Oliver Grant :: One Month Old

Chubs is already at 10.2 and 21 inches long! He started out at 6.13 and dropped to 6.7. By the time he was a week old, he was up to 7.10! Definitely my biggest baby :)

We're up about every hour and half to nurse. He goes back to sleep right after, so that's nice! He sleeps on and off through the day as well.

What an eater! This boy wants to nurse about every hour. His latch is good and everything seems to be evening out. 

We started out in Newborn, obviously, but moved to size 1 about two week in! We're using Pampers Swaddlers. I think they work best for newborn babies.

Even though he is a chunker, baby boy is still in newborn clothing. I doubt it will last much longer though!

He's mostly a chill baby. He likes to eat and sleep and poop. He's pretty quick to cry when he gets hungry though. He sleeps most of the time and doesn't cry a whole lot. He does spit up frequently but it doesn't seem to bother him too much.

What I Want To Remember

all the little grunts and noises
the way he farts and poops so loudly
how he raises his little legs to get better leverage
how he snuggles into my neck
first baby smiles
his facial expressions - Frowning
milk blisters on his lip
stretching and moving
how his little feet already stink

Girl Scouts - Daisy - Meeting #6 "Zinni Petal"

I was actually not able to attend the sixth meeting. I had taken two weeks off for maternity leave but our little one decided to come a week later than expected. Luckily I have great parent volunteers who were able to step in and lead the meeting for me!

For this meeting the girls worked on earning their Zinni Petal, which is light green and teaches them how to be considerate and caring.

Craft/Activity - Sunflower craft
This is a fun craft I wanted to do with the troop last year but ran out of time. I printed off a sunflower template and the girls took tissue paper to make the flower and actual sunflower seeds for the center.
