One month old

Today my sweet little Finn turned one month old.  His personality has become more clear the last few weeks and we are all getting excited to discover more about him as he becomes more awake and aware.  He is a good baby, he doesn't cry much and is pretty easily appeased.  He is very aware of his surroundings and spends a good part of the day alert and observing the chaos around him.  He is not a bad sleeper and doesn't have his days and nights confused, but he is a bit of a night owl and doesn't settle well until around 11 and then is up a few times including a longer span between 3 and 5.  If he was my only child it would be no problem since he likes to sleep late until 9 or so, but sadly Teagan is up before 7 every day and the big kids also have to get up for school, so I am a little sleep deprived.  I am working on getting him on a schedule for bed, and moving up his sleep time to closer to 9 with his awake time being around midnight or 1 since I can work with that better and get more sleep once he settles.  Thankfully all my kids were night owls so we have done this many times before and within a few weeks it all works out.

Finn had his one month check up today and is up to 10 lbs 11 ozs and 22 inches, that is a gain of over 2 lbs and 2 inches since he was born a month ago...yippee for nursing!
