In an attempt to keep up with our ever changing and growing little man, I'm going to try to do monthly updates. He has already grown so much, it's hard to believe it has only been one month! I can't wait to see what the next few months hold
According to our scale, our little chunk is 11 lbs and 6 ounces! He's starting to chub up and I LOVE it.
He was 22 inches at our 2 week appointment, but I think he's closer to 23 inches these days.
For the most part we have officially switched into 3 month clothes. While those tiny newborn outfits are cute, they really only lasted about 2 weeks on our healthy boy!
Buster, bubba, buddy, squirmy, big boy, mister
Right now we are sticking to the babywise schedule - 1 to 2 hour naps throughout the day and (ideally) 4 hour stretches of sleep at night. We haven't quite mastered this yet, but he surprised us the other night by randomly sleeping for 6 hours!! It. Was. Awesome.
Breast milk all day, everyday.
Staring at bright lights, hanging out outside, playing with his daddy, swinging and his paci.
Being put down for naps, being swaddled and having to wait on food.
He has really started to master his head movements! He's able to hold his head up for extended periods of time and look around at different things.
His birth! There's nothing like seeing that sweet little face for the first time and knowing that this precious life has been entrusted to you!
Our first hotel stay was a bit of a nightmare. Deacon wailed (I mean, waaaaiiillllllllleeeeddd) the whole first night and the better part of the next day. I felt sorry for us, but I felt even worse for our poor neighbors!
- Deacon is starting to (semi) laugh! He hasn't officially made any laughing noises, but he looks like he's really enjoying himself/laughing when we tickle and play with him
- He recently started to stand up in our laps when we support some of his weight... Basically he's super strong and advanced
