I can’t believe that our little man is one month old today. Steven and I went out on a date Friday night and we were talking about how incredibly fast this month flew by. It’s true: the more kids you have and the older you get, the faster the days, weeks, months, years tend to go!
We have so enjoyed having Micah as part of our family. He has molded in so well that it really hasn’t taken much effort. Brianna and Jonah absolutely love him, and they are always wanting to hold him and kiss him (Bri much more than Jonah, but he definately has his moments where he is interested!) They are usually very sweet with him, although you do hear the occassional “Be gentle!”, “That’s too rough!”. Brianna has so much confidence with him that it almost scares me sometimes! I have to remind her often that he is not a babydoll, to which she replies “yes, he is! He’s my babydoll!” (Yikes!)
Micah is very calm and laid back (you’d have to be coming in to this noisy family!) and can sleep through anything (which is good because his brother and sister are VERY LOUD!!!!) He is very cuddly, which I love, and he loves to be held and snuggled. We still only hear a peep out of him when he’s hunger (and then can he reve it up!) and if he’s getting bored (if he’s been in the swing, bouncie seat, on his belly for tummy time too long!) He’ll have his one month appointment this week so I don’t have any official stats to give you, but we think he’s about 8 pounds now. (YEAH!) He’s still long and skinny as you’ll see from the pics I took.
But we are having a really good time, and I’m trying to enjoy every moment because our family won’t stay like this forever! (I don’t know what I’ll do when he’s mobile too!!!! HELP!!!!)
Oh, bytheway Jonah is starting to show some interest in potty training (he went pee-pee on the potty last night after bath! YIPPY!!!) so hopefully we’ll be gettin’ that done soon, and getting him out of diapers (hence, saving ourselves big money!!!!!) so I’ll keep you posted on potty training because I’m sure you’re all just dying to know! (And if you were here he’d tell you all about it!)
