Lochlan Is One Month


(Lochlan was one month old on 7/6 ... we are fashionably late)

Oh sweet Lochlan, at one month old you are just a joy!

These have been some wild days, balancing life as a family of three young kiddos and two busy adults. Some moments have been some of the sweetest I've experienced -- and some have taken every single bit of strength I could muster. I know these times are fleeting, though. Some moments I hate to see pass (I actually really love the newborn days, even the lack of sleep) and some I want to just sweep right out of the door. Like the moments when ALL three kids are crying at the same time. Bah!

At one month, here are Lochlan's stats:

WEIGHT 11lb 10oz (82nd percentile) -- up from 8.2 at birth
HEIGHT 22.76" (88th percentile)
HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE 40.1cm (98th percentile)

He moved from size NB to size 1 diapers. He sleeps a lot and is up 2-3 times a night to feed. Nursing is going well and he's for the most part one chill chap!

He experienced his first Independence Day ...

... his first couple of at-home baths

... nightly snuggles and yard-walks with Daddy while I put the girls down to bed

... plenty of "monkey in the middle" moments

... first trip to the pool (snoozed with a fan in his carseat in one of the covered cabanas)

... and first trip to the lake complete with first pontoon boat ride. (Still loving this Agility wrap)

My youngest sister Laura and I were so lucky again to be pregnant together and our boys are about 6 weeks apart once again. Will on left, Lochlan on right. 

During this month he slept in a bassinet next to my side, swaddled in a Miracle Blanket which also worked wonders with Camille (Char "fought the system" ... the swaddling system, that is). Naps are typically in my arms, the swing, Dock A Tot or a Rock and Play. We try to switch it up as much as possible. 

Sweet precious Lochlan, may you always feel like you can lay in my arms just like this. 
We love you, buddy.
