Ty: 2 Months

Our little Mr. Serious is 2 months old!


And still not in the mood to have his picture taken so that's all I got.  Lots of first for Ty in his second month.  Starting with his first baseball game.


He spent most of the night totally content hanging out in the baby wrap.


He started out the month being pretty fussy and wanting to be held ALL. THE. TIME.


I didn't mind the holding part, but not being able to calm him and not knowing what was wrong was beyond frustrating!  He had his first trip to the park…


And his first trip to the library for story time.


We spent a day at Texas Children's, which unfortunately was not a first for him.  After his throwing up episode during his first month, we thought he had just caught a bug.  But, then he did it again, but worse.  And, this time he wasn't interested in eating all night and wasn't having any wet diapers for an extended period of time so they doctor suggested we take him in again, this time to the ER since it was a Saturday.  Barry was out of town so I am forever indebted to Becky for coming with me and Michael for keeping Sawyer until Barry could get back.  Ty was so lethargic and just not himself.  It was so sad.


We left there with no answers and made an appointment with our pediatrician on Monday.  The only common denominator between the two episodes was that he had 2 oz of formula.  So, the conclusion is a milk protein allergy.  Ty now has a hypoallergenic, hydrolyzed formula - which he wants nothing to do with and I have taken all the diary out of my diet.  About a week later the fussiness decreased drastically.  He became a totally different, happier baby!  And, he would finally sleep on his back.


Taking out dairy has been a challenge for me, but it is soooooo worth it!  He now sleeps anywhere and any way, one of his favorite places is Becky's couch.


At Ty's 2 month appointment he weighed 13 lbs 9 oz (74th %), was 23.5 inches in length (65th %) and his head measured 16 inches (85th %).  He was in size 1 diapers the day he turned 2 months, only because I had a few left - but is now in size 2.  He is wearing 3-6 month clothes.  He's so big!!  Or maybe I just have a skewed view because Sawyer was 7.5 lbs when she was 2 months old.


He is such a sweet baby, but he is so serious!


He is pretty stingy with the smiles, but when we get them…they are amazing!!


He still doesn't love the pacifier, but will take it occasionally.  He has had a few bottles without any trouble as long as it isn't formula.  He doesn't like to be swaddled at all and he is still sleeping in our room at night and wakes up usually twice.  He has been napping in his crib during the day, especially now that he sleeps better on his back.


He also loves to nap in the baby carrier!  Which is great practice for our upcoming trip.


He has super blue eyes and light fuzzy hair - it's my favorite!  Sawyer loves him so much!  Any time he cries she brings him her "Potsy" (or Potsys…we have a backup and somehow she ended up with both!) which is a really big deal because Potsy is so special to her.  She says it makes Ty happy.  I don't know if it makes him happy, but it makes me really happy to see her loving her brother so much!


We all love him so much and are so thankful we have a happy, healthy baby on our hands!
