Bear At 1 Month

It is hard to believe that you joined our family a month ago. The days are long and the nights are short. The past month has been sort of a blur. Between the sleep deprivation and Postpartum Depression, I guess you could say the past month has been an adventure.

You have grown so much in the past month Bear. You went from 8 pounds and 13 ounces to over 10 pounds. Your a pretty chill baby unless you have a burp or a dirty diaper. You are just like your big brother was at this age. As soon as you poop or pee your diaper you want it changed. We go through about 15 diapers a day with you at the moment.

Sleep at night has been hit and miss. Some nights you go down for bed early and other nights you go down later. The longest stretch of sleep you've had is 6 1/2 hours. The kicker though is when you wake up and insist on being up for two hours in the middle of the night, those are the nights we dread.

You love laying on your changing pad and looking up at the ceiling fan and kicking your legs. I love it when you smile and Daddy loves the horse noises you make. And your big brother, he loves to help change your diaper. Every time you cry out he says, "Baby!" and comes running to your aid.

We are so glad you are a part of our little family, Bear! We look forward to watching you learn and grow. We can't wait to start taking you on adventures with us!
