My First Sweet Bean:
Today you are one month old. You have gotten very big. Although we started out losing weight, I know you are past your birth weight now. We will find out what you weigh on October 27th when we visit the doctor again. Last time you were 7 lbs 15 ounces. I'm betting your close to 9 lbs now.
You weren't able to breastfeed. It was too hard for you because mommy didn't make enough to satisfy you. Now you are strictly on bottles and you couldn't be happier, because you get all you want to eat. We were suppose to be doing supplemental feeds of 2 oz. You normally eat 3 ounces every 3 hours, but occasionally eat up to 5 ounces. Mommy likes it when you eat 5 ounces right before bed because you sleep longer.
You are a great baby. You only really cry when you are hungry and sometimes when you just want to be held. You even let mommy get sleep at night by only waking up once to feed.
I love all the actions you do with your hands while eating too! You're so cute when you take your hands and fold them under your chin. You also drape one of your hands over the bottle like you are making a statement that, "This is my bottle!" You even look like you are holding the bottle sometimes! At other times you make your hands into fists and put them up on your cheeks and it is very adorable.
We've been grocery shopping twice, to wal-mart three times, GNC once, and church twice. Now that mommy is not pumping, we'll be going to church a lot more often and maybe even to other places too!
Daddy and I love you very much and look forward to raising you during your second month! Keep growing and being the sweet little bean that you are. Below are some pictures of you from today on your first month!
