Tatum is now 2 months old!!

We just took Tatum to her two month appointment. She is now 11lb, 2.5 oz which is in the 60th percentile. Her height at 22 and 3/4 in was at the 80th percentile. She had to get several shots which was no fun for all of us but we know the vaccinations are necessary. He also gave her a prevacid prescription for the reflux. Based on her symptoms and fussiness Dr. Joki believes Tatum has reflux AND infant colic. Poor girl has been really fussy in the last 4 weeks or so, screaming with a red face and real tears. However since starting on the prevacid three days ago we have seen a remarkable improvement although she has been fussy this morning. She still has poor sleeping habits, waking up easily from naps and not sleeping well at night yet.
The good news is that she is developing well and from his evaluation is doing great other then the colic and reflux. When she is not hurting she smiles all the time in response to other people smiling at her. She is very active, always moving arms and legs and looking around the room constantly. Tatum loves listening and watching her big brother Talyn play. Todd and Talyn told me she actually laughed out loud at them yesterday morning while I was taking my nap, I am sad I missed it. For those of you wondering I still have not sent out the baby announcement, I hope to have them out in the next week or so.
