One Month Stats

Davis was one month old on April 23. We took him for his one month checkup on the 24. He'd grown a lot!
Weight: 10 pounds, 11.3 ounces
Length: 22.25 inches (I thought it was 21.75, but this is what the form they sent home with us said)
Head Circumference: 38 cm

Milestones at 1 month (so I won't forget, not because I think you need to know): holding his head up, focusing on faces and/or objects for short periods of time, sometimes pushing his shoulders up, sometimes smiling (at least Nana and Cady claim he did), holding onto my shirt or me when he nurses

Speaking of nursing, I thought (before D was born) that I might want to nurse longer this time than I did with Cady (13 months). After one month, I'm thinking, "Hurray, only 11 more to go!" ;-) In all seriousness, nursing is going really well. It's just time consuming and because he's still eating so frequently I feel tethered to him. BUT, he has taken a bottle or two (from Chad) so that's good. Of course, then I have to pump. Oh well, it's worth it!

I haven't forgotten about the birth story, but I just can't get motivated. I think I've just been too tired to do anything that required that much thought. BUT, little bit 2.0 is getting bigger and sleeping for longer stretches at night so maybe I will finish it soon.
