About a week ago, Sam was diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). It's pretty much just infantile heartburn because his stomach sphincter muscles aren't fully developed yet. The pediatrician has had us reduce the amount of food he gets at each feeding from 4-6 ounces to 2 ounces. In an effort to keep him a little more full and also to make the formula heaver to help keep it down, he also has us putting cereal in the bottles. Dealing with the reflux has been very hard. He cries a lot and gets up a lot more at night than he used to. Ugh. Word is, he'll outgrow it.
Also, in case you haven't heard, Owen and I are moving. The house we have lived in as renters for 2 1/2 years is being put up for sale. We have had the option to buy it and were trying to for some time but Owen has recently been told that his company would like to transfer him to TC in a year or so and so we have decided not to buy it.
Instead, we have just been approved for our new apartment. They are still being built and so we can't move in to them until August but they're really nice and, because of a rental promotion going on right now, we were able to rent a 3-bedroom for a couple hundred dollars a month less than we pay now. Also, the new place has an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a hot tub, a workout facility, free tanning salon and a playground! We are very excited to be the first renters in the new place too. Click here to see our new place (you will have to click on the 3 Bedroom link). Ours is the 3 bed, 2 bath apartment that is 1250 square feet (pictured at the bottom). If you click here, and then click on "amenities" you can see some sample pictures of the interior. Note: this is NOT our stuff. We don't have stuff that nice.
We're moving out of our current house by June 1st. Until we can move into our new apartment, we'll be staying with Owen's mom and dad.
