One Month Old!

Sam is one month old today!  He's growing so fast.  Some recent developments:
  •  He has just outgrown newborn size clothing (with the exception of a couple outfits), and as of a week and a half ago, no longer fits in newborn size diapers comfortably.
  • He is great at holding his head up and moving it back and forth to look around, although sometimes when he's tired he bobs his head all over the place.  He also does this when he's hungry...we call it "bobbing for boobie" LOL
  • He takes baths in his tub now and LOVES IT!
  • His very worst enemy in this world is the aspirator.  He screams bloody murder when you suck boogers out of his nose.  
  • Sam LOVES car rides and falls asleep instantly when you pull out of the driveway.
  • He loves background noise when he sleeps...this kid could sleep through a tornado.  Before Sam got here we were worried about Chandler's piercing howl and if it would wake the baby...HE DOESN'T EVEN FLINCH!  LOL  On the flip-side...as soon as it's silent, he wakes up.  This means lots of nights camped on the couch with the t.v. on so Mommy can catch a few Z's.  Daddy also downloaded some "womb sound" noises that seem to do the trick too.
  • If you put your hand or a toy in front of his face and move it back and forth, he'll follow it with his eyes and will turn his head. 
  • His favorite place to be interacted with is on his changing table.  He loves getting his diaper changed and is happiest when on his changing table.
  • He's starting to show interest when you talk to him.  His eyes get very big when you're talking to him or show him a toy.  My baby is no longer a newborn vegetable!  Hooray!!!
Things we're looking forward to:
  •  Cooing
  • Smiling
  • Giggling
  • And SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!  ;)
Here are some pictures from his first day as a one month old!
