He's one month old....

I can't believe that Baby K is already one month old! He had his 4 week check up yesterday, and he's already up to 9 lbs 3 oz. That makes him in the 35%. That's quite an acomplishment for a little guy who was suppose to be so small.

He also had to get a shot. The nurse told me, "Now mom, his face is going to get really red and he's probably going to cry, but this is necessary to keep him healthy." She was right. He did cry...and I felt my eyes fill up with tears trying to comfort him. It was horrible--not for him. He only cried for a minute. For ME!!! Okay, so I only cried for a minute too, but it broke my heart to see him in pain even if it was only for a nano-second.

Last night wasn't so good. Baby K wouldn't eat much yesterday, and he didn't sleep well either. I feel like a zombie today! I was up and down most of the night with him. He hasn't napped well today either. I hope it's not like this everytime he gets shots.

He is starting to get his own little personality. I'll insert here that he gets his lack of patience from his father. Actually, he gets all bad qualities from his dad, right? In the last few days I have noticed that he tries to smile now. I've even heard what I thought may be a little laugh from him.

I love Kenny Chesney's song, "Don't Blink." It's so true. I feel as if I blinked and a month is gone! I just can't believe he's already a month old!

Oh my goodness Elaine! That was a fast month! I know, I cried the first few times Mercy got her shots. It gets a bit easier though! They do change so fast. It seems like they change every day!

Time just flies so fast. I want it to slow down so we can nibble on these baby toes for a while longer! :(

Sounds like he's doing great though! Way to go, momma!

That's so sweet about the little smile! I can't wait to see pictures of it!

One month? AHHHH... why does time past SO QUICKLY when you want it to chill and drag by so slowly when you just want something good to happen? I am crying already at day 12 about how fast my baby is growing up! ACK!
The shot must have been awful for you. We had to take Ladybug in for a blood draw (foot prick) twice last week and while she slept right through it, I balled both times. Seriously.
Glad everything is going so well!
*hugs*

Hi Elaine, I am doing well, just really tired. Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it started with some major computer problems and now, I have to blame it on being tired. I have 4 wks to go, went to the DR today and we are 1 cm dialated, other than that no new news. I am intending to update on Thurdsday. Happy 1 month!! I am so happy for the two of you! Thanks for checking in on me, I actually though everyone kind of forgot about me, so I really appreciate it.
