At 2:31 pm today, Mr. Gatsby will officially be one month old. Here’s a snapshot of the little man:
Nicknames: GB (from Holdy), G, Stinky (from me)
Weight: according to my unofficial stand-on-the-scale-without-him-then-stand-on-the-scale-with-him method, he weighs about 10 lbs.
Likes: being held, milk, nipples (mine)
Dislikes: not being held
Tolerates: the swing, the car seat, the Boba carrier, the Moby wrap, his sister’s “affection”
Eats: whenever he wants, but generally every 2-3 hours during the day, cluster feeding during his fussy “Witching Hour” from about 6-10 pm, every 2-3 hours at night
Sleeps: he has more alert time now but he generally takes a 1-2 hour nap in the morning, a solid 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon, on-and-off between fussing in the evening, and then in 2-3 hour chunks at night (sometimes he gives me 4 hours, woo hoo!)
Places Visited: Central Market York, Gymboree, CoWork 155, foodstruck, Target, the grocery store
Because I really boned up Holden’s monthly photos by not showing her sitting in a chair or something to give perspective, I’m going to try a bit harder this time around. The adorable month tie stickers are from Bump2Baby Stickers on Etsy.
Here’s a look back at GB’s first month:
Glad to know ya, little guy! Here’s to many more.
