Luke at Two Months!

Luke turned two months on Feb. 3.  He had his two month appointment this past Friday and he weighed 15 lbs 9 oz and was 24 1/2 inches tall.  He is still in the 98th percentile.
We call him "Chunky Monkey", or "Chubby Checker."

He wears a size 2 diaper and size 3 to 6 month, or 6 month size clothes.  He loves to eat.  Still does not take a pacifier and has gotten fussy with the few bottles he was given this past month.  Brant says he is a pure Mama's boy!  He does have periods of fussiness, usually in the evening.
He has been smiling more and laughs.  He will stare at his hand and has started laughing and looking at the animals on his swing mobile.  He holds his head up really well and bears weight on his legs very well too!
For the past two weeks he has been sleeping pretty well at night and awake more during the day.  He has been sleeping until about 5 am, up to eat and then back to sleep for a few more hours.
I did stop the acid reflux medication because I don't know that it was doing enough to warrant continuing it.  Both he and Hank had sick visits for colds the week before last.  Mostly nasal congestion, that will not go away!  We have been having Luke  sleep in his swing for the past week to help with his congestion.  He is still sleeping in our room. 

Hank still loves him.  He calls him Luke Thomas, or Baby Brother.  When he has been away he will come and see him first and say, "My missed you today Baby Brother."
