I honestly have no idea where this month has gone. A lot of it is honestly sort of a blur. I feel like I'm still treading water and we are just sort of in survival mode right now. But that's okay! I know now how fast this newborn craziness passes, so I'm join going to savor it while it lasts.
At one month..Soren wants to eat 20-40 minutes every 2-3 hrs during the day, and will give me one 4, maybe 4.5 hr stretch at night. At this point Tindra was sleeping 6 hrs at a time so hopefully S gets there soon too! Mamma would Really love some sleep since naps (for me) aren't happening anymore.
He detests the swing, really hoping that changes as well. Tolerates the bouncer for a few minutes at a time, and will sometimes sleep in there during the day. Otherwise he just wants to be held. By me. People keep asking if he's a good baby, and my response is usually 'as long as he's being fed and held he's an angel'.
He is a LOUD sleeper. Even right now, he's asleep in the bouncy chair next to me, snoring and grunting like an old man. Sure doesn't help with my sleep at night!
Has given us a few little smiles, but mostly he just glares, grunts and sleeps.
He has started taking a bottle in the middle of the night that I have pumped, but for some reason if Drew feeds him (he's the only other person who has tried) he gulps and sucks it down so fast he spills half of it so even though he Will take a bottle, he will only take it from me. So sort of useless. But that's okay, I have zero plans of leaving him anytime soon!
He loves being held and rocked, and the noises he makes while sleeping on my chest, there's nothing like it.
The whole family is just obsessed with him and I can't wait to see his little personality emerge even more!
