happy one month, baby boy

“…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:)
