One Month

Happy One Month to our little man Grady!!
There are plenty of funny out takes from this little mini session....plenty of which resulted in tears beyond your wildest dreams ; )
So this is where we are at one month into life with a newborn and life with two children.....
Grady you are the best baby. We have only had 3 rough nights with you since we have been home. Those nights typically result in you not wanting to sleep from 2-6am....at all. Last night started out to be one of those nights, and I broke my own rule and let you fall asleep on my chest in our bed. This resulted in you laying down next to me and snoozing for a good 7 hours. Holy Jesus, I had no recollection of how fabulous it was to sleep that long!! Thank you sweet baby. But, just remember that tonight....game on for the bassinet (or car seat....don't judge us)
You are still in newborn clothes and newborn Pampers Swaddler diapers.
You are learning to enjoy a nice warm bath, you love your warm bottles when it is time to eat and you enjoy being soothed with a pacifier.
You love your swing and you LOVE your car seat. You take the best naps there and often there have been many nights that you sleep ALL night long in that thing. We just put it in the bassinet, so mentally it's like you are sleeping in there, right?!
Your big sister adores you. When you are sad (getting your diaper changed) she will come stand next to you and hold your little hand and sing the ABC song. If you are still not consoled, she will move on to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I am worried for the time you squirm your way around and pee in her face. She's just at the right height for you to do that when she kneels on the chair next to the pack and play. She may never want to sing again! LOL
You are eating every 3 hours (3-4oz) and there are times at night we can get you to a 4 hour stretch. Last night's 7 hour stretch was a crazy fluke, I am sure.
We love you Grady and wish you a happy One Month Birthday!!!
