Nine Weeks, One Day!

November 19th, 2008

Hi Everyone! Today is Wednesday, November 19 and Josh is nine weeks and one day old. He had his two month checkup yesterday and the doctor thought he looked great. He was tall for his age at 24.25 inches and a little light at 11 lbs 5 oz. The doctor said he was tall and thin – perfect. We like Dr. Silva.

Josh also got three shots and has his circumcision manually adjusted. He weathered it all with only a few minutes of crying before he was back to normal.

What is normal though? He has the dreaded colic and cries for long stretches when he can’t pass his gas. We do everything we can think of and everything anyone suggests and usually it doesn’t help too much. Crisi has been a super mom in dealing with it while I’m at work. Josh saves a bit of it for me when I get home, but Crisi gets the majority of the sad baby times.

When he isn’t hurting, he is absolutely wonderful. We can see how smart he is and he continually does things well before he’s supposed to. We’re proud.

Here are a bunch of pictures from the last month. I particularly like our Halloween costumes!

We hope you are doing well,
Trav, Cris and Josh.
