Oh man, I cannot believe it’s been a whole month since this little guy joined our family! This month has seriously flown by. It has 100% been like that saying – the days are long, the years are short. This month was SHORT but the days? Not so much haha so much sleep deprivation! But it’s so, so worth it.
I’ll be doing these little monthly updates and hopefully I can stick to them better than I did with Joey’s haha
Nicknames: Ben, Benny Bear, Benny Ben, Benja
Likes: He loves, loves being held. Until he doesn’t. Then he’ll cry until he’s put down and can spend sometime just on his own for a little bit – but not too long!
Dislikes: At first this boy was NOT a fan of baths but he’s slowly come around to them. He really dislikes loud noises – and who can blame him? Between big brother and Pudge there’s plenty of that to go around lol He also really hates being cold, if he gets just an itty bitty cold, he starts crying.
Milestones: This boy flew through newborn sized diapers + clothes. We’re well into sized 1 diapers and 0-3 months clothes looks like might be too short soon. HELP,
Weight/Height: Last time he went to the doctors was his two weeks checkup and he was 8 lbs 11 oz and 21.5 inches at the time but I expect he’s gained quite a bit of weight since.
Clothing Size: As I mentioned above Ben’s into 0-3 / 3 months clothing already! So did not see this coming as Joey was in newborn clothes for.ever.!
Sleep: His naps are ALL over the place but nighttime is a-okay. He usually wakes up twice but we’ve had a couple of nights of only one night feeding and it’s been bliss!
Random Tidbits: This first month was so different from Joey’s first month. Everything from the birth, to his first week (home instead of ICU, yay!!), to Lance being gone. I honestly wouldn’t change anything except for the last bit – I SO wish Lance was here to see all the little things like Ben’s adorable smile, how fast he’s growing, and all his funny face expresions – like the one in his 1 month picture haha.
