Owen turned one month old on April 15th. I can't believe how time flies! We are all having so much fun with him. He is so tiny, but so strong. He tries to hold his head up and look around or tries to push up with his legs. He likes to think he can sit up too. Of course he can't yet, but he is determined to try. He has the cutest smile, although its mostly in his sleep. He loves to eat! He gained 3 pounds in 6 weeks. If he is sleeping and wakes up hungry he doesn't wait to let you know. He immediatly cries as loud as he can to declare its meal time. He isn't exactly a binki baby but he will take one when fussy. Emma never did accept them. lol. He is getting rounder and I can tell how he has grown. And its so fun to put him in cute baby boy clothes! I am enjoying that, while he has grown, he is still so small. :)
Emma just loves Owen to death. Always wanting to hold him or be a helper. She tells me all the time that she loves him and she loves to give him kisses. She is such a trooper through this change. She was concerned in the beginning, especially when I was in the hospital, and then about his belly button which was funny. At first when he cried she'd put her hands over her ears and ask why he was crying. Now its just second nature and as soon as he fusses she will bring the binki out. We have been stopped a few times in places like Smiths or Walmart and people stop to ask Emma if she is the big sister. Of course she proudly answers "Yes!" She asks all the time if "when he gets bigger, can he play games?" She is so excited to have a brother and we are so excited for her!
So far so good. Mommy doesn't get much sleep. I usually get thru a 24 hour period on about 4 hours sometimes 5 hours of sleep as the longest stretch. Daddy works so we try not to disturb him on those days. We have had all our doctor appts and everyone is healthy and doing great. What more could we ask? Healthy, happy, and safe. :) We are truly lucky and blessed!
