Emma is Growing!

Good news from the Dr. today. Emma is now 6 pounds 15 ounces. I guess that an ounce a day weight gain is what "they" like to see, and she is over that, so YAY! I am going to bring her back in at 3 weeks just to make sure she is still doing well, but I think that we are in the clear. I am able to nurse her twice as long as I could before. It is still pretty painful, but nothing like it was before. I can't wait for it to be easy, but I am just taking it one day at a time. She is such a good baby and sleeping really well. She is still sleeping with me, but I will start moving her to her own bed once this nursing gets a little easier. I can't wait to be able to nurse her in bed too. Sitting up in the middle of the night for extended periods of time is a bummer!

Our Dr. also wrote Bennett, Rachel and I orders to have a Celiac Disease Panel done. Rachel will also get food allergy tested. I have been suspecting that she might have an allergy that I don't know about. I am just praying it isn't corn. The doc doesn't really think that the Celiac test is necessary once you test intolerant to gluten, but I want a little more confirmation. I think it will help Jeromy and maybe others to be more careful with the kids and what they eat. Bennett especially is pretty miserable if he eats wheat.

I have Easter pictures that need to be downloaded, but Emma is awake and squawking, so you'll have to wait!
