[Camden] 1 Month

Melt my heart why don't ya?! 

We go to the doctor on Monday for his one month check-up so we find out the official then. My guess is he's pushing 9 lbs!! Looking back at his pictures, he has really filled out this month! 


There was a pretty nasty cold that hit this month, which Dave and Keigan both had. Luckily, Camden and I missed it! I was so nervous that he was going to catch something considering Keigan wouldn't stop giving him kisses and trying to wipe her nose all over him. Poor guy! 


He's 100% on mama's milk & we are doing so well!! I did have a hard time getting my milk to slow down!  I was in so much pain the first 9-10 days and was so engorged that I finally called my lactation consultant for advice. Things finally slowed down and we are at a good place with my supply!  I gave him one bottle so far and I know I need to start giving him more bottles so he can get used to them but it's just so much easier nursing him! 


This chunk is out of newborn sizes already! He's wearing 0-3 month onesies and sleepers! Keigan was in her newborn sizes for 2-3 months so I was expecting the same with him. I can't get over how much bigger he is compared to Keigan at this age. Daddy wants a big, strong hockey player so he's well on his way ;)


He sleeps great at night! The past couple of nights he's been going 4-5 hour stretches but I'm certain they are just a fluke. Normally he will eat every 3-3.5 hours through the night and every 2-3 hours during the day. 


This month we celebrated his first Halloween!! He dressed up as a ninja turtle and was the cutest little turtle I've ever seen!

4 weeks with Camden

 Camden is 4 weeks old today!  & a month old on Friday!! Say what?! 

He is such an easy baby and reminds us so much of Keigan when she was his age! We've had easy babies & for that, I am thankful! 

He is still not a fan of tummy time. When we do have him on his tummy, he just lays there and fusses until we pick him up. He is getting a little more head control and neck strength despite his lack of tummy time! 

It still amazes me how fast they grow! Every night I go through my pictures and cry to Dave how much he's changed in just 4 short weeks! 

He still is sleeping great for me, just waking up twice to eat. He also loves his baths so much more now that we can keep a warm wash cloth over him to keep him warm while I bathe him. 

My mom gave him his first bottle over the weekend & he was not a fan!! He did eat most of it for me but I know he wanted the real thing ;) 

I'll be back later this week with his one month post!

3 weeks with Camden

Our little guy has been growing like a weed ( at least I think so)! I had a moment this past weekend where I thought he was growing right before my eyes! His face is filling out quite nicely and he's getting some chub in those cheeks, which I just love to kiss ;)

He's starting to stay awake for longer periods when he is awake & his big sister LOVES to give him kisses and hold his hands. It's pretty much the most adorable thing ever! 

He's still waking up twice a night to eat, usually 1:30 and 5:30 is when he starts fussing around. We are keeping him awake from 7:30pm until we go to bed, which is usually 9:30-10 so he will sleep all night. So far, it's been working like a charm. 

Cam hates tummy time. I try every day to lay him on his tummy to strengthen his neck muscles but he fusses and cries until he's on his back or someone picks him up. He is moving his head around a lot more & he's so alert and loves to see what's going on around him. 

Camden is seriously the most handsome little boy and we are head over heels for him!

2 Weeks with Camden

Yep, our baby boy is 2 weeks old and can't believe it! He is honestly the best and easiest little boy. If he's fed and has a clean diaper, he's a happy boy! 

We had his first weight check last Thursday. He was 6 lbs 81/2 oz at birth and when we got discharged he was 6lbs 2 oz. At his doctor appointment Thursday he was 6.10lbs. Little chunk gained 8 oz in a week! 

I absolutley love the little sounds & faces he makes when he's sleeping. I find myself staring at him while he's sleeping just hoping to catch a little smile. :) 

His umbilical cord fell off Monday (he was 13 days old) and bath time has been SO much more pleasant. He didn't let out even a whimper while in there. Getting him out of the warm water was a different story. 

He eats about every 2 hours during the day and can go 3-3.5 hours at night. I am still setting my alarm to wake him to eat but I think soon, I'll start letting him wake up and tell me he's hungry. 

I finally braved it this week and took both kids to Target by myself for the first time. The thought of taking two kids to the store totally freaked me out but we did it with no meltdowns and everyone lived! 

Big sister is still doing well with the adjustment. She loves giving him kisses and rubbing his little head. It's the sweetest thing :) 

Happy 2 weeks baby boy! 

We love you to the moon & back!
