Davey at 1 Month

We made it through the first month! As far as babies go, I would give him an A-. He's not one of those miracle babies that sleeps through the night from birth and never cries, but he does sleeps well, is happy when he has a full tum and a dry bum, and fairly patient when he wants something. He loves to eat, snuggle, stick out his tongue, go for walks, and has been a great addition to our family. We love this little guy!

Davey at 1 Month
  • 23 inches long and somewhere between 10-11 pounds
  • Wears 3-6 month clothing
  • LOVES to eat and rarely goes more than 2 hours without asking to nurse.
  • Makes good eye contact with us now, and has starting making happy sounds instead of just grunting.
  • Has a strong neck and can support his head for short periods of time. He does well with tummy time and we've seen him roll from his stomach to his back more than once. 
  • Sleeps pretty consistently from 10:30 pm to 7:30 am, waking up to eat around 2 am and 5 am, sometimes more, but never less :)
  • Will tolerate the binky, but only as a distraction. It brings him no comfort and he normally spits it out a few times before accepting it. 
  • He's already caught 2 colds (one from Sophie, one from somewhere else), and it's sad to hear his congested breathing and little coughs.
  • Has short little eyebrows that stick straight up when he is mad. 
  • Is starting to enjoy bath more and now only cries when I take him out to dry him off. 
  • He seems to enjoy Sophie's presence, even when she is a bit too close and talking very loudly in his ear.

He's adorable! I had those same belly stickers for Weston and it is fun to see Davey in them!
