My baby is already 1 month old. Where has the time gone? :( Didn't we just bring him home from the hospital? It seems that way.
A lot has happened in this past month. Josiah has gained weight; he had pictures taken; Sadie has accepted the baby; we finally bought a stroller; I turned 30; and Josiah has grown on us more and more with each passing day.
It's been an adjustment having Josiah. Some days are easier than others. Sometimes just getting a shower in is a luxury. I never realized how much time little ones take. If I can throw a load of laundry in too, I'm doing good! LOL....hopefully I can get into a better routine in the next few weeks. I don't want the house to go to the dogs. It seems like he is eating well (he was 6lb,11oz at birth, and the last Dr. appt he was 8lb,5oz) considering he has gained 2 pounds and 3 ounces in the last month. He really likes to eat.
One thing I love is our morning time chats. When Josiah wakes up, I feed him, and after that I will prop him up on a pillow, and we "chat". He is such a happy baby and always smiling. I am thankful for a healthy and happy baby. Although contrary to what others think, he does cry, see pic below.
In other news...
I just had my 30th birthday. There was no big shebang or anything. Just the routine. I did get my knives sharpened for my birthday....and oh am I ever happy. I did not realize how dull those knives were until I used the sharpened knives for the first time. It was like heaven!! Thank you Joel for being so thoughtful.
I FINALLY decided on a stroller, and I love it!!! It is so smooth and looks very nice. It even matches our car seat and was super affordable. Josiah is too small for the seat right now, but give him about 3 months and I bet he'll fit. I got to use it on Saturday at Ikea. So happy with it.
This weekend we're going to Noni's house (that's my Mom, she wants to be called Noni rather than Grandma). She hasn't seen him since the day he was born with the few exceptions of pictures and videos I send her via email. Thank you Lord for technology. I don't know how we ever survived without the internet...lol. She will be surprised at how big and chunky Josiah is.
I ventured out and made Chicken pot pies for the first time the other day. I hear they were good. I don't like them, so I didn't try them. I also made orange chicken too. I am grateful that I can stay home with my little boy and try out new recipes on the hubbs. Thank you Joel for your sacrifice.
Until next post,
