Phillip is one month old today! He had his check-up with the doctor this morning, and he weighs 10 pounds 12 ounces and is 24 inches tall. He's peachy in every way possible and healthy as a horse. Mother-in-law bought this carrier for us awhile ago, and we tried it out for the first time today. I love it, especially how his little legs hang out! We waited to try it because there's no head rest persay, so we wanted his neck muscles to be a little stronger. I've been playing with adjusting it a bit, and it's really comfortable. Phillip likes it, too. MIL also bought an Over the Shoulder Baby Holder for us which we've been using a bit. It's OK, but I don't think it's the right size for me, so it's not terribly comfortable and Phillip seems to squish around a lot. But it does free up one hand. This one is also nicer because I can comfortably have both hands free (because the other one isn't quite the right size I don't like taking my hand away from supporting Phillip in case he decides to heave his head out. He doesn't like having his head way down in, so it's always peeking out.) Another first for the day - we tried the first cloth diapers on Phillip today, since he's a bit bigger! So far, so good, and no leaks! I used the prefolds with Bummis Super Whisper Wraps. They're definitely a lot bulkier than disposables, but Phillip doesn't seem to mind, and I certainly don't!
Mmmmmmm, fatty fatty milk. Adam noticed this morning that Phillip's getting fat bracelets on his little wrists! You know, where there's a big crease between fat rolls. How cute. It's so amazing that I can provide exactly what he needs to eat, without having to do anything to make it except for eating and drinking lots of water, which are things I do anyway. Incredible!
And shoulder fuzz! This was one of the first things that I noticed when I looked Phillip over after he was born. I wanted to take a picture before it falls out. Happy one-month birthday, Phillip!
