Dru is a busy girl!! She keeps us chasing her, repeating ourselves and singing songs over and over :) Her favorite is Itsy Bitsy Spider. She makes us laugh a lot and has great facial expressions. Her vocabulary is growing quickly and can get her point across most of the time. She continues to go to daycare 2 days a week to get social time with her peers. She enjoys her brother and is a great helper. She has improved her aim at putting his pacifier in his mouth :)

Leo is growing like a weed and is such a sweetheart. He is still struggling with reflux and we expect he will for awhile. His tear ducts remain closed unfortunately. I have taken him to my chiropractor to see if they can work any magic for the reflux, sleeping and a stiff shoulder/neck. So far the sleeping is better, the reflux is worse and I'm not quite sure about the shoulder.
I only have 2 weeks left of maternity leave! I can't believe it. I don't feel I've been able to enjoy him as much as I did Dru. Most likely I think it's because we've been so busy getting our house ready to sell. We hope to have it on the market by the end of the month...wish us luck!
Julie starts her maternity leave next Monday, so we'll have a week together. Her work is going through a major transition so she's a bit concerned about being gone during such an important time.
We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

Leo is officially 2 months old! It has gone by so fast! He had his 2 month check up and shots yesterday. I didn't cry and he was very brave. He only cried for about 5 seconds. He is 11 lbs 11 oz. and 23 inches long. That puts him in the 50th percentile for height and weight. The doc told me that 50% is good for a baby with reflux since they typically don't thrive as well.
He is not quite sleeping through the night, though the last 2 nights he has extended his sleeping time by a few hours! YAY! We are starting to add rice cereal in his bottle as of today as suggested by the pediatrician. It should help Leo even more with his reflux. We also changed his formula to soy which is also helping and will continue his medicine.
He likes to "talk" and I enjoy the interactive time with him!
