Two Months

Can you believe tomorrow Baby Owen moves into the double digits? Yes, my sweet little one will be 10 weeks old, which doesn't sound like much but it is to mama. I'm pretty sure just yesterday I was birthing an enormous child. Ahh, memories. :) Since the baby is two months old, I thought I'd write an Owen update. We went for a check-up last week and although he braved the shots like a champ, our pediatrician is still worried about his tummy. We're on a different gentle formula now and adding rice cereal to battle the reflux. I know some worry about the cereal making fat babies, but the kid weighed in at 13 pounds, 5 ounces. I'm pretty sure he was going to be plump, regardless. Fingers crossed, we've been on this combo for a week and I think it might finally be the one!

Despite the colic, the crying, and the reflux, I am head over heels in love with this baby boy. Look at that face!! When he stares up at me with those gorgeous brown eyes and his dimples pop up with a wide grin, I melt. When he kicks his legs, wiggles his arms, and manages to finally make "Goo!" escape his mouth, I fall in love a little more. I love being able to offer the comfort he needs and I'll take those extra snuggles any day. Heck, even when the crying spells are a distant memory, he'll probably still get extras. Just because. :) Happy Wednesday!
