One Month Already!


Today Preston is celebrating his one month birthday! We went to his pediatrician yesterday for his one month check-up and all was good. He has grown in length 2 inches, and is now 22.5 inches long, and weighs 10 lbs 9 ounces! He is in the 75% percentile for both. His head measured at 15 inches, which is average. The doctor said he is on track and he looked perfect!

Of course to us, he is perfect too! Preston is starting to become more aware of his surroundings. At times he will track an object in front of him, and he loves to look at lights and bright objects. He is also doing well holding his head up. He is so much bigger than Bennett was at this age...in fact he is almost where Bennett was at 3 months...she weighed 12 lbs and was 23 inches long then. Due to his appetite being so great, he doesn't usually make it much past 4 hours before he is just starving, so I doubt he will be sleeping through the night at 6 weeks like Bennett, but I am remaining optimistic!
