One Month Old



Oliver is now a little over one month old. This has been the fastest month of my life. The days just fly by. I never knew how much work a baby was. I'm lucky if I get to take a shower and brush my teeth before 11. It's crazy to think I went from this (the day I went into labor)



to this handsome little man.




Here are some things about Oliver at 1 month:

-Still won't sleep very well at night. He wakes up about every 1 1/2-2 hours, which means I probably get a total of 4-5 hours of sleep a night if I'm lucky.

-Great eater. He now weighs 12 lbs. He was in the 75% at his 2 week check up but I think that's changed now.

-Likes to nurse at least every 2 hours.

-Only takes two or three 1 hour naps during the day

-Smiles and coos.

-Loves the puppies

-Loves to sleep in our bed, but we're mean and take him to his crib as soon as he falls asleep.

-He can get out of any swaddle we try regardless of how tight. We call him Houdini

-And loves to hear the scriptures at night before bed for story time

ask Michelle what she read about how sleep helps baby to sleep even more. Very interesting. He sure is a cutie.

oh my goodness how cute is he!!! He is the same size as Macy and he is 6 weeks younger! Probably because he eats more often. I can't wait to see him when you come down.
