1 month fun facts
Luke, is 10 pounds and 4 ounces. He is 22 inches long and fits into 3 month old clothes perfectly. He is already into size 1 diapers. I feel like we totally skipped the newborn size for everything! He loves to be cuddled and talked to. He tolerates his big sister holding him. He will look for our voices when we talk to him and will maintain okay eye contact with us. He is getting better at smiling at us and we love it! He likes to be sung to and rocked when he is tired or upset.
Okay, go ahead..ask me if he is sleeping through the night? Answer is.... nope! He is only a month old and eats a lot...so there really is no time for sleep for anyone! He does like to sleep more during the day and tends to want to hang out at night. I think I am managing 1 - 1.5 hours of sleep between his night time feedings. So on a good night I get about 4-5 hours of sleep all broken up. Thank goodness for coffee, no really I am so thankful to the man who discovered it! During Luke's 2am feeding he likes to hang out the most and gives me lots of smiles. It is nice to have that time with just him. I may be really sleepy at the time but I do really enjoy that special time with him and I know soon it will be gone and he won't want to hang out with me at 2am everyday.
Ted and I are doing a lot better with diaper changes and getting peed on a lot less! I think we have become faster at it. Hopefully we can keep our "not getting peed on" streak going! I'm sure soon it will break.
Kinley as a big sister
For the most part Kinley is doing so well with transtioning to being a big sister. She loves to hold her brother and sometimes gets mad that I get to hold him and not her. She is learning to be more patient and that playing by herself is okay. She is trying to learn to use her quiet voice more often and that screaming while Luke is sleeping is not always a good idea. She tries to read to Luke and loves to "help" dress him and change his diaper. She really is such a good helper to me and her brother...when she wants to be. ;)
Until next time!
That is all the time I have to write about how little, or not so little, Luke is doing and how we are all holding up!
