I have quite a few pictures I haven't had a chance to post, simply because I just haven't had time (imagine that!!). But we'll skip ahead to today's 1-month pictures! I can't believe it's been a month already, and at the same time it feels like Carter's been a part of our family for forever now! We sure do love him!
He still sleeps a lot but he's starting to be awake and adorably alert for a short while after each feeding. He likes being swaddled, falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves in our office room but we only do that once or twice a day. Otherwise he either naps on the couch, in his bouncy seat, or with us in the afternoon. He sleeps in our bed with us at night, in our desperation to get as much asleep as possible. He eats about every 3 hours, night and day and would perhaps be classified as a gassy baby. We tried a bottle with him for the first time a couple days ago, and he took it! But we haven't used it again since. Yet. He's very strong and can hold his head up well now. We don't really do tummy time very much though because his alert time is usually right after he ate and being on his tummy would probably cause him to spit up. He dislikes diaper changes and going in the car seat, but as soon we get going he calms right down. He's a relatively easy baby, but still a baby and therefore requires of a lot of work and attention. He's so worth it though and we're excited to watch him grow and develop!
