2 Months Old

Luke is 2 months old!!  During his check-up he weighed 14 pounds 5 ounces (86th percentile) and was 24 inches long (81th percentile).  He has gotten so big that Madeline has trouble holding him.  Emily can still hold him but not for very long.  Luke is smiling more and more every day, mornings are his best time.  When he is in a good mood he will smile and coo, it is the sweetest sound and I enjoy every minute of it.  He does NOT like his car seat.  As long as the car is moving he is happy, but as soon as the car stops moving for more than a minute he will start to cry.  When he was 6 weeks old he was spitting up all of the time and would get so upset after he ate.  At his 6 week check-up the doctor gave us a prescription for Zantac to help with his reflux, it has worked really well and Luke is a much happier baby.  Luke will still get an upset belly and spit-up, but is not as fussy.  Luke enjoys being held and most of the time will only sleep if he is being held.  At night time he will sleep in his crib for the first 3 hours then he wakes up to eat and Paul or I will fall asleep with him on the sofa or recliner just to get him back to sleep.  Luke is still trying to sort out night and day, but I think it will not be too much longer (I hope).
