Maddox, you were One Month Old on August 21, 2010. You have brought so much joy to our lives, and we thank God for you everyday. I am sorry I am 2 1/2 weeks late posting this even though it was written on time, but we moved back home when you were a month old and are just now getting Internet! I feel as if I have been disconnected from the world! Ha!
You are such a good baby. You wake up every 3-4 hours to eat unless you have a wet diaper, and then you must be changed immediately, and you will go right back to sleep. You do not like a wet diaper! You are eating 4 oz. at a time and still spitting up some, but your doctor says it is nothing to worry about. There has been numerous times where I have had to change clothes during the middle of the night after burping you. Your doctor says we just have a laundry problem!
You also have baby acne which I cannot stand. I wish I could pop those little bumps on your face. We got your newborn pics taken on 8.9.10 you were 2 1/2 weeks old, and you only had 2 bumps on your face that day. I was so worried that your pictures would not turn out good, but they cleared up the day we had them done and came back the next. Oh, and your umbilical cord thingy fell off the same day as your pictures but later that night. I am so glad it is gone, because I hated changing your diaper because I just knew I would pull it off since it was hanging by a thread. We have to have everything ready in advance to change your diaper. We line up the diaper, wipes and powder/cream and can change your diaper in like 10 seconds! After getting sprinkled on 20 times, we have finally got it down pat!
At your last doctor’s visit (8-11-10) you weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz…you are a healthy baby! You have also grown 1/2 an inch! You wear 0-3 months clothing in Carter’s and Gerber, but for some reason, you are just now fitting into the newborn Circo brand (Target). You are in size 1 diapers. We had a few “blow outs” in your newborn diapers and decided it was time to move up! Here are a few pics of your first month! 1 Week
1 Month Old!
