One Month Old!!

I can't believe we have hot this milestone already!!!

The past month has completely flown by and I am not ready to say my sweet baby boy is already one month old!

Chris and I have jumped head first into parenthood and have loved every minute of it.  We have gotten to the point where we both feel like we never understood how much our parents loved us until we experienced that kind of love ourselves.  I sit every night and stare at my sweet boy sleeping in my arms and cannot imagine life without him.

Weight: 10 lbs 10 oz

Height: 22 1/4 inches long

Clothing Size: Mostly 0-3 months but some of those are already becoming too small.  :(  So we have begun integrating 3-6 months.

Diaper Size: 1

Feeding: He is taking 4-5 oz every 3-4 hours sometimes we have a 5 hour span! He is on formula (Enfamil Infant), we tried breast feeding, but my milk production just about stopped at 2 weeks.

Sleep:  He usually goes to sleep after his feeding at 9 or 10pm then sleeps until about 1am.  After that we are usually all sleeping until about 530 or 6am.  He prefers to sleep on his right side or his belly.  He also LOVES to snuggle.  He slept for the majority of the night in his crib last night.

Milestones: Alex is VERY alert! He is getting much better at holding his head up while he is getting burped.  He absolutely hates tummy time (on a mat) so we have resulted to having tummy time on one of our chests.He is beginning to track items and more frequently turn towards sounds. 

Loves: Baths or showers, music, lights, cuddling with Mommy or Daddy, car rides and walks in the stroller.

Dislikes: Tummy time, gas bubbles and constipation.

Adventures:  We have been a lot of places since he was born.  He has had 2 doctors visits, been to both Grandparents homes, the grocery a few times and to the shopping mall today. He was baptized on 8/5/12.

Mommy and Daddy could not get through the month without:  Formula, Mylacon drops, AC (he is a hot box), and his swing.
