Lincoln: 1 Month

We have all survived the first month! This has been an incredibly joyous and very busy month. I never knew how much my heart would grow and continue to grow as your little personality unfolds. Our home is so full of love for our two sweet boys.

It's not all dreamy and sweet, there is less sleep and a lot of juggling going on between the boys' needs.

Lincoln's 1 Month Stats:
We'll update this once we've been to the doctor this week.

Here are your one month photos. We'll be measuring how you're growing compared to your little elephant.

What you've been up to this month...

-You're eating every 1 1/2-2 hours during the day. You're quite the hungry monkey.
-You latched like a champ from the moment you were born, and I'm so proud of you!!!
-You're somewhat of a sleepy baby and in an effort to help you gain a little extra weight (at Dr. Davis' request) we've been waking you up every 3 hours at night. We're sure hoping you've gained ample weight and can stop doing this after your appointment this week!
-Just like big brother (and maybe all babies), you HATE having your diaper or clothes changed.
-You are such a snuggle bug! We can't hold you all day long, but sometimes it feels that way.
-Dax picked out the red dog WubbaNub for you before you were born, and it's definitely a favorite! Now if you could just learn to keep that paci in your mouth.
-Your first sweet grins are making their way to your little face. They seem to be shifting from gas induced to just pure cuteness!
-You love to be wrapped or worn in a ring sling. All that wonderful sleepy dust works on you when you're snuggled next to mommy!
-We've enjoyed several playdates with cousins and friends, outings to Target and church, and 2 photo shoots in just 1 very fast month!

Here are a few more pictures from all our fun as a family of 4:

We love you so much, Bug, and can't wait to watch your little life blossom!
