Liam~One Month Old


MILESTONES:  Rolling over!  You are a very strong baby, and have been wowing us with your strength since you were born.  Just after you turned 4 weeks old, you rolled from back to belly!  You also began to show us your first smiles.


COMFORTS:  Being swaddled.

FIRSTS:  First Labor Day.  We had a picnic with Daddy's family.  We also spent a lot of time with family and friends.

EATING: Mostly breastfed, but you are supplemented with a high-calorie formula due to weight loss.

SLEEPING:  You slept the entire month away!  You were very lethargic, which was one of the factors in your weight loss.


SOUNDS/WORDS: You squeaked while you nursed.  You sounded like a little mouse!

LIKES:  Being snuggled and warm.

DISLIKES:  Diaper changes, being cold, getting undressed, and taking baths. During diaper changes, you repeatedly rolled to your side, which led to us actually having to use the strap on your changing pad!

NICKNAMES:  Little Dude, Little Man, and Buddy.


HEALTH:  You had to go in for weekly weight checks.  By the end of your first month, you had lost over 1 pound.

STATS:  6 lbs 1 oz and 21.5 inches.

WEARING:  Preemie and Newborn clothing and Preemie and Newborn diapers.  Size 0 shoes are still too big for your tiny feet!

PERSONALITY: You are a very sweet, gentle, cuddly boy. You are very content, and love to snuggle in our arms. Your eyes are filled with so much sweetness that it takes my breath away!
