Yes, Kellen turned one month on Thanksgiving day...time is FLYING!!!! Anyways, he had his one month check up today 11.30, and it went very well...his dr kept saying, "You are one very healthy little boy!" and "Mom must be putting magic dust in her breast milk!" Well, when he was born he weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces, then after a few days he dropped down to 5 pounds 14 ounces. One week later he went up to 6 pounds 11 ounces, now at his one month check up he is a whopping 9 pounds 7.5 ounces!!!! And is 20 inches long! I am so happy! Kellen eats like crazy! 4 ounces every 4 hours.
He recognizes our faces now and he loves music! We have been working on tummy time. His back is really strong. He holds his little head up very well AND HE STARTED SMILING!!! So much in love! He loves going for car rides and sleeping in our bed…yes, we are co-sleeping. Some moms are against this, but it works for us and we love it! I am such a light sleeper, I know he is fine. We plan to co-sleep for how ever long we feel like we need to. I love co-sleeping! He is making new sounds this week too, “auh” and “ooo”. He is still wearing Newborn size diapers and Newborn size clothes, our little bean!
His Next appointment will be his 2 month check up, on January 3. He will get his shots...
