My Two-Month Checkup

Story told by Henry

I had my two-month checkup with Dr. Mike today! I was quite content during my visit.


Mommy took a lot of pictures. Oh my.


Here are my stats:

Height: 23.5 inches (75th percentile)

Weight: 15 pounds, 5 ounces (greater than 95th percentile)

Head Circumference: 16.5 inches (90th percentile)


I’ve been on medicine now for a week for reflux. For the last month, I cried all day long, all of the time, so Mommy and Daddy were desperately trying to figure out what was going on. This may be the answer! I’ve had happier moments this past week and I’m spitting up less. Dr. Mike says those are good signs! As the medicine heals the damage done to my esophagus from the reflux, I should continue to improve over the next week or two. Mommy could cry tears of relief!


I also have a small rash on my skin and in some of my creases (i.e. where my arm bends). Dr. Mike says it looks like I have sensitive skin just like my sister.


Here’s to hoping that my next two months are a little easier than my first two months! My parents almost sent me back, but my devilish good looks kept me around. Thank goodness!
