1 Month Old

Rhett is one month old. We can't believe how fast it's gone and at the same time how long ago the hospital feels. We are more in love with this little boy than ever.

At one month...

Things you love:

  • Eating
  • Sleeping
  • Cuddling with mom and dad (you especially love to put your cheek against ours when you're resting on our shoulder. If we pull away, you snuggle back in. It's my favorite. :) 

  • Listening to us sing
  • Going on walks in your stroller or carrier
  • Having your legs pulled up like a frog. (We're sad that you're growing out of this you like stretching all the way out.)
  • Loungin' on my nursing pillow
  • Taking warm baths
  • Tummy Time (for the first 10 minutes)
  • Peeing on your mom and dad
  • Dancing
  • Being swaddled
  • Having your head covered with a blankie

  • Listening to music in your swing
  • Arching your head back when Dad is holding you so everything is upside down? We're not quite sure why you love that one. 
  • Being with your Grandparents
  • Partyin with Pops (playing with daddy when he gets home from work)

Things you don't like:
  • Sponge baths
  • Being hot (you take after your dad)
  • Being hungry (also comes from your dad)
  • Being sleepy 
  • Getting your picture taken

  • Diaper changes
  • Getting woken up every three hours to eat. So glad we don't have to do that anymore! (You take after your Godmother Minds on that one)
  • Loud noises
  • Gas
  • Driving in the car for too long

Things We LOVE about you
  • When you smile in your sleep
  • When you chuckle in your sleep
  • Your sneezes and the cute sound you make when the sneeze doesn't quite make it out
  • Your hiccups
  • Your snore
  • Your big curious eyes

  • Your big lips and how you seem to want to give kisses (really you're just bobbing your head around, but it's really fun to think you're giving kisses)
  • The faces you make when you're falling asleep or waking up

  • The way you love to look up at us and want to play
  • The little noises you make (even if it's at 3:00 in the morning)
  • How sweet you are
  • How patient you can be (sometimes you choose not to be)
  • The way you sigh after we help calm you down
  • Everything!
Happy 1 Month Rhett. We love you!!

  1. What a delightful post. I wish I had a list like that for every one of my sweeties. It was so nice to be able to meet the little man we'd only seen pictures of. As cute in real life as he is in his photos. Love you Rhett!
