Today at 5:30 PM, Maddux will have been in our lives for four whole weeks. I honestly cannot believe that he is one month old. At this rate, he’ll be a big boy in no time. HAPPY ONE MONTH BIRTHDAY, MADDUX!
Likes: Right now Maddux’s favorite things are eating, being rocked in the rocking chair, being naked, laying on his side or belly, and staring at the fan. He loves our living room fan. I’m pretty sure if push came to shove, he’d easily choose that thing over his parents.
Dislikes: He does not like baths, he hates not being the center of attention, and he is startled by high pitched noises. Loud noises don’t really bother him, but I’ve noticed that he doesn’t like the clanking of the dishes or other “sharp” sounds.
Sleeping: We get two hours at a time at night at best right now. I think he’s going through a growth spurt, because he eats nonstop. He’s always been an eater, but lately he seems ravenous even if he’s just eaten. We think he is already over 11 pounds!
Eating: Like I was saying, homeboy loves to eat! He’s started to spit up more often now, too. How can something so gross be so cute? He gives the best smiles right before he spits up or burps. I can’t wait until his smiles are real.
Playing: He is much more alert during the day now, so we get more opportunities to interact with him. He can track objects now, but I swear he gets frustrated because he can’t reach out and grab them. (I wonder what he’s thinking when I’m shaking his toys in front of him. He’s either thinking I’m insane or that I’m a jerk for taunting him with something he can’t hold.) He also likes to pull my hair. He has a ridiculously strong grip!
And because I happen to think he’s a little bit of a cutie pie, here are some more pictures from today:
We love you Maddux! We can’t wait to watch you grow!
Hope all of y’all are having a great Thursday! Treat yourself to a cupcake or cup of froyo! Afterall, today is a special occasion! 😉
