One Month. The Wes Edition.

If you care to read about Andrew at one month you may do so here. I can imagine that the only one to click that link will be my mama. It made me almost cry because I saw that at this point Andrew was sleeping from 9pm to 2 or 3 in the morning. Then back to sleep until 6. Wes gets up every 3 hours like clockwork. Waaaaaa!!

Little Wes, I love you even though you never let me sleep! How could I not?
Ignore that little blue line you can see through his onesie. I know I needed to change his diaper. I may not have.
For comparison, here is your brother at one month:
You look so much alike!
So anyways, while you are not anywhere near as good of a sleeper as your brother, you are on a pretty predictable schedule, which I adore. I know that at 6, 9, 12 (you get the picture) you are going to want to eat. Then you'll have about 1/2 hour to an hour of awake time. Then you'll sleep until you're ready to eat again. (This is all for the most part). I love that predictability, so thank you! It also means I can coordinate nap time with your brother.

You, also like your brother, love to eat. I thought it was excessive that you were eating 4 ounces every 3 hours, but just read that Andrew did as well.
At 2 weeks you weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces and were just over 21 inches long. (Andrew was 7 pounds 5 ounces and 20.5 inches)
You, for the most part, have grown out of newborn clothes and are now wearing 0-3 months.

You've already been on your first big road trip.. to Ohio to visit family. You handled it like a champ and I know everyone loved meeting you! Mama enjoyed all of the extra hands :)

You gave me your first smiles last week (just before turning 4 weeks).
You're lifting your head so well.

You adore your brother more than anyone else, I think. You always turn towards his voice and you can easily be calmed down when he comes over and holds your hand and says, "it's okay baby Wes". I love the relationship the two of you already have!

For the most part, you are such a content baby. You have your moments, or days, but you seem to be an "easy" baby just like your brother was.

You've completed us sweet baby! I'm so glad that you are in our lives!

What a sweet face! And yeah, Trey's genes are definitely the dominant ones. Aren't you lucky to be surrounded by good-looking fellas :)

I LOVE that pic of Andrew! Always did. "I'm not so sure about this guy..." hahaha!
