Tonight, Fireproof premieres in theaters. It stars Kirk Cameron and the lovely Erin Bethea (my college suitemate). By the same group that made Facing the Giants, it's about a struggling marriage between firefighter Caleb and his wife Catherine. They are on the brink of divorce, and he learns how to "rescue her heart" and try to win her back. Go support it on its opening weekend!

She's smiling!

Caroline started smiling at us this past melts my heart! Now I get more than just blank stares when I talk to her. After awhile, though, the pouty lip comes out!

I know it has been awhile since my last post. We've had quite a few experiences, so let me try to catch you up. Three weeks ago, we ended up in the ER at Children's (along with about 7 or 8 handcuffed young teens...still not sure what they were doing there) because Caroline had been throwing up all afternoon and was refusing to eat. There was something concerning on her x-ray, so then we were sent to have an upper GI done a couple of days later. She did great during the procedure; she loved the bottle of barium, and then she slept through the series of x-rays. It turned out that there was no blockage, but we did discover that she has acid reflux. Now she is on medication, and it's like she's a different baby! She is so much more pleasant and content now. We had no clue that she had reflux, because she never did (and still doesn't) spit up hardly at all. Also, she is finally catching up in the weight gain department. She was just back to her birth weight (6lb 13 oz) at 3 1/2 weeks, which was concerning, but she is making up for lost time now that her tummy isn't hurting. She gained 14 oz two weeks ago and 10 oz this past week! The beginnings of fat rolls are forming on her thighs, and her cheeks are getting fuller. :) So even though the whole fiasco was frightening, I am thankful it happened!

Ryle family visits

A month ago, Philip's family came up to visit. It was a fun weekend, with lots of Wii playing, and fishing in our neighborhood lake (who knew there were fish in there?), and of course a lot of eating! Oh, and cuddling the baby. :)

And a lot of football viewing ... It was the weekend of the first Bama game, and Caroline got all dressed up for the occasion. Roll Tide!

We're so glad the Daniel and Natalia could come up from Miami to meet Caroline!
