Back on February 15, Ryder was 1 Month old!
He didn't have his 1 month check-up until the 21st, so almost an entire week later. But we did go to a Breastfeeding Support Group on the 18th where they weighed him. On Tuesday, the 18th, he weighed 11 lbs, 12 oz. Then I fed him and learned that he ate about 4.5 ounces in a feeding (or at least in that feeding). On Friday, the 21st, at his 1 month check up he weighed 12 lbs, 5 oz. On Tuesday, he had just woken up from a 3-hr nap and hadn't eaten yet; on Friday, he had eaten before we went to the doctor's office.
He measured 22.25" at his doctor's appointment. So he is definitely a growing boy! He can lift his head up pretty well. He has started making eye contact, although he isn't smiling yet - social smiles, he sometimes smiles when he poohs & in his sleep, but not as a reaction to people around him. But he should start doing that within the next few weeks.
Loving this little boy.
