Well we took Kate to the doctor today and basically she has a bad case of colic or refulx. She put her on Zantac (baby Zantac) and I gave it to her today and it seemed to work! Now...I am not going to get my hopes up as everything seems to work the first day and then the next day we are back to square one...but I do have to say she was awake a lot today with out screaming and she laughed and played with me a lot more than any day since she was born! :) She even sat in her bumbo for 15 minutes!!! So even if tomorrow is a bad day I had one really great day with her and I am thankful for that! Her doctor is so amazing and I just love her! She too said she will grow out of this but sometimes it takes time and some longer than others! I am sure hoping Kate isn't a long one! :) HE HE HE.....
Well she is sleeping and doing great so I can only hope that this will help her a little bit!!! I just hate to see her cry! Thank you Terra and Nicole for your comments...it is so nice to talk to other moms that have experienced this as it is really hard but it is nice to get the encouragement! We all just want what is best for our little angels! :) I do see a pattern...it is the girls that are difficult! Imagine that??? HA HA HA...maybe that means they will be perfect angels when they are teenagers! :) Wishful thinking huh?
Well goodnight...and I will keep you all posted!

Well I don't really have a title for this post because I don't really know what to call it?
I am having such a hard time! Baby Kate has been crying off and on since she was about 3 weeks and now today she is 7 weeks and in the last 4 days it has gotten worse! It is just heart breaking! Today I broke down and just cried with her as I did not know what to do? I have tried every possible thing you can do and it works at first and then the next day no way it no longer works! I just cut out dairy yesterday so I still have a few more days to go to see if that works.
Tonight I called the doctor because I just didn't know what else to do and can't imagine that this is normal and that it is ok that my baby just cries when she is awake..and my goal of the day is to try and do everything I know how to do to make her stop crying. I can't imagine going on like this every day for the next week or two or three...she just seems like something is wrong and I want to be able to fix it! :(
So the doctor said for us to bring her in tomorrow and maybe she has reflux ....that they would examine her and try and figure this out! At this point I don't care what it is i just want to know and hopefully we can fix it and make it better for her! :)
Tonight Kate and I said our prayers and in our prayers we prayed for a better tummy or a cure for whatever is bother her!!!
I love her so much and it just hurts me so bad to see her cry and not be happy!!!
I love you Kate!!!

Well....Can you believe it...Kate is 6 weeks old? Where does the time go? It sure is flying by!
Kate is doing really well! She isn't crying as much anymore! She is still a little gassy but it isn't as bad as it was.
The reason why it has been awhile since we have posted is because mommy got really sick! I was sick for about 5-6 days and then Kate wasn't feeling so great! Yes...she had 100 degree fever one day last week and we took her to the doctor. When we got to Dr. Morgese her temp was 99 degrees and she said she would be ok. However, if her temp got to 101.3 then we would have to bring her back in and she would be hospitalized! I was so scared for her! It was hard seeing her not feel so well! I didn't care how sick I was I just couldn't bear to see her so lethargic! Well...I am feeling better and so is Kate!
Kate has officially outgrown all her newborn clothes! Yes, our baby is now in 3-6 months! I have a feeling she is going to be a tall girl like her mom and dad! :) She can't wear outfits with feet in them as the legs are too short for her so I have to buy her outfits with no feet! I too remember being a kid and my legs were too long for those sleepers! I always wanted to wear them but I was just too tall! :(
So last week we did a little shopping to buy her some new clothes that fit! We had fun and mommy sort of splurged! Oh -well....she is going to look real cute in her new outfits! Her Nana also bought her, her Easter Dress and Bonnet and the cutest Easter Shoes!!! OH...Easter is going to be fun! We also need to find an Easter Bunny to have her picture taken! I almost forgot about that! YIKES!
Well..this week her birth announcements should be done so I can finely get those in the mail! They turned out sooooooo cute!!! I love them!!!! I will take a photo and post them on the blog!!!
Well I hope you all are having a great weekend!!!
Kelly, Nick and Kate~
