2 months old!

Harris turned 2 months old on October 7. That went fast and he is really growing! At his 2 month check-up he was 10lbs 7.5 oz (21st precentile) and 22 1/8 inches (19th percentile) long. Of course, his head was in the 44th percentile. Little Bobblehead! Connor was only about 8 pounds at 2 months old so we think of Harris as our little chunker!

He hasn't had a blood transfusion since his second one on 9/1. His hemoglobin level has gone down slightly (lowest 7.8 since last transfusion) but has mainly held steady and gone up slightly. He still goes for bloodwork 2x a week but if the levels continue to climb, the frequency of blood work will decrease which will be great! Right now our plan is pretty simple - Harris and I get up & he eats. Then we bundle up and head to the hospital for bloodwork while Mike and Connor sleep/eat oats/get ready for the day. Since we are regulars in the hospital lab, we know a lot of the employees and some even make a special stop in to say hello to Harris. When we get home, Mike leaves for work.

When Mike gets home from work, Harris is usually just waking up from a nap. I think he already knows our family schedule because he wakes up and then won't settle down until Mike holds him. He is happy as can be getting snuggles from his daddy!
