A one month old who wanted nothing to do with sitting up and having his picture taken.
Unlike his sister when she was this age…
They have the same serious look, but Ty has filled out much more quickly than Sawyer did. He has the greatest cheeks that make for the cutest sleep smiles.
The day before Ty turned 4 weeks old, he came down with a stomach bug which was not fun for anyone. It started on Sunday night, I called the doctor Monday morning after a night of throwing up after every feeding. She wanted to see him that afternoon and sent us straight to Texas Children's for an ultrasound to make sure he didn't have pyloric stenosis, in which case he would need emergency surgery. Thank God, it came back negative which meant just a stomach bug. Up until this point he was a pretty relaxed easy going baby.
Now, he is pretty fussy most of the day so I guess he is still just not feeling well. He does great at night though, waking up 1 or 2 times, which I could not be more thankful for. He still sleeps in our room at night in the Rock-and-Play and is very happy in there. However, during the day, it is a different story. He will only sleep if he is being held, or if he is on his stomach in his bed.
He sleeps like a rock in his bed, but only on his belly. He will last maybe 10 minutes on his back, so we don't put him in there at night and I check on him every 27 seconds during the day when he is in there…or I just move my computer and work into his room and sit right next to him…he is going to sleep and I am going to work one way or another!!
He weighs about 10 pounds and is already in size one diapers and has outgrown quite a few of his newborn clothes. He loves to snuggle and be held tightly or in the baby wrap and sleep with the shower or blow dryer going, doesn't mind the bath and does not at all like changing his clothes, being put down or having a wet diaper.
Ty's first month has looked quite different than Sawyer's did. I don't remember ever getting out of my PJs or leaving the house, but that is not the case this time around. We still do spend quite a bit of time at home, but get out at least once most days - even if it just for a picnic in the yard.
Sawyer LOVES her brother.
Every time he cries she lets me know he is crying and tells me how hungry he is or how I need to pick him up right away. She especially likes when he is hungry because she gets to watch a show whenever I am nursing him, which also happens to coincide with every time she needs to go potty RIGHT now. Super convenient. Buuuuut, that's neither here nor there, I'm mostly thankful she's potty trained. He continues to be a great eater and has taken a bottle with no trouble a couple of times as well. While I was going back through my blog to look at Sawyer's 1 month post, I also came across a post I did comparing Sawyer's baby pics to Barry's here. I thought she looked so much like him at this age. And she kind of did, but Ty….
I mean…could they look anymore alike?!? And, one more just because its cute =)
