Grant's Two Month Update

Dear Grant,

You are officially two months old now!  I just can't believe it!  We had your 2 month appointment this week and you were 22 inches and weigh 12 pounds and 1 ounce.  You were our smallest baby at birth and our biggest (and shortest) at 2 months.

This month was a hard month.  We started out the month with a visit to a local lactation expert.  I kept hoping you would make progress with nursing on your own but after 5 weeks we weren't seeing a difference.  After working with her and a local expert in cranio sacrial therapy we've gone from exclusive pumping and bottle feeding to nursing day and night!  I can hardly believe it.  You were still just over nine pounds around 6 weeks so you've gained over 2 pounds in the last month!  Hurray!!  

We just switched you out of newborn clothes this week and you are still in newborn diapers.  So far you've been such a good sleeper.  You sleep a lot.  Day and night.  I'm looking forward to your personality as it starts to emerge.  You like to "talk" at night after you last feeding but before you are put to bed.  You sleep in the Rock N Play beside our bed and have given us a few great stretches in the last week or so.  Generally you eat between 8:30 and 10 and then sleep until 4:30-5:30.  

You took your first road trip this month to visit Kentucky and did a great job in the car.  Everyone loved getting to meet you!  

Grant-man the five of us love you so very much.  We are so thankful you are in our family!  we pray for you everyday that you will grow up to serve Jesus and love others!

Happy happy two months!

Love, Mama
