I figured it's been a while since I last updated you on Violet - so here's a little rundown:
She's now on two reflux medicines (omeprazole [7.5ml once a day] and Prevacid [1/2 of a 15mg solutab once a day]). That's the max she can take for her weight. Coincidentally, it is also the max my sanity can handle giving her. Have you ever tried pinning a 20 lb squirming infant down and force-feeding them medicine? It's a LOT HARDER than it sounds. The screaming, the flailing, the volcano-like spewing of said medicine back in my face. It's fairly magical. And I get to do that at least once a day! Don't be jealous! (for real, though...don't.)
The good news is that she seems to be doing a lot better through the night. She only wakes up a few times screaming now - generally between the hours of 3-6 am = huge improvement. She IS up like...at LEAST...15 times a night for her binky, though. As soon as I'm convinced that we've got this reflux thing nailed down we're going to start working on weaning her off that freaking binky! As great as the binky has been for her...it's making me insane now.
ALSO - Shaun and I (and Violet haha) are moving out of the basement!! We've had a whole list of things we needed in a place and we FINALLY found a cute little duplex that meets all of our needs. Two bedrooms, inexpensive, safe, close to work & family...I'm real, REAL excited. The only tough part is figuring out WHEN we're actually going to get around to moving...Shaun works 80+ hours/week and I'm going to be out of town working every weekend in November...so...maybe after the New Year? :)
We're going to miss all of our roommates. Violet will especially miss Seattle...she l-o-v-e-s Seattle. She loves watching her run around, she screams at her (happy screams), she gets excited when Seattle gives her toys. It's pretty cute. Vi will also miss Tucker - he actually let her touch his beard today!!! She FREAKED out with excitement. Typically he'll sit juuuuust out of her reach and watch her struggle to get him haha. When she starts crawling he's in for it.
Other stuff: baby girl still isn't rolling. Not kidding. Haha. She can, but she doesn't. She's nowhere NEAR crawling. She gets so mad when she's on her belly (but she won't roll over onto her back?? little weirdo). She isn't eating solids yet (GI issues) but on occasion she'll get some baby food pears and she gets SUPER excited.
OK I'M GETTING KICKED OFF THE COMPUTER BECAUSE DAD SAYS HE NEEDS TO WORK OR SOMETHING AND I'M ON HIS COMPUTER.

I figured you might need a little of this face in your life today.
In other news, I love crocheting things. Like this little cap Vi is wearing.
Nikki says it makes her look ridiculous. I say it looks ridiculously...CUTE.
Want to know how to make one?? It's easy like woah.
That is all.
