Monkeying Around

Zane is now 4 weeks old and weighs 8 pounds 14 ounces, so he is definitely busy growing. He had his first bottle from Dad on Monday night and although he ended up wearing a lot of it, he took to it easily and I'm sure with a little more practice he'll have no problems with it. Like his parents and grandparents he continues to have some tummy issues, so I am trying a dairy and citrus free diet to see if that helps. Generally he is a very alert and happy guy but you can tell when his tummy is bothering him and it is hard to see him uncomfortable.

He is happiest when he is on the move and out of the house (or is that mom who is happiest when we are on the move and out of the house?). On Wednesday grammy came to visit and we went to see great grandma. Thursday we spent the day with Alice, Hannah, and Hunter. Hunter (who will be 3 on August 9th and told us all about the party he will have complete with "goodie bags") was very concerned about baby Zane queping (puking for those that don't speak little boy) and was certain that the best way to stop a crying baby was to give him to his dad. 6 year old Hannah waited patiently through an entire lunch at the Cheesecake Factory for Zane to wake up and when he finally did right at the end she entertained him in the car back to her house. He loves to look at toys and faces while you talk to him. He spent most of the rest of that visit sleeping on Alice (like the song, he loves a bosom for a pillow).

Currently he is in his typical morning spot - asleep in his sling while I eat breakfast and check into the world via internet. Today we are going to lunch with Megan, Maddon, and Maille. Z loves his lunch dates!

It is so hard to believe that he will be one month old tomorrow! It feels like he was just born yesterday in some respects and then in other ways it feels like he has been here for years. I'll be back this weekend with some official one month pics.


  1. Wow, was that a Cornershop - Brimful of Asha reference?
    Well played...

  2. Love that little monkey man! So cute- and such a social little guy already. Glad you're both enjoying lots of lunch/play dates.
