One month

Our little man is one month old! And things are going so great. Because Claire has been such a sweet, amazing and easy child, everyone told us to watch out for number two. They all would tell us we'd get a really hard baby.  Well, so far they are wrong! I know we are only a month into it, but he has been so perfect so far. He rarely EVER cries.  When he is hungry, he just starts grunting (which is what Claire did).  He still sleeps a lot, but when he is awake, he is content and just looks around and takes all the love (AKA abuse) from Claire.  He does eat every 2 or 2.5 hours instead of 3 which can be exhausting for me, but he is a growing boy so it's all good. He is also about 8.5 pounds now! Hooray!  Nights are as expected, I get about a 3-4 hour stretch from 10pm or 11pm to 2am, and then he's back to eating every 2 hours. And the stretch from 5am-7am he's pretty much awake the whole time. So mommy doesn't get much sleep and it's starting to wear on me. I've been fighting a sore throat for a week or 2 and still hoping it goes away.  

Anyway, we just eat him up and love every minute with him. I love snuggling with him on my chest and feeling the warmth his little body generates. I love when his mouth is open and his cold breath hits my skin as he breathes. I love his grunts, squeaks, and smiles. He even full-out giggled in his sleep once. SO cute.  

We are so glad he is with us.  While he was asleep, I grabbed my camera and just basically documented what he does while he sleeps.  The only thing I did to change him was turn him on his stomach (which he loves) once. The rest is all him :)
