One Month!

Monday, January 19, 2009
After some thought on whether the one month birthday fell 4 weeks from the actual birth (on a Friday) or the same date as the birth a month later (the 19th), we've decided to do our counting from the date. So, yesterday Lincoln was one month old! It went so fast! Lincoln has changed a lot in just a month: he can now hold his head up for 5-10 seconds and turn it from side to side when laying on his tummy. He has slept up to 5 hours straight (one time only) during the night. More often he sleeps for 2-3 hours at a time. He loves to be in his sling or Beco carrier. He smiles a lot in his sleep and even laughs (silently) sometimes. He is beginning to smile when awake, which is fun! He has made the switch to cloth diapers during the daytime. He has outgrown his first outfit! He loves to go outside. He does not like it when mommy eats citrus fruit or juice. He loves to have visitors. He likes to be in the water up to his shoulders, but does not like a sponge bath. He has awesome dance moves! He likes to swing. He appears to be a fan of U2. He has discovered his hands and we have actually seen him stare at his hand and try and aim it towards his mouth (usually missing and hitting the cheek or nose...quite hilarious). He has, on one occasion, located his thumb and managed to suck on it for about 2 seconds. He will turn towards sounds. He still does not like his bassinet. He tends to be fussy anytime between 10:00 pm and 12:00 am (unless it was last night, and then fussiness lasted from 9:00 pm until 3:00 am. Let's hope that was a one time thing!). He has a receding hairline. He is the cutest baby I have ever seen and I am so amazed that we have him in our lives! And now, some pictures from this month:Lincoln wearing the baby leg warmers I made him. A bit big now, but he'll grow into them!

  2. Can he get any cuter?!? I miss him and can't wait to see him again. By the way, do you think it's a good idea to not buckle him up when you drive over 60 miles an hour? ;
