Max is 2 months old.

Just wanted to update you on Max's stats now that he is 2 months old. He weighs 9 lbs 15 oz, is 22.5 inches tall and his head is 14.5 inches around. That puts him at 10% for weight, 30% for height and 5% for head. He is a little guy but there is no surprise there. Besides that, he is doing well. He has reflux and is on Zantac twice a day. He is smiling and talking up a storm. He sleeps great during the night but not so well during the day. He is good for 20-45 minutes at a stretch during the day unless being held or in the Moby (mom's lifesaver right now). At night he is going 5-7 hours at a time. He can only stay awake for 30 minutes to an hour at a time so it is hard to tell what kind of baby he is. We are hoping he will start to sleep better during the day so mom (and her aching back) can get a break.

Elliot's school picture

I can't believe how old he looks. Considering this is his first professional picture, I think he did a great job.

A success!

He wouldn't let me take a picture without the camera in front of his face.

First Field Trip

Elliot went on his first field trip and it was a lot of fun. Mom and Elliot rode the bus (Elliot thought this was cool) and dad drove behind the bus. We went to Indian Acres Tree Farm for a hay ride (minus the hay) and pumpkin picking. We learned about many kinds of pumpkins, squash and gourds and even ate some shucked pumpkin seeds. It was a cold day but everyone had fun and it was nice to spend some time with just Elliot since we haven't been able to do that too much since Max was born. We are going to carve the pumpkin and roast some seeds soon.
