Today you are one moth old. We can hardly believe how fast the time has gone by! You have been an absolute joy and mommy and daddy can't imagine life without you. We have enjoyed a month of firsts with you:
Your first bath
Your first photo shoot
your first visit from Aunt Debi
Your first IV (not a good first...)
Your first party
Your first Valentine's Day
And the one that melted my heart, your first smile
What you've been up to:
-You are wearing 0-3 months clothes and have just about grown out of the newborn size (you're too long!)
-You wear size one diapers
-Your weight this week was 10 pounds 5 ounces
-You make all kinds of silly faces!
-Mommy and Daddy have fun with you too....
-You like to eat, a lot! you are taking 4 ounces every three to four hours, and just last night you started sleeping well and only woke up once! You slept until 8 am and mommy couldn't have been happier.
-You have really started to enjoy your play gym
Mommy lays you down on the mat and you kick and play for a long time...
Until this happens...
-We're working hard on getting you onto a schedule, but some days you're awake for hours and other days you like to sleep all day. When you're awake, you're so happy and when you sleep, you sleep hard!
(your hair looks red in this picture, which will make Grammy happy)
-You slept all the way through your first Super Bowl Party..
-You're very inquisitive and like to look around and take it all in. Mommy thinks that's why you like to fight falling asleep and napping...you're afraid you're gonna miss something!
-You love your pacifier, but just recently have discovered your hands. We'll see which one wins out!
-You love your daddy and mommy enjoys watching the two of you together
..although you often sucker him into letting you stay up instead of napping!
-You love to snuggle, which makes mommy so happy!
-You are very strong and are just about holding your head up on your own. You do a great job pushing up on your arms.
-Your eyes are still blue and your hair is starting to get lighter. We're so curious to find out what color hair you're going to have.
-We love that you're such a happy baby, and we can't believe how fast you're growing. We love you so much and can't wait to see what the next month will bring.
