Celebrating One Month

Today, Baby Scout, you are one month old.
We had a little one month celebration for you!

This was your one month celebration cake.

Sleeping Patterns: Baby Scout, your sleeping patterns are so inconsistent. You usually like to sleep about one hour at a time during the day and two hours at a time at night. Last night, you sleep from 10 p.m. - 6 a.m. with only one feeding! Woohoo! The night before, you were still up at 6 a.m. after only a short sleep from about 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m..

What You Like To Do: Baby Scout, you love to love to lay on your changing table in your room. You seem to like the feel of the cover. While you are laying on your changing table, you like to look at the black and white things. You also love to find ceiling fans. You find them no matter what room you are in. You love to snuggle. Aunt Shannon and Daddy help you with this most of the time. Anytime mommy tries it, you think it is time to eat. This week, you have decided you like your bath. Aunt Shannon fills the sink closer to the top so more of you is covered, and you like to splash. You have also discovered your tongue. You like to stick it out!

New Things You Have Done this Week: Baby Scout, you had your first emergency room visit this week. You also have had to take your first medicine with a dropper. You absolutely HATE it! Everyone dreads the four times a day we have to give your medicine to you, and we have to do it for another two days! You wore 0 - 3 months pajamas for the first time this week. It won't be long until that is all you wear. You are growing so fast. You went to your first farm (Aunt Peggy's house) this week and your first summer bash. You did a good job and were very sweet!

Here are you and Makayla opening your one month presents.

Eating Patterns:
Baby Scout, you eat ten to twelve times a day. You nurse every hour and a half to two hours for about twenty minutes. Mommy loves this time with you, but it wears her out! This week, you have really started to spit up so much. I don't know what is causing you to do this, but I hope it improves. I think it is causing you to be hungry more. We are going to try nursing you for a shorter amount of time to see if this helps.

Aunt Shannon, Uncle Randy and Makayla got you "My Pal Scout".
He is super cute! He sings a song with your name (and his name).

Dislikes: Baby Scout, you hate being cold. This includes having your diaper changed, the end of bathtime, and changing clothes. You don't mind having a poopy diaper. We tried to lay you in your Pack and Play, and you hated it. I don't think you like being flat. You hate taking your medicine. It is so hard for you to get it down.

Janny and Granpappy got you this beautiful gold bracelet.
It will match your gold ring.

Diaper Size: Scout, you wear a Newborn size diaper.

Clothes Size: Scout, you wear Newborn size clothes, but I pulled out a few of your 0 - 3 clothes and your Father's Day shirt was a 0 - 3 (but a little big). Your newborn onesies are packed away, and you now wear 0 - 3 onesies. Yesterday, I packed up your newborn pajamas (you are too long for them) and put 0 - 3 pajamas in your baskets.

Nana got you this Pooh toy. You love Pooh!

Eye Color: Scout, right now, your eyes are blue.

You are one month old!
We can't believe it.
You are growing and changing way too fast.
We love you!
