The Busy Giffs: Happy 1 Month Little Man!

June 7, 2014

Happy 1 Month Little Man!

Look whose been with us for a full month already!?


Our little man is a weed, always growing! He's already 10 lbs 10 oz! he was 8 lbs 6 oz at birth so that's an awesome gain! Additionally he grew 2 1/2" and is now 22 1/2 inches long!
The doctor was super impressed when he found out he was breastfed and growing so well!


He looks like David at times and Emmalee at times.  He has my lips but he's mostly daddy. He's got the same ears and eyes as Emmalee, which were both inherited from their father.

Firsts and Milestones:

No specific milestones or firsts yet, but he has been working on holding up his head and on Tuesday (exactly 4 weeks old), while doing tummy time he flipped onto his back.  Today at the doctor he did it again.  But that's a 3 day gap between.. he can't really being rolling already... he's only a month old... 


One word: Champ.
We have had three not so wonderful nights since he was born, but most nights he goes down around 7 pm and will sleep until about 2 am.  Sometimes he wakes up around 11 for a quick feed but that's rare.  After the 2 am feeding (which is usually 45 minutes!) he goes back to bed until about 7 am. He fights sleep during the day, he likes to be sitting up and seeing everything. Most of his day time sleeping is only 20-30 minutes at a time, unless he's in his swing or we're driving. 


Entirely breast fed still. He is great at nursing and I'm hoping we can go a full year like I did with the princess. He had his first bottle on Wednesday. Em and I ran out for some errands and Dave gave him 2 oz in a bottle. Unlike his big sister, Tyler had no problem taking it!


He just cries and grunts.  Lifting his head requires a grunt. Kicking his legs around requires grunting. A diaper change or need for food warrants crying. Gas pain crying is the worst.

His favorites:

He loves his swing! You could leave him in it all day if you wanted. And the sun. He loves being outside and if he's i his swing he turns his face to be in the sunlight.
Otherwise, he pretty much just likes sleeping and eating.

My favorites:

I am loving the late night nursing session. I'm sure I won't eventually (like when I go back to work) but right now, I love the quiet moments just watching what I made and seeing him grow from what I'm producing.  It's pretty magical and I missed a lot of it with Emmalee, being stressed about whether or not I was "doing it right".
