Elijah's 2 months old

Wow another month has flown by! Elijah is doing so well. He is growing and gaining so much weight. He now weighs 10 lbs 9 oz. He is 21.5 in long. He still has GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). He gets medicine twice a day to help reduce the acid in this stomach. All three of our kids had this. It went away by the time the other two were four months old. So we are expecting the same with Elijah. Other than that Elijah is doing really well. I am so happy and grateful to God for how well he is doing.

He handled his shots like a champ. He hardly cried. I was really impressed. He is able to stand holding his own weight with his knees locked (of course we are helping him balance). According to our Pediatrician Elijah is a month advanced in development. Which is so surprising to us given just how early he was born. We cannot believe how strong he is.

He is really starting to smile and coo. We have little conversations back and forth with each other. He loves grabbing his toys on his tummy time mat. It's so hard to get him to let go once he has taken hold of one of the toys. Tummy time is hard to incorporate into our day with two other toddlers running around who could trample him. We try to make it work though.

He is sleeping well. The longest he has given us is close to five hours. Although we did not go to bed when he did so we did not get that amount of sleep. But Paul and I do see the light at the end of the tunnel. Our Pediatrician told us that he should sleep better once he reaches about 12lbs. I cannot wait for that to happen!

Thank you for the update on the Dedication. I look forward to hearing the CD but please take your time with getting them out. I know you are just sitting around the house eating chocolate Bon Bons morning till night (Ha Ha).

Elijah is doing so well! Keep up the good work Mom and Dad and of course Tuffy Too....
