Survival

Standard

C is now one month old. We survived a whole month of parenthood. It doesn’t hurt that we only had to survive three weeks on our own, then help came to the rescue (thank goodness for parents). We’ll have help here for the next two weeks as well, then we’re on our own again.

C1 had a slow go at getting back up to his birth weight in a timely manner, but he is defiantly growing now.

-At one month C1 is 10 lb. 2 oz and 21 inches long. Other than a few boogers, he’s a healthy happy boy.

-At one month he has out grown the newborn size diapers and clothes and is now into 0-3 month size clothes.

-He seems to enjoy his tummy time and is either indifferent or doesn’t quite like his swing.

-Everybody’s first reaction to seeing C1 is that he looks just like Daddy. Although he must have gotten his Mother’s insides; he’s been slightly gassy (I blame my Dad, who blames his Dad for the gassyness).

-We’re still figuring out how to bathe him quickly so he doesn’t get cold; he’s usually fairly calm during bath time. And by ‘fairly calm’ I mean doesn’t fuss too much, but he does fuss because he’s cold or something.

-C1 sleeps 3, sometimes 4 hours at a time, which is great for Mommy and Daddy. He’s a pretty good sleeper we’d say.

Quite honestly, if all our kids turn out as good as C1, I’m ready to go again right now, but Daddy says we have to wait.


*I love this picture because it really shows how things have changed around here. Daddy took this picture while holding C1, and you can see Daisy in the background slightly out of focus. Not forgotten, just not as important as C1. We love you Daisy.

**more posts to come about some of C1’s firsts.

  1. He's a little cutie!! Glad he's such a good baby for you. But David is right, just wait. 🙂 Shortly after I had Carter someone said to me "oh, I love this age because you can get so much done!" At the time I wanted to laugh at her because I didn't feel like I could get ANYthing done! But, it is true. Once they get older and are no longer sleeping all day, it does get more challenging! But, other things get easier at the same time, so it all balances out.
