Our sweet little man is ONE month old today!
I can pretend to be shocked about how fast this month went by but I know it all too well. These babies grow if you blink. Just in the past few days I've noticed a big change in Baker's size. He no longer feels like a feather to me. He is filling out before my eyes and while it's a wonderful thing to see him thriving, I can't handle him getting big. According to our home scale, he is weighing in right at 8 pounds!
His eyes remain a dark blue (almost navy) and his hair is dark brown. We didn't think so at first but he totally has the Hermann hairline just like his big brother!
A couple of days before he turned one month, we started getting those sweet little smiles. I haven't been able to capture it on camera until this afternoon, and of course it was blurry! They are still very few and far between but when he does...oh my momma heart!!!
Baker's personality is wonderful so far. He is super laid back and peaceful. It's like he knows he's the 3rd child. The only times he cries is when he's cold right out of the bath while I get him ready for bed, and occasionally when he's hungry. He's very alert a lot of the day but calm as can be!
Mimi got him this cute monthly chalkboard, which we had so much fun with today.
Baker is quickly learning how exhausting it is to live with a lady who takes so many pictures! I promise you'll thank me later little buddy.
Let's talk about sleep. We have been blessed yet again with a wonderful little sleeper. You still sleep a lot during the day, but also have lots of awake time as well. You came home sleeping 4 hour stretches at night and haven't stopped yet. While I was having to wake you up at first, I don't have to do that anymore because you are consistently waking every 4 to 4.5 hours on your own during the night. Your sister slept through at 5 weeks, so you have a little catching up to do in a week, but believe me son, we have no complaints about your sleep! You even napped like a champ in your crib for the first time today.
He's a good little eater, eating every 3 hours during the day and clustering in the evenings when I wake him every 2 before bedtime. All momma's milk, mostly breastfeeding but practicing with that bottle when we can! So far so good in that department, but they all were at this point so we aren't in the clear just yet.
Let's talk about who this little guy looks like. Here is the compare of the 3 kiddos. I'm totally seeing Meyer with Hadley's lips and coloring.
Looks like our brothers are going to look alike at this point!
As expected with baby number 3, the camera hasn't been out as much as with the others, but here are a few I did capture this month!
I can't even look at his one! He was so so tiny!
Month One...that's a wrap!
You've been the most perfect addition to our family, Baker boy! I can't believe we ever questioned having a 3rd baby because you've been the best thing that's happened to us. You have brought SO much happiness to our life in your short month here and we can't wait to watch you continue to grow and be a part of our tribe.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE you sweet Baker Melloy!
