Today you are one month old and I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by. Today is a nice warm and sunny May day, and this was the last day that we were able to see Grandpa Jim here on earth with us. This morning, I cuddled with you before I had to head to school, and then daddy took over to play with you and sissy! When I got back from school, you and I went to the doctors for your One Month Check up. You are doing awesome! You are weighing in at 10 pounds and 11 ounces. You are 22 ½ inches long and you head circumference is 38 cm. We are still battling your rash on your bottom but Dr Misch suggested some new things that we are definitely going to be trying.
What you look like…
You have beautiful blue eyes, I always catch myself staring at your eyes because they are soo blue ~almost as blue as the ocean. Your hair color is dark brown and you actually had tons of hair. You look a lot like your daddy. You have the cutest dimples ever.
All about you…
You love to cuddle…which is okay because we are family of cuddlers!! I just love how when nothing else seems to make you happy that I can just lay you on my chest and you calm down by the sound of Daddy’s or Mommy’s heart beat. Some days you love to take baths and others you scream your head off. Im sure this will change after your bottom is healed all the way.
Your make the cutest little sounds, especially when you get excited for your bottle!
You wake up about three times a night~ Midnight, 3:00, 5:30. Thankfully, you go back to sleep after your bottle and we cuddle for a bit.
You are sleeping in Mommy and Daddy’s bed still. You really don’t like sleeping in your bassinet. We will lay you down in there sound a sleep and two seconds your wide awake not a happy camper. So we have been letting you sleep in our bed either in the boppy or on mommy’s chest. When you do sleep, you love to sleep with your arms up. Mommy, Daddy, and sissy all do this as well!! ;)
You like to be swaddle but only if your arms are out. You will only take a pacifier when you are not sure if you are still hungry or not.
Makenzie loves you soo much! She cannot wait to play with you. She is very interested in you. When You are crying, she will go find a pacifier or your bottle, and she will try to hand it to Mommy or Daddy to give it to you. She doesn’t like hearing you cry it actually makes her sad when you cry. She tries to hand you her toys but you are too little to play with them. She is trying to say your name, its really cute!!
We Love you LiL Man!!
Mommy, Daddy, and Sissy
