One Month Old

Our little guy is ONE month old (plus a few days :-)
I can't believe Matthew is one month old already. I guess time flies when you're having fun (and very sleep deprived!) Here are some fun facts about Matthew at 1 month old:
He gained another whole pound and a half in just two weeks and now weighs: 9 pounds, 6 ounces (25%)
He is 20 1/2 inches long (25%)
His head circumference is 14 1/4 inches (25%)
Still quite a tiny guy although he's growing like a weed!
Matthew is a very content, happy baby EXCEPT during and after eating..then he screams his tiny head off (we think he has reflux and are trying some medicine and praying it works QUICKLY)
He's on a pretty good schedule and eats about every 2 1/2-3 hours during the day and 3 1/2 hours at night, sometimes with a 4 hour stretch mixed in...we're SO ready for some longer stretches at night!!
Matthew finally loves his swing (yay) and still likes his bouncy seat and car seat/riding in the car
Favorite place to sleep: in our arms!
He's a BIG cuddler
Loves being swaddled and his paci
Has outgrown most of his newborn clothes and diapers :-(
Now wears size 1 diapers and 0-3 month size clothes for the most part
Loves to stare at his big sister (who, BTW, adores him and kisses him about 100x/day)
Hasn't smiled yet and is just starting to make better eye contact...can't wait for that first big smile
Matthew is growing/changing so fast! We're excited to see what this next month brings. Most of all, we can't wait to spend his FIRST Christmas with him. Even though he has no idea what's going on, it's very special for us!
