Carson- One Month

Carson's Likes: Being held, sleeping up on people's chests, eating, being swaddled with his arms out, laying on your legs when they're propped up, ceiling fans, lights
Carson's Dislikes:
Being naked when getting changed

Not So Sure About: Bathtime

Weight: 10 lbs 5 ounces (he was 7 lbs 6 ounces at his one week checkup and born at 7 lbs 12.7 ounces)
Length: 21.5 inches (he was 21 inches at birth)
Clothing Size: All Newborn
Diaper Size: Newborn
Eating Habits: He is a milk monster-- he will eat every second of the day if I let him.  We are working on the 2 hour time periods between feedings
Sleep: He is not the best sleeper (understandably).  He usually eats at 11, 2, 5 and then cluster feeds in the morning.  Okay for now, but not when I go back to work :\
Accomplishments: Holds his head up like a champ (doctor says he shouldn't be this good until 2 months), has a great latch, puts up with his big brother well so far!

One Month Comparison

We are working on getting Carson's' first month blog post up (need to take the pictures still) but to hold you over, here are the first four week pictures.  For fun, I included Bennett's first four weeks as well!  To me, they look pretty different, but Jason swears that they look very similar.  What do you think?

Twenty Two Months

Bennett's Likes: Watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, puzzles on the tablet or Mommy's iPad, walks, going to the park, color water (Mio in his water), sitting at the table, his brother (most times)
Bennett's Dislikes:
The bath tub-- he pooped in it twice and now is terrified of taking a bath, watching certain iMovies that I've made (if the background music is too "sad" he cries), sitting in his highchair

Not So Sure About: Getting his diaper changed, when he poops in his diaper, he grabs it to tell you that he needs changed (even though he doesn't want to be changed),

Weight: We think he's between 27-29 pounds, the scale hasn't been consistent!
Length: --
Clothing Size: All 24 month clothes
Diaper Size: Still in size 4 Swaddlers during the day, size 5 baby dry at night
Eating Habits: He isn't eating too much lately-- he will ALWAYS eat fruit, but isn't interested in much other food
Sleep: He has been sleeping in since I'm on maternity leave-- he usually sleeps 9-9 now
He loves being a big brother, if Carson cries, he brings him a pacifier, giving kisses, says mail, more please, blue and make a siren sound for a fire truck, counting by making sounds in the tone of 1-2-3
