Keaton at One Month

Do you see me blogging about Keaton turning one month old the day after happens? BAM! Truth be told, the only reason I was timely at all was because I was excited to take these pictures. We'll see how many more times this happens close to the 22nd...

I think this calendar thing may continue to adapt as we move along... I'm already wishing I'd written his little stats from his last check up on the calendar.  But for record keeping's sake: at 3 weeks and 1 day, he was 8 lbs 14 oz, 19 3/4" and his noggin was 36.5 cm. Recorded for all time.

Also--we have lots and lots of cute clothes from the boys that Keaton is just about big enough to fit into, but all I want to do is put him in white onesies.  Because then he coordinates with whatever I wear.  JK.  This will have to change soon, because only a fool dresses their baby in white after Labor Day.

My guess is that Mr. K reaches his peak chubbiness in the next month.  My boys tend to get nice and chunky and then stop growing and make the doctors panic... but I'm looking forward to those fleeting weeks of wrist folds and chubby cheeks.

Not much happens in the first month--he's beginning to smile occasionally and is a pretty accomplished tooter. He's a sweet baby--very little fussing and is a good eater and sleeper. He is eating every 2.5 hours or so during the day and about 4 or 4.5 hours at night which is awesome.  He tends to get a little restless after about 5 am and ends up sleeping beside me at that point to keep him sleeping a bit longer. Keaton got to meet lots of people in his first month, considering we live in a state where we know basically no one. We had 75% of the grandparents and a good assortment of friends from Virginia who either made the trip up or saw us on a quick trip down for work. Not too bad!
