Mo at one month

Monday, August 20, 2012

Mo is one month today...if you count Monday to Monday.  Otherwise, his one month birthday is Thursday...if you count by the calendar date.  

This is a little bit about Mo at one month.  He has a somewhat reliable "schedule".  We wake up at 11 am, which is unbelievable and awesome.  Then, he is up for an hour or two and nurses practically the whole time before he goes back to sleep for about 2-3 hours.  He then gets up around 3 pm and basically nurses until bedtime (he takes 5-20 minute breaks between sessions but not much longer).  Then he goes to sleep a little earlier than us and we sleep until 11 am nursing throughout the night but never keeping me up too long (of course I wrote this yesterday and last night I was up for 3 hours with him plus another two off and on).  He is an EASY baby....another way he reminds me of my Maxie.  I hope those aren't my famous last words.  

Some other stuff about Mo - He is a big boy.  He weighs 11 pounds and he is wearing Carter's size 3 months onesies.   Right now, he is going through a bit of a baby acne phase, he is losing his hair.  When he is awake, he is super alert.  He smiles and sometimes even laughs in his sleep (seriously, he laughs.  It is hilarious).  He is an amazing cuddler.  He makes little contented sounds when he sleeps.  He hates being swaddled (my boys BOTH hated being swaddled - they like to be hands free!).  He is happiest when he is being held - sometimes crying and crying and then stopping immediately when he is picked up.  That being said, he hardly cries.  He is a lovebug.  

I can't believe it has been a month.  It has gone by so quickly.  One month down.  We are celebrating Mo's birthday every month over here.  He is a very important and special boy!

Yes, he IS a lovebug! I adore these pictures and, more importantly, the boy in them. He looks a lot like sweet Maxie in the bottom picture, especially with that hand on his face, just like his brother. Mo's little rolls and chubby cheeks are sooo yummy.

Yep, he looks JUST like Max in the last picture. Sometimes it is uncanny. Other times he looks just like Mo and nobody else.
