I swear, life goes faster with two kids around. Little man turned one month old a couple of days ago.
I've been going to a breastfeeding support group about once a week, so fortunately I know what his weight is. On his one month birthday, he weighed 9 pounds 2 ounces. (His birth weight was 8lb 8oz). This weight is huge for me! It took his sister about a month to regain her birth weight, and then she gained very slowly. I wish I had known about the breastfeeding group with her because I truly think it was her latch that was affecting her milk transfer, which was affecting her weight gain. I'm blessed to be able to breastfeed my children.
Overall, his demeanor has been decent. He was very fussy the first week and a half, then I saw blood in his poop, so I cut out dairy. Since cutting out dairy, his demeanor has improved. However, it's hard to say if it was time or dairy that improved things since he only had the blood in the stool once. Joe and I went out to lunch today, so I decided today was the day I do a dairy challenge and ate cheese. We'll see how it goes. Even if it goes ok, I think I'll try to stick with limiting dairy but not stress about the "hidden dairy." Who am I kidding? I'm craving ice cream.
His favorite thing to do is eat! I mean, what else does a one month old do? Eat, sleep, poop.
He's straddling sizes in clothes, I'm moving mostly to the 3 month clothing now. He's definitely too long for the one piece newborn clothes.
For now, his eyes are still blue. I don't think they'll stay blue just because they're a different shade than what his sister's eyes were, plus statistically we shouldn't have two blue-eyed kids.
Baby sister is adjusting very well! The past week she acquired a cold and wanted to cuddle more and did regress to wanting to be carried more, but I think this will pass once she starts feeling better.
I want to try to start working out again. Last week I did a 15 minute post-natal workout. I think it's a good way to ease back in. It is going to be even harder now to find time with the two kids though. One day at a time. Plus I can't wait until it gets warmer!
