Knox Joseph, you are a month old! You are so easy so far-- I think we know what's going on a little better too. And we get easily distracted by a little 2 year old wild man that we also run after. But you are a little rock star who just hangs out in your swing. We love you.
At your one month appointment, you weighed 10 lbs 8 ounces (up from 9lbs 5 ounces at birth). The doctor said you are doing great!
You eat between 6 and 8 ounces when you take a bottle. You are a pretty good sleeper-- you easily fell into a 4 hours schedule (eating at 6am, 10am, and 2pm in the day; then roughly 6pm, 10pm, and 2am). You have gone some longer stretches and I am so thankful for that.
Is it inappropriate to say that you are a gassy, pooping machine?? I have never seen anything like it. You cannot stand to have a single burp left in your belly. You cannot relax til you get it all out. And you poop so so so much! I'm going to go broke buying diapers for you!
You are very tolerant of your big brother's loving. You have your fussy time in the evenings-- usually while are trying to eat dinner! But we make it work. You wake up every morning and accompany me to drop Jake off at school. The teachers and the babies in Jake's class make a big fuss over you every morning.
We are going to take a picture each month with the big teddy bear, so we can compare you to your brother. But I wanted you to have your own thing, too... so you will also take a picture on your back. I also learned my lesson with Jake-- rocking chairs are not so good for babies on the move. It was great at first, but pretty treacherous after a few months. So I'm hoping this method proves a little safer!
