Where did this month ago? A month ago our baby boy was born! Already I can't imagine our world without him.
Because my mommy brain can't keep track of things, I've decided to try out a list format for Alex's monthly updates.
Weight: Mommy guesses around 10 lbs, but no official weight since his two week appointment
Clothing Size: 0-3 and 3 months. Mommy finally gave up on shoving him into newborn clothes.

Eating: Alex is a much much less exhuberant eater than his big brother. He nurses every three hour or so throughout the day and night. It's going well, (with the exception of my oversupply sometimes being a bit much for him) and I happily already know all of the things that make it easier for me (side nursing, nursing in a carrier, etc). Alex also had his first bottle this month!
Speaking of carrier, I borrowed a ring sling and I am loving it! So much cooler than my moby and easier and faster (important when chasing a toddler around!) I don't have a picture of us in it handy, but here is Alex after I slipped out of it. :)
Sleeping: So far Alex is a much better sleeper than Colin. He sleeps peacefully in his bassinet(thank you Aunt Beverly and Uncle Don!) and only wakes up to eat. He is fairly easy to get to sleep and will sleep most places (except his swing, he doesn't like the swing much).
I think my favorite thing has been how alert Alex seems to be watching Colin. I know he can't see very far yet, but he seems to follow Colin whenever he's nearby. It's really amazing.

And just because, me and my baby. <3
