Haley update...

Everyone is always asking how Haley is doing, so here's a little update. She was weighed last Friday and was 10 lbs. 5 oz. Definately not as much as we have hoped. In one month, she gained 4 oz. So, she is going back on some medication. I don't think it helped, but we are trying everything. Haley vomits constantly. I am not exaggerating. I think that is a big reason she's not gaining weight, she can't possibly keep food down, but her GI tests told us she doesn't have reflux, but they gave her medication for it just because they didn't know what else to do. It's not suppossed to stop the puking, just make it so it's not painful. I don't think it's ever been painful for her, and I don't think it helps, but I am at my wits end, and have to try everything before we can get referred to a specialist. The medication for this is prevacid. The other medication they're putting her on is called Reglan. It's suppossed to make her food digest faster. Hoping it will digest before she can throw it up. Like I said, I don't think these things made a difference in the past, but we'll see. I am really starting to worry about her. She will be 5 months next week, and is not even 10 1/2 lbs yet. She is still wearing 0-3 month clothes. They are just starting to fit. Some of them are alittle short, but 3-6 month clothes just drown her. Here she is in her Bumbo watching me make dinner.
I know, I know, you are going to say she looks like Jake. I just found a picture that will prove it...check out the eyes! Haley's are nothing compared to what Jake's eyes were. They look like this, cause I said, "Jake, Haley, look at me" and they both turned, this isn't a natural look...
So, that's the update on Haley. She is definately cute though! She's just so tiny, but is still doing things that babies her age are doing, like laughing, and rolling over. We love her!
