There is a crazy time phenomena going on in our household… the time between 8am and 6pm seems to go slow and I fumble through the day, yet this month has been the fastest month of my life. I have learned so much in this last month about myself and this kid, and I think I googled more in the last month than I ever have as well.
You can put a newborn back to bed if they have hiccups. Don’t worry, I googled it.
Jack started to give us a couple more hours of sleep at night. Thank God, because I thought we were going to have to return him. We have had a couple nights where he has slept 5 – 7 hours! We both thanked him, personally.
He’s starting to be more aware of his environment, too. Following objects and loving those ceiling fans. He’s also working on his tummy time, and I cannot wait for him to get the dogs in his sights, making tummy time even more fun. I’ll keep you posted. We also think he’s grown quite a bit, though I don’t know how much these pictures convey this? His pajamas which he was swimming in, now are beginning to fit! Go Jack!
I just cannot believe how attached I have become to this kid in such a short time. He makes me laugh daily with all of his expressions. Serious old man face (that center part in his hair and chin rolls I want to eat up!) to Toothless grin and Katy Perry “Roar” impressions! Ha. He’s such a ham and I love him SO much.
Happy one month, Jack! I’ll love you more than you’ll ever know… well, maybe when you have your first baby, you’ll realize just how much.
