Ok, I may have gone a little overboard with the photos today. But I honestly just couldn't choose a few. Plus, I want to remember every expression he's making at this one month mark. I learned my lesson early on about capturing his little milestones and details. His newborn cry was the sweetest thing I've ever heard. When he'd get worked up, he'd making this adorable "uh-huh, uh-huh" sound and it would instantly make me laugh. I still wish I had recorded it because I didn't realize how quickly his cry would change.
Anyway, my baby turned one month yesterday. I can't believe it's been a month since I became a mama. In some ways, I feel like it came so naturally. He fits into our life so seamlessly. In other ways, I'm still reeling from all the changes and adjustments. We're finally getting into a rhythm around the house. Being a mom is hard and exhausting and stressful and beautiful.
Silas is changing and learning so much.
He's starting to smile in response to our baby talking. He's cooing more too.
He's so much more alert and awake during the day and we can tell that he's starting to notice the world around him more. He stares at the light coming in the window and is captivated by the toy hanging from his bouncy seat.
He takes a bottle like a champ (hallelujah!) which allows me to get out of the house on my own a bit.
He has a love/ hate relationship with a pacifier and only takes it every now and then.
He's nursing great too and is getting so big. Can't wait to see his one month stats at his appointment tomorrow.
He pretty much rocks.
