The last month has flown by and we are so thankful for the addition of sweet Brooks to our family!
The first month has included:
*Grocery store and Walmart runs
*Joe & Donna’s anniversary party
* You’ve officially met all of your grandparents and great-grandparents!
I’m guessing you weigh a little over 10 lbs.
Right at 4 weeks we switched to size 1 diapers. You’re still wearing most newborn clothes, except for jammies. They were getting too short so we moved up to 0-3 months!
You typically wake up once at night to eat, but the time is pretty unpredictable. Usually somewhere between 3-5 am. You have actually slept through the night 5 times already! Hopefully we’ll get more consistent with that 🙂
You do seem to have a little bit of a sensitive tummy. There have been a few times that you just can’t seem to get the gas out. Thankfully gas drops usually help, but sometimes we just have to wait it out. It makes mommy so sad to see you in pain and being so uncomfortable.
Aunt Mikaela gave you your first bottle at 2 weeks old and you took it like a champ. You’ve only had a bottle a few times, but have done really well with it.
You typically eat about every 3 hours. Awake for about an hour and then back down for a nap.
You LOVE bath time. As soon as we get into the bathroom and you hear the water running you instantly calm down and you just love to lay there and relax while I get everything ready. You don’t even cry when I take you out!
You love being swaddled. When it gets close to nap time, I wrap you up and you just relax and smile and coo. It’s the cutest thing. You’ve also started smiling and of course, that just melts my heart.
You are pretty easy going as long as you’re fed and well rested, you’re good to go! You love listening to your brother talk. When he’s in the room you are always looking in his direction. He can’t wait for you to get bigger so he can play with you 🙂 He’s always wondering what you are doing. “Is Brooksy up?” and he’ll always let me know when you are crying haha!
Beings I know firsthand how quickly it happens, I am savoring each little moment with you. I love watching you change right before my eyes. You are such a sweetheart and we love you so much!
