Avery 1 month old

Avery you are one month old.. actually you are 1 month and 15 days old. Yes thats right I'm 15 days post due on writing this post and that in itself is an example of how crazy things have been ha ha.
Lets see at one month you are weighing about almost 12 pounds. I'm not sure how much longer you are since you were born, but your newborn sleepers no longer fit because you can't stretch out your little legs. Right now you can still wear 0-3 month stuff but its fitted. you fit comfortably in 3-6 months clothes.
You are a VERY healthy eater you eat about every hour and a half during the day for about 15-20 minutes. Sometimes you snack more often. You often get mad when I don't get you fast enough. once you are mad i can forget feeding you until you settle down. So sometimes we work a long time just getting you ready to eat : )
You really struggle with tummy aches and it makes me so sad. Its obviously gas, we can actually feel and hear your tummy rumbling. Gripe water and Mylicon are our lifesavers right now. You love both--they are really sweet. Mylicon almost instantly puts you to sleep.
You sleep a lot during the day but its pretty sporadic. You don't have much of a daily routine yet I can usually count on you taking a 3 hour nap in the early afternoon. This is when I attempt to clean the house, get ready, and get your brother ready.
Speaking of your brother, he is crazy about you. When he sees you first thing in the morning he says, "Biby, tiss" (baby, kiss). He loves to kiss you, and he is very quick to check on you when your crying. I pray you guys will be the best of friends.
You love ceiling fans and smile at them when we lay you so you can look up and see them. You also enjoy having conversation when your being held. You are smiling and its so beautiful.
You are a blessing to our life. It happens so fast you've only been here a little over a month and i can't imagine our life without you. i love you sweetie
