Aiden at One Month Old

 July 2nd marked our little guy's one month birthday!
Some days it feels like he has been with us forever and some days we really feel his "brand-newness" to our life (a.k.a. some days we are a CLUSTER you-know-what around here!).
But everyday, we are falling more and more in love with him and feeling so blessed to have been given the gift of having him.
As I expected, life with three kiddos is an adjustment but I know we will find our new normal and in the meantime, I am taking it day by day and soaking up this time.
We are in constant amazement at how much Aiden resembles Kennedy as a baby...
genes are so crazy!  
Aiden at four weeks old (above) and Kennedy at four weeks (below)
... I mean... REALLY?!?!
It looks like the SAME kid!

A few favorite snapshots over the past week or two...

Snuggles with mommy...
I have spent a lot of the past month doing just this.
Seriously... soaking. him. up.
 Awake time with Daddy...
Noticing his reflection in the swing...
 Hanging with me in the Ergo baby carrier...


A few details about Aiden at one month (for my own memory!):
- 8 lbs, 11 oz at his one month check-up! (up from 6 lbs, 5 oz at his newborn well-check, wow!)
- 21 inches long at his one month check-up (up from 19.5 inches at his newborn well-check)
- Drinking 4-5 oz of formula about every 3 hours
- Waking up every 3 hours to eat at night (in process of transitioning from the rock'n play to the bassinet).
- Minor case of acid reflux so we keep him upright for 15 minutes or so after each feeding
- Loves his pacifier (just like his sisters did!)
