I can't believe Dane and I have a one-month-old! We love Adler so much and we love watching him grow and change. In one month a lot has happened in his little life.
I gave birth at 38 weeks and 4 days so my mom wasn’t planning on coming out for another week. Dane was able to take the full week off and it was nice to figure out how to be parents together in the first week and create amazing bonds with Adler. That next week my mom came out and it was so nice to have her here. She was very helpful and gave lots of good advice (she has done this 5 times, although this is her first grandchild). Dane went back to work that week and it was hard to say goodbye to him.
Then my family came out for Spring Break and Adler loved meeting all his aunts. Here are some things about Adler’s first month.
-Last time we weighed him (at 3 weeks and 2 days) he weighed 8 lbs and 8 ounces which is the 23 percentile for weight. His next doctor appointment will be at 2 months. I might go weigh him before then.
-He is still in his newborn clothes. This makes me happy because he is still so tiny but we only have 5 outfits because everyone said they grow out of this size so quickly. I can’t wait to put him in new outfits even though that will mean he is getting bigger.
-He loves to have his hands by his face which is so cute.
-He has already seen two movies in the theater; Divergent and Captain America and he was great!
-He likes his pacifier but sometimes it takes a while for him to realize it’s in his mouth and start sucking on it. But I am glad he will take one.
-He likes it when we sing to him. Too bad I’m not a better singer.
-He use to eat every 2 hours but now it’s more like every 3 hours. He sleeps for 3 hours at night then wakes up eats and gives us another 3 hours of sleep. Sometimes he will sleep 5 to 6 hours. The first time this happened it freaked me out a little and I kept checking to see if he was breathing.
-He smiles a lot and it’s so cute. I don’t know if he is smiling at something we did or just smiling but I love it!
-He loves the car and his carseat and stroller. I can’t wait for it to get warmer so we can go on walks. P.S. Idaho, it’s almost May, it should be warmer!
-He is a great baby! He doesn’t really cry and he is always so alert. I think we will get the hang of sleeping through the night soon (or we hope he will).
-He makes a ton of faces and we love them all! I will try to capture them all on camera.
We love Adler and we think he is the cutest thing ever (we might be a little biased). I love his big eyes and how he will just look at us. I want him to stay tiny forever and always be my little boy.
We have been taking lots and lots of pictures!
I love my mamaroo!
He loves his stroller!
