One Month Old

making his tough face

Lawson is one month old today.  I don't even know where the time went.  Actually, I take that back.  I do know.  In the last month I have had a baby, Molly and Isabelle were both sick for two weeks, and then Isabelle had surgery and spent another week on the couch.  It has been a busy month.

Time flies when you're having fun, right? 


Here are some fun things about Lawson at one month old.

Weight:  8lbs even
Height:  who knows...haven't measured

Eating/Sleeping habits:  Eats pretty much every three hours, then is up for a bit and then takes a nap.  I am not as regimented as I was with Isabelle or Molly, but I still follow the eat/wake/sleep pattern from Babywise.  At night, Lawson will sometimes sleep as long as five hours but usually more like four before waking up the first time.  After that he is back to a three hour routine.

Pooping:  All. The. Time. 

Likes:  The bouncy seat, being held, and looking at his sisters.
Dislikes:  The swing, being put down, his carseat, and pacifiers (he is not a huge fan of the paci).

Clothes: Newborn.  Unless he is in a cloth diaper and then 0-3 months will fit.
Diaper size:  Newborn or a cloth.

Other fun things to know:  Lawson has been out and about some, mostly to church and yesterday was his first trip to the newborn nursery.  He has also visited the library, doctor's office, Grandma Kathy's house, and of course the store.  Also fun to know...Lawson does not spit up.  His sisters were both spit up queens, but not Lawson.  It is pretty rare for him to spit up.  Not so fun is the fact that he is extremely gassy.  So far gas drops and gripe water seem to do nothing.  Gas drops worked at first but have stopped helping at all.

Having a boy has been pretty life changing.  He is such a blessing to our family.  There have been some things to get used to (like being sure to point the wiener down) but overall I think we are doing just great!
