One Month Old!

Happy One Month Birthday to my sweet baby boy! I CANNOT believe how time has already flown- and how much our little man has changed! He has made our lives so much better, so much richer, and filled with so much more love.

Here are some pictures I will start posting monthly. I totally stole this idea from Michelle! She is so smart!

0 Months Old :)

1 Month Old!

Here is our life at one month old:
-Jay eats like a champ! He is eating every two hours during the day (almost to the exact minute- it's amazing!) and for about 35-45 minutes.
-His acid reflux definitely comes and goes. Some days are better than others!
-He is starting to get a little sleep pattern. Typically a night goes like this- nurse then sleep for 2-3 hours (about 3-4 hours between feedings). Nurse then sleep for 1-2 (2-3 hrs between feedings). And then nurse and sleep for 1-2 again. He is usually bright eyed and bushy tailed by 5 am- but I can usually hold him off until about 7!
-He sleeps in his bouncy chair in his bassinet while swaddled with his arms out by his face. PRAISE Jesus he started sleeping without being held all the time!
-He gives us cues when he is ready to be put to sleep. This kid doesn't just FALL asleep- he must be put to sleep a certain way.
-He DEFINITELY notices Mommy's face and voice and smell and follows me with his eyes. This just melts my heart!
-He screams BLOODY murder if we don't get him fed right away- it's actually kind of funny (unless it's 3 am!)

He has been SUCH a joy and blessing- it's amazing that I was a part of creating something so perfect. :)

Mommy and Daddy (and grandparents, aunties/uncles/cousins, family and friends too!) love you Jay!
