Fall Fun

We made it through another month as a family of four! I can't believe that it has only been 8 weeks since Luca was born... it seems like 8 months but life with Luca has gotten much better. At his 2 month check up he weighed 11lbs 5 oz and is doing great (in regards to his heath and development). However in regards to his temperament, aside from the irritation of reflux, our doctor said he is just a 'high maintenance' baby! Strangely enough I was kind of comforted by the information.... at least now I know that all his crying is not because he is in pain all the time! But we did switched him to soy formula and he isn't crying as much. He is still not wanted to nap in his crib during the day but will at least take a nap in his swing... praise God! Now we just have to work on him not screaming at the top of his lungs whenever he is in the car!
Bella is going great... having a blast getting to play outside now that it is not 100 degrees! For Halloween, she went trick-or-treating with cousin Luke and Ali. The first few houses she wasn't so sure about it and cried (which has to be alarming to the adults giving out candy... when one of the trick-or-treaters is bawling) but she soon got the hang of it and loved it. We then took the kids to a nearby church carnival and they had a blast!
