Nice to meet you, feet! My name is Brooke.

Brooke has discovered her feet within the last few days. She is just absolutely in love with them too! She grabs them and holds them in amazement. Changing her diaper is suddenly a bigger task because she likes to try to get to her feet during the process. It so amusing to watch her as she enjoys her latest discovery. It cracks me up how something so simple could be so new and wonderful to Brooke. I LOVE having a baby:-)

In other Brooke news, her reflux is back to being really, really bad again. We go through spurts of really great days, ok days, bad days, and horrible days. Today, in the reflux world, has been absolutely horrific. We came home from my in-law's house with throw up all over Brooke and me. My jeans were covered in throw up as well as Brooke's clothes, carseat, burp cloths, and the back of her neck. The first thing I did was give her a bath. I HATE reflux. I hope my next babies don't get this! The specialist doctor told me to give her a tablespoon of rice cereal after ever feeding because it will help her keep things down, but I feel very strongly about waiting for her to be six months old until I introduce solids. Is a tablespoon a feeding really enough to make a difference? Any thoughts on this?

Well, I'm going to go fold some laundry and get ready for Hell's Kitchen to come on. I am SO excited! It's my favorite show!:-)

I can't wait for Hell's Kitchen!!

Brooke's discovery of her feet has been so cute! She could be entertained by them for hours!

I'm sorry the reflux is bad again. I don't have any advice because I, like you, felt very strongly for waiting until 6 months. Sorry!!

Hang in there...the reflux gets better! I speak with experience.

I would wait at least until she is four months but really Hudson spit up just as much with the cereal. It was just thicker! One tablespoon isn't much if you wanted to try it but I would wait a little while.

Hang in there, it gets better!
