Wyatt: One Month

He's coming alive, that's for sure! After weeks of mostly eating, sleeping (constantly, anywhere and everywhere), and burping, he is now staying awake for longer intervals (about an hour) and needing some help to go to sleep. He still sleeps primarily in the bouncy seat during the day but seems to want it to be darker. Burps and gas are becoming easier for him to cope with, but sometimes still get stuck. He slept in his crib for a nap for the first time--success! He's still sleeping between us in our bed with the sleep positioner. He's started waking at 6:30am (ish), no matter when his last feeding was and wants to be up for a bit. I don't love this, but thankfully Brad has been getting up with him and letting me rest, which I'm pretty sure is crucial for my survival.

His adorable hair has started to fall out and now he's rocking the old man 'do. He never really fit into newborn sizes, and even some 0-3m clothes don't work because of his big cloth diaper butt. He doesn't love to get dressed/undressed, but he seems to love the bath and just lying on his changing mat. He spits a lot. He hoots, just like his sister did. He guzzles milk. In fact, for a week or so I had to pull him off to burp him every couple of minutes because he was getting so much milk, so quickly. He seems to be handling it much better now. He eats every 2-3 hours.

He is such a sweet soul. He is changing and growing so fast. It's hard to believe he has only been here for one month. And oh we love him so.
