Colton 1 Month

Size: At his 2 week check up he weighed 9 lbs. 0 oz. (68%, back to his birth weight), and 22.25 in (99%), He is mostly out of newborn clothes and wears 0-3 months and size 1 diaper.

Sleep: He sleeps a lot throughout the day. His longest stretches of wake time are usually in the morning and after dinner time. He sleeps great in the car or stroller or bjorn. Nights are unpredictable. He goes down for the night around 9 or later. Then he goes anywhere from a 2 hr stretch to a 6 hour stretch between feedings. Most nights he usually eats twice - maybe 1 and 4 am or something similar. He is pretty good about going back to sleep but sometimes drops his paci several times or starts up with the loud grunting. He hardly cries at night so I am thankful for that!

Eat: He eats every 2-4 hours during the day. We have tried giving him a bottle several times and he has taken it just fine. YAY!!! Not that we will bottle feed him often, but it does allow me to be away from him for several hours or for Greg and I to go on a date, etc.

Likes/Dislikes: Colton loves being in the bjorn, being held, baths, and seems to enjoy laying on his play mat (for short periods of time). He dislikes when a certain sister tries sitting on him or pats/bangs on his head.

Skills: We try to give him a few minutes of tummy time each day but he doesn't exactly love it. Other than that his best skill is looking cute.

I am loving having a little boy and loving little boy clothes. This guy melts my heart.
