Somewhere between February 28th and March 1st, Hugh was officially a month old.
The little guy has gained weight, a lot of it, he’s 14 lbs 14 oz now (at 5 weeks)
He’s grown in length and circumference and every other possible direction he can. Unfortunately he is battling his first cold right now, and a bad case of baby acne. But he continues to be a joy of a baby. Not to much of an early riser, he generally sleeps later than his sister in the morning, and when he is sleeping its in great big 3 or 4 hour chunks at a time through the day and night, and going right back to sleep after a quick feed in the mid-night wakings. He is kind enough to time one of his naps or quiet peaceful times with the time each day I have to put Clara down for her nap. Although he’s a bit fussy at dinner time by 8:30 or 9 he’s calm and ready to give his parents some much needed rest and quiet time. And he stays down for the night.
I will have to write more about the thrill of a son and the joy that has been my experience of having two children so far!
