Baby Ben

Today I had an ultrasound of my little baby Ben.  There is nothing better than getting an ultrasound and having the doctor tell you that everything looks absolutely perfect.  That was music to my ears!  All of his organs are functioning correctly and the little man in looking like a million bucks.  As Dr. Melendez was doing the ultrasound he was like, "Wow!  This is one active baby.  You better get ready for this little guy.  He won't hold still for me to measure him."  Oh boy.  I thought Jax was as curious as they came, but it sounds like I am going to have my hands full with two little munchkins.

Ben weighs about 1 pound right now.  That is terrible to hear when I have gained much more than 1 pound!  I wanted him to be pushing like 10 pounds so I had an explanation for the weight gain!  But, lucky for us this little boy looks healthy and perfect.

Oh, those are the most precious pictures! It makes me ALMOST ready for another one! So cute. I'm glad to hear that everything looks good! By the way, I think I'm ready to revisit the gym tomorrow, so I would love to have a partner and Greg would love to lend his babysitting services to you!

what a perfect little head! He already looks so cute, just like his big bro. I had SO much fun watching Holland and Jax play the other day. I hope they get over their bullying and can develop a deep love for one another. I'm all about arranged marriages now that I have a little girl. I have already lathered on the sun tan oil and plan on piercing my belly button for this summer's pool days. I hope to live there, just to give you and your family a heads up. oh and you might want to change your profile info...saying that Chase wants to be Larry H. Miller right about now, sounds a bit suicidal.

That's such good news! I can't believe you are so far along!
So the next bit was supposed to be sent via email but the yahoo email that I have of yours didn't work so....here's your email:

Hey Goldie-
I got your comment. Ya it was really weird with Kate. She turned 10 months and then started puking ALL the time! When i would lie her down to change her diaper, she'd start convulsing and gagging and then just puke huge amounts! Even if we picked her up a wrong way, she would too. It was so weird. So after so long and bugging my pediatrician, they scheduled a UGI? pretty much we went to the hospital on morning, without her eating that morning and had her drink this drink that picks up on a x-ray machine so they can see if she had acid reflux. And she did. Which was so confusing to me since she had no signs of reflux prior to that. But they told me that she probably did but it just never came out. So they tried a bunch of medications that didn't do the job. The one I highly recommend is Prevacid. That one has been great! THey first gave me this stuff that she had to take 4 times a day, 10 minutes before she could eat...it was annoying and i've just heard some bad things aboiut it...it was called Reglan...it's used to empty the baby's stomach quicker than normal. I don't recommend that to give him. I've heard many thing about it, it affecting their nervous system....anyways, you want Prevacid if it's Acid reflux. I recommend doing the UGI at the hospital to be sure. Just tell your pediatrician your concerns and see if that's possible. Better to be safe than sorry! I hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else!
And i'm sorry about Jax throwing up! I think that was so so hard to watch, your little one just throwing up and there is nothing you can do about it!

Cute little body parts Ben (I'm assuming thats the name you guys chose?)

That will be a crazy life with those two little rugrats.

I am so happy he's getting so big and healthy! That's great news! So, Ben it is. I will have Charlotte start practicing his name now!

..About my hair...I don't know! It just started growing! I love it though. I'm hoping it will be a couple inches longer by summer. My hair girl is great and only trims a bit since I want it longer.

...About the New Year's Resolution #3...I'm not letting anyone read it until I'm finished!I just want the anticipation to grow waiting for the unveiling! Hopefully I will reach my goal soon. HOPEFULLY!

Ashley and Jordan said...

I still can't get over how crazy that is! It looks like Jax has a cute little buddy to look forward to being with... By the way, I haven't seen you in forever. We need to get together soon.

Andrew and Jenna said...

That's so good to hear. And I love his name! I'm sure you haven't gained much weight. You are the cutest pregnant girl, so I can't say I feel too sorry for you :)
