One Month Old!

Man, it's crazy how much less time you have to blog... and how much less time you have to do anything else once you have a baby. If you weren't a flexible person before, trust me, becoming a parent will teach you to be flexible! 
Liam turned a month old on the 14th... and clearly this did not get done on the 14th.

Weight: 10 pounds, 12 ounces.
Height: 22 inches
Clothing size: He's starting to fit in 0-3 month now! NOOOOO!!! :) Actually I'm kind of glad. I have so many cute clothes for them, but mostly they're bigger sizes. I didn't get many newborn clothes, so I'm glad he's growing out of them. And sad at the same time. He'll never be that small again....
.........*tears* seriously. ok...I thought I was okay with it....
Diaper size: Size 1
Feeding: He's starting to really get on a feeding schedule after he came down off his growth spurt. He's been eating about every 21/2-3 hours for about 20-30 minutes. Still breastfeeding, and it gets easier every day! whoo hoo! mama's happy.
Sleep: He is really only waking up once a night (if you don't count the midnight snack, which I don't because I usually stay up until I've given it to him). He's pretty regular with his sleeping patterns, with the exception of a few nights. He goes down at 9, gets his midnight snack (I'm considering moving his schedule around so that his late night feeding can be a little earlier) and then wakes up about 3:45 to eat. Then he sleeps til 7 or 7:30. So I am usually getting an okay amount of sleep, just not consecutively. I'm hoping that changes this month!
Milestones: He's really starting to pick his head up off whatever he's laying on, and hold it up for a bit longer each time! He's become much more alert this month, smiling more and more every day!
Adventures: Liam had so many adventures his first month! He went to Target for the first time, went to a few restaurants with mommy and daddy, went to a pumpkin patch, and saw the ocean for the first time when he took his first boat trip! He's destined to be a world traveler for sure!
 Mommy and Daddy could not get through the first weeks without: LOTS of babywipes. I knew we'd go through tons of diapers, but I'm actually surprised how quickly we've gone through the wipes!


  1. He is the sweetest. I honestly cannot believe he is already a month old. This makes me sad, because I know that before I can blink this will be happening to me, too! :( He is such a handsome little squirt. I love all of his little faces. The bow ties are so cute!

  2. Liam is too cute!!! I love the bow tie! We have a loud farter too…but for some reason it seems more acceptable for a boy! :)

    1. Ha Ha! It's funny how much more socially acceptable it is to fart when you're a baby!
