Easton - 1 Month

Look who's already a month old!!  I can't believe how fast time flies!

I loved having Abbi's monthly pictures with the onesie, so of course, I had to do them with Easton as well!!

At one month, Easton:

*Is such a good baby.  Where Abbi needed to be held constantly, Easton is usually content to lay in the bouncer, swing, or even on the ground.
*Is a big eater!  He was 8 lbs. 6 oz. at birth, 9 pounds at his 2 week appointment, and around 11 pounds at a month (according to our at home scale)!!

*Is on a great 3 hour schedule.
*Is a great sleeper!  In fact, he sleeps more than any other baby I have known!
*Sleeps 4 to 5 hours the first stretch at night.  Mommy loves that!

*Has the cutest little half smile.  He'll do it often when he is sleeping - I think he has good dreams. :)
*Is a grunter.  He is seriously a noisy baby.  He'll grunt when he's asleep, he'll grunt when he's awake, he'll grunt when he's eating.

*Is a very even tempered baby.  The only times he gets upset is when he is naked, when he is hungry, or for about an hour around 7pm at night.  But besides that, he rarely cries!
*Loves to sit upright.  He's much happier siting upright than laying down when he is awake.
*Already is super strong.  He's already got great neck control and strength, and loves to stand on his little legs.

*Can sleep through anything. In fact, the noisier it is, the better he sleeps - I think!  Turn on the vacuum, the mixer, the dishwasher - he'll sleep through it all!
*Makes the funniest shapes with his mouth.  My favorite is when he forms a little 'o'.  I'm guessing it has something to do with wanting to eat, but he does it a lot and I think it's super cute!

*Has eyes that are turning bluer and bluer every day.  I really think he's going to take after his daddy!
*Will only put his head to the side when he is laying down (as you can tell by the pictures).  I don't know why, but he does not like to look straight up!

We sure do love this little guy and are so grateful that he is here with us!!  I'm looking forward to what the next days and months bring!

Oh my goodness I just want to come steal him from you. I'm such a horrible aunt--I've barely been able to hold him. Maybe because when I do get to see you he's sleeping! I just wanna hop in my car right now and come for a visit. Will you come be my neighbor?

That little half-smile is a killer. I can't believe he's a month old already. And I just can't get over how cute he is!
