-Travis smiled for the first time (non-gas related) on the morning of December 20th while I was talking to him! He smiled at my dad on Christmas Eve, which I'm pretty sure made my dad's life.
-I went dairy and soy free at the recommendation of their pediatrician due to Reid's really bad gas and uncomfortableness. No exercises, gas drops, etc seemed to help, so this was the next step. He is on Enfamil Nutrimigen (dairy free) formula while the dairy completely leaves my "system," which can take approximately 3 weeks. I chose to put him on formula during this time so that my milk would not cause him any further pain in the process. It has made such a difference! He still gets a fussy, like a normal baby would, but doesn't scream like he's in pain and he has had significantly less gas.
-Reid smiled for the first time on Christmas evening despite being really fussy that day! Aunt Kara was the person who was holding him and got him to smile!
-Wearing size 1 diapers
-Somewhat in between sizes in pajamas (because that's pretty much all they wear at this point). Mostly wearing 0-3 months, but some NB still fit, depending on the brand.
-Still wake up every 3-4 hours at night. Momma is still tired.
-Although sleepy, morning is my favorite time of day with them! They are both so alert, smiley, and chatty when they wake up and it melts my heart.
