Long overdue update

Okay, we've been a little busy the last month. Jack was diagnosed with reflux about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Before that, he was crying a ton and in some pain (turns out, that's what too much stomach acid will do to a baby). Now, he's on Zantac (don't worry, they make it in a liquid for babies) and we have switched from breastfeeding to a hypoallergenic formula (much to my dismay, but much better for Jack's esophagus and tummy). We're finally getting into something of a routine, just in time for me to go back to work.

Not everything over the past month has been a struggle though. Jack has started smiling and laughing (even more so now that we have his diet and his meds figured out!). We were also visited by the Easter Bunny. And now that we've started working on routines, we're also reading bedtime stories. This parenting thing gets better and better every day.

So, I return to work on Monday. I'm not going to talk much about that because there really isn't much to say. On the bright side, Steve will be home with Jack for two weeks. I think they're really going to have some fun while I'm away. I've heard plans of baseball watching (the Cubs won today!) and some visits to friends. I will be jealous.

Now for the fun... here are some photos from the past month!
