One Month Old

We survived our first month as a family of five! Hooray! Everett is enjoying more awake and alert time. He is usually awake in the morning and evening for quite some time. He is very observant, just content to look around. Once in a while he gives a small smile. Everett is Mr Houdini, I finally had to use a Halo Sleep Sack, which mostly keeps him swaddled. He sleeps well at night, going to bed around 10:30 and waking up around 3:30 for a quiet nursing then 7:30. Amelia still keeps me up more than my newborn. I noticed today he is able to keep his hands near his mouth to suck on. His binky is spit out once his hands are nearby. I am guessing that he weighs about 11 pounds already and is 22.5 inches long. I will verify that tomorrow. We lovers our little snuggle buddy!

**update: Everett weighs about 10.5 lbs and is 21.5 inches long (06/28/2011)

He is the cutest little monkey! Hard to believe it's been a whole month already. You are doing so great! Amelia can come and whine with Zane anytime. He has been working on those skills a lot lately too. Must be the age.

I love the new table! That stinks that it's too big for the space. Hope they have a similar one a little smaller for you.

A month ALREADY?!?! Wowzers, time has flown by and you have handled it all beautifully (from my perspective).
What's a halo sleep sack? I didn't bother to see if there was a link (didn't think about it til now). Not that I need one, just wonderin'.
