Hugh's First Month (and Photos)

Last Thursday marked Hugh's one month birthday. It's really hard to believe.

He now weighs 10 pounds 5 ounces. (40th percentile) 

He is 23 inches tall. (70th percentile)

His head is 39 centimeters. (95th percentile)

He still has his raspy cry. He loves to be held. He has some 3-4 hour stretches of sleep during the night, but also has his fair share of 2 hour stretches. It isn't rare for him to nurse for an hour at a time, every other hour. We clearly get a lot of one-on-one time! The more we get a glimpse of his personality the more we see what a sweet little guy he is.

Hugh and Ben continue to have their cute moments together. This past Sunday when it was just the three of us for a little bit, Hugh had a moment when he got really fussy. I was trying to burp Ben so that I could tend to Hugh and Ben kept twisting his body around to look at Hugh, with what looked like a concerned look on his face. I laid them down close by each other and Ben reached over and very gently rubbed the top of Hugh's head.

They are too cute for words.

Those photos (above) are from two weeks ago.

Here are a few from our walk this morning.

Before the walk:

After the walk:

It's hard to believe Ben used to be as tiny as Hugh... and hard to believe that in just a couple of months that Hugh will be as big as Ben. For now, I'm taking one day at a time... not only does it keep me from getting too overwhelmed, but it also helps me to live in the moment. And, that is something that means so much to me right now.

It's hard to think of a better moment to live in than this one right now.

Oh, Meg. They are so precious and beautiful. R and I are so happy for your and Marc.

We are hoping to make it back in November for Thanksgiving/Jaz's Baptsim. Mind if we stop in and say hello if it all works out?
