1 month check up

Technically, he's 5 weeks old, but Liam had his 1 month check up yesterday; he was 8 lbs, 10 oz and 21 inches long! So he's 1/2 inch taller than he was when he was born and 2 lbs, 2 oz bigger than he was 3 weeks ago. I can definitely stop worrying about whether or not he's gaining enough weight!

I did have some concerns going into the appointment; to sum up, he's been spitting up mass amounts after nursing (sometimes during, then immediately after, then pretty much randomly until the next feeding). And when I say spitting up, I mean a ton and often fountain-like/somewhat projectile. On top of that, he would be content for a bit, then get super fussy, spit up, and be content again after spitting up. It was heartbreaking to see, he just seemed miserable during those times. The doctor said it was most likely acid reflux and put him on zantac, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that it will bring him some relief. Aside from that, he checked out perfectly and we go back next month for the first round of shots (fun, fun!)

He still sleeps most of the time, but is starting to be a bit more alert during random times of the day. His eyes have changed to be more of a darker blue/slate color, we're really curious to see what color they actually end up being. He checked out his swing for the first time this morning; he seemed to be a bigger fan of the bouncy seat.

Emmy I hope the Zantac does the trick! I think he looks like Jake in the second picture! Do you hear that? I bet you can't remember only having one already!
