One Month!

Weight: 9.6 lbs.
Height: 22 1/2 in.
Head: 14.5 in.
New Skills:
- You're really strong and very good at holding your head up!
- You rock at Tummy time because of being so strong! You can already move your head side to side.
- You can definitely identify who your Momma is...I think you can smell the constant stream of spit up you leave on me...primarily in my hair thanks to your awesome projectile spits.

We made it one whole month! Either we completely forgot what the first month was like or this little nugget is going to give us a run for our money! Grady requires constant feedings - like cluster feeds, but all day long. He's not happy sitting by himself or kicking it with Cooper on the playmat, but would prefer to be held or fed all day long...hard to accomplish with a toddler who also wants your undivided attention! We are beyond exhausted and trying with all our might to remember that this stage will pass. 

We did learn at his recent check-up that he may be battling GERD - a Gastro reflux disease. The poor baby is just so not happy and can't lay down without hurting. After reading the symptoms (he has them all) and talking with our doctor, they have prescribed him zantac twice a day to help sooth his tummy. Praying this works and we can get a few smiles and NO probing his throat/stomach/intestine!

Honestly, it was a relief to be told I wasn't acting like an overly paranoid parent and that our child does seem to have some kind of reflux problem.

Hopefully his 2 month check-up will be G-R-E-A-T!
