Aaron at 1 month

Aaron had his one month old appt today. Here are his stats for memory:
Weight: 9lbs 10.5oz (10-25th percentile)
Length: 23" (75th percentile)

So he's gained two pounds and two inches since he left the hospital. (7lbs 9oz, 21")

He's had baby acne for about a week now. Seems to have gotten it worse than the first two boys. But it also varies during the day on how red it actually is. Today Dr. Rao said we could put some steroid cream (hydrocortisone) on it if we wanted, but nothing is really needed to help it. Just has to take its course and its not painful to him.

Everything else checked out good and healthy. :)

He seems to be even more attentive to me than the other boys were. Instead of looking around or off in the distance, he's always got his eyes on me. He's even started to respond to me but scrunching his eyes, and forming his mouth into a smile. You can really tell he is responding to me, and it's not just coincidence.
Sleeping really well at night (for a 4 week old). Wakes up to nurse every 3-4 hours, sometimes even 5 hours. And is good about going back to sleep. He's awake for about an hour at a time, and usually 2 or 3 times during the day.
