Row, we can’t believe how fast you are growing! Our little peanut has doubled his birth weight and consistently putting on the pounds. He has outgrown all of his newborn clothes and is in 3month outfits already!
Unfortunately, his tummy has gone from bad to worse. Poor little man has officially developed “premie” tummy with reflux and protein sensitivity. We were put on nutrimagin formula (same stuff B was on for a year) and zantac to keep the acid at a minimum. I hated all those months that B was on those, so after some research we have switched Row to an organic lactose formula. So far, the reflux has severely decreased… so fingers crossed it was the right choice!
Brennan’s love for Row has grown leaps and bounds. He is always gently loving on him, kissing him and laughing at him. He think “bebe row” is hilarious and vice versa. Brennan had his first smile from Row before I did! Brennan however does not want the grandparents to hold Rowan. He lets them know “mama’s baby! mama hold baby!” so they can give their attention to him 🙂
We have nicknamed Row, Mr. Serious as he always looks like he’s in deep thought. To get a smile out of him, you have to work really hard at it. And I’m still not convinced that is isn’t a gassy smile either 🙂 He is definitely going to be our serious, thoughtful, thinker. I love seeing how different the boys personalities are already.
Row, you are such a joy in our lives. I can’t imagine life without you already.
