1 Month Old!

Things I love about Arland at 1 month old:

The “quivering chin” When you cry you scrunch up your chin and poke your bottom lip out, it’s adorable! This really accentuates the dimple in your chin.

When I change your diaper or put you in the tub (which you really like! Your face is priceless when we put your body in the water, you don’t really know what to think, staring with a serious face is all you do), at the last second when you feel insecure, you spread your arms and legs out with your hands and feet stiff as a board and scream.(Your daddy then laughs at you because he thinks its so funny)

At night when I put you to bed I give you a little bit of formula to “top you off” and in the middle of the night when you wake up to have me feed you, you cry only for a moment until you realize that it is mommy holding you and then you instantly become quiet.

You also love to snuggle! Especially in mommy and daddy’s bed. You kick dad to the end of the bed and completely take over his side. It’s so funny to watch because I know that you are totally content in that spot.

I love how curious you are about light and bright colors you look as though you see something that nobody else does.

You do like your swing, but not for very long. Its better when mommy or daddy is holding you and we get to snuggle!

You sleep the longest from 5-9 am with the shortest being 1-3 am. Your daddy has to wake up at 3am because you make me the most tired at that time! (Daddy’s are great for things like that)

You get these hiccups that drive you absolutely crazy! They are so intense that you start to cry after a while!

Every time we burp you, you have these really strong legs that push your entire body up and away! You can now lift your head!

Tub time with your hand stretched out, we are waiting to hear a scream!

I love this little face! He literally is my pride and joy and I am so glad that I get to be home with him at this time. I LOVE being a mommy and this little guy makes it so easy! How could you not love this face!

Arland and his great grandma and grandpa

When Arland came home from the hospital he had jaundice pretty bad and he had to be under the lights (like a tanning bed). This is his cute face mask that he had to wear while he was under the lights.

During the night one of us had to be up with him at all times. We couldn't leave him under the lights by him self so you can see the exhaustion in Heaths face as he is looking at our little mister.

Our little man the day that we left the hospital!
I LOVE those chubby cheeks!
