One month

Leland is a month old today!  It is crazy to think a month has gone by, some of it seems to have sped past while other times have dragged.  But overall time is going by really fast. 

Chunky is still growing and eating a lot, he is currently working on some rolls in his upper thighs.  My guess is that he weighs 9.5 pounds from his rate of gaining weight and how much he last weighed. 

He has been working on smiling lately, yesterday I got a few smiles out of him while he was looking at me.  A couple of them were during a singing of "this is the song that never ends".  Usually he just smiles in his sleep but now they are actually him responding to my smile.  He also likes to do the half smile often. 

He still has not rolled over again but when he does tummy time he really rocks his hips back and forth.  He is getting better at holding his head up but no where near to doing it consistently.  He also is staying a awake more during the day, and starting to sleep longer periods at night, 3-4 hour stretches are becoming more common.  

And here he is at one month:


  1. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Leo, Happy Birthday to you! Love that second photo; is that the half-smile? Can hardly wait to see him again!

  2. Um, that was from Mary (Grammy) in case you couldn't tell.
