I can hardly believe it. Our sweet little Avery is already one month old! It seriously seems like he was just born yesterday, so I'm not sure how this is even possible.
But honestly? It's like he's been with us forever. In just one months time, he's stolen our hearts. We are completely smitten with him. He really is such a sweet, content baby boy.
So what has Avery been up to this past month?
Well, he had his one month appointment, and he is already 10 pounds 4.5 ounces, and measuring 22 inches long! He's in the 75th percentile for both weight and height.
He's a big eater! He'll eat anywhere between 3 to 5 ounces every three hours. He normally takes one long afternoon nap, and he'll go 4 or 5 hours between feedings during that time. He actually sleeps, which is so different from Lincoln!
He's mostly waking twice during the night to eat, but he has done a couple 6 hour stretches! He usually will go right back to sleep after he eats.
Our big boy has already grown out of his newborn clothing and diapers. He is now in size one diapers and wearing mostly 3 month clothes, and a few things in 0-3 months.
Avery is very alert and will follow voices and sounds. He is especially alert to his Mommy, Daddy, and big brother's voices! The other night, he was just staring at Lincoln, and following him with his eyes wherever he was, it was pretty amazing.
On his one month birthday, he started what I believe to be REAL smiles! So sweet!!
We had his one month photo shoot the other day. Here are a few of the shots.
I don't know why, but he seems SO much bigger in these pictures than he is in person!
Because I've been terrible about blogging lately, I figured I'd post a few of my favorite photos of our sweet Avery from this past month.
He really is such a sweet baby. I cannot say that enough!! He is so content and we just love him to pieces!! I cannot wait to see what this next month brings :)
