2 Months!

CT is growing so quickly. We are trying to soak up every second we have with him. As much as I love seeing him grow, I get a little sad every time I retire one of his cute little outfits. He's smiling and interacting more and more each day and he's becoming a very happy baby. The Zan.tac and rice cereal concoction seem to be helping. He has only vomited once in the past two weeks (which was my fault for not burping him better.) He's not hiccuping as much either.

His two month check up went very well. He weighed in at 11 lbs 11.5 oz and measured 22 inches long. His nurse practitioner raised a few minor concerns. His skin has been rough for a while and she said it is eczema and instructed us to lather him in lotion a couple times a day. I've already seen an improvement. CT seems to enjoy the little massage sessions too. Another issue she brought up is that he has a mild case of torticollis. We were concerned about this when he was a few weeks old, so neither of us were surprised by her diagnosis. She suggested more tummy time and showed us how to stretch his neck. We're going to work vigorously on this to avoid any serious treatment.

As new parents, Christos and I were very anxious about CT's first round of vaccinations. We are proud to report that he did very well. The nurse was quick and CT didn't flinch or cry. He wasn't ill or irritable that evening and he even slept 12 hours that night and almost the entire next day. We are very relieved it went so smoothly.

"I can pull it myself, Mama." - I was making dinner and realized the music kept playing on his bouncing seat. This is what I saw when I looked over.

  1. Wow! He is beautiful!

    I am dreading the 1 month checkup where baby gets a hep shot. She cried during her PKU testing last visit and my heart was aching. I am proud of CT for handling his so well.
