The Lion at 1 Month

Can you believe it?  Our little man is already a month old!!!  And...he looks about 3 months old, but that's just the chunk on him.  This is why you missed getting a 4 week post on Monday, because now?  We are up to using the big "M" word.

Yep, my little chunkster is already sitting up that well.  I can't even believe it!  Of course, having a wide base of support helps.  ;)  Unfortunately, I can't tell you how much he weighs, as we don't go to the doctor until next week, but I can tell you that he has a big ole frog-belly.  

Favorite Things

He really likes to watch the fan, the stripes on his walls, trees, and look at framed pictures on the walls.  He loves to be sang to, and his favorite songs are currently Stormy Weather, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, and Old McDonald.  I need to learn more lyrics to songs.  If you're not singing, he'd prefer you to still keep talking and is starting to smile when people converse with him.  Horrifyingly, his biggest smile occurred when Chris's boss told him that he'd go look for some Brandy for him.  His favorite positions are flung over the top of your shoulder, being patted rapidly, and fairly hard, or asleep on Mom's chest.  


We still don't really have a "routine" per se, but he sleeps well!  He goes down around 9, wakes up around 6, and only wakes to be fed once or twice around 2:30 (always) and 4 (usually).  I REALLY appreciate this.  During the day, he's starting to be awake more.  He's most likely to be pleasant at 8:30 am, most likely to be asleep at noon, and most likely to be screaming at about 6 pm.  Other than that?  Can't tell ya.      


Yep, no weight to report, but he's in size 1 diapers, and starting to grow OUT of some of his 0-3 month clothes.  For example, this onesie in the photos.  Perhaps he's enjoying his food a little too much?  NO socks fit him, except a few toddler ones we have.  I need to go on a search for some bigger ones.  (See picture.  They're halfway down his arch.  Bah.)

The only way he wants to sleep during the day anymore.

Grandma found a new game he loves.  Watch the video for evidence of why he's his father's son.


  1. He is TOO precious!!!! And such a big healthy looking boy. Love it!

    Also - what is up with babies and fans? It's crazy how mesmerizing they are to them.

  2. O M G Where did the month go?! I love the picture of him on your chest. He is SO CUTE KATY! SOOOO CUTE! And I can't believe how well he is sitting up! I think Peanut was like 3 months by the time she was sitting like that. happy 1 month little buddy!!!!

  3. He's so CUTE!!! Don't feel too bad about your musical repetoire - I was singing the meow mix song to my kid when he was a baby! Only instead of MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW it was BUB-BA BUB-BA!
