Our professional newborn pictures came in this week…we love them! Arthur is up to 7lb 6oz and still growing. His due date was 4/22, prob would have been an 8lb baby if he had gone full term.
It was a great week with Grandpa Bob in town!
Lots of family visits this past week…
– Brother Rick and family, sister Laura and family
– Mike and Nancy were the first to officially babysit Saturday night while Chris and I went to his end of year ski patrol banquette. Chris was honored with a 10 year service award, and a First Aid Provider of the Year Award…Chris nominated me for the ‘angel’ award, given to a loved one that lets their patroller spend a lot of weeknights and weekends away at the ski hill. It was a lovely write up, very sweet for him to recognize me. 🙂
– My Dad is in town all week to visit and help my sister move into her new house!
Arthur is one month old! He was born 4 weeks ago today…though I should technically be marking his month milestones on the 6th each month. So, I jumped the gun, but will fix it next time. I love looking back and seeing how big he is getting…though he is still quite tiny compared to the other one month’ers I met this week at a mom/baby class. That’s ok, he will catch up. We enjoy too much the way he curls up on our shoulder or on our chest. Hopefully that doesn’t change as he gets bigger.
At one month Arthur likes…
-laying on my dad’s chest
-eating with mom
-staying up late…I’d rather sleep during the day then at night!
-burping…I like bicycle and pumping my legs, and going over mom/dad’s shoulder
-walks around the neighborhood and car rides
-being in public and being held by other people
-my crib, I prefer the pack and play in mom/dad’s room
-being gassy! It is quite uncomfortable and I require a lot of burping.
Thanks Grandma Linda for the great milestone stickers!!
