Almost 5 Months

Our little guy is almost 5 months old. I am shocked! The time has been zipping by.
Since I haven't given any updates on him lately, here ya have it:

Hair: still not red
Eyes: a beautiful shade of blue
Temperament: Generally very cheerful. He smiles whenever he is smiled at, grins if Tali comes within 5 feet of him, loves to be held, and is just a very sweet guy.
Favorite Things: His sister, getting his clothes changed (he's ticklish), chewing on his hands, being held, going outside.
Reflux: Praise the Lord, there has been improvement!!!!! He is still in pain, but he is spitting up less and he doesn't seem to be in as much pain as often. We still pray for continued healing for him, though, as he is still hurting.
Sleep: Praise the Lord, he is actually sleeping through the night!!!!!! He sleeps from about 8pm until 7:30am. He is much better rested now and I am finally able to carry on a conversation without drifting off to another planet.
Stomach: He's got a really sensitive one. After months of yucky mucusy diapers (sorry for the detail) and his pediatrician believing it's due to some kind of food allergy, I'm on a really restricted diet. (And I mean REALLY restricted.) The prayer is that this will give his tummy time to heal and then I can add back in foods to see what the culprit(s) is. Please pray that he starts having normal poop and that we can determine what he is allergic to.
Teeth: He's getting 2. Tali got hers even earlier than Owen but he seems to be in much more pain than she was. Poor little guy.

We can't thank you enough for all of your prayers for Owen and for us. This has been a rough season but the Lord has given us much grace and we've felt so cared for. Thank you!

Back to the posts on thankfulness tomorrow. :)
