One Month

Bennett Scott is one month old already!


Bennett's Likes: Cuddles, being swaddled at night, fuzzy sleepers and blankets, farting, burping, shaking my head like a "shark" at my pacifier or bottle, fans, lights on the ceiling and out the window, my swing, my Wubbanub, sleeping with my mouth open, rolling my eyes back in my head when I sleep, starting to coo, smiling with half of my face at my Mom and Dad.

Bennett's Dislikes: Being naked, being too hot or cold

Not so sure about: Bath time (verdict is still out on that one, but I do take my baths pretty seriously)

Weight: 10 pounds 6 ounces (62%)
Length: 23 inches (91%)
Clothing Size: 0-3 Months
Diaper Size: Newborn

4 Weeks

It is absolutely crazy to think that my little bugaboo will be one month old tomorrow!  We have been doing weekly pictures, and will continue monthly pictures once we hit tomorrow :-)

The last month has been so bittersweet and full of emotions.  I have experienced nights in the beginning where I just cried and cried worrying something may happen to our baby in his sleep (please tell me I'm not the only crazy one) or just cried watching Jason with his son.  He has been absolutely amazing with him.  Since he didn't grow up around babies like I did, he was nervous, but he has absolutely blown me away by how great he is with Bennett and how much he loves him.  I can't tell you how many times a day I hear "he is seriously the most gorgeous baby alive" or "he makes me so happy."  Of course the lack of sleep was something to get used to, but we seem to have gotten a plan down with night routines and feedings, so it hasn't been too bad.  Once school starts I may change my mind, haha.

I will try to post monthly updates and pictures, but for now, here is the progression of our sweet boy from Week 1 to Week 4.  These pictures are so special to us but break our hearts at the same time when we see how fast he's grown.

B with his Visitors

Bennett is a very, very loved little boy who has lots of visitors in the past three weeks.  We did our best to get pictures of everyone who came to visit, but of course I'm sure we missed some.  To those of you who came and brought dinner, snacks, or even just extra hands to support us, we truly appreciate it.
