Has it been a whole month already?

Today Matthew is one month old. I can hardly believe it! We tried to get a nice family shot, but this was the best we could do. I love the way Matt looks at his Daddy.
He has grown so much this month but still fits in newborn clothes. The 0-3 month outfits are just a bit big still. We have a doctor appointment on Wednesday so I'll report on his stats then.
He is much more alert during his awake times, which are longer and more frequent. He loves to look around outside. What an adorable profile!
We still have not solved this rash mystery, although things are looking a bit better. The rash on his face is not as bright red and not entirely covering his skin. The diarrhea has let up even though the diaper rash remains. He still fusses after eating and when he has to dirty a diaper. Remember the days when crying three times was abnormal? Oh how I miss those days. Now he cries pretty much whenever he's awake. And even in his sleep. He prefers to sleep in my arms, and for now, if that's what it takes to comfort him, so be it. Today after his bath his hair began to show what I think is its true personality. The back would not straighten out or lay flat for anything. I do believe we have a curly haired boy in the making. (Sorry Mom, I know this was something you hoped to avoid passing on to him.)

Happy one month birthday Matty! I love you!

Time goes by so much faster once little bunchkins come into the picture. He's such a cute little boy. I'm with Rachel, that little guy made me miss little guys... mine are getting so big!
