Aspen Michael: 1 Month
I can hardly believe that you are a month old today. But in some ways, I feel like you've been with us forever. I don't remember life without you. You are such a sweet boy bringing joy to all of us...especially your big sister Adelaide Jane. She loves you so and wants to be near you all the time.
You weighed 9lbs 2oz and measured 21.5 inches long at your two week check-up. My growing big boy! You are so alert and have these big eyes that love to look at the lights and colors all around. You love to move your head, neck, and upper body all around to get a better view. You rolled over from your tummy to your back at 2 1/2 weeks like a champ. You are quite advanced!
You took your first plane ride at 2 1/2 weeks as well to Kentucky. You met all of your cousins and they sure do love you. Big boy cousin Bishop can hardly believe there is another boy around. He loved holding you and whispered "We are going to be partners and best friends forever Aspen. Now hurry up and get big!" It was the sweetest thing ever.
You celebrated your first Father's Day with daddy, mommy, Adelaide, Nana, & Pops. We went to Bear Mountain Lodge for brunch and then walked the zoo hiking trail. You lounged most of the time.
You have had play dates at the park and pool with your buddy Aidan. The two of you sleep most of the time while your big sisters play. You take nightly baths with your big sister and you both enjoy it. She likes to climb in the whale tub with you and rinse you off. You don't seem to mind at all.
You only wake once during the night for a little snack and then head back to sleep a few minutes later. You are eating 5 to 6 ounces of formula every 4 hours during the day. You are a great burper and a great pooper! You don't spit up much at all which is great! You have peed on daddy twice as well as Mimi...not on mommy so keep up the good work! You aren't a fan of diaper changes but love to eat and cuddle.
I love you!
