11.30.12 - 1 Month

CONNOR

You are 1 month old today. I. CAN. NOT. BELIEVE. IT! You have brought so much joy, happiness and laughter into our lives in the last 30 days. We are beyond blessed and lucky to have you as our son.


As amazing as the last month has been, there have been times when you have tested my ability to take care of you. When you first came home, we had problems with you throwing up your formula, which caused you to lose a little too much weight. We took you to your pediatrician (who we love) and Dr. Hansen prescribed you medicine for reflux. Ever since then, you eat so well and haven't gotten sick. In 30 days, you've only had a bad day once. You spent an entire day crying and fussing. When Daddy got home, you didn't do much better with him. After 3 hours, you finally gave in to sleep. I think you were just so dang tired. Since then, you've been our normal happy boy.

You are the best baby. Seriously. You don't fuss unless you are tired, hungry or weight. You like to cuddle and when you are tired, you snuggle up close and we can rock you to sleep within minutes. You sleep 3-4 hours during the day, 2-3 times a day and at night, you have slept as long as 5.5 hours straight. We are feeding you 6-8 bottles a day. It just depends on how much you sleep. We must be feeding you enough because if the scale at home is right, you weigh about 9 1/2 pounds! I don't know if this is good or bad, but I like knowing you are growing and gaining weight!

Your features are changing and you are just the most handsome little guy. You still look like your cousin Jordan, it's so strange! You resemble your Daddy's side of the family much more than my side. You have your Daddy's long monkey toes and Jordan's long skinny fingers. You would think you would resemble me a little since I carried you for 9 months! Even though you don't look like me (at all), it's safe to say you hold my heart in the palm of your little hand.

In the last month, you have celebrated Thanksgiving and Macie's 2nd birthday. At both gatherings, you slept the entire time. You weren't very social but everyone commented on what a good baby you were. Something about all the noise and chaos made you one sleepy fella. You took your first road trip to Mamaw and Papaw's and slept the whole way. The real travel test will come next month when you, me and Mamaw fly to Texas.

We love you Connor and we are so excited to watch you grow!

  1. I can't believe he's a month old already! Seriously this baby growing stuff goes by FAST! Oh and Hunter looks nothing like me either, all that work we go through and they don't look a thing like us!

  2. What a cute little guy! Looking at photos of him and you I see a lot more of you than you give yourself credit! In fact, looking at your profile picture and looking at the handsome little man I see way more of you than I do your husband. :) Enjoy every minute! I can't believe my little monkey is already 8 months.
