Four weeks old

Bryson is already one month old, and I can't believe it has gone by so fast. We're starting to figure out this parenting thing, which I'm sure means everything will change soon. But so far so good.

Dad and Judy have been here this week cooking for us, holding the baby and letting me sleep in the mornings! It has been great.

Today Bryson had his one-month checkup today. He's now 9 pounds 11 ounces (2 pounds over his birth weight) and 21.75 inches (2.25 inches longer) and his head circumference is 14 inches. All those marathon feedings this week certainly helped.

Earlier in the week, he was insisting on eating for 4-5 hours almost straight at night. And it was taking its toll on me. By Tuesday, I was in tears because I was so tired, because he was still waking up at 3:00 am and 6:00 am too. Not enough sleep for me. Luckily that pattern broke on Tuesday night and we went to bed at 10:00 pm instead of 1:00 or 1:30 am. I'm feeling much better.

We are loving watching him grow fatter by the day. Every time I feed him I marvel at how fat his cheeks are getting. And I love to kiss those cheeks when he snuggles on my shoulder.

The cloth-diapering is going well, and we're keeping up with the laundry associated with that. I now know what the term "heavy wetter" is all about. That boy can soak a diaper like nobody's business.

Here's some photos from today when Mammy (Scott's grandma) came to visit.....

Here's his three-week photo since I was too busy last week to blog about it......

And here's a couple taken on February 22 that I haven't posted yet. I'm hoping to get more photos of him this weekend.

  1. Great photos! I'm still in shock that you allowed Jackie to put that hideous Dook onesie on your child! Shame, shame! :)
