Matthew is a Month Old!

I'm not quite sure how it happened, but Matthew has already been here for a month! Everyone always says how fast the time goes, and now I know what they mean! At his one month doctor's appointment he weighed 11 lbs 6 oz and was 23 inches long! Matthew has had lots of new experiences this past month. He has been to several stores and restaurants, gone to church, attended his first concert, had his first real bath, stayed with a babysitter, visited his other baby friends, had lots of visitors, and strolled around downtown Winston-Salem. He has also begun holding up his head during tummy time, tracking things that make sounds, laughing and smiling randomly, and perfecting his "I have a gas bubble" scream. He is only waking up once at night now, and is going right back to sleep afterward which makes his mommy very happy :o) Here are some photos of his recent adventures.

Adventures in Parenting Begin

Brian and I have been making the transition into parenthood the past few weeks. We have learned that babies can fart louder than adults, sometimes they cry for no good reason, and they make really funny faces when they're sleepy. While we are both tired, we are enjoying our new roles and our little man. When we went to the pediatrician on Friday he weighed 9 lbs 12 oz, which was 11 oz more than he was a week ago! Needless to say, he has the eating thing down. It was also great to have my mom here this past week. She was a tremendous help with things around the house, and had the magic touch to make Matthew stop crying! Here are some pictures from the past few weeks.
