Jack -

You are two months old!  We can't believe that two whole months have passed and the amount that you have grown and changed is just amazing.  You are definitely no longer a newborn!

This month was filled with fun fall activities.  We went apple picking, had an apple cider pressing party with family, went to an Octoberfest at a local farm, went on a hayride, enjoyed a Storybook trick or treat and much more.  Fall is so wonderful and it has been so much fun for your brother to "introduce" you to these activities.

You had a tough month as well.  You spent the majority of your days crying and don't sleep very well.  At the end of the month, we finally realized that you have reflux as well as a milk protein intolerance.  Mama is eating very healthy now (no dairy, soy, nuts, eggs) in order to help make you better and Dr. Claire gave you some medicine for the reflux.  Hopefully month 3 will have you being happier!

We saw your first smiles this month and boy do they melt our hearts!  You have also begun the very beginnings of babbling and making noises.  You still LOVE your big brother.  When he is near, you will calm down and he really tries to take care of you.

You have changed so much this month and you are definitely not a newborn anymore.  You have chubby cheeks and thighs, and everything else.  It is so cute!  You have been more alert as well and it is so much fun to interact with you.

You wore 0 - 3 month clothes and Size 1 diapers for a little bit of the month and then for anything one piece we had to switch you to 3-6 month and you definitely needed the size 2 diapers!.  At your two month pediatricians appointment, you weighed 12 pounds 15 ounces and were 24 inches long. You are in the 85th percentile for height and the 79th percentile for weight.

We love you, Peanut, with all of our hearts!
