Aidan @ One Month

Since Aidan was one month old yesterday, I figured I should provide a little update of what he does these days:
  • Smiles; usually accidentally/unconsciously but sometimes he smiles at us and it seems like he sort of knows what he's doing.
  • Can move himself in the crib a little; we've found him against the edge and lying diagonal in there.
  • Scoots himself forward; if we put him on his belly and put our hands behind his feet, he can push off and move his whole body forward!
  • Grunts; usually just in the morning when we put him back down, but other random times too. Hard to figure out exactly why...
  • Loves to pee/poop when we take off his diaper; he's done that on both changing tables, and also peed in the bath and at the doctor's office!
  • Eats a lot; feeds every 2-3 hours during the day and every 3-4 at night. Last night he did a 5 hour stretch for the first time! Wahoo!
  • Holds his head up; as seen in the photos, he's pretty good at it!
  • Sleeps well; falls asleep easily in his own crib at night and during the day. Usually has extended wake times in the morning and evening, then shorter times throughout the day.

And a little Jenna update:
  • Showered and dressed properly every day!
  • Exercised every day for the last 2 weeks, and didn't even miss a feeding! I left Aidan with Isaac or Marie and left plenty of breast milk in the freezer, but he always seems to wait for me! He doesn't mind having a bottle though, which is nice.
  • Lost 20 pounds, but lots more to go...
  • Knit about 1/3 of his Christmas stocking. Got about 6 more weeks to finish it.

Smiling up at me.
