Mr. Thad is over 2 months old now. How time flies. He is really smiling at us lately and I finally captured some pictures today. He just happened to be all dressed up with a tie on too!
Poor Thad has been diagnosed with a severe case of "infant reflux". This is a new, NOT FUN, experience for us, as neither of the other two ever had any of this. He had a REALLY hard time for awhile last week. He just cried a lot. It was not your normal newborn, fussy crying, but an "I am in PAIN" cry! It was very sad. Any of you who have ever had bad heartburn know this is miserable. It was SO sad to see him hurting like that. It was also very hard for me because there wasn't ANYTHING that soothed him, except nursing. He wanted to eat ALL the time and I felt like all I did was nurse for a few days. This made it feel better for a short time. Then he just got too full, and the reflux got worse- like a vicious cycle. Anyway, we have him on some medication now that has helped a lot!
Other than that he is a typical two month old....eating and sleeping, with a little smiling and cooing now and then.
