My mind is absolutely BLOWN! Our baby boy is one month old today! I’m almost done with my birth story post, and plan on posting more regularly now that we are starting to get some sleep. Not much sleep, but more than we were in the beginning.
You are one month old and I can’t believe it. This has truly been the fastest month of my life. On one hand, I feel like you just got here, and on the other hand, I feel like I’ve known you forever. You have fit perfectly into our team and our family.
You have had a lot of family visitors this month – all of your grandparents and local family, plus your great-grandparents, great-aunt, and you talked to Aunt Dara and Uncle Dan via skype! Everyone is in love with you.
We had some issues at first getting you back to birth weight and that resulted in a very, very stressed momma. Through it all, though, you have been a wonderful baby. We’re still working on your sleeping habits (you seem to take after your momma and how I was as a baby, and you don’t really like to sleep) but we’re getting there! You have been much more alert during your awake times the last few days and we love seeing you look at us with your big blue eyes.
You are such a blessing to us – an answer to a big prayer – and we are so thankful to have you here.
Your 1 month stats:
- Weight: 8lb, 7oz (13th percentile)
- Height: 21.5 inches long (49th percentile)
- Head circumference: 15 inches (77th percentile)
We love you more than anything and are so, so thankful for you! Keep growing, little man!
Lots of love,
