1 month!

Dear Sawyer,

Today you are 1 month old! This makes me happy and sad at the same time! The past month has totally changed my life and made me the happiest I've ever been. It also makes me sad because it is going by so fast! But I'm enjoying every moment...even those in the middle of the night. I just keep reminding myself that it won't be like this for long! You've already changed so much in the past month!

You weigh around 10 lbs. - we don't go back to the Dr. until you are 2 months but we weighed you at home and you are around 10 lbs. You have definitely put on some weight!

You are 20.5 inches long. So you've grown too!

You are a really good eater. We finally have the nursing down and you are eating every 3 or 4 hours. And then you usually stay awake for an hour or so after you eat. Then you'll sleep for a couple of hours and then wake up to eat again.

You are noisy baby. Always grunting, squeaking, etc.

We are struggling a little at night. You usually wake up twice during the night to eat and then you don't want to go back to sleep. You are very alert and will just look around. If someone is holding you. =) Once we put you down you start whining.

You like your paci but so far you aren't super attached to it. Sometimes you want it and will go to sleep with it and other times you won't.

But you are a GREAT baby. You rarely cry! Usually only if you are hungry or cold.

You are really strong and can hold your head up pretty good! You also love being on your belly. You love to sleep on my chest this way.

You are still wearing newborn size clothes but I think that will only last another day or two. They are getting pretty snug. Same with the newborn diapers...about time to move up to size 1.

You smiled at me this morning and my heart melted! I can't wait until this is happening more because I'm pretty sure it was the best thing I've ever seen!

I thank God for you every day! And I love you more than you will ever know!

Here are some pictures of you at 1 month old!
