ONE Month Already!
It is so very hard to believe that you are already one month old. This morning I was thinking about all the days I was counting down until you made your arrival and now I am counting how old you are! Your first month has been amazing...I wouldn't trade it for anything...but please just slow down a little bit, ok?
At your three week appointment your Doctor was impressed because you were finally putting on more weight! You were 21 inches long and 8 pounds 4 ounces....one ounce away from your birth weight! Your Daddy and I weighed you at home today and you weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces...getting so big!!
You are the best sleeper ever..I know that will soon change as you start to become more alert, but I am loving it now. You typically sleep for 3 hours at a time during the day and as of last night, you are sleeping up to 6 hours!! YAY! It is like clock work and when it has been 4 hours since you ate, you are ready for more. You eat 3.5 ounces every 4 hours (6 hours at night). I try to get you enough breastmilk (I gave up on breastfeeding..I just pump for you so I know how much you are eating) but I have to supplement a little each feeding with Enfamil Infant. It takes you no time to eat..you love feeding time. However, when it comes to burping it takes you a minute. That's the stubborn Wesley coming out haha!
I could literally watch you all day...and I do. You make the best facial expressions and sounds. Your sounds keeps your Daddy awake at night..but I love them...so sweet! One of your favorite things to do is stretch!! Every time I lay you on the changing table you stretch for a few minutes (No exaggeration) and I just wait to change your diaper until you finish. You are a little spastic when someone messes with you or either you are startled by something loud...here is Daddy messing with you.
Your favorite thing right now is still your Nap Nanny..its my favorite too. You sleep so great in there. We try your bassinet or swing every once in a while but that doesn't last long at all. So your long naps and night time sleep all take place in the Nap Nanny! You also love your paci. You have to have something in your mouth at all time...if not your paci, then your fingers, hand, clothes..something!
We try out Tummy Time daily but sometimes it isn't your favorite activity. You do really well and your little neck is getting so strong! You are still wearing newborn clothes and a couple 0-3 months size. You moved up to a size 1 diaper last week (very sad for me haha)
You have been so much fun and your Daddy and I have loved every second we have had with you. We love you so much and so excited to watch your grow and develop every day!
