We are officially one month into being a family of five. I promised myself I would do my best to record these sweet boys’ milestones in a similar way I did for Laney, which is definitely harder said than done at this point. But we will start with monthly letters and pictures. 🙂 I’ll have to add their updated weights and heights after our doctor appointment next week.

1 Month Old:
You are our sweet, noisy (and nosey!) little guy. You make the loudest grunts and snorts of any baby I’ve ever heard whether you are awake or sleeping. They get louder and more frequent when you are hungry, which is quite often. 😉 You also don’t like to miss out on what is going on around you and have pretty long periods of awake time at various times of the day. Luckily, those awake periods are mostly during the day. When you hear new voices, you like to keep an eye on them (even taking a peek if you are super sleepy). Your face is very animated during your active sleep – eyes rolling, big smiles/laughs, and different facial expressions. We think you may have given us a few real smiles, but it’s hard to tell since you give so many gas smiles too. You definitely prefer to be held – especially in the evenings, and you are not a fan of laying flat in your crib to sleep yet. We love to kiss on your chubby cheeks, and you remind me so much of your daddy so far. You are such a perfect addition to our family! We love you so!
Oliver| 5 lbs 15 oz (5 lb 10 oz when we came home)| 18.5 in long
1 Month Old:
You are our sweet, sleepy little peanut. You hardly make a peep unless you are hungry and then you have quite the set of lungs on you! We call you “Mr. Serious.” You often have a furrowed brow or give a serious stare off into the distance – makes me wonder what you are thinking about. 😉 You love to sleep – especially snuggled up on our chest. You grab onto our shirts when we are holding you and it’s like you’re saying, “Please don’t put me down!” You also love holding onto fingers, which your big sis loves! The way you stretch out your little legs when laying down is the cutest. You’ve had a really hard time with constipation the last couple of weeks, which was breaking mama’s heart, but we seem to have it figured out. When you are sleeping, you breathe with your whole belly and love to have your hands by your face. Your big blue eyes remind me of your big sister’s, and I can’t wait to see your personality develop. You, too, are such a perfect addition to our family! We love you so!
