So, we had two and a half weeks of perfect bliss with a baby, and then Fiona started getting fussier. And fussier. AND FUSSIER!

She has colic. A textbook case that began shortly after her two week birthday (apparently, babies don't have developed enough systems until they're two weeks old to have colic). Colic is essentially reflux; even if the baby doesn't spit up a lot (which Fiona doesn't), heartburn is essentially the issue. She had been doing the classic arching her back and pushing out her hands and trying to get away like she was in pain; that was especially horrible to endure while nursing her. She was hungry but also clearly in pain. :(

The doctor prescribed some Prevacid and said that in a couple days, it should completely clear up. I also have to cut ALL DAIRY OMG out of my diet.

She weighed 8 lbs 1 oz; she's too big for newborn clothes now although not for newborn diapers.

In non-textbook news, two days ago fiona rolled over from her back to her belly. I knew she was a genius.

In Emma news, she called us yesterday crying (while Fiona was in the middle of an enraged one and a half hour crying jag) wanting to come home from her grandparents' house, so Josh's mom is bringing her today. :( I knew the trip was too long for her to be away; I should have done a better job of planning her summer out. *sigh*

Cross your fingers for us. If this medicine doesn't work, we may all lose our minds.
