After Brit left, Sarah Garrison came up for the weekend. Matt watched Noah all day on Saturday so that Sarah and I could scrapbook. It was a good break for me, but I did miss the little guy. As always, Sarah and I had a great time together, and then we ended our day with some fabulous sushi from Wasabi. On Sunday, Sarah showed me how to make beef stew out of my leftover roast, and it was delicious! I think the cabbage in it caused some serious gas in Noah, so I think I'll have to leave that out next time. Oh man, it was good though.

The doc diagnosed Noah with acid reflux this week. He prescribed some meds for him, and I've been advised to keep him upright for 20-30 minutes after he eats. This is hardest in the middle of the night, but it definitely seems to help him not spit up so much. Nights seems to be the most difficult for him. I hate it that it hurts him to eat. It's like around 7pm he gets hungry, I begin to feed him, and then he pulls off because of the reflux. I then soothe him, he begins to root again, so I put him back on, and the same thing happens all over. I know he's hungry, but it's as if it hurts him to eat. I know that this reflux is common, so does anyone have any advice?
This weekend Sarah is coming, and Noah can't wait to meet her! His future BFF waits and grows patiently in her belly.

It seems that Noah's schedule has once again changed. His eating schedule has spread out a bit, which is fantastic, as every hour and a half was pretty tiring, but now I need to pump pump pump...my first experience with a little engorgement! I think we are going to buy a new pump, and I've been told that I can get a Medela for a great price at Worldwide Surgeon??? Is that right? I need to ask the person who gave me the tip. I'm not sure I have the name right. Does anyone have any other suggestions for getting a pump at a good price?
We have a busy month ahead of us. Lots of visitors coming to the Lou, and we are so thrilled that Noah will get to hang out with our loved ones!
