PCK: One Month Old!

Today is the first day of May. I cannot believe how quickly time has gone by. Parker couldn't believe it either when I told him:

So I am just a tad bit late posting that our sweet, precious son turned one month old on April 18th. In so many ways it feels like yesterday that he was born, but we have made countless memories in that time, and Parker has changed so much!

One Month Update:

Our little man just loves to eat – every one to three hours to be exact! At his one-month check-up, Parker weighed in at 10 lbs. 3oz., a full three pounds heavier than when we took him home from the hospital! He’s measuring 22 ¼ inches long, placing him in the 70th percentile for height and 40th for weight. His head falls into the 70th percentile; we figure it’s because of his big brain! : )

Dear Parker,
You have grown so much in your very first month in this world! The first time we put you in your car seat, you looked so tiny in it! Now, you are filling it out much better. You love eating (all momma’s milk) and when you are done you raise your head and purse your lips with your chubby cheeks puffed out; it’s the cutest thing. You continue to be tall and skinny like your daddy, and are getting too long for your newborn onesies! You still wear newborn diapers, though. Daddy is so good to you and changes your dipeys all the time when he’s home, and all through the night, too. He hands you to me for middle-of-the-night feedings and each time I think you are the most precious thing I’ve ever seen. You are getting stronger and stronger and you move your arms all around now. You are also holding your head up for some seconds at a time, and are giving us smiles every day. We can’t get enough of them! I love when you lift your eyebrows and your tiny forehead wrinkles, and I love the sweet little coos you make while you’re sleeping. We both love holding you while you sleep, and you especially love being on daddy’s chest. He can always calm you down when you are fussy with his nice deep voice, or with walks by the fish tank. Mommy and daddy love you so much. We are still in awe of how perfect you are, and we still can’t believe we get to keep you!

Love, Momma and Daddy 


  1. Mande,
    You were born to be a mommy. Your son is beyond darling, adorable, handsome and precious. I hope I can get out to Arizona this summer for sure and visit with you and your little pumpkin!

    Karen :-)

  2. That is amazing that he has gained so much just from breast milk! Keep up the good work, you're giving him the best start to life.
