My sweet boy, I can't believe it's already been a whole month since we've been blessed with you in our lives. Get used to me saying that as I'm sure it will be said at least once a month, if not hundreds.
Your 1 month check up is coming soon but Mommy weighed you yesterday and you are almost 9 pounds, which I laugh at because you're brother was over 10 pounds by now. At birth you were 7 pounds even. You had lost some weight and were down to 6 pds 8 oz but by a week old, you were up to 6pd 12 oz. So, I"m glad you are finally starting to put some weight on and I think I see some chunk developing. You are SO long though. You're newborn clothes are getting harder to snap and some outfits a size up fit really well.
You are starting to be awake more often and more alert. You like to hang out with us in the morning and right after dinner. You no longer scream during bath time either!
This also comes with a price. You no longer want to nap/sleep anywhere else but on/with mommy or in a carrier. Sigh.
You are not a fan of car rides, just like your brother. You scream and scream. Eventually, you'll fall asleep but dare we stop? Oh my!
Sleep is pretty much all over the place but you have a sort of 'rough draft' schedule. We usually wake up between 6-6:30 depending on when your big brother decides to run in and wake us both up. Sometimes, we are lucky enough that he'll go hang out with Daddy and we'll sleep in a bit longer. You'll usually nap on/off till around lunch time, waking just to eat and then I'm usually lucky enough to get you both down for a nap in the afternoon. Bedtime is still up in the air but you usually give me a good 4-5 hour stretch, then usually every 2-3 hours after that. I've noticed after bath nights, you give me a much longer stretch! I love those nights!
It's amazing the relationship I see budding between you and your bother. He loves to talk to you, cuddles you, kiss you. He get's so excited when you wake up he screams, "He's awake! He's awake' which in turn usually wakes you up! He loves you to pieces though, he called you, "lovely'' this morning which made me smile. I can't wait to see this grow!
One month buddy. One month and our lives are already changed. I say this with much truth that you are so loved by so many. I can't wait to see what's to come for you!
