Benjamin: 1 Month Update

I can't believe it's already been a month since this little guy made his entrance into the world and changed our lives forever. 

Age: 1 month

Height: 22 in

Weight: 9 lbs 12oz

Likes: Now that the weather is finally getting nicer, we've been heading outside for daily walks. Whether in his stroller or carrier, he loves the fresh air. Ben also loves bath time. He can be screaming and crying and when we put him in a warm bath, he instantly chills out-he is going to be such a water baby this summer! 

Dislikes: Sleeping at night! Ben loves his naps during the day, but is not fond of sleeping at night...

Sleeping: Sleep-what's that?!

Eating: Breastfeeding was rough at first-really rough-but things have gotten better since seeing a lactation consultant. It feels like we're finally getting the hang of it-and he's gaining weight which is the most important thing!

Milestones: This week Ben's really started to focus on faces and objects hanging in front only him. He is getting so strong-practicing holding his head up and kicking! He's almost given us a smile a few times-we can't wait to see it!

What I want to remember: Everything!! I'm such a sap to begin with, but motherhood has really amped that up! Lately, Ben's been wrapping his hand around my finger like he's holding my hand-it's the sweetest thing. Also while feeding, he'll reach his hand up like he's giving me a hug-it makes my heart just melt!


It's been so much fun watching you grow this month-can't wait to see what the next month brings! You are such a joy in our lives and we love you so very much!
