Ok, so maybe we spoke too soon...
So once again, it's back to the drawing board for the formula. We are now moving on to Nutramigen AA which is supposed to be completly free of any and all milk and/or soy proteins. We have noticed that when switching to different formulas, Mitchell will do great for about a week or so and then an allergic reaction starts to form again and of course, with each formula he's reacted in different ways. We are hoping this is our final switch, because we honestly don't know where to go from here. So, we'll have to keep you posted on how this formula works, although we'll be hesitant now to say for at least two weeks how he is truly responding to this. We tell ourselves many times that we are lucky that he is very healthy other than these allergies, but it is still hard to see our baby boy hurting so much. Please say a little prayer for Mitchell and his new formula!
This was Mitchell's first visit with his new friends! Will Zuber and Evylee & Kenzlee Terry are going to be Mitchell's buddies...when he's old enough to sit up and play!
The Bumbo Seat!
We have discovered that Mitchell loves sitting up and seeing the world from a "big boy" point of view. His new Bumbo seat has quickly become one of his favorite things to do. He loves watching and listening to us talk to him while he's sitting up just like us!
Brad and I have been married a little over eight years. He works for TVA and I am a teacher. We have recently had a baby boy who we named Mitchell. Right now we are excited about where our lives are headed and we are working to be the best parents we can be. God has truly blessed us with everything that we have!
