Theodore: 1 Month


Theodore Joseph,

You are one month old today!  We really can't believe it.  Daddy told you happy birthday this morning at 5:30 when he was feeding you =)

You are such a good baby.  So calm and sweet.  You and your sister are a lot alike in that way, but very different in others!

Here are some of your stats for your first month of life:

-Mommy weighed you the other day and you were almost 9 lbs!  You love to eat so I can see how you've grown so much.

-You are now eating between 4.5 to 5 ounces every 4 hours during the day-at 7am, 11am, 3pm and 7pm.  Then you have your late night (dream) feeding between 10:30pm-11pm and then we wait until you wake us up for a middle of the night feeding.  The last several nights it's been between 5:30am and 7am!  You're becoming a good sleeper like your sis.

-Your naps have been good as well.  You have 3 naps: 9am-11am, 1pm-3pm and 5pm-7pm.  Your sister is normally sleeping the same time as you during your 1st and 2nd naps.  This makes mommy happy.

-You're in newborn diapers, but about to move up to size 1.

-Wearing newborn clothes along with some 0-3 months.

-You are VERY gaseous.  Which has made you uncomfortable at times, but you eventually get it out and go right to sleep.  It's getting better, but was pretty hard on you at first.  The doctor said it's nothing to worry about.  Your daddy and pops just say it's because you're a boy.  Crazy boys.

-Your Gigi and Pops are here visiting you!  Pops leaves tonight.  I know you'll be sad to see him go.

-You're lifting up your head really well!  And leaning it from side to side.  So advanced.

-You're not a huge fan of your car seat until your sister stands up next to it and rocks it.  Then you're okay.  And once the car starts moving you're normally alright.

-And you don't really like pacifier's (paci's as mommy calls them).  You might keep it in if we hold it in your mouth long enough, but not typically.  You normally don't need it anyway.

-You are such a good boy.  We all love you so much!
