Wyatt @ 2 months

Wyatt, 
 You went to the doctor on Monday for your 2 month checkup. You were 2 months on 6/30/14. Since I did an update at 8 weeks, I'll keep this one short.  

At 2 months, you:

  • Weigh 13# 13.9oz (76%)
  • Measure 25.75" (100%)
  • Have a BMI of only 2nd % (14.65)...you are nice & tall!


  • Take 1/2 tab of Prevacid for your reflux.  It is helping a lot, although I wish it would stop altogether!!
  • Had an ECHO 2 weeks ago, because of sister's special heart.  You got a great report! You have a PFO (patent foramen ovale), which is a small hole between the left & right side of the heart.  However, this is not entirely out of the ordinary at your age.  If you keep growing well & do not have any other problems, we do not have to repeat your ECHO or see cardiology. Praise God!!



Big sis wanted to see brother get his ECHO. She kept telling him that he was OK & it would be "all done" soon. 

  • You have great head control & do not mind tummy time at all.  Although it is not tummy time long anymore, because you roll over to your back! Started that right at 8 weeks.
  • You can roll from back to side. I learned that because one afternoon when you were 8 weeks old, I put you in the pack & play to nap.  I, of course, laid you down on your back like I always do. ~5 minutes later, I came to check to see if you had fallen asleep and you were on your right side, happily sleeping.  I guess you're a side sleeper now! (unless you're swaddled...then it's on your back!)
  • Are a very content baby. Everyone comments on that.  You are easily pleased & show off your smiles and dimples frequently.  
  • You LOVE the fan & smile and "talk" to it often.  We called it "Fred the fan" with Kinsley, because she too, was amused by all fans.  I tried to explain to Kinsley why we refer to the fans in our house as Fred. She thought that was "verrrrry silly."
  • You coo & talk a bunch and mama pretty much melts every time. I just think baby sounds, along with any type of laughter and all heartbeats, are three of the most precious sounds in the world.

Wyatt, 
 My precious boy or "doodlebug" as I have lovingly been referring to you as... You have changed so much in the last 2 months.  Daddy & I agree that you have my chin, but most of the rest of you looks more like him.  You certainly get your height from either Memaw's or Nonie's side of the family [or both]!  Every day we notice something new or different about you & I am trying to freeze those moments in my head so that I'll never forget them. I can't figure out how to pause time, but believe me when I say if I could, I absolutely would.  I can't get enough of your sweet snuggles. Your coos, smiles, and happy attitude let me know that we must be doing something right! Your dimples are going to get you in trouble one day, Mr.  For now, they are just downright adorable, and I am really enjoying them!  We love you wider than the sky!
Love, 
your mama
