1 Month Connor

We had a weight check for Connor today, and as it turns out, our little guy is not-so-little. He weighed in at 9lbs, 13 oz and laid 21 inches long! Seeing as he left the hospital at 6 lbs, 8 oz, this is just amazing (and a little shocking).



My arms must be extra comfy, because that seems to be the only place Connor will sleep. I have days when I wake up groggy and grouchy (if you can say "wake up" since I don't really sleep), but one look at those big, bright eyes and its like I downed a shot of expresso-- instantly awake and functioning.

I'm also happy to report that Riley is warming up to Connor. I occasionally ask her to help me pat his back to burp him or put his onesie in the hamper when I change him and I think it makes her happy to be involved. She will now blow him kisses when she leaves for school. I am beyond happy about this improvement.


I have to admit that I have totally forgotten how draining the newborn stage is. I haven't laid in my bed for more than 2 hours at a time, and sometimes those 2 hours are a treat. But I look at Riley and how fast she's grown up and I am trying my best to just cherish these times that Connor is a cuddly little baby.
