|Happy 2 month birthday, Jeremiah!|
My preemie son with trouble eating? Doing just great. Growing like a champ.
Length: 23.5 inches
Weight: 12 pounds, 3 ounces (this is 5 pounds over his lowest weight!)
Head: 15.5 inches
Length and weight are around the 60th percentile. Head circumference is 25%
Jeremiah generally eats about every 3 hours, 3 ounces at a time. Occasionally, he'll want to eat after 2 hours, but he's pretty consistent with the 3 hours. He eats exclusively Mommy's milk but usually from his bottles.
He's had a kind of rough month in some ways - stomach aches almost every day, his first cold, etc. But he's doing better now, though I wish we could resolve his stomach problems. (The dr. does not recommend changing anything for his food. I was considering soy formula, etc. He strongly recommends against it.)

Most of the time when Mommy is at work, Grandma and Grandpa have been with you. There were three days though that he stayed with his Aunty Ashley and friend Brayden. He did great. Mommy may have cried though. Oops.

He has lost a lot of his hair on top, so I say that's another way he looks like his daddy.
He also has started rolling from his back to his stomach on occasion, but he doesn't like it once he's there.
Now that he's a little bigger, we plan on starting the cloth diapers (at least during the day) within the next week or so. His size one diapers are getting too small! He's also outgrown the few newborn outfits he had and even some 0-3 month clothes are getting snug.
|What's that doing there? It's my photo shoot!|
He is an absolute joy and we are so blessed to have him in our lives - even at 2 a.m. while he waits for a bottle to warm up. :)
