So my sweet tiny squishy is now one month old! I don't really know how that is possible!
Right now he has one or two alert times of the day but still sleeps the majority of the time. He is up every 2 hours at night. I don't mind at all though. This stage passes so quickly and I truly want to savor every second. Even the times that include screaming and middle of the night feedings. All too soon he will join his brothers in growing up way to fast...
He is a champion nurser and can finish a feeding in 5 minutes. He is growing A LOT. We are already in 3 month and some 3-6 month clothing. He is a serious little chunker :) His colic issues are getting much better and now as long as I am holding him he is happy as a lark. No screaming at all unless I put him down. Just look at the pics! ha! He loves the ergo but doesn't love the car that much. If I time it right and feed him right before we go and he is sleepy, he does great in the car. I cant always do that though and we pay for it!!
A week ago he had an allergic reaction to something and broke out in hives. Since then he has had allergic dermatitis on his face, ears, and scalp. It is getting much better but he is super sensitive (just like ej). I cant eat any dairy at all, fresh veggies, or anything with spices. Basically I eat oatmeal for breakfast, a pb&j for lunch, and a grilled piece of meat with only salt and maybe some steamed carrots and fresh fruit for dinner. That is it, literally. It is not fun but it is worth it to me and I did it once before with ej so I was more prepared this time.
He also has reflux but we are off the zantac as that was one of the things bothering him I think.
As big as he is, he is still so tiny too. He still has his newborn fuzz all over and his sweet little feet could just kill me. So.stinkin.cute! His eyes are still bright blue and his hair is coming in blonde. I still can't tell yet who he will favor more but I am leaning toward ej still. And my favorite thing are his noises. He is so noisy all the time. Who knew grunts and squeaks could sound so darn cute!? All in all things are going really well and I just pray that I can somehow lock away each moment in my memory. Knowing he is my last just somehow makes everything more precious. He was meant to be a part of our family but I still feel as if he is such a gift. Another sweet little miracle. So so grateful for these three boys!!!
