louden the silence

i'm sorry for the quiet absence over the past little bit ... i've been having problems with my camera uploading photos onto our computer. more importantly however, i've been spending a lot of my time comforting baby jude, who has been dealing with chronic acid reflux. i wanted to thank those of you who gave me such great tips and ideas on instagram. with the combination of giving him a lactose-free formula a few times a day, as well as visiting a chiropractor once a week, his reflux seems to have been settling down a lot, which ... needless to say, makes all three of us a lot happier. i have a few posts planned and with the calming of jude's poor tummy, hopefully this little space will stay a bit more active. thank you all for being patient with me :)

a particular three month jude

at three months old, jude, weighs eleven pounds, is twenty-three inches tall, and has jumped into the tenth percentile! despite all of the super cute soft toys and blankets we've gotten for him, jude loves snuggling with his burp cloths most. he doesn't like sucking a pacifier unless it has a green frog attached to it. he doesn't like car rides unless alt-j is playing. he doesn't like napping unless he has his vibrating elephant touching his back, his burp cloth between his arms, is perched up on his side, and his nap time toy that slowly spins in front of his eyes to look at. he doesn't like drinking from a bottle unless he is lying down. he always loves baths, music, the itsy bitsy spider, looking at lights, and snuggling with mom in bed. at three months, if you were to look up jude in the dictionary it wold say: particular ... but also see cute.
