Happy 1 Month!

I feel like April was such a long month but at the same time I can't believe it's May already.
There have been a few issues that we've had to deal with that made things a little stressful, especially since it's new to us because Eggy never had these problems.  Poor Bacon has probably been to the doctor/hospital almost once a week.  The biggest thing has been his reflux.  The pediatrician put him on Zantac first, now Prilosec.  It doesn't really seem to be helping because he still spits up all the time, even if we're holding him upright or if it's been an hour after he ate.  Luckily, he's gaining weight and eating well.  His newborn clothes are pretty snug on him and he's in size 1 diapers now too.  At his last well baby visit last Thursday, he weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces and he was about 20 3/4 inches long.  At that visit, the pediatrician also told me that Bacon's got torticollis where his head tilts to the right so now he has to go see an occupational therapist.  Sigh.  He's got such a nice round head too (yay for the c-section).  And Bacon has had to have his heel pricked numerous times because he still looks jaundiced but that seems to be okay.  And his baby acne totally flared up last week and hasn't gone away yet.  He's also got cradle cap.  So I feel really bad for him but I also feel fortunate because they're pretty minor issues.

I want to write a separate post about Eggy's feelings about Bacon but I just haven't had time.  (There's never enough time!)  But I will say that she does love him and has shown very little jealousy.  One morning, Eggy came out of her room and asked where Bacon was (he was sleeping in his crib in his room).  I told her that I took him back to the hospital.  And she was like, "No, but he's going to miss me." And she ran into his room to check.  I told her that we should take him back to the hospital because he cries so much.  And she started crying, saying "I don't want you to take him back.  I miss him!  I love him!"  Awwww!
