A special trip for Henry

This last Thursday the pediatrician had scheduled an ultrasound and X-ray for Henry. We noticed that Henry has a butt crack that splits at the top so it kind of Y's at the top. The pediatrician didn't seem too concerned about it but wanted to make sure.
So Henry and I headed down to children's on Thursday. We got to radiology and waited for them to call us back to a room. When we got to the ultrasound room, there were cute little twinkle lights in the ceiling... I know if Henry was old enough he would have loved them.... But this mama sure did appreciate little touches like that.
It was weird that Henry was the one on the table getting covered in that ultrasound gel instead of me, he looked so tiny on the table... But pretty much slept through the whole thing.

The tech took pictures of his spine.... All while Henry was so relaxed he tooted quite a few times.... Some comic relief for this nervous mama.

After the ultrasound they took us to X-ray to take a look at the vertebrae... They do both procedures to accurately count how many vertebrae follow from where the spine stops.
Henry was not too happy during the X-ray. They held his little legs down and I had to hold his arms above his head....such a Strong little guy.... And he wailed, but it was short lived.... I swooped him up and comforted As quick as I could.

They told me I would get called by he best day with results....
By Friday at 4 I still had not heard anything so instead of having a terrible worry filled weekend I called the pediatrician and checked if they had results yet. They didn't but said they would start doing some calling for me. They called me back within 5 minutes to let me know that all was normal! Sigh of relief!!!!
I pretty much knew it would be, but you just never know.

Although it was a medical outing, Henry and I got some good one on one time. And it resulted with positive news.
We continue to be grateful for their health!

2 months old!

Time for another monthly update

How old? 2 months

Our weights: H: 9.13 N: 8.9 G: 8.1
They have all stayed consistent with Henry being the heaviest and Graham being the smallest, and Nolan staying in the middle. Graham is the only one left in newborn clothes but we are close to retiring that collection soon.

Our sleeping patterns? About 3-4 hours before we need to eat again. Nolan is starting to sleep longer stretches at night, but he is going through a growth spurt so he doesn't want to miss a meal. Henry usually wakes first to eat, but lately they are all taking turns of who wakes first.

Our eating schedule? Every 3-4 hours we get fussy and want to eat... But with growth spurts happening it can be every 2.5 hours sometimes. With just me it takes about an hour 15 to feed all three, but with 2-3 people, about 30 minutes. Nolan is our strong eater, Henry can be a bit pokey, and graham will be a good eater when he wants to be.

Our favorite foods? Neo sure 22 calorie formula.

Our likes? Being held, swing and mamaroo, looking out the window, riding in the car, our pacifiers.

Our dislikes? Gassy bellies, shots, being changed every now and again.

Our favorite games/toys? Swings and bouncers. We like movement and being upright.

Our milestones? We are beginning to track with our eyes hold our heads up longer, smiling at people.

Things we do to make Mom and Dad smile? The cute faces we make, noises, cute outfits, and letting us get some sleep :)
