Great weekend with great friends

We had such a fun weekend at camp with the Styles family. The babies loved all the extra love and attention that they got from everyone and I loved having people to visit with and help with the babies while Ben ice fished.

Friday Matthew had his evaluation at the Noggin Clinic and it was determined that he needs to have a helmet. We are not looking forward to that considering he has been so crabby lately we are sure he will be totally upset with having to wear that 23 hours per day.

Matthew has always been one of the harder of the four but the past couple weeks have been rough. He has been crying for long periods of time several times a day and spitting up a lot. When he does it is sour and curdled looking so the doctor decided today to put him on Zantac to see if that makes a difference and we are thinking about trying soy formula as well. A lot of people have said that the Zantac has made a huge difference for their babies so I home that it will for Matthew too. I hate seeing him so miserable.

Kennedy has been here this week helping out with the babies and they just love her! It is amazing that she is going to be 13! I can remember her being as small as the babies and taking care of her and now she is changing diapers, helping feed, dress and bathe them. They just love her and Ben and I wish she could move her in here permanently!

The babies had their home health check up yesterday and they are growing well. They seem to be hitting the 4 month milestones and it amazes us how much they are doing already. Brady weighed in at 18 lbs, Matthew and Cameron tied at 15 lbs 1 oz and Aubrey is still the little peanut at 12 lbs 8 oz.

  1. OMG Kari. Brady is bigger than my girls! You sure know how to grow them. I hope the Zantac works for poor Matthew. Addison was really in pain and spitting up curdled milk too and then we put her on Zantac and Prevacid. We didn't have to use the Prevacid long though. She was a different baby after that. We just weened the girls from Zantac last week and they are fine now.

    It must be nice to have Kennedy with you. I don't know how we would do things without my mom here. Having that extra help is amazing. We are having our home health check up this Saturday and I hope we get a good report as well.
