It's that time again. Time to start another round of monthly birthday photos. Not gonna lie, I really like doing these. This time around, instead of making up a sign and trying to force him to sit patiently with it, I'm going to use a calendar (and try to make him sit patiently with that). Don't worry, I'm not suddenly creative. I think this idea came from Ashley Ann.
How he spends a lot of his time these days. Well, the crying part. Not so much the laying naked on a calendar part.
So big!! I need to see if they make XXL calendars for big babies. I'm sure it's a common request.
One month stats........and other news.
*I weighed him yesterday at home----a little over 10lbs. At his two week checkup he was 8 lbs 2 oz-----up from 7lbs 2 oz at his one week dr visit. So, looks like he's following in big brother's footsteps with the pound-a-week plan.
*Right now he wears 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. I stuffed him in a newborn outfit today so I could feel like he was still teeny. I wonder when I'll stop doing that..............
*Charlie mostly keeps a 3 hour eating schedule. Sometimes, especially in the middle of the night, he tricks us and starts crying after 2ish hours. We're not so good at math at 2am, so he gets to eat early. But for the most part, he makes sure his meals are right.on.time. And, no wonder home boy is gaining weight like it's nobody's business.
*He is pretty needy these days. Lots of crying, so lots of holding. He hates the Moby, so no breaks for me during the day. I get almost nothing done everyday. Pretty amazing. In fact, I hold him and hangout with him so much, this morning when John took over at 3am and I didn't hold him again until 9am, I was starting to feel a little weird. No baby in my arms, so much "free time" to take Harvey to breakfast and even take a shower. I almost didn't know what to do. Almost.
*A funny story I shared on facebook. The other night I was giving him a bath and I was using the cradle cap brush on his head. All of the sudden, I realized I had rubbed a giant bald spot right on the front of his head. Lots of flaky dead skin came off, but so did all of his fine baby hair. His hairline is awesome now. There are so many times a day I wonder who in the world left me in charge.
After you're done here....
