{ 1 Month }

I can't believe little mister is 1 month old (well gosh, 6 weeks as I write this...)  I won't lie, I feel like making it to this point is an accomplishment for all of us!  

Weight: 9 lb 4oz

Length: 23in

Likes: Your boppy is your favorite thing.  You nap on it most of the day, when you get fussy you like to just be left alone on your boppy, and you even slept on it at night in your cradle.  You love when we sing to you.  Dad says that I know way too many silly kid songs.  So, while I sing my high-pitched, baby rendition of head, shoulders, knees and toes, he dances around with you and sings Dave Barnes songs.  You love car rides, walks at the park, and photo shoots with your mom.

Dislikes:  You do not like to be burped.  You never have.  When we first brought you home, you hated having your diaper changed, now you've learned it's not so bad.  We are still trying to figure out bath time, as of now, you aren't a fan.

Milestones: You have been a pretty good sleeper from the beginning.  (And no, I don't believe that just because I said it out loud means that I have jinxed is what it is...he may change, but I don't think he will mysteriously stop sleeping well just because I verbalized it.)  You started out with 2-3 hour stretches and are now up to 4-5 hours.  I'm very thankful for that, as your dad and I both love our sleep.  Let's keep it up!

You are up to eating 4.5 ounces every 3-4've always been pretty regimented.  You put yourself on that schedule, but we didn't fight it.

You hold your head up very well.  You have from birth.  I didn't know it was a big deal, but everyone that holds you comments on how strong you are!  You are a wiggler that is for sure, always kicking, punching and lifting your head.

Firsts: You smiled for the first time when you were about 2 and a half weeks old.  I think it was a fluke, but by 4 weeks you were smiling like a pro.  We love that little smile and I was actually lucky enough to catch the very first one on camera!

You rolled over.  I know, it sounds crazy, but you did.  Not 100% onto your back, but when we lay you down for tummy time, after about 2 minutes you know exactly how to throw your head to the side so that you will roll over to your side, and then eventually wiggle to your back.  Got that one on video, too!

You went to your first wedding. Your grandpa Hay was married in May and you got dressed up in your polo and pretty much stole the show!

Fun Fact: You LOVE staring at yourself.  With the modern marvel that is the iPhone, I can put on a video of you at any point and you will just stare and smile at yourself.  You already know how cute you are!  We will worry about the implications of this later ;)

Love you buddy!
