One month

That's right folks, it's already been a month. When it's your own, it seems to go much faster. I can't believe my little baby is growing so fast. He is actually starting to fill out his 0-3 months clothing now. He's been able to wear pretty much all of his clothes, whereas Cameron at a whopping 8lbs 14oz had some clothes he never wore. Cameron came home in a newborn outfit that was tight on him.

But this post is about Ethan, so let's stick to the topic. Let's see...

Major Accomplishments: Last night he slept for 5 hours straight. However, it was in my arms. Not such a good sleeper when it comes around to bedtime. But we'll give him that. Right before he slept for five hours, he decided to be awake for 5 1/2 hours! I guess we'll call that an accomplishment too. Since he was 2 days old, he's been trying to lift his head, and now at a month old, he does pretty well. He still looks like one of those bobble head dolls though.

Things we'd like him to work on (because this is his report card after all): Lay down for a nap. We really don't care where, but anywhere that doesn't require our arms and swinging him. We think maybe he's got some gassy/colic problems; thus the reason for all of his fussiness and refusal to sleep laying down.

I think we'll give him an A+ for just being so darn cute and cuddly. We love him and are STILL so happy he's here. We give him bonus points for future time he will spend playing and fighting with Cameron.

And of course, if you even got this far... some pictures!

Ahhh, the not-sleeping unless they're in your arms is so familiar! Madeline definitely has tummy issues, and it's made things very exciting. She wasn't happy awake unless you held her, either. She's starting to do better; she can sit in her bouncer for a while, now, and she can sleep next to me on our bed instead of having to be in our arms. And she doesn't have to have a crying jag before she'll go to sleep for the night anymore, either.

Ethan is so adorable! So are the rest of you. :-) I love all these pictures of Cameron in his Superman suit!
