Henry: 02 Months

  Dear Henry,

It's been a rough month, buddy.  It seems as if you're going through your "fussy" stage, not to mention we found out you had reflux so you've been in a bit of pain while we got your medicine working.  You fight sleep as often as possible during the day- maybe so you can stay awake and see this new world around you?  You also took your first long trips (to Toledo) and slept in the car the whole way (your Dad and I thank you for that!).  We've moved you to sleeping in your own room, though you still don't like your crib and you've also begun sleeping for long stretches late at night so even though it hasn't been all night yet, I'm very thankful that you're letting me sleep a bit longer these days- I think we both needed it.  But you've also begun smiling constantly and we think you're thisclose to laughing- a sound that we cannot wait to hear!  You started eating cereal a couple times a day and your face leads us to think that you're still not sure what to think about it. You're still a little man, but at least you're finally starting to outgrow your newborn clothes and fit into 0-3 month and size 1 diapers.  So though it's been a rough month for us all, we still stare at you for long periods of time thinking about how lucky we are to have you.  Hopefully these next few weeks will start to pick up and be a bit easier on us all.  We're doing our best to make you happy and to show you how happy you make us.  We love you more than you'll ever know.
