weight: 13 lbs 9oz
height: 24.5 inches
he was 90th percentile in weight and 95th percentile in height. i knew he was big, but this totally confirmed how big he was!! he was fully in 0-3 month clothes at this point.
at the beginning of the second month, he attended his first wedding and snoozed the whole time...
he also got to meet some of his cousins... and he received a matching outfit from my cousin's wife, Melissa to match her son Westin... ADORABLE...
the day we got home from illinois, we went to meet Quinn's new friend Hank at the hospital. our friends Ben and Jess had a new baby boy!
we realized at this point how big Quinn was getting and how much he had changed!
by his second month he also had perfected this face...
we had a great holiday gathering with some friends and it was just so crazy to how our lives have changed in the past year. there were three new babies there!
Can you believe how big he looks by the end of this second month compared to the beginning!?! It's unreal to me!
Also, by this point we had started to cloth diaper at least 70% of the time. I'll do a post on that soon because I'm completely obsessed. He was giving us "social" smiles now too! It definitely took some time to bring them out at first. He would give us maybe one or two a day, but by the time we went to his two month appointment, he would smile pretty frequently! He also was awake and alert more. He still would go to sleep between an hour or two after each feeding and (hopefully) sleep around and hour or two. So this ends up giving him three naps a day. He also went on Zantac for his reflux over this month. He was spitting up large amount almost every feeding and was starting to be fussing and loosing sleep from it. We tried elevating his mattress, holding him upright for 30 minutes after every feeding (really fun at 3 in the morning) and we just tried not to move him a ton right after feedings, but it didn't seem to help too much. Starting him on on Zantac was something that I was very hesitant to do because I really didn't want to have medicine in his little body. But my doctor was very supportive of him starting it, so I decided to give it a try. It has seemed to help a good amount. He is much more comfortable and although we still do all of the precautions above, he seems to be happier after his feedings and spit up a little less. He still spits up a good amount though, and that's just something we will have to deal with! :) Lots and lots of burp cloths and LOTS of laundry.
By 6 weeks he started sleeping for 5-6 hour stretches. It was glorious!! He continued to be relaxed and chill baby. He didn't really have a preference for any one person and pretty much just went with the flow. Errands were still really easy because he seemed to sleep anywhere! I could be out all day and he wouldn't sleep any different than if we were at home.
We felt so blessed during the beginning of the holiday season. Thanksgiving had a whole new meaning to our whole family. A new life had such an impact on us all. The blessings were overflowing and we loved every minute of our second month with Quinn.
