One Month

Ian is one month old!  He had a doctor's appointment today and weighed 10 pounds.  He sure loves to eat!

Here are some pictures that I took on his one month birthday.  So cute!

Here is some evidence of how cooperative he was for most of the day.....three different times throughout the day.  All I wanted was a picture of him at one month with his eyes open.  He didn't think that was such a great idea.

Four Weeks, Lots of Faces

Ian is growing too fast!  He still spends a lot of time sleeping, and is doing great sleeping in his bassinet at night.  However,  he now makes so much noise while sleeping, grunting, groaning, and humming, that I am thinking of moving him Greg's office space instead of having him sleep next to our bed.

He has much longer periods when he is awake and when he is awake, he is so much more alert.  He makes all kinds of faces now.

He almost always has his hands by his face.  That stated in utero, so I am not really surprised.

Ian loves to look at his animal pictures on the wall above his changing table.  I think he mostly looks at the picture of Gauge because of the contrast.

He is almost always hungry.  I bet you can't tell by his chubby cheeks and double chin.

He is really beginning to enjoy floor time and really likes his mirror.  He isn't a huge fan of being on his stomach, but he tolerates it for a while.

Three Weeks

Ian is three weeks old and is growing like crazy!  It seems like he changes every day.  His eyes are quite blue and his hair can't seem to make a decision at this point.  Some days it looks brown and straight, other days it looks blond or red and has a little curl on the top.  

He loves to eat and is really fighting anything longer than a two hour feeding schedule during the day.  Luckily, he is sleeping for four hour stretches at night.  He prefers to sleep in the Mamaroo, aka the "spaceship" but is beginning to tolerate naps in his crib or bassinet for longer stretches.

Ian was quite cranky and awake most of the day during our little heat wave.  The only thing he enjoyed about the 90 degree weather was not having to wear clothes for 3 days.

Overall, he is awake a lot more often.  We try to get tummy time and reading in while he is alert.  

He is really a good baby.  He goes to the barn almost every day and has been to the university to have lunch with Daddy. He even hung out at Pony Club for the day last weekend.
