One Month

I can’t believe Aedan is already a month old!

Aedan, here is what you have been up to:

  • You are weighing in at 10lbs and 9oz, which means you have packed on a little over 3lbs since we brought you home from the hospital! We had your 1 month check up today and the Dr. said you are doing great!
  • You wear size 1 in diapers and 0-3 month clothes fit you well (although pants and sleepers are still pretty long on you).
  • You LOVE to be held (in fact you usually hate it when we put you in your bouncer or swing)
  • You love to fall asleep on your daddy’s chest.
  • You like to lay on your tummy, especially on your play mat
  • You take most of your naps in your crib, and I think we are going to move you there for the nights very soon. You have a little bit of reflux so you prefer to sleep propped up.
  • You’re on a pretty good schedule: you wake up between 7 and 8 every morning, you usually take a short nap midmorning, then a long nap around lunch time, and a few short naps in the afternoon/early evening. We have a bedtime routine and you usually go to sleep between 8:30 and 9:30, then you wake up every 3-4 hours at night to eat.
  • You are doing great at nursing and you take a bottle just fine too (which means your daddy gets to help out with night feedings sometimes).
  • When you get upset (during diaper changes and after we get you out of your bath) we can calm you down with your pacifier. The only pacifier you will take is one we have that has a little frog attached. We named it Hurly and we take it everywhere.
  • You have already been to the Greenbelt 3 times and you LOVE to be outside.

We have had so much fun getting to know you and learning about your little personality. We can’t wait to watch you keep growing!
