Today is Simon’s one month birthday. Time really does fly.
The little man is growing like a weed. He was up 11oz last week. He is still taking pumped milk from mama from a bottle – almost a quart a day! I still want to make one more attempt to get him feeding directly from me – but not so sure it will work. I got so injured the first time I have a hard time letting him try again.
He is a champion sleeper! The last 7 nights he has been up only once a night – somewhere between 3:30am and 5:00am for a feed and it is stretching further back all the time. We may get through the night to 7am here some night very soon. We are so thankful for our good sleeper. We prayed for a good sleeper for 9 months and God does answer prayer! :-) We feed him every three hours during the day – we do wake him up if we need to – but now he is usually up and squawking for his dinner right about at the 2:45 mark.
He likes to be home and in a calm environment – days when we go out to run errands you can tell a real difference in how he handles. He gets overstimulated and then is sort of wound up the rest of the day.
Grandma Beckie is here for two weeks and it is great having all her help. She has taken over bottle duty from Steve – I almost never give a feed. I suppose there will be many months for that later.
We have had some time to get out for some fun since Grandma has been here…
And a lot of time to be cozy at home and get lots of cuddles…
