Sophia went to her first sick doctor visit yesterday! I have to say that I am surprised she managed to keep from getting sick this long. She's been congested for 6 weeks now so the doctor prescribed her antibiotics and she also has a cough. Her pedi thinks that the cough is actually from her reflux so we may have to put her back on Zantac. She also thinks maybe that's why she has been sleeping so poorly for the last 2 months. It is a little ironic that she stops sleeping through the night as soon as I take her off Zantac so maybe her reflux is waking her at night. I really hate having to put my babies on any medication, but we kind of have no choice with this.
On a happier note, she is 14 lbs., 7 oz. and almost sitting up by herself! We started solids just a few weeks early and she's been doing great on them. We started light with some cereal with fruit mixed in it. She only gets about a 1/4 cup, but I'm looking forward to starting veggies and making my own baby food in the next couple of weeks. I can't believe she will be 6 MONTHS OLD in just 2 weeks!
