~ 1 Month ~

Wow! I can't believe I just typed that.. has it really been exactly a month since I've given birth to this beautiful boy?? All of you mommies were right, time does fly!

My little Drew baby:

As of your two week well-baby appointment you were 7lbs 6oz and 20.5 inches long. We don't go back until you are two months old though.. so who knows at this point
You measured in the 50th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference.. just perfect!
You are wearing newborn clothing, but they don't fit perfectly. They fit your little body just right, but most things are too short for your long legs. We joke a lot that you're wearing carpis instead of pants!
You really enjoy eating.. imagine that! You're usually eating about 4 ounces now.. around every 2-3 hours during the day.
You're also a great sleeper, which means you don't eat much during the night. For the past week, you've been going down around 9 at night and not waking up until between 2 and 3. Then you gets up again between 6 and 7 and goes down one more time, usually until 9.
You're not really cooing too much yet, but I think your smiles are starting to mean a little more than gas. You sometimes smiles when I kiss all over your cheeks or rub your cheeks or chin lightly.
You love looking at the lights... fascinates you!
You do not like to be put down.. you love your mama! I feel okay with this for now because I've read that you can't be spoiled at this age. You'll go in your swing for a bit, but only for 10-15 minutes tops.. then you're wanting back in my arms! You're lucky I love you so much :)
You don't like tummy time too much, but your neck is so strong as it is. From the time you've come home, you've been able to pick your head up from off of my chest.. now you'll even pick your head up and look at me in the face. It's the cutest thing!

Andrew, you are the best thing that could have happened to your daddy and I. We are so thankful to have you in our lives.. I can't even begin to explain to you how blessed we feel to have you! We love you more than you can imagine! I look at you and try to picture what your life will be like. There are so many possibilities, I just pray that you are always happy with the decisions you make and that you know we are always your number one fans!

I randomly came across your blog on blogspot (using the next blog scroll at the top) and realized that we had babies one day apart (my little guy was born on Aug 29th) and with the same name...Andrew! How funny?! Your little guy is adorable and glad to see he is doing well!
