Love Overflowing

2 months

on March 15, 2010

It’s hard to believe that it has been two short months since Zachary has entered our lives. He has grown and changed so much in the past 8 weeks. He is such a joy in our lives and I can hardly remember what our lives were like without him.

In the past month he has attended his first birthday party (Daddy’s), experienced his first restaurant (Red Robin), taken his first walk, been to the park and hit some stores. He even went with his big sister to get her hair cut.  A man on the move.

His stats:

10 lbs 10 oz (28%)
23 inches (58%)
Head 39.3 cm (37%)

He took his two month doctor visit in stride. Except for the part when I left him with the nurses so I could take Emily to the bathroom. He ended up with two shots and an oral vaccine. Poor little guy was so mad at me after he got his shots. In my eyes, he looked at me like I had let him down. He got lots of snuggles and love after the mean nurses left.

He’s growing, just not so fast. We are dealing with issues of reflux, which we originally thought was colic. Little man is so young to be on medicine already but he is taking Zantac to help with the reflux as well as some mylanta. We have had to start putting rice cereal in his bottle to help thicken the formula so it stays down. I read somewhere that reflux usually peaks around 4 months so hopefully he’ll turn the corner soon. After every feeding he has to remain in an upright position for at least a half hour. Not a big deal except the late feedings. Then we all get a little tired. I read somewhere that reflux usually peaks around 4 months so hopefully he’ll turn the corner soon.

Despite the reflux, Zachary is a happy little guy. You can tell the medication is helping just by looking at him. He is more social and active. He smiles all the time. He loves playing on his playmat and will “talk” to the animals and to us. Zachary is starting to love baths more and more. He is getting a little better at tummy time when he is able to have it. He will push himself up for a bit before he gets mad and starts to scream. Right now he can’t have tummy time within two hours after feedings so it’s hard to get it in all the time because he wants to sleep by that point. He is a strong little guy with a spunky personality already.

2 months down and loving every minute of it!
