One Month Old!
Ethan is a month old! I can't believe it actually. It seemed like forever until he finally arrived & now he has been with us for a month? Time flies! What has he been up to lately? He is starting to notice more things around him. He loves the light and will always look towards it. He definitely recognizes mommy & daddy and focuses on our faces when we talk to him. He LOVES to cuddle & be held (sometimes too much!). This past week he decided he wants to eat every 1.5-2 hours instead of 3-4 hours which is making us tired. He also seems to have a bottomless pit. He is now eating 4oz at a time, and sometimes acts as if that isn't enough. He is HUGE compared to when he was born, and has more rolls than I can count :) He is starting to coo and make noises. Sometimes he just sits in his swing or lays in his crib and "talks" for a while. He makes a lot of noise for someone so small! He is about 10lbs 14 oz and 22.5 in long! He is growing like a weed! We don't go to the doctor again until his 2 month check up. His hair is thinning because his head is growing so fast. It is starting to come back in a little in the front, but you can definitely see where it is thinning! He is still not sleeping very well at night. Especially the past few nights! I am trying to do the same routine at nightime, and it did work well the first night I did it. Not so much anymore. I am not looking forward to returning to work on August 1st! My 4am wake up call is going to be rough!
Here are a couple of his newborn pictures (taken at 12 days old) that I forgot to post. Look how small he is compared to the one above that was taken yesterday!
