Quinn update

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes!

We got Quinn off the bottle (amazingly easily) and transitioned from horrible tasting/smelling elemental formula onto real milk, with very little issue! I was so hoping that his milk protein allergy would go away and it seems to have.

- I am now even weaning him off reflux meds (he's been on huge doses of both Zantac and Prevacid) and tomorrow we may try to go med free for the first day

- The little guy has finally started to: roll over, rock on his knees, crawl backwards a few inches, crawl forward maybe 1 inch, and loves to pull him self up to standing anytime he can, and I've found him sitting up in his crib a few times too! (just a month ago he wasn't doing anything). Now we have started him on weekly PT, but I wonder if going on real milk had anything to do with his recent gains. They started at the same time (real milk and the real gross motor skills).

-The PT is still concerned, that he always clenches his fists and toes and easily gets upset.

The best news is that his incessant crying has decreased - oh he still has his spells (I know when it's really bad when my next door neighbor asks about him), but it's getting so much better and (3000% easier).

Kaitlyn has gotten sick again with her 2nd summer cold. Hopefully it will be a quick one!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting, I've been crazed with work (a good thing) and blogging has had to take the back seat lately!

I Pledge of Allegiance

Our smart little girl! While we were on vacation we realized that Kaitlyn knew the entire Pledge of Allegiance. We think she learned it in her Special Education class. Thank you Mrs. Gail Wish! Turn up your volumn as Kaitlyn's voice is quiet!
