Charlie at 2 Months

Charlie's faces at 2 months:

Charlie had his 2-month appointment this week. He's measuring 22 3/4 in length (50%), 12 lbs 8 oz in weight (75%) and 15 5/8 for head circumference (50%). He talks (coos) a lot and is very expressive. He's definitely mellowing out and is less fussy, though his massive spit-ups are becoming more frequent. Zantac wasn't helping, so we're hoping to try the medicine Prevacid next week if our silly insurance will approve the charge (it's very expensive and they are making my doctor fill out a form saying Charlie really needs it - ridiculous!!). His pediatrician thinks Charlie's ongoing congestion is totally related to the reflux (since his body is producing mucous to combat the reflux).

Anyway, Charlie loves his bouncy seat, getting his diaper changed, and looking at people's faces. I love kissing his chubby, chubby cheeks and seeing his dimples when he smiles. Last night we had the best night yet - he slept from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.!! (it's too bad Eli woke up crying at 1:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. - so it wasn't the most restful night, but that's okay) But it was a nice treat that Charlie slept so long - he had some bad nights earlier in the week and I was feeling pretty worn out.

Glad that Charlie is getting better at sleeping - hope he keeps it up! Nathan took Prevacid for a while. I hope your insurance approves it for you, and that it works!

Charlie has the most gorgeous eyes! I can't get over what a cutie he is!

I'm glad the boys aren't double teaming you and take turns. It's nice of them to just wreck your sleep one at a time :)
