One Month

Happy 1 month birthday, James Robert! 

Weight: 11 lbs and 6 oz.  He is in the 90% for his weight earning him the continued nickname chunky monkey.

Health: He received an exemplary checkup.  He only cried for a few minutes after his hepB shot!

Sleep:  He sleeps better during the day, however, with each passing week has gotten a bit better sleeping at night.  The longest stretch he has slept is 5 hours. He loves to nap with his Daddy and in his swing!

Social: James Robert had SO many visitors in his first month! Both sets of Grandparents, Aunt Nikki and Great Aunt Jan and Uncle Bill traveled to Charlotte.  He also had friends visit from Chicago and Indianapolis- Erin McMahon and Maggie Michaelis.  His first play date was with Julia Culp; and we also hosted Jack Brown for a play date.  A busy social calendar indeed!

Diet: You could set your watch that he wakes up every 2-3 hours to nurse... the boy loves to eat.

Clothes: James Robert is already growing out of his newborn clothes.  Many of his onsies are very tight so we have graduated to 0-3 sizes and some 3 month sizes! Our favorite outfit is this adorable smocked gown that he wore for Easter!

Baby Gear Love: James Robert loves his swing and bouncy seat, both have been invaluable for the first month.  Other favorites have been his magnolia baby swaddle blanket and newfound love for his pacifier.

Crying: The boy has a set of lungs on him!  He came out of the womb kicking and screaming and he likes to exercise that daily.  He usually just fusses when he is woken up or when he is hungry, but in general is a very happy baby.

Likes: Milk, milk and milk.  Oh, and sometimes taking a walk.

Milestones: This month was full of milestones as everything was a first.  Losing his umbilical cord, taking his first bath and first walks were among the most memorable.  He also celebrated his first St. Patty's day and first Easter.
