Our little man is 1 month old today! I cannot believe how time has flown already. This little peanut has brought so much happiness and love into our lives in such a short amount of time. We have lucked out with such an easy baby. He has started to get a little bit more cranky in the evenings now, but it’s nothing too serious. At his 3 week check up, he was back up to his exact birth weight of 6 pounds 15.5 ounces and he had grown an inch to 20.7 inches. Although breastfeeding is extremely challenging at times, he is eating so well that it keeps me going. If he was having latching problems… Who knows. He’s eating every 3 hours and we try to make it 4 in the night, sometimes he wakes us up a little earlier than that. I’m so ready to be able to get him on a schedule. Right now, we are pretty much on a midnight, 3, 6, 9, noon, etc. routine, but it gets off course every now and then.
Here is one of our newborn pictures. They were all absolutely amazing! I can’t believe we got one with his eyes open, he was so sleepy those first two weeks. He has mommy’s big blue eyes!
