6 Weeks!

Our sweet little Allison is 6 weeks old!

She continues to be an extremely content and sweet baby! We are so very blessed! I feel like I'm the luckiest mommy in the world :)

(I'm not sure why it looks like her hair is a reddish color in the photos... in real life it's not red but more of blonde color)

The poor thing has a rather sensitive digestive system and has been having a lot of difficulty keeping her formula down, especially overnight. It's not certain whether she has a protein sensitivity or severe reflux issues or both or what. Would you believe though that this little sweetie pie is such a doll that she doesn't complain even though she does so much vomiting?! She's truly a sweetheart!

So we have tried a number of different formulas hoping that something will agree with her. She's currently on a soy-based formula to which we've recently started to add a fair amount of rice cereal, and, we have her sleeping in an elevated position rather than flat on her back... and she's been doing tons better! She even slept through the night last night for the first time! :) :) :) So here's hoping that we've discovered the right "recipe" for her.

I can't say enough how blessed we are to have Allison.

Thanks for stopping by... I am really grateful for all of the comments and emails from everyone!
