Long weekend!
We had a very nice weekend. It was really full of fun stuff, but also exhausting. Friday night we were celebrating birthdays at Grandma Score's. Then we went to Sherri's for a little get together on Grandpa DeRusha's side of the family. Saturday Cole and I went shopping with Grandma Case and then Matt, Cole, and I went to Great Grandma DeRusha's for another little get together. Sunday was Cole's Baptism and then reception after that. It was great seeing everyone. Cole didn't seem to think so though. He was very fussy all weekend which isn't like him at all. He usually just doesn't fuss unless he is hungry or very tired. I think I know why now. He woke up every half hour last night coughing and fussing. He seems very uncomfortable like he has a cold. I have a cold now too so I'm sure that is why Cole has been so crabby this weekend. He was coming down with something. I had to get him up in the night and put him in his infant seat so he could sleep more upright. He was coughing too much laying down in his crib, so then he finally slept. Poor little guy has his first cold. Hopefully he gets over it fast.

His 2 month checkup
Yesterday, Cole had his two month checkup. It went really well. He's healthy and growing like a weed! He's now 24 1/4 inches long which is in the 95th percentile, he weighs 13 pounds 11 ounces which is in the 90th percentile, and his head is 40 1/2 inches around which is in the 65th percentile. That's a big difference from being in the 25th percentile for weight and 50th percentile for length before! And he's Asian! Aren't Asians supposed to be short?

He also got his first shots yesterday. He cried less than a minute and then he was back to his old smiley self again. He got a fever today (most likely from the shots) so we gave him some Tylenol and he's been much happier since.

Anyway, he's still doing much better on his soy formula, so we're keeping him on that. :-)

Labor day weekend
The rest of the week went better for Cole. He slept through the night again. I started putting him in his crib to sleep at night because I was waking him up in the morning when I got up to get ready. So now he is adjusted and is sleeping in his own room! He does pretty good in there :) and he seems to need his pacifier less.

We decided to switch Cole to soy formula because he has been spitting up a ton the last few weeks. We had to keep a bib on him every moment that he was awake to avoid ruining his clothes. He's been on the new formula all day and is doing much better. He still spits up a little, but soooooooo much less. It is a relief! Cole just keeps getting easier as we figure the little guy out!

We had a really nice long and relaxing weekend. We got the chance to see both the Case and Score grandparents so that was nice. Cole likes the attention :) I'm not really ready to go back to school tomorrow though. It is really hard to be away from Cole all day. It makes the days very long. I don't have much to do while I'm at school either so it makes for a very long and boring day. I'm counting the days til December 15th when I graduate.
