Leo is already one month old! I still think about that day (my BIRTHDAY!) a month ago now and how crazy it was (read birth story here)! Even more crazy, is how the heck he is already one month old! I knew the newborn thing would go by fast, but WHEW, this was reeeaaaaal fast.
Weighing in at 11 lbs 6 ounces (85th percentile) and 22.5 inches (75th percentile), he’s been gaining weight like a sumo wrestler. Up from 8 lbs 3 oz and 20 inches at birth, I’d say he’s doing purty good. This boy thing is legit, people told me he’d be an eater! YUP. And he’s so strong! Holding his head up pretty well already.
He’s been the sweetest baby. He absolutely LOVES to be held and cuddled. The Solly Wrap has come in quite handy when he cries when I let him down. And it helps that we have had family in town who are just dying to get their hands on him :) He doesn’t mind.
What I love most lately is how awake he is! After the initial newborn thing and sleep sleep sleep, he’s awake more and more and I get to gaze in his pretty bluish gray eyes. He’s so fun to look at when they make eye contact with you! My face is like all up in there and centimeters away from him so he can see me and I can give him a million kisses. SMOOCH Leo all day.
