One Month Old Already?!

One month old today


I can't believe how quickly one month has gone by!

Caleb is doing great and for my lack of posting, I'm still catching up on sleep. (I don't remember being this tired at one month with Elijah though Ethan was not in school yet and we were living in a small apartment, so there was a lot less to clean, etc.) All else is well though. Tomorrow is Caleb's one month checkup and they will draw blood again to check his bilirubin and CBC panel.

I can't imagine there will need to be any intervention at this point, but they have to follow up on him. I am guessing he weighs 10 lbs. already based on weighing him on our bathroom scale.

He has now has a full set of eyelashes (so neat to see them growing longer each day) and a receding hairline. His head started peeling the other day and with that, his hair started thinning on top. I don't remember this happening with the other boys, but I'm sure it's not a concern.

We're still waiting for an intentional smile and the chance to see his double dimples in action. For the most part, I'd say he's a happy baby, though like most babies, he prefers to be held over being set down and we're usually happy to oblige. He is co-sleeping with us like our other boys did, but we have a small pack and play he can sleep in when I need him too. He has such big eyes and I love seeing him stare up at me. He is such a blessing and I'm trying to memorize every detail of his baby-ness.
