Bennett is One month!
The past month has been a bit of a blur. Between the doctor’s appointments for the bilirubin, the weight gain problems, and the nursing challenges and the sleep deprivation, I barely remember anything. Team Baby is on full-team press to try to survive. (Team Baby is Jimmy, Ingrid, GiGi, and Grandpa).
Age: 1 month
Weight: 8 lbs
Hair: dirty blonde
Sleeping: HAHAHAHA only when held or on his Daddy’s chest and that’s for a hot minute. I miss sleeping so much!
Eating: breastfeeding with supplementation via a feeding tube
Milestones: FINALLY passed his birth weight and is no longer jaundiced
Memorable outings: does the doctor count???
Likes: eating, windows, sleeping on Daddy, walks
Dislikes: being changed, waiting a second for anything, sleeping in his bassinet, crib, swing, rock ‘n play, etc…
Words/sounds: grunts all.the.time when sleeping
Nicknames: “Little Man,” “Benny,” “Mr. Piggy”
Interesting Facts: he sneezes four times in a row once a day, every day
Funny moments: his first bath was hilarious
Looking forward to: sleeping, getting nursing down, sleeping, his first real smile, sleeping, oh and sleeping
