month one

I know moms say this all the time but really--is Asher really already a month old? Really?

Yes, really.

:: He's a champion eater.
:: He was back up to birth weight by his five-day weight check.
:: And up to a pound above birth weight at his two-week check.
:: And up to almost 11 pounds at four weeks.

:: He's already wearing some 3-month clothes.
:: It kind of breaks my heart a little that he's outgrown his newborn onesies.
:: If he wears them now, they operate more or less like a body tourniquet.

:: On his first day home, Asher peed in his face.
:: Then he peed on Josh.
:: Hilarious.

:: When Asher was first born, I thought he looked so much like me.
:: But I see Josh in him and his expressions more and more.
:: His lips, though, are undeniably mine.

:: Asher is alert and observant,
:: He's the most good-natured babe you'll ever meet.
:: And he's trusting.
:: I love to see that quality in him.

:: He loves his baths.
:: And has a love-hate relationship with the pacifier.
:: He doesn't appreciate swaddling.
:: But he's the best snuggler I've ever known.

:: He started smiling.
:: Intentionally.
:: And it melts my heart every single time.

I'm so glad you have those onesies! They are so cute, it's almost enough to make me want to have another baby. As is the model, obviously.
