This post was written and all of the pictures were taken on July 7, 2014, which was Oliver’s 1 month birthday. Nevermind, that it’s taken me 10 days to actually getting it posted. =)
Height & Weight: 8 pounds, 8.5 ounces and 21 inches long
Sleep: Depends on the time of day…at night, you sleep great! You usually take your last bottle of the day between 9:30-11:30 pm. You wake up between 2:00-4:00 am (on nights when we are really lucky, you’ll sleep for 5-6 hours straight) to take another bottle and then fall sleep again until 5:30-6:30 am.
During the day, though, you are bright eyed and bushy tailed! You LOVE the morning time and usually stay awake for 2-3 hours in the mornings (this is when you and Daddy get some of your best one-on-one time). You will usually fall asleep for a few hours and then spend the rest of the day fighting sleep and only taking 15-30 minute cat naps. What can I say…you have 2 parents who are very social and don’t like to miss anything…I think it’s in your genes. J
Diet: You are currently eating around 7 bottles per day of about 4 oz. of breast milk or formula.
Diapers: You are still wearing Newborn diapers, but since we are almost out of those, you are about to move up to Size 1s…especially since you are over 8 pounds now.
Clothes: We have a very petite little boy on our hands! Mommy failed big time and didn’t buy many Newborn sized clothes before you were born! That was a mistake! You were so small in the hospital that even Newborn sizes were too small! You are finally starting to fill out your Newborn clothes though and you are even starting to wear some of your 0-3 Month items even though ALL of those are way too big!
Favorite Things: Bassinette, Bouncer, Activity Mat, Boppy, SwaddleMe sleep sacks
Likes: Being held, taking a bath, being swaddled, going on car rides, being out in public
Dislikes: Diaper changes, clothing changes, being hungry, being laid in your bassinette without being rocked to sleep, dirty diapers
Social: You are quite the social butterfly, sweet boy! In your first month of life, you have already been to a few restaurants, your first pool party, a birthday party, the mall, Mommy’s office to meet her co-workers, and your first church service. While you slept through most of these activities, I can tell you are going to LOVE being out and about where you can see the world.
Milestones: The milestone that Mommy and Daddy are most proud of is that when we lay you on your activity mat underneath one of the toys that hang from the bars, you will hit it with your fist…it’s pretty much the most adorable thing to us. J You also lost your belly button when you were just over 2 weeks old, and you slept for your first 6 hour stretch at 2 weeks old as well (we are still waiting on this to happen again).
