Happy 1 Month Kase Bradley!



Dear Kase,

I cannot believe you have been here with us for one month already!  It feels like yesterday you were moving and kicking around in my belly.  You have been such an amazing baby.  We are so blessed to have you in our lives.  I could hold you and stare at you all day long.  You are such a beautiful little boy.  You are perfect.  I can still say you are beautiful for awhile yet.  I know I'm your Mommy, but I really do think you're the cutest little boy I've ever seen :)

I am constantly kissing you on your forehead and telling you how much I love you.  I must do this as much as I can now because before I know it you will be wiping away my kisses.  We've had kind of a crazy month and I had to be away from you for a couple of days, which broke my heart.  But you are such a good baby and were so good for Daddy and your Grandma's.

I am going to document everything about you here on this blog so we can look back at it some day and laugh about all the silly things Mommy made you do or wear.  I will try to do a post each month for you like I did with your big sister.  But you two keep me really busy so forgive me if I miss a month or two.  I can't wait to see you two grow up together and be best friends.  And even though you are younger than her, I know you will always protect her.

I can't wait to see what the next month will bring.  I love you so much buddy!

Love, Mommy



STATS
(as of your two week appointment on 9/10)
Weight: 9 lbs 4 oz
Height: 21 inches
Diaper Size: 1
Clothes Size: Newborn clothes are too small and packed away.  Some 0-3 months fit and some are too small.  3 month stuff fits the best right now.
Shoe Size: Not wearing shoes yet
Eye Color: Blue (I hope they stay blue, but Daddy's hoping they'll change so he's not the only one without blue eyes in the family)
Hair Color: Light brown
Next Doctor Appointment: October 30th (2 months old)


SLEEP/DAILY ROUTINE
 We usually feed you around 8:30 pm, swaddle you up, hold/rock you to sleep and lay you down in your crib.  You sleep until about 12:30 am when you're ready to eat again and get a diaper change.  You go back down around 1:30.  You're up again around 4:30 for a diaper change and feeding and back down about 5:30.  You and your sister usually get up around the same time at 8:00 am.  I'm not sure which one wakes the other up, but it's pretty funny that you both get up at the exact same time almost exactly at 8:00.  I feed you first and then you hang out on your floor mat or in your swing while I get your sister up and fed.  I also get myself ready for the day and try to eat some breakfast.  Usually by the time I do all this you've had enough and are ready to be held again.  You're starting to be awake a little more now, but still take little naps here and there throughout the day.  I try to have you nap in your crib when Kyla naps so I can either get some rest myself or get some things done around the house.


EATING
You are eating 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours during the day and 3-4 hours at night.


FIRSTS
Day 4 - First doctor appointment
Day 6 - Umbilical cord fell off
Day 7 - Newborn pictures
Day 10 - First trip to Target (You will soon learn that this is one of Mommy's favorite things to do)
Day 19 - First bath in your little tub


OTHER TIDBITS
*You do not enjoy riding in your car seat.
*You have peed on both Mommy and Daddy.  Mommy puts a wipe over you just in case now, but even that wasn't enough one time.
*You love to stare at the pictures on the wall behind the couch.
*You like to sleep with your right hand up by your face.
*You have very strong neck muscles and head control already.
*You always need Mommy right when I'm ready to sit down to eat with Daddy and Kyla.
*You are starting to like your nuk more and getting better at keeping it in your mouth.


Your sister wanted in on the photo shoot.
