Quick Update

Hi everyone:

Quick update (I hope to post more tomorrow with some new pictures). Matthew saw the GI specialist in Greensboror last week and was given a new medication to try. Needless to say--he could not take it as it made him much worse so we have stopped the medication. Basically, unless he stops eating or drops in his consumption (as he is at the lower limit on what is acceptable) or loses weight, there is nothing else they can really do as we have tried most of the medications for reflux for infants (that they feel would work anyway) so we are now going to try and wait for Matthew to out grow the reflux. In the meantime, we are trying co-sleeping to see if that will be better than sleeping in a recliner.

Thomas is doing great and is getting big.

They had their 6 month check up yesterday and Thomas weighed 19 pounds 9 ounces and is 27.5 inches long and Matthew weighed 16 pounds 14 ounces and is 26 inches long. They got their 6 month shots and their first flu shot and Matthew ended up with a fever from them.

Otherwise all is good and I hope to post some pictures from our first Thanksgiving--it was great to have Grandma Lilli and Aunt Lisa visit and we have some great pictures to post with them.

Reed, Sue, Matthew and Thomas
