myles oliver : monthbymonth

My little man is already a month old.  Sometimes it seems like time is flying, and others, it is creeping by.  I am anxious for the more interactive time, but hate to see the snuggly little boy disappear.

Myles, you have moved into size 1 diapers this week, as well as some of your bigger clothes (0-3mo and a few 3 month sizes).  You can still squeeze into some newborn things but not for much longer. 

You mostly only cry when you are hungry (or we accidentally bop you on the head).  You fall asleep almost immediately when you are in the car or in your stroller.  For the most part you let us sleep for 2-4 hours at a time at night and have more "good" nights than "bad" ones.. (good means you go to sleep right after you are done nursing instead of making us bounce you and snuggle you for 2 hours).  Night time is the only time mommy gets frustrated with you because other than lack of sleep on "bad" nights, you are so laid back.  

You love your bath time right now and I hope that never ends.  I love to comb your hair the "wrong" way after your bath so that it curls into a weird little mohawk of sorts.  

We have taken you to church a couple of times so far and you mostly sleep through it as long we we keep you moving.  

You started playing with your zebra this week, hitting the rings and rattle that hang from his feet.

My favorite moments with you are when you grab my shirt while you are nursing with one hand, and stroke my side with the other.  

Your daddy loves when you fall asleep on him and enjoys having "gym" time with you.  Daddy is your own personal gym.  You do tummy time on his chest (you hold your head up so well!  Just not very good at keeping it straight!), and he holds you under your arms to try to get you to push on him with your legs.  

You have had a few bottles now and took to them immediately!  Thank goodness!  That has been really helpful with daddy watching you while I run errands or when your Granny kept you so we could have a couple of dates during her visit!

It is still so surreal that we are parents.  

We love you little man.
