Easton at 1 Month Old

Wow so is my little boy really 1 month old?!? (2/24/12) I cant believe this. I already feel like he's growing up too fast. =( On Tuesday (2/21/12) we went by the doctor's office. We didn't have an appointment, I just wanted to see how much he weighed. He was just so small when he was born. The last weight I had on him was 6 # 2ozs on 2/7/12 when he was 2 weeks old. In just 2 short weeks, this little piglet now weighs 7# 6ozs! Wow, he has gained almost a pound and a half in 2 weeks. This is what I like to hear! This is E with his elephant "Jala."

7 Pounds 6 ounces

21 inches long

*Sleeps 3-4 hours at night. Eats, then back to sleep for 3 hours. Sometimes he teases me and sleeps for 5 hours. But its only a fluke.

*Eats 2 1/2 - 3 ounces every 3 hours during the day.

*Still napping alot during the day

*Has had periods of being awake for up to 3 hours! =) But usually just an hour and a half.

*Pretty fussy in the evenings.

*Follows objects, if moving slowly, and will make eye contact and stare at faces.

*Smiles randomly. Not necessarily at certain times.
*He has recently started cooing alot! It is just about the most adorable thing! Melts my heart! Every time he does it, I do it back to him.

I LOVE this little dimple he has on the left cheek. He got that from his daddy.

At this point he was tired of me taking pictures.


*Being held

*Sitting up in his boppy or on your legs to look around

*Being talked to

*His paci

*Loud noises (Hair dryer, shower running, static on radio, etc.)

*Vibrations on his bouncy seat and bassinet (May have to phase those out so that he will sleep well when he transitions to his crib upstairs.)


*Being put in his car seat

*Being naked

*Pulling clothes on & off over his head

It is amazing to watch this little man grow and change right before our eyes. I am excited to see what the future holds and for him to be able to interact with us. But I certainly do not want to wish away these months because I know I will never have them back. We Love you Easton! I cant believe you are 1 month old!!
