Huxley's first month

Your first month has certainly been an eventful one!  You got to meet your grandma who traveled over 20 hours to see you.  You've also received your American passport so that we can travel home in January to meet the rest of the family.  Here are some of the details of the life of Huxley:
  • Size: You weigh 8 lbs 13 ounces and almost 21" tall.
  • Eating: You eat every 1-4 hours, about 12 times per day, and make the happiest noises of satisfaction when you're nursing.
  • Diapers: You go through at least 15 per day and love to hold your poops until right after we change your diaper.  Mom is still learning how to avoid your clothes being soaked when you pee while she's changing you.  
  • Sleep: You love to sleep swaddled up by dad at night, cuddled in Grandma's arms, in the ring sling nice and cozy next to Mom or Dad, or in your stroller while we're walking Oolong.  You aren't very fond of naps in your crib yet.  
  • Play: You are very interested in faces and starting to enjoy using your hands to swing your toys around in your little play gym.  You're warming up to belly time, but often end up rooting for milk after just a few minutes.  You love it when we sing to you or play upbeat music.
