Clark: Month One



I knew it would happen, but it still managed to sneak up on me. Clark's first month has FLOWN by! Now that we have a month under our belt we are settling into a routine as a family of four and we are all getting to know each other better every day. I know even more this time around how quickly babies grow up so I am desperately trying to savor every moment, even when that moment happens to be at 2 in the morning. He is a serious little guy and when he wants something he is sure to let us know until he gets it! It's fun comparing him to what Sawyer was like and seeing how even at a month old they already have such distinct personalities. I love my boys something fierce and watching them interact is one of my greatest joys. I am so, so thankful that God chose me to be their mommy! Here's is what Clark has been up to this month...

-had already gained 2 pounds and 1/4 inch by his check up at 19 days old
-very gassy!
-slept in his rock-n-play in our bedroom until 4-26 when he moved to his crib
-has a little bit of baby acne
-has his mommy's blue eyes (at least for now)
-moved up to size 1 diapers at about a week and a half old
-wakes up about every 3 hours at night to nurse
-hiccups a lot
-likes to look at the bears on the mobile on his swing
-hates riding in the car
-noisy sleeper
-wore newborn clothes most of his first month, but now wears 0-3 month clothes
-would eat all day long if I'd let him!
