One month milestones

  • Can't live without...... Fisher Price Rock n Play, aden + anais swaddle blankets, Sleep Sheep white noise maker, diapers, wipes, a ton of onesies, nursing tanks, a rocking chair, car seat and stroller, best diaper bag ever (no I did not pay that ridiculous price, I waited for the sample sale......80% off), Ju Ju Be pouch to keep my diaper bag organized (and if I need to change Mace when we're out to eat, I only have to grab this little thing and take him.....not dig through my whole bag), and a small light clipped to the edge of the pack n play so we don't have to turn on the lamp to check on him at night (we initially set the rock n play in the pack n play so that Lilly wouldn't be able to get to him and bug him at night.....we have left it in there because it makes the rocker sit higher and it's easier for me to reach him from bed).
  • Sleeping.....up to a four hour stretch at night.  Will usually do a good stretch of sleep somewhere from 11ish to 3ish.  Up for an hour to eat and hang out, then will go back to sleep until about 6.  Not too bad for four weeks old (though reaaaallly looking forward to a five or six hour stretch)!  Loves to sleep in his rock n play, doesn't care for sleeping flat.  Prefers to sleep in a long sleeve onesie (no legs) and a swaddle blanket.  During the day will nap anywhere from 20 minutes to two and a half hours.
  • Eating......every 2-3 hours except for his longer stretch at night.  Has only had two bottles so far, but we will start giving him more as we get ready for daycare in September.  
  • Diapers......around ten diapers a day (still orange from getting rid of the bilirubin), and we just made the switch yesterday from newborn diapers to size 1.  He's getting bigger!
  • Pacifiers......not a huge fan, although in the last week he has liked them a little better.  He prefers MAM and NUK.
  • Clothes....still in newborn, working on filling out some 0-3 and 3 month clothes.
  • Hair.....he has lost a little hair on the top, but he still has his nice brown hair on the sides and back of his head.  He pulls out a lot of my hair.....and Lilly's hair is just everywhere as usual.
  • Names we call him.....Mace, Macey, Chubby Bunny, Milkman, Buddy.  Oh and Little Potato Sack.
  • Weight......Mace is gaining, Mom is losing.  YAY.
  • New trick.....smiling!  Just in the last day or two he has started to crack some smiles with some prodding.  It's awesome.  Can't wait for giggles!
