Kind of like how I did the weekly bump pictures throughout my pregnancy, I will be doing a monthly picture of Harry. And you all know I'll post them here! I bought the onesie stickers at pickysticky.com. Word to the wise (and my future self): Put the sticker on the onesie after you put the onesie on the child!
It really is hard to believe Harry is one month old today. What a crazy month it has been! It started out with my 36 week prenatal appointment and finding out I was in labor without even knowing it. It then morphed in to a nearly week-long NICU stay for my little preemie, and now here we are... a happy little family of three!
Harry has been a great baby this past month. He really only cries when he's hungry or wet. Or when he loses his paci, which seems to happen every three minutes, ha! And while he isn't sleeping through the night just yet, he'll sleep up to six hours at a time... this morning he slept from 2am to 8am! However, sometimes he thinks its fun to party until 3am, which is a little rough.
In general, I love being a mom. I've wanted to be a mom for a long time and can't believe I now have a baby to call my own. I'm definitely still learning the ropes, but being a mom has come pretty naturally to me, I definitely have those motherly instincts!
Here are some stats on Harry that I plan on updating each month.
Weight: I'm thinking around the 7 pound mark, maybe 7 1/2
Height: No more than 20 inches I'd imagine
Diaper Size: Newborn Pampers or Huggies
Clothing Size: Newborn
Eating: 2.5-3 ounces of Similac NeoSure formula 7-8 times a day
