Owen – 1 Month

My Owen Boy!
How the heck are you one month already?! Time FLEW!

I feel like I gave birth to you just yesterday! My little guy. ♥

You have made our family complete, I am so excited to have a son. You are already 100% Mommy’s Boy and I hope it stays that way forever! Even when you are married, haha.

You are a CHAMP at breastfeeding! You have gained so much weight so fast, every time you have a check up at the doctors he gives Mommy a high five because you are growing so much!

You tend to spit up a lot. I don’t know if it’s because you are over eating, like you drink too much too fast, but since you are gaining weight I guess it’s not a concern, the only thing that stinks is that I always smell like old milk, and I have to do laundry almost every day to catch up to your mess!

Your belly button stub fell off on your 13th day and right away it looked perfect! No problems, no infections. Since it fell out you started to get baths! Mommy thought that you were going to hate getting baths because you FLIP OUT when you get cold, but you actually like them!

You are such a calm little guy for the most part. Yes, sometimes you cry and Mommy can’t figure out what’s wrong, but hey, you’re a baby! You’re allowed to do that lol!

You like being on your belly the best, and you have a love/hate relationship with being swaddled.

You alternate sleeping in your bassinet and sleeping with Mommy, depending on your mood or the night, or if Mommy just wants some extra cuddles.. Not sorry! Haha.

You don’t care when your sister pokes you on the face or steals your pacifier, I think you know that she loves you, and I’m sure you are already plotting your revenge for when you get bigger haha!

You have been using your legs to push yourself up off of things and you do tummy time on Mommy’s tummy. You also like skin to skin with me.

I can’t wait to see what kind of personality you are going to have as time goes by. I am so happy to be your Mommy!

I love you sooooo much my cuddle bug!
– Mommy

Weight: 9.4 lbs
Height: 21 in
Eye Color: Grayish? I can’t really tell yet for some reason.
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Diaper Size: Size NB for now.
Clothes Size: NB for now but footie PJs are already getting tight!
Sleep: You would sleep all night if I let you! But since you are still too little, Mommy wakes you up to feed you. You usually eat every 3 hours, but sometimes at night I let you sleep for 4 or 5 hours depending on if you wake up or I wake up.
Eating: Like I mentioned above you usually eat every 3 hours, with the exception of some nights, where you go 4 or 5(max) hours depending on if you wake up or I wake up.
Likes: You like Mommy’s Milk, being outside. You love to be held and you like your pacifier, but you get really mad when it falls out of your mouth which is allll the time so we have to constantly keep putting it back in your mouth – just like your big sister!
Dislikes: You don’t like being cold, and for the most part you don’t like diaper changes.
Milestones: You are getting better at holding your head up. 🙂
Firsts: First bath, first (of many) photoshoot, and the usual stuff like first doctor’s visit, first car ride.. Not a lot of firsts for a newborn huh?
Personality: You are calm, and peaceful and cute!

Owen’s Monthly Watercolor onesie is from Chicly Growing and can be purchased here.
It’s a whole 12 Month set. I like that they’re ironed on, and not stickers, so as she gets older he can’t rip them out! Love it!!!
