Colton Turns One Month Old

Colton turns ONE month old today!
I can hardly believe that he has been a month since you were born! You are such a sweet blessing to us and we fall more in love with you every day!

Colton - What have you been up to this month?

You had your one month check-up yesterday and you weigh 9lbs 1oz (35th percentile). You are 22 inches long (75th percentile) and your head is in the 50th percentile.

You are wearing newborn diapers and newborn clothes however they are getting a little small on you. I've been putting you in 0-3 month clothes more this week.
This is Ryan at one month old!

You are eating so well. You have gotten yourself on a great eating schedule. You eat every 3 hours during the day and have been going every 4 hours at night.

You are still sleeping in our room in your bassinet. It's working out great and I figure we will move you to your room when you start sleeping through the night.

You love to nap in your car seat and are usually out by the time we get out of the driveway.
When we are home you usually nap either in your bassinet or swing. You have consistently taken a nap in the afternoon while big brother Ryan naps.

You have gotten into a great eat, wake, sleep cycle during the day. I think you and babywise are going to get along great.

You love your bouncy seat and your swing however you love to be held.

I have to say that I think you and Ryan look alot alike but you also have your own look. You have darker hair than Ryan did and sadly you are losing most of it on the top of your head. You kinda look like an old man who is going bald. Oh bless you!
You are such an easy baby and only cry when you are hungry or tired.

You are starting to be more alert during the day. You love to watch your big brother and can't take your eyes off him. You even sleep through all his loud noises.

You LOVE tummy time. During tummy time yesterday you fell asleep and took a good hour long nap.
Your big brother Ryan loves you and loves to help me in taking care of you. He loves to give you your bottle, bring me the paci and even tries to burp you. Not so sure he will be as crazy about you in a few months when you start taking away his toys, haha!

We are completely crazy about you and just love you to pieces. I love to hold and snuggle with you.

We love you so much and cannot imagine our family with you in it!
And I just had to add this picture because it's so cute! You were getting a little impatient with my picture taking and were ready for a nap!

This is Ryan at one month on 7/16/09
