Cohen has hit the one month mark and I can’t believe how fast the time has passed. Of course, when you’re counting in weeks it makes sense that it would go by quickly.
Life with a new baby has certainly taken some getting used to. Luckily, from day one this little nugget has slept through the night. It is seriously crazy and I have to remind AJ that we definitely lucked out.
The very first night he slept from 2 AM until 10 AM. Now with the time change it’s about 10 PM until 6 AM. Of course, 6 in the morning is pretty early in my book but I’ll take all those glorious hours of sleep, 6 AM or not.
AJ has been an absolute dream because the first two weeks he handled the really early morning hours making bottles and letting me sleep in until 9 AM. Now that he’s back at work I’m on mommy duty most of the time. He still comes home from work though and immediately takes the boy from me, giving me a few hours of arm freedom.
Cohen has been a really great baby. He randomly smiles at times and it is literally my favorite thing. His little baby coos are so cute too and I really need to record on video somehow.
I change his clothes about 3 times a day, haha, and he can’t stand to be wet so sometimes 3 diaper changes in one hour. It is so fun to cuddle with him though and I could stare at him sleep all day long, haha!
He’s not too enthused about binkys but we’re getting there. I really like the idea of a substitute for eating because I am pretty positive he would eat all day long if I let him.
I’m not really sure what else to say, haha! I want to document all the little things but I am completely blank.
During bath time he is very stoic. He just looks up at me quite unsure about what is going on, much like his week 1 picture. He doesn’t seem to love it or hate it so I tell him the bath is nice and warm whenever he’s in it so hopefully he’ll grow to enjoy it instead of dread it.
I’ve braved my way to the store with him a few times and it is quite stressful, I won’t lie. On a trip to Target, he started to fuss and I just busted out of there as quickly as I could.
The other day in Walmart I carried him in his carseat but wore a wrap just in case. When he started crying part way through I put him into the wrap and bounced him straight through the check out line. I’d say that trip was a success but I basically avoid going to the store if I can help it.
I can’t wait until it gets warmer and I can take him out without being worried about bundling him up. It’ll be fun to see how he grows and changes. I literally can’t wait to do more things with him and teach him about everything!
