1 month

My sweet boy turned one month old on Friday!  It's been so hard to get back into the groove of things.  As we speak, I'm typing with one hand and holding a sleeping baby in the other!


Weight:  9lbs, 7oz (big boy!!)
Height:  21 3/4 inches
Head:  14 inches
Diaper size:  He's still in size 1 (Pampers swaddlers)
Feedings:  I had to make the big decision on whether to stop breastfeeding and formula feed.  When he was 2-3 weeks old after each feeding he would scream bloody murder. I'm not really sure what the problem was.  I just couldn't stand to see him in pain and so upset.  I tried formula and he was happy as a clam.  He is currently on a soy based formula.  He eats 4-5oz every 3 hours.
Sleeping:  Sleep is hit or miss at night.  He can have a good night and then the next could be an awful night.  He sleeps in his Rock n Play in our bedroom. His naps are slowly dwindling down to one a day.  
What he LOVES:  He loves bath time, loves to lay on his playmat, loves snuggling in mommy or daddy's arms.  He's starting to mimic our faces.  He loves tummy time!  He was rolling over from his stomach to his back when he was not even 2 weeks old!  This is crazy I know, but I have the video to prove that he can do it!  He loves his swing!  He's still not really a fan of his bouncer, but I'm hoping that will change.  Trips to the grocery store are not his favorite.  He loves his soothe and glow seahorse, as well as his sleep sheep!  Anything that soothes him to sleep, he LOVES! 

of course I dressed him in his gamecock gear (this was brad's from when he was a baby) for the SC/Auburn game and we just HAD to lose!
Hopefully I can get into some kind of routine so I can blog everyday!  Anyone have any advice for routines with a 1 month old and a kindergartener?  It's just me and the kids during the day.  Brad has taken a new job in a different state.. It's only an hour and a half drive.  But he does the drive every day (Monday-Friday).  We will be moving within the next month or so.  We have a busy schedule ahead of us!
