One Month Old



Can you believe a month is gone already? I still feel like we are in the month of August! Look at our sweet little boy...what a precious little guy he is to us. In one month he's gained almost 2 pounds and grew 2 inches. He is having longer periods of alertness. His schedule is pretty predictable: wake up at 7:20, feed, nap at 8:30 to 10:30, feed, awake for an hour, nap until 1:30, feed, awake for 90 minutes, nap until 4:30, feed, awake, cat nap here an there until 7:30, feed, he's pretty alert until about 9:30, bed, feed at 10:30 pm. Thursday and Friday nights he slept through the night, waking up at 7:00. I am sooo blessed!! Phillip is really trying to smile. In the top picture you can see his hands are blurry from trying to body smile. He even makes little content cooing sounds that delights me to no end. I wish you could smell him...new babies smell so divine. I wish you could kiss his downy cheeks and smooth his velvety hair. Amelia's favorite thing is to smooth her hand over his head.

Yesterday we were driving in the car. Amelia noticed a red coca-cola truck on the road side. She piped up from the back seat, "Mom it's a scabies truck, umm, scabelly truck...it so pretty...I love red!" Scabies/scabelly is how she says spaghetti. Next we saw a white truck to which she said, "Mom it's a snow truck, its so cold and cool." I can't tell you how tickled we are to watch her little imagination blossom. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Tomorrow I will post pictures and text about our PAINTING PARTY!! It was fun and successful....
