Griffin is 1 month

I have no clue where this first month has gone!


It has been wild! Little man got a fever when he was 3 weeks which resulted in a late night trip to the ER (which required a spinal, IV, x-ray, and other poking and prodding). His white blood cell count was up so they admitted him while they ran spinal and blood cultures to rule out the big bad stuff (meningitis, infection etc). The cultures came back clear but he took several days to kick the fever so we had a fun stay in the hospital for 4 days. It was scary for this mommy and hard to juggle being at the hospital, breastfeeding, getting things done at home and making sure Brooklyn had plenty of love and attention too. The staff in the children’s wing at the hospital were beyond incredible!



He is probably the only baby who was admitted to the hospital and gained weight lol her are his stats as of yesterdays follow up appt.


Weight: 9lbs 7 oz!! (up almost 2 lbs from birth weight!)
Length: 20 3/4 inches

He’s eating great- breastfeeding isn’t fun- but it’s going better than it did with Brooklyn. So far he’s been a pretty good sleeper but we are still working on him consistently getting a good 5 or so hour stretch at night maybe in the next few weeks we’ll exceed the “4 hour sleep at night” mark. I’d be so grateful if he could do that before I go back to work! He just outgrew his newborn footie pj's - a few of the NB onesies still fit though. He's moved on to 3 month clothes but they are still a little big.

He’s a strong little bugger and can hold his head up for quite a while and can roll on his side during activity mat time! He’s happy unless he’s getting his diaper changed – then he turns into a tornado siren and can be heard I’m sure for blocks. He’s also not a huge fan of bath time yet but I’m hoping he’ll come around when we start getting more regular with bath time. 

Brooklyn likes to greet him each morning and gives him kisses and always wants to know where he is. She also is learning to be gentle with brother (her patting is sometimes a little harsh). He's our sweet little old man and we are loving watching him grow and change each day!
