Jack | 1 Month Old

Last Wednesday Jack officially turned 1 month old! I can't believe a month has already come and gone. I had to wait until he was in one of those limp limbed sleeps to snap a few shots of him with his sock monkey. Prepare yourselves for some cuteness overload. 
Weight: 11lbs 11oz... he's a little chunk!
Height: 21 1/2in
At one month, Jack likes...
bath time!
his lamaze peacock
the picture frames above our couch 
(for some reason those never fail to mesmerize him)
lotion massages
his all you can eat milk buffet
falling asleep on mommy or daddy's chest
Dislikes...
sleeping in his bassinet
changing outfits
being put in his carseat
tummy time
any sort of schedule ;)
New this month: Jack has really put on some weight! He now has the cutest rolls on his arms and legs and the chubbiest, most kissable cheeks I ever did see! He is starting to make more eye contact with Steven and I. My absolute favorite time of day is early in the morning when he is super sweet and alert. He'll stare right into my eyes and give me lots of coos and grunts. Priceless. He is a champ at passing gas. He farts so loud I always blame it on his daddy... how can something so loud and startling come from such a small booty??? Anyways, he is pretty much the most perfect and content little baby every day until around 6 o'clock. We call this his witching hour. He loves to use this time to cry and scream and make his mommy and daddy want to pull out our hair. I don't think he is colicky, but rather that it is just a fussy time for him. One theory I've read is that he is possibly de-stressing from all the stimuli he's received during the day?  Steven and I simply hold, shush, and love on him. What more can we do?! Best part of every day is when he passes out on my chest after a feeding. It is the sweetest, most amazing feeling. I love being this guy's mommy.

In his happy and fussy times I am simply so in love with my little boy! I can't get over how much he seems to change and grow everyday and I can't wait to continue documenting his month to month progress. But let's not grow up to quickly, Jack! I love you.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that he is already one month old! He is so darn adorable :D I love the sock monkey theme. Isn't it funny the things they are mesmerized by? I remember Carson loved ceiling fans. Also, they do toot really really loud!

SO precious! And look at all that hair I love it!!! I still have a baldie but that's ok I hope he gets daddy's hair so it won't really come in for a while. Hilton goes through the same hour of just plain fussiness and screaming no matter what we do. I think it's just normal for most babies to have that last little bit of the day that is rough because like you said they've been stimulated all day. Don't worry mama he'll start getting on a schedule I promise! I didn't think it would happen and then at 6 weeks it was like overnight he started sleeping for five to six hour stretches and once we implemented a bedtime routine he goes to bed no problem. Good luck! He's completely precious!!!
