Bridger - 1 Month

Weight: 10 lbs (birth weight : 7 lbs 10.7 oz)
Height: 22 inches (birth height : 19 in)
Head: 15 inches (birth head circumference : 13 in)

Eat: Bridger is exclusively breastfeeding and looking at his weight, he is pretty good at it!  He has a great latch and we have been good at breastfeeding since day one!  
He loves nursing (obviously as it is his best talent) and momma loves it too! He isn't really on an eating schedule at the moment as he seems to be growing now and eating more, but he usually wakes every 2-3 hours to eat.
He grunts and snorts when he is super hungry and it is toooo cute. 

Sleep: During the day Bridger naps for about 2 hours at a time, which normally begin about 30-45 min after he eats.  At night time, he nurses and then goes right back to sleep (good baby).  He normally has one stretch of sleep at night time that lasts about 4 hours, but it's usually sometime between 7-1pm, in which case momma is normally still awake... Here's to hoping his long sleep stretch changes to a little later in the nighttime. 

Favorites: Bridger loves nursing, kisses, his sleep sheep (a gift from grandpa Garth), being outside, napping on your chest, tummy time if it's on your lap, showers, and conversations with his momma in the morning and with his daddy at nighttime. 

Dislikes: Bridger isn't so fond of sitting in a wet or dirty diaper, getting clothes on or off, and currently is protesting sleep time.

This first month has gone by so fast!
You still look so tiny to most people, but to momma you are one big boy!
You have such strong neck muscles and love looking up at me or your dad or at the sky.
You have the sweetest smile.
You have the most kissable face!
We love snuggling with you and you still love snuggling with us.
You have the most perfect little nose and the brightest blue eyes... You are the most handsome little boy I have ever seen.
I love your baby noises - you mainly "talk" when you are stretching or nursing, or when we move you while sleeping.  Although you do talk a lot when you go to the bathroom... And you get a very serious look on your face.... Haha!
Your personality is coming out slowly, and we can't wait to see more of it each day!
We love you more than we could ever say!!!
