Okay, so this is a few days late, but I really want to document each month of Ethan's first year of life.
Ethan, you are 1 month old! You are the sweetest and easiest newborn and we LOVE you more than words can say.
~Your nicknames are "Buddy" and "Little man".
~Right now you are wearing newborn size diapers and you are about to grow into size 1 diapers.
~You're still wearing newborn clothes.
~You weigh about 7 pounds. 7 pounds doesn't sound like much growth from your 6lb, 10oz birth weight, but you lost a LOT of weight in the first week and a half of life. Right now we are taking you in for weekly weight checks and you are consistently going up! Yay!!
~You are nursing every 2-3 hours.
~You sleep about 18 hours a day but in the last week you have been staying awake for longer periods of time. You're usually awake all morning and all evening. In the afternoons you sleep a lot.
~In the last week you have discovered your voice. You aren't quite "coo-ing" yet, but you're trying.
~You are our cuddly baby. Sometimes you fuss just a little simply because you want to snuggle.
~Your sister adores you and is constantly wanting to help me take care of you. She'll bring you your pacifier or tell me that you're crying and you're hungry. ;-) I can't wait to watch your relationship develop with your sister.
~You haven't smiled yet, but Mommy can't wait to see that first purposeful grin on your face.
We love you Ethan and we can't wait to see your personality come out more. We also can't wait to see the plans that God has for you!
I know I say this all of the time, but this is my favorite picture of Ethan now. :)
