1 Month Old

Baby Boy, you are 1 month old and that month certainly flew by! I don't want to even think about how fast you will grow up! I am loving having a newborn again and am cherishing the time I have with you.

At your three week check-up you weighed 9.15 lbs. so I assume a week later you have made it past 10 lbs.

You are wearing size 1 diapers (although you outgrew newborns almost as soon as you were home from the hospital). And you are in size 0-3 month clothes.

You don't startle nearly as much with your arms flailing about and your daily hiccups are starting to diminish.

Your bowels are starting to regulate a bit better as you had been going what seemed like every hour for awhile there. Although you are quite the gassy baby lately and aren't happy about that! You will cry off and on for an hour or so one or two times a day often waking with painful gas. I am trying my best to eat things that will not bother you but oh, that immature digestive system.

You keep trying to suck your thumb and fist but to no avail, you just aren't coordinated enough yet for that to work out.

Your eyes are beginning to focus more clearly and you don't have that clueless stare anymore.

You will give an occasional smile in response to prodding but we are all waiting for the day when you are all smiles which will be soon I know.

You love to be held close and to be swaddled. Always happiest in someone's arms!

You sleep great at night only waking once to nurse. It had been around 2-3 a.m. but lately it has been moving more to 4-5 a.m. Why is it I am still tired after getting 6 hours of sleep in a row? :)

Your siblings LOVE you and are still arguing about who gets to hold you and are disappointed if the day has passed and they didn't get a chance. It is amazing that I ever get to hold you.

**You are actually 6 weeks today but being that my camera is being repaired (and I am going crazy without it!) I didn't get this posted in time. I did get a picture at one month old from Grandma.
