When I was pregnant every mom I met told me to enjoy my baby because they grow up so fast. I didn’t believe them. Especially during the first couple of weeks that dragged on and on. But now I realize they were so right. I honestly cannot believe my little guy is already a month old. He has already gotten so big and strong. At his doctor’s appointment last Friday he weighed 10 pounds, 10 ounces! That’s close to 3 pounds in 3 and a half weeks (he weight 8 pounds, 3 ounces but then went down to 7 pounds, 9 ounces the day after he was born). His personality is really starting to show too. Here are some of Brayden Bittel’s likes and dislikes:
His big brother Hauggy
Walks in his stroller
His UCLA mobile
Tummy time with Daddy
All his grandparents
Kisses from his Mommy
Getting his picture taken
Baths (although he did have his first bath two days ago where he didn’t cry!)
I don’t want to jinx it, but I think we’re starting to get him on a schedule! I’ve been working really hard the past couple of days to implement it and although we’ve had some tears I think it’s going to make Brayden a happier baby and Chuck and I happier (and better rested) parents. Last night he only woke up to eat twice and didn’t cry or fuss at all! That’s a huge accomplishment!
So happy birthday to my Brayden Bittel! I love my little guy more than words could ever express and I can’t wait to see what life with him brings next!
I bought this chair at an antique store this past weekend. I’m going to be taking Brayden’s picture with it every month to see how much he grows!
