One Month




Ethan is one month old today. His stats from his doctor's appointment yesterday:

Weight: 10 pounds, 7 ounces (75 - 90%)
Length: 22.5 inches (95%)

This has been one of the most fun months of my life and I know that Casey would agree. The lack of sleep is not much to give up compared to what we've been blessed with. We're so in love with our little munchkin. After Ethan eats, he has a certain look which Casey calls "fat and happy." I guess that pretty much describes my boy right now. He is apparently doing well on his feeding and he's such a happy baby. He took a bottle of expressed breast milk for the first time last night with Casey and both of them seemed to really enjoy the experience.

What a precious little boy! I can't wait to meet him!

He is getting so big! Kenna may be over a month older but he has already passed her up!

Love the pictures and I'm glad he did okay with the bottle. That is a special time to Daniel and Kenna and she switches from nursing to bottle without a problem - hope you have the same good luck

Beautiful pictures. My how time flies. I agree lack of sleep is nothing compared to the pure joy children bring. He looks mighty happy - early smiler. Too sweet.

He is such a beautiful boy! I know boys are handsome, not beautiful, but nevertheless what precious pictures. Glad you are sharing them, and hope every day is a joy the way the last month has been for you.

I can't believe it has already been a month!!! I'm so glad you've been blessed with such a happy, joyful baby boy!

Well, you are probably hearing this from quite a few folks, but I just can't believe it has been a whole month already. Of course he just keeps getting more and more handsome. Thanks for the new pictures.

He is much too cute for words.

Wow, I cannot believe he is a month old already. He is handsome, look foward to meeting him soon.

He is absolutely adorable! Loved getting to enjoy him at the last book club meeting. Yes, he seems like a very healthy and happy baby!!! What more can you ask for?

Oh my goodness guys. He is so handsome (he will appreciate the handsome comment later in life when cute is no longer acceptable, remember to tell him i said it!)

I am so happy for you guys! I cant wait to meet him one day. We can talk about the French Revolution or his uncle's brief but embarassing crush on martha stewart and so many other things. Seriously though, i hope you guys are doing amazing, and i am so so happy for you guys, and i know Rachel hates it when people write the same word many time to show emphasis. I am so so so so so sorry.

P.S.- I have that certain look as well, except i call it Fat Happy, not fat and happy.
