My bumpdates were my favourite blog posts to write. So naturally I can not wait to get started on Calvin's monthly updates. I still can't believe that he has already been with us for a month! (give or take a couple days) He has such a sweet personality, and completes our family.
Sleep: Calvin has been such an incredible sleeper since day one. For the first 2 weeks he would sleep 3-4 hour stretches at night, and now he goes 6-8 which has been such a blessing for Alex and I!
Feeding: For the first 2 weeks, breastfeeding was a nightmare. It hurt, he wasn't latching on properly, and all in all I was not enjoying it. Luckily we have both gotten the hang of it now, and become super comfortable with it.
Clothing: 3 month clothing fits him perfectly, along with size 1 diapers (newborns lasted for about a week on him before he outgrew them). He'll probably last another couple weeks in them before going up in a size.
Movement (baby development): Believe it or not, on April 25th he rolled from his tummy to his back. My mother in law and I were only ones who were there to see it and we were completely speechless. Since he is a pretty big boy, it isn't difficult for him to hold his head up for long periods of time and just look around.
Likes: Tummy time, sucking on pinkies, baths, car rides, being swaddled
Dislikes: (1) Soothers. He loves to suck, but still gets pretty frustrated when he tries to latch on to a soother. Luckily he doesn't need to be sucking on something in order to fall asleep, so he really doesn't need a soother for the time being. (2) Baby wraps/carriers. Calvin loves movement, so he prefers to be in a stroller. He doesn't mind being in a carrier, as long as we are constantly moving or he is asleep.
Other: We went on our first little trip to Palmyra this past weekend and Calvin was such a gem! Slept during the car rides, and let mommy do some shopping while daddy carried him around in a wrap.
