Cute and Chunky Baby Alert

Porter is already two months old.  Time flies by so quickly, but at the same time it is hard to remember life without this little guy.  He adds so much to our family. We all adore him, especially his older brothers.  Porter had his two month check up today.  He weighs 15 lbs 14 oz (99 percentile) and is 24 1/2 inches long (94 percentile) He continues to be a very big baby, just like his older brothers.  I just have big babies, that's all there is to it.  They are so darn cute though.  I am pretty sure Porter has a reflux problem and the dr. seemed to think so to after I talked to him about it, but we decided not to do anything about it right now, anyway.  Tanner had the same thing too (unfortunately).  He spits up a ton and it is projectile sometimes, although he isn't as bad as Tanner was.  He can get fussy around eating time because he's stomach is upset (I assume).  However, he is still a good eater and obviously he is not having a problem gaining weight.  The meds we put Tanner on didn't seem to help him at all so I'm not really in a big rush to put Porter on any meds.  I just wish there was a better solution to the problem.  I get tired of constantly being covered in spit up and I feel bad whenever Porter seems to be in pain.  I am hoping he grows out of it sooner than Tanner did.  Porter reminds me of both of his brothers in different ways, but he is definitely his own person.  It's amazing how easy it is to fall in love with these little spirits.  I am honored to be Porter's mother.
