Andy’s 2 month appt

Andy’s 2 month appt was on Wednesday (9w4d). He weighs 13 lb 7 oz and is 24 1/4 inches long! No more thinking my milk supply is low- lol. His head circumference is 16 1/2 inches. Brendan’s head measurements were always top of the charts so it quite surprised me when I looked up Brendan’s 2 month stats and Andy’s head is about a cm bigger! Goodness, I make big noggined kids! Brendan was 13 lb 1 oz and 24 inches at 8w2d so they are about neck to neck.
Andy’s reflux issues seem to be holding- neither worse nor better. The dr had me stop the Reglan to see if he is visibly worse off without it and it looks like he won’t need it any more. Now that I have a 3 month supply of it in my closet. Sigh. The Zantac is what makes the stomach fluids less acidic so he’ll be on that awhile yet, I’m sure.
The doctor was impressed with how Andy looked and said he was very strong for his age and had great head control. That made me happy.
He got his 2 month shots and I got sticker shocked. $635 for that simple appt plus 5 vaccinations. I about died.
Brendan didn’t say a word with the doctor the whole appt but he didn’t spend it with his head buried in a chair either. He held the doctor’s flashlight somewhat hesitantly- but he did it. He is progressing socially, but so slooowly. It’s my main worry with him. Brendan weighs 43.2 pounds. I think he has hit a growth spurt recently because some of his pants are actually looser in the waist now. I am trying to keep him at this weight for a bit so he’ll grow into some of his chubbiness.
Andy’s eyes are playing tricks on me… I’ve seen them in different lights and at different times thought they were turning blue, green AND brown so who knows. LOL. He is *very* happy and pleasant now and we are thrilled. He beams at anyone who talks to him in a high voice and loves to be told he is beautiful. 😀 He is starting to make “heh heh” sounds that are very similar to laughing. It’s so cute!!! He is a real joy. It is so much fun to make him grin while nursing. He just can’t contain the smiles and keep drinking- he has to let them out. Hee hee. 😉 Now if he’ll just start sleeping longer at night….
