Baby Hayes we have made it to one month!
Weight: 10 pounds
Height: 23.5 inches
Milestones: Rolled over tummy to back at 3 weeks 6 days, can track people and sounds, focusing on faces a lot, lifts head and pushes off during tummy time and when burping
Sleeping: Loves to sleep and is good at sleeping through brother's constant noise. Naps 1-2 hours between feedings, and sleeps about 2-3 hours at night.
Eating: Very fast nurser, much faster than brother. Eats about every 3 hours. We are trying to stretch nights but you don't seem to want to do that yet :).
Likes: Listening to brother, tummy time, lying flat on back, riding in the car, sleeping with mommy, snuggling with just about anyone, being rocked, listening to Christmas music, sitting outside.
Dislikes: Being gassy, being hungry, baths (although you managed not to cry through it today!), losing your paci
Favorite Things About You: Cupie doll lips, receding hair line, and your laid-back personality. And your ever-growing leg rolls! Ah, I could eat you.
Memories: Meeting ALL of your relatives including all great-grandparents, going on first road trip (you slept the whole time), seeing brother holding your hand in the backseat of the car during that road trip, your sweet sneezes and grunts, big brother imitating your cries (hilarious), and your first Halloween--you were a football, slept through all of it, went to trunk or treat and out for pizza. Mommy thought she lost your costume when she had it shipped to our old address, but Dad rescued it from new owners (and freaked out little old lady that now lives there). We felt like we were on a vacation all month with dad being home. We constantly held you, stayed up late watching movies, and ate a lot of good food! It has been a sweet time. Big brother is very concerned for "baby bruder" and constantly notifies us when, "baby crynin", or "baby eadin", or "baby seepin". You are very laid-back and are along for the ride in our life, much like your brother was. You have been to the corn maize, on a hay ride, to the grocery store twice, out shopping quite a bit, to lots of restaurants, to church twice, and probably a lot of other places I cannot remember at the moment.
I am super proud of myself right now! And I typed this with above baby in my arms. Must eat dinner and fold laundry now. Having a super-mom moment apparently…although still in pajamas. Adios!
