing, poor baby (and you). Does he spit up? Does his breath smell bad? Let us know what the dr. says...and of course we'll pray for you babe.
Big hug to all.

Hopefully these two sites will be a help to you. The second site - order the DVD if you don't have it - it really helps the baby and you.
