Althea: Three Months

March 23, 2016

She: Took her first trip to the Zoo! And we got a membership, so it certainly won’t be her last :) Rolled over for the first time! I laid her down for tummy time, and she immediately flipped over to her back. I’m not sure if it was a fluke, since it hasn’t happened again, but […]

She: Is so much less screamy!! The pediatrician thought she might have reflux, so they gave us a prescription for Zantac, and it has completely changed our lives!
