4 Weeks Old

Nicholas, you are FOUR weeks old already! Where is the time going?! Mommy only has seven and a half more weeks at home with you. :-( You are doing so good this week, with the exception of a couple rough nights. Your medicine seems to really be helping you and you are so pleasant and happy! You are so much more alert this week. You are enjoying watching people and things and even tracking us as we move around the room.

You will be ONE month old on Sunday, which makes me sad to an extent. I want you to stay little and cuddly for a long time, but at the same time, I am excited to watch you grow. I think you will be close to eleven pounds on Monday at your one month check up. You eat 4 ounces every three hours on the dot and between that and the 2 tsp of cereal in every bottle, I think you are doing great. :-) You appear to have grown in length as well, but we'll see.

You are starting to really like your swing and of course you have always loved your bouncy and boppy. This week we have been out and about some. It seems to be good for both of us to get out. Monday we went to the grocery store for the first time, Tuesday Aunt Melissa kept you for a couple of hours while Mommy and Daddy ran a couple of errands, Wednesday we went to see Gigi at work and to Old Navy, and today we went to mommy's office and you stayed at Gigi's house for Mommy to get her hair cut. You and Beasley (my parent's dog) are good friends now. He definitely loves you! haha!

We tried to put you in your own bed on Tuesday night, but you weren't really happy. You like your cozy newborn napper on the pack n play. We are ordering your birth announcements this week. Mommy is so excited to get that done and to see them. I think they will be adorable, just like you!

You are a precious, sweet, beautiful baby. You have brought such joy and love to our house. Mommy and Daddy love you so very much!!!
