i can’t believe my baby is one month old today!!
so much has happened in this month since your birth. most of it hasn’t been easy. but through it all, you have grown and changed so much! your papa and i can’t believe how it’s possible to love you more and more every day, even in your most cranky moments! you weigh 9lbs 10oz now, and are 21 1/2 inches long. you can hold your head up really well when you’re wide awake, and look like you want to crawl soon! your gramma comes to visit you all the time, and your grampa has founds lots of reasons to come by to visit you. your great-grampa is very proud of you too, and is looking forward to feeling better so he can hold you again.
you are a little miracle, and we will always love you.
i’m hoping to get some professional pictures taken of you this weekend! hope hope hope!!
we love you, jeremiah!!
as for me, i am looking about the same or thinner than before pregnancy. i started my period last week. it has been light, but it’s been there. what a pain!! breastfeeding is going fine – it doesn’t hurt much anymore, and i’m actually enjoying it for the most part.
the only thing is, he’s ALWAYS hungry, and he’s been cranky and screaming in pain AGAIN almost all the time. he acts like he’s starving nearly all of his waking hours. is this possible?? or is there something else we’re missing?? i am now GLAD we’re using a bottle too, because i could not handle always holding him to feed him. i would never be able to go to the bathroom or anything because he is literally hungry THAT MUCH.
tell me about colic. i really thought it started in older babies. what can be done to help/prevent it? we are really miserable, as he is, and don’t know quite how to handle this baby as is.
i feel very guilty because i have wanted this baby for so long, and now that i have him i wonder if i was really ready to be a parent…it’s sooo hard. i love him soooo much, but MY GOODNESS. is it this hard for everyone, or are we just really big wimps?!?!
i know this is a horrible post for his one month birthday…but honesty is important…
