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.

    Oh no…colic. I wish I had some good advice for you. Both Bree and Cullen had colic and it was no fun…I totally sympathize with you. We got to the point where we were putting a few drops of Mylicon in their bottles each time. Who knows if it helped…they still had gas. But, one day, it just goes away. So just hang in there until then.

    Josh is such a cutie! You guys are doing a great job!

    We tried the Mylicon and it didn’t seem to make any difference.

    The best thing we’ve found is called a Happy Tummi. It’s a little canvas sack of rice and relaxing herbs that gets heated up in the microwave. Then we tuck it into a soft pouch and velcro it around his belly. Other than constantly moving him about, the Happy Tummi helps.

    And if I carry him and walk around the house that seems to help a lot.
