Mason,
You are a much happier baby this month. The medicine you take for your reflux seems to really be helping. You still spit up a lot, however you don't seem to be in pain as much any more. You and your sister are taking 5 ounces of a breastmilk/formula mixture every four hours. Your last bottle for the day is at 11:00 at night. After that we don't wake you up again to eat until 5:00 am. Some days you are ok with this and let us sleep and other days you are up at 3:30 for a party! My favorite thing about you is that you love to cuddle. You want to be held all the time, especially being held by mommy. I think you are going to be a little momma's boy. This makes me smile! And you love to lay your little head on my shoulder and snuggle close. Your daddy likes to call you his best buddy. Actually the exact name he call you is his  Buds Buddy. ha! We still haven't been able to get you to smile yet. You are so close though! Your eyes light up and and you open your mouth wide. I can't wait to see a big smile on your face! I love you so so so much my little man.
Love you to the moon,
                                                           Your Mommy



                     Madeline,
My little girl. My Maddie Moo, my Moo Moo, my Mimi. Poor thing you are never going to learn your real name because I call you Moo and Mimi so much for some reason! You and your brother are both wearing size 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. You are still a pretty laid back baby, but if you are hungry...look out! You will cry and cry until you get that bottle! You love to watch the tv. We turn on a classical baby show and you are content to sit and watch it! You do not care for tummy time and usually lay your head down and suck on your hand instead. You have learned to smile this month! It is so cute to see you smile, but I have a hard time getting you to do it. You are evidently a daddy's girl though because he can get you to smile more easily than I can! I'm a little jealous about this! I love you so much my sweet girl. More than I can ever tell you! 
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy
