Blaine at One Month

This little dude is already a month old? What? I’ve heard every mother say that time flies. Well, it’s going at warp speed this time around. Blaine is a true joy, so sweet and is pretty easy going so far. He doesn’t like to be left alone and seems to enjoy being around noise most of the time. Check that off the list since he has two older brothers.

HE SMILED AT ME! Intentionally, I think, yesterday and again this morning. Warms my heart. He seems to have a big, opened mouth smile and I love it to pieces. Just like him :)with lion

Took him for his one month appointment today. Only three days past his actual “one month birthday”. I’d say that’s a success for this mom. With Brian out of town, getting three little children ready and out the door by 8 was no small feat. I conquered it well, though. Didn’t blow dry my hair but when do I do that anyway? I digress…

Wearing size 1 diapers but as soon as we run out of those, he’ll be in size 2 diapers. He’s filling the 1’s up too fast. Size 3-6 month clothes. He has a long stride but the legs in size 6 month outfits are too long. Sleep varies at night. Sometimes it’s 5-7 hours, sometimes it’s ever 3 hours. Both are nice either way.


     Weight: 13 pounds, 8 ounces

     Height: 23.7 inches

     Head: 15.6 inches

     *Off the charts. Seriously? Never thought I’d have a baby off the baby charts. Admittedly, it’s a nice feeling. With the last child barely at 10-15% for the first few months, it is an exciting thing to not have to be concerned with weight gain.

Hi Elyse!
Congratulations on Blaine...I clicked on your blog link today and saw his one month pictures!

If we lived closer, Blaine would have a friend. Our Anna Louise was born 9/16 :) :)
