Already a month

Yesterday! I can't believe you have already been in our life for an entire month. 1/9th of the time I was pregnant with you. But at the same time it's hard to remember what life was like with out you in it. You have all of us (your dad and brother especially) wrapped around your little finger. 

At 1 month you...
are finally on kind of a schedule of eat, wake time then sleep
you want to eat every 2.5-3 hrs a day but at night will go 5-6 hrs!
have given us a few smiles, but we can't wait for the real constant ones
as soon as you are fussy, jasper just has to sing to you and you immediately stop
can be content in the swing, bouncer, or boppy but love being held the most

in the evenings you become kind of fussy between 5-8 PM and rarely sleep during that time, you want to nurse frequently then, be held, rocked, talked to. If you are inconsolable all we have to do is walk outside with you. being outside is your Favorite.

During the day you nurse, but at night your dad will give you a bottle while I pump, and at this point you take 4-5 oz then! So maybe that's how much you get when you nurse as well? Obviously impossible for me to tell.

Bathes are your favorite. During your fussy time every other night I give you a warm bath and instantly you are calmed. You tend to get mad when we take you back out. 

Everywhere I go I have strangers stop and tell me how beautiful you are. Maybe they do this with all babies, I am having an impossible time remembering if this was the case with Jasper. Probably was, but I'll pretend they don't say that to every baby they see because it does make your mamma proud. 

I find myself often staring at you, amazed that we made you. That I grew your tiny toes inside my body. 

You are loved and we are so blessed to have you in our life.
