Happy One Month, Nicholas!

Nicholas, today you turned one month old! Daddy and I cannot believe you are already one month old!!! We love you so much and our world revolves around you. Being a mommy is the greatest thing I've ever done. I love it so much! You were definitely worth all the pain of the wait for you! Good things really do come to those who wait!!!!
Here are some facts about you:
  • You are a pretty good sleeper. We put you in your pack n play in our room around 11:00 every night after your last bottle and you sleep until 2:30-3:00. You easily fall back asleep and sleep for exactly three hours, every time. It's funny, but once you wake up the first time you are like a little alarm clock! You also nap in your crib, but we haven't had a full night there yet, probably won't until 8 weeks or so.
  • You LOVE to eat! You eat 4oz every two and a half to three hours of milk with 2 teaspoons of rice cereal added due to your reflux issues. Your reflux has good days and bad days, but over the past couple of days, you've been much, much better!
  • You are already in 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. Mommy is sad you didn't wear some of your cute clothes, but that's ok, you have plenty more! :-)
  • Your favorite activities are tummy time, sitting in your boppy, sitting in your bouncer, and going for a R-I-D-E (yes, we have to spell it out because poor Spencer thinks he has to go if he hears ride! Haha!)
Today we had a little party to celebrate the fact that you are ONE MONTH OLD! We are so blessed and happy that God has given us a beautiful, healthy, happy baby and we just wanted to celebrate!!!! We had hamburgers and cooked out for lunch. Mommy got the idea to have a cake each month from her blog friend, Jennifer, known to you as your blog friend, Brody's mom. I love the idea and look forward to having one again next month! This month we did one with your nursery theme in mind. Thanks Cake Boutique for another awesome cake!
When we sat you in your chair you put your arm up on your pillow and it was just the CUTEST thing ever! Haha! Also, we dressed you in your little "Dad's BBQ Buddy" shirt and shorts! C.U.T.E!
Happy Birthday to you!
Our little family!
Happy Birthday buddy! I am so excited to spend the next month with you! It is going to be fun!
