Tate hit his one month mark last week, so it was time for a few pictures! I chose a bad time to take pictures because Tate fell asleep about 30 seconds after I pulled out my camera, but oh well.
Tate has been a really sweet baby this first month. He's a great eater and a pretty good sleeper. He nurses at 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm, 7 pm, 10 pm, and then he has one nighttime feeding at 3 am. He is a super speedy eater, so it only takes him ten minutes to nurse. The good thing is that it doesn't take long to nurse him, the bad thing is that he gulps so fast that it makes him spit up a lot afterwards. Mya rarely spit up, but Bryn and Tate are kindred spirits in their crazy spitting up! Poor Tate spits up all day, but hopefully he'll outgrow it like Bryn did.... after 8 long months!
Tate is drowsy in these pictures, but he has actually been getting more and more alert. He's usually awake for an hour after each feeding and he loves to be propped up so he can look around the room. He's also just started making little "goo" and "gaa" noises, which is just so cute.
The girls are loving Tate and it's been fun to see their excitement about him. For the most part, we are adjusting to life as a family of five and we're figuring out our new routine. It's busy and I'm still getting used to functioning on less sleep, but it's a wonderful time with this new little guy.
We sure love you, Tate!
And here is the comparison of Bryn, Mya, and Tate at one month old.
