One Month Old!
Aiden has been here for a month, but it seems like we just brought him home yesterday! As you can see from the photos, this guy is chunking up quite a bit; we go to the pediatrician on Tuesday to find out his exact weight, but Mike & I are pretty sure he's over 8 lbs already.
A few things about our little guy at one month:
--He is getting better at only getting up once during the night--we hope we've turned the corner!
--He really is starting to enjoy having a bath, but he still tries to eat the washcloth when it's near his face!
--This guy is DEFINITELY a stomach sleeper--he naps much more soundly while laying on Mommy or Daddy's chest (not to worry--we make sure he's on his back when he's in his crib or pack-n-play).
--We've given him quite a few nicknames: Babykins, Buddy-boy, Cuddle Monkey, Frank Sinatra, Old Blue Eyes, and on and on and on.
--He's never really had a problem holding his head up--he really likes to study the face of whoever is holding him.
--Aiden loves to sit up in the Boppy--it helps him get a better look at things.
--We're really excited that he's starting to coo and smile--it just makes you melt to think he's trying to communicate!
So there's your one-month update. We're still getting adjusted to this whole thing, but it's getting easier. Here's to many more months of fun!
