Luke is 1 Month Old!

Our little Luke is one month old and we can hardly believe how the time has flown by! I guess that is mostly because our days seem to mesh one into the other -- I go from tired and bleary eyed feeding at 3 am to a tired and bleary eyed feeding at 3 pm. We wouldn't trade it, though. We are so in love with this little guy!

Here are a few pics to show just how much he has grown.

Filling out his car seat well.

Wearing big boy clothes.

A little love from Mommy.

Finally someone else can help feed you in the wee hours!

Dr. Fine delivered Luke in scrubs and high heels. My kind of woman!

One Month Update:

Weight: 10 pounds, 1 ounce (85th percentile; was 7 pounds, 5 ounces at birth - huge gain!)
Length: 21 1/2 inches (50th percentile; was 20" at birth)

  • wears size 1 Pampers, 0-3 mo onesie and 3 mo sleepers
  • can pick up his head and move it from one side to the other
  • still eats every 2-3 hours
  • developed baby acne at about 3 weeks
  • hiccups frequently
  • likes to sleep on tummy, side and back
  • moved from cradle in our room to crib in his own room at about 3 weeks
  • LOVES the vibration of the bouncy seat, riding in the car, or walks in the stroller
  • not yet a huge fan of the swing
  • took his first bottle at 1 month, 2 days old
  • loves his bath and especially having his hair washed
  • STILL has his cord because the hospital cut it so short it couldn't dry well; pediatrician said to keep cleaning it and not to let it be submerged in bath water; might have to do something about it if not gone by 2 months
  • longest stretch of sleep thus far has been 4 hours and it is rare!
  • calm baby, not fussy unless needs to eat or be changed or his tummy hurts
  • smiles in his sleep, giggles in his sleep
  • HATES having his diaper changed and hates to be cold; in fact, he starts to wail as soon as you lay him on his changing table before you even start taking the clothes off
  • LOVES to be held and cuddled
  • LOVES to be swaddled tight

More to come as we progress into month 2!
