1 Month!

Our little man is already a month old!  The last month has both felt super fast and super slow all at once.  Looking back at pictures, I can definitely see how much he has grown and changed since we first met him.  I haven’t looked around too much at the fun monthly updates, but here’s a mixture of a few questions about our family and Asher that I thought could be fun to start!

1 month

What we’ve learned…this month, we’ve learned how to change a LOT of diapers and how to prevent leaks and how to prepare for the potential peeing during a diaper change.  We’ve learned to rock and cuddle and sleep when we can.  We’ve learned to love a whole lot and how much we like sleep.

What we’re enjoying right now…tummy time on mommy and daddy!  Longer walks and times in the car.  Music, music, and more music 🙂 Time alone while Asher naps!

What our biggest struggles are…sleep…what a crazy transition it is to go from sleeping a lot to being thrilled when you get 4 hours in a row.  Though, we are very thankful for when those 4 hours in a row do come!

Asher’s most exciting milestones are…sleeping a bit longer! Making more noises and glimpses of smiles.

What we are looking forward to…baby showers this coming month and having my brothers come to meet Asher!

Asher’s likes and dislikes…he loves tummy time, car rides, walks, grabbing at plastic, kicking, and music.  Dislikes include being hungry, speakers talking, loud noises, being startled, bright sun, and when the stroller stops moving.

What sleep looks like…we are getting up usually two or three times a night to eat.  He’s a hungry little man more often than not!  Usually around 1 or 2 and then again around 4 or 5.  Plus, lots of naps throughout the day too.  Though, we are getting longer wake times now too.

What we’re eating…for Asher, milk, milk, and more milk.  For the rest of us, we’ve had our share of salads, pizza, pasta, granola bars, quiche, tacos, and ice cream!

Who we have seen…a lot of family including getting a 5 generation photo, church family, friends, a Kevin Leal meeting, two family reunions, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. We’ve made trips to the library, Target, church, and Dunn Bros.

At the last doctor appointment…we learned Asher weighs 9 lb 7 oz and is 21 inches long.  This was at about 2 and a half weeks.
