One Month

He weighs 11.5 pounds and his arms, legs and hands are really filling out

He's peed through his clothes onto my shirts almost every other day

Our nights are very sleepless and I think I'm about to just sleep with him in the bed next to us without a co-sleeper, last resort

He's starting to smile and tracks us when we talk or come into the room

When he's nursing he balls his hands up and puts them under his chin or they fly up and his arms just lay there straightened out

We swaddle him for sleep time and he's so comfortable and trusting when we hold him on his side like a little burrito baby

Sometimes he sucks so much breastmilk that he coos and his eyes roll back in his head

He loves tummy time, especially when laying on us. He lifts his head and back up really high and did it right out of the womb. His eyes get so wide, he purses his lips and he stretches out his neck, I think he looks like a little turtle. 

Even though our nights are frustrating and hard, I love love love seeing him, holding him and just being around him in the morning

I am so thankful that I have maternity leave to be at home and take care of him without the stress of work.

I still can't quite believe it all happened, that he's real and is ours, and at the same time mothering him feels so simple and natural. 

My favorite thing is to hold him and cuddle him. I would do it all day.
