Truman's Second Month

This week we had Truman's two month check up. He weighed in at 13 lb's and grew 2 inches to a height of 24 in, which put him in the 75th percentile in both categories.

Over this month his reflux has seemed to get a little better. At the beginning of the month he was really struggling between feedings because it was so bad. If we weren't holding/swaddling him he seemed to just want to cry. But we went in to see Dr. Garrett and she prescribed some medication for him (Zantac I believe it was). He did a little better when we gave him two dosages a day, but still wasn't showing significant signs of improvement, so we took him in again, she upped the dosage to three times a day and he has been doing a little better each day since.

After his feedings he is really starting to be fun. He laughs and smiles at's enough to make your heart melt. It makes all the frustrating times worth it.

Here's some pictures of the little guy's growth progress from week to week over the second month.

  1. He's growing so fast. I like how you put the giraffe on the blanket with him so you can tell just how much he's growing. One of the secrets to dealing with mommy days is to blog about it. Good job! Keep updating! He's too cute!

  2. he is so cute. i'm glad to hear things are getting a little better. i love you guys.
