So here is the reality of having a new born, a 4 year old, and a 2 year old. Let me start by saying 4 years old is definitely an age I'm not enjoying all that much and newborns....well, anyone who has had a baby, knows just exactly how time consuming, joyful, exhausting, trying, beautiful and hard they can be.

We got Christian on acid reflux medicine when he was a week old. He seemed to be doing better.

WEEK 1: Brought Christian home from the hospital. Libby had the flu. Put Christian on acid reflux medicine.

WEEK 2: Jade got the flu.

WEEK 3: My brother John's wedding. Almost took Christian to ER for trouble breathing b/c of cold he had gotten from the girls....we didn't end up having to.

WEEK 4: Had to put him on medicine to get over his chest cold. Still noticed he was in a great deal of pain. Tested his poop and discovered blood so I was put on a milk-free (no dairy) diet. That means no milk, cheese, sour cream, butter, etc... This has seemed to work so hopefully I won't have to take out soy as well. Oh yeah, let's not forget no chocolate.

So that's how it has gone so far. Enough said!!!


  1. Erin, I feel terrible that I haven't congratulated you yet on Christian! Can't belive you had a boy!! I was going thru my old Facebook messages and came across your message with your blog. So, I thought I'd check it out. Sounds like you have had a rough start. I can't imagine having 3 kids, as 1 is a lot of work, but so worth it. I hope the girls are adjusting well and are helpful (I'm sure Libby is?). Anyway, congrats to you!! Seems like forever since I've seen you. Take care!

  2. got tested right away on the reality of Motherhood! And...I'm sure you handled it very well!! Auntie Sarah

  3. Ugh I had to do the whole no dairy with Ryan & Im not going to lie I thought it totally sucked but helped out Ryan soooo much!! Hopefully its gone smoother! :)
