One Month.

(This was supposed to be published yesterday but wasn't because our power was out. So happy one month, one day birthday to Otto!)

Already?! Wow.
Before I learned that the camera needs to be on the 'green square' setting. Over exposed, but he's handsome anyway.

At one month Otto is: (Awesome, but also doing all this neat stuff...)

Tracking people and toy with his eyes.
Purposefully smiling at his Mommy:)
Loves bath time.
Is happiest when he is naked and outside. (This worries me for the future.)
Is a ridiculously noisy eater. And aggressive. (I call him a boobie parraniha.)
Is very active and challenges himself with how long he can stay awake. His record is four and a half hours.
Can scoot himself up your chest or across the floor if he has something to push off of. Looks like a little frog:)
Sleeps holding his ear, especially when he is tired or upset.
Is still sleeping in bed with us, in his co-sleeper.
Adores the picture hanging above the couch. Red poppies are super exciting. Also the ceiling fan is a big attraction.
Sleeps in three and six hours segments at night. Sometimes waking up at 1:30am, but always waking up at 4:30 am.
Is beginning to drool on everything.
Loves to listen. He will turn his head to find the cause of a sound. Music in the car is his favorite.
Will take a pacifier, but generally only when in the car seat.
Is nursing every three to four hours during the day.
Burps like a man. Think Peter Cooke. 
Is holding his head up for five to ten seconds at a time.
Is just now ready to wear size one diapers and 0-3 month clothes. (*noisy sobbing*)
LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to bounce on the yoga ball. 

To celebrate reaching this milestone we had lunch with Chris downtown. (I picked it up on the way in and we ate in his office. No angry phone calls about germs please Michael and Abbey!) Our power was out due to a thunder storm and so getting out of the house was nice. All of Otto's toys had batteries, but mine did not:)
Sonic and baby dancing for lunch!
He loved the new environment, he was very serious and studied everything--loved all the activity on the walk back to the car.
We go to the pediatrician for a growth/weight check next Monday!


  1. It doesn't "need to be on the green square" it just needs to be on the green square until I can show you how to work the other settings ;P

    I'm saying 13 pounds and 24 inches.

  2. Awww! I can't believe it's been a month! I told ya it flies! :) And believe it or not, I feel like it's going even faster now, which is just the saddest thing ever.

    Adorable pics, you look fabulous, by the way!
