1 Month Old


I can't believe he's already a month old! He now weighs 10 lbs 8 oz and is 21 3/4 inches long. Cole has been a piece of cake compared to Ethan as a newborn, but we've still had a few rough times. He has been colicky the last week in the evenings and we just found out yesterday that he has a mild case of thrush. Oh joy! I never experienced that with Ethan. I'm thinking his crankiness is due to the thrush and he also has a BAD case of baby acne all over his face and head. (you are looking at a photoshopped baby!)

He's a cat napper during the day and it's about impossible to get him to stay asleep for long unless I lay down with him in my bed. I've been putting him in bed with me when I get up for the 2nd feeding of the night the last few nights. I feel like I'm getting more sleep that way plus I now feel safe putting him in bed with me.  When he sleeps with me he sleeps for longer stretches and wakes up a pretty happy camper :-)
The breastfeeding has been going so much better than it did with Ethan despite the case of thrush we are dealing with now. I'm proud to say he has not had 1 drop of formula either! By the 3rd day I was supplementing with formula with Ethan and had to continue until he was about 3 months old. 

The last couple of days he has started to really smile which makes everything over the past month so worth it :-)

Oh my goodness, what a cutie! and already a month old! I too have two boys so I can relate on so many levels. The co-sleeping thing is so great for getting that much needed sleep. He looks amazing!
