One Month

Matthew Jr. you are ONE month old!

Where does the time go??? It seems like just yesterday we were bringing home a newborn from the hospital, and overnight you have changed so much!!

What are you up to these days???

You weigh 11 pounds (95th percentile!)...you are becoming such a chunk!

You are about 22 inches long (75th percentile)

Your head is 15.5 inches (95th percentile!)

You are wearing size 1 diapers

You are wearing 0-3 month clothes, but can also fit into almost all of your 3-6 months clothes!!

You are an awesome nurser! You nurse every 3-4 hours during the day

Sleep is getting much better. You wake up every 3-4 hours at night, nurse, and then go right back to sleep...or mommy falls asleep while you are nursing, and who knows how much later I wake up and put you back to bed!

Ever since you came home you have kept yourself on a great pattern of eat, then wake, and then sleep.

When you first came home, you would nurse, stay awake for 15-30 minutes, and then go back to sleep. Now you are stretching your awake time to 1-2 hours!

You hate your carseat and the car....we're working on it though

You are a strong boy! You have held your head up pretty much since birth. You push up and stand with your legs when you are mad!

You love your bouncy seat. We just got a new swing that you really seem to like too!

You have the most beautiful blue/grey eyes, and when you are happy, you love to lay on your activity mat and stare at yourself in the mirror. 

You also love to stare at lights, and track movement with your eyes really well! 

You love, love, LOVE to be swaddled when you sleep or are tired.

You hated your first bath, but now you love them! Mommy gives you a bath every morning (...or afternoon by the time we get moving! ha), and then you lay on the floor and look at the lights while mommy takes her shower

You had your first shower this week and loved to have the water run over your head!

You love your paci...except when you are hungry, because it's just a tease to you!

We're sure you're going to take after your daddy and be a baseball player!

Your daddy calls you "bubbers" or "bubs"

You love to lay on your daddy's chest and fall asleep...so sweet to watch!

Your chin quivers!

You have croocked pinky fingers just like your mommy, Grammy Sandy, and Uncle Adam!

You make alot of noises...

You are tongue tied...we are going to the Dr. next week to have it fixed!

No smiles yet, but you are so expressive with your eyes, nose, & mouth. It seems like you are going to smile any day!

Although you like to cry and fuss, for the most part you are a very happy baby!

We are SO IN LOVE with you Matthew Jay!!!!
