“…one of the cutest things you do is sneeze. Whenever you sneeze, your arms flail back and forth and it is the cutest thing in the whole world. I really must catch it on video because if I ever forget how funny it is I would be so sad…”
- from mama’s letter to you
What you weigh – about 6 pounds 2 ounces
What you’re eating– about 60 ml every three hours
How you’re sleeping– overall you’re a good sleeper, but the discomfort you’ve been having is making it a little harder for you. You love to sleep on mama and daddy though.
What you’re wearing – confession – most days you can be found hanging out in just your diaper. I dress you up if we’re having company, but otherwise I love to snuggle you skin to skin too much to put clothes on you during the day. When I do dress you, you are fitting just perfectly into the up to 7 lbs. size at Gap. Preemie stuff is getting to be too short for you. You are fitting just perfectly into the newborn Bum Genius cloth diaper.
What you like to do – make fish face, sleep on mama’s chest, sleep in the Moby wrap, eat, stretch
Big moments in your first month of life – being born (ha!), eating all your meals by mouth, graduating from the NICU, coming home, meeting your big sister, Olive, your first visit to Dr. Stanford and a good report, your first (for fun) outing to downtown OKC, first meetings with lots of family and friends
Nicknames – mama calls you “buddy boy.” daddy calls you “fish” or “budrow.” Not sure where some of those came from, but we’ll try to contain ourselves:)
