I’m not sure how this blog post is here already. My baby boy is 1 month old!
It’s been quite a transition to three kids. I’m actually glad we are moving because Chuck has been home to help out with the kids. I’ve really been trying to take it easy as much as possible so I can be in top-top shape for our move. The girls get along most of the time, but whining and fighting has been a frequent thing. We have so much going on and haven’t spent as much time with them as we would like (and that they need). But they both love their brother…maybe too much at times. 🙂 They are so helpful with him and so gentle. I love when they want to hug him and say good night. Dannie waves and says “nigh nigh, brudder”. Melts my heart!
As of the other day, Alex weighs 8 pounds, 9 ounces. He’s had a big weight gain (over a pound in two weeks). But I’m not surprised by that because he’s been an around-the-clock, eating machine!
For the most part, he sleeps really well. Last week he got a cold and slightly elevated temp (which we are still dealing with.) It has made him wake up more at night. But he’s only 4 weeks old. I can’t complain because I am getting some sleep at night. I also try to take naps when I can.
Alex is such a sweet, happy baby…except when you strap him into his car seat. He very much dislikes it! 🙂
He is spending more time awake during the day. I just love his big (I think blue) eyes. He gets such a serious look on his face. I love how wise (annoyed?) he looks when he gets so serious!
Alex has definitely completed our family and we all love him to pieces. Happy 1 month birthday little man!
