On Christmas Day, E was one month old! I took this idea from The Terrells – I love the idea of documenting the first year of my baby’s life this way. So here goes!
To eat. This kid would be on the boob all day if he could be! He tries to suck on his hands, clothes, toys, and any skin that comes into contact with him (read: shoulders, chests, hands, cheeks, noses, etc.). He’s very good at it too!
To be sung to. Often when he is crying, singing to him is the only thing that calms him down. We’ve mostly been singing Christmas carols to him; I don’t know what we’ll do when the season is over! And luckily, he doesn’t seem to mind that Mommy is often a little off-key. He likes music as well, but he doesn’t stop and listen to it like he does with our voices.
To be held. E doesn’t like to be put down. He always knows! Even when he’s fast asleep, the minute he is put down, he wakes up. He especially likes to be held really close or up over our shoulders.
To go fast in the car. He cries if we go under 35mph, but once we hit that speed or above, he’s out like a light. Slow down or stop? He’s crying again. Should be interesting when he’s a teenager!
I can’t believe it has been one month already… It has gone by so fast!
