1 month old


Seriously, it's been over a month since my little dude was born! He's no longer a newborn. Deacon is changing and growing every day! He's 85th percentile for head circumference, 81st for height, and 30th for weight. Yep, he's our tall, big headed, skinny boy. I saw his first real smile on Sept 28th. He smiles occasionally and it melts my heart every time. He's been lifting his head for a few weeks, and he can hold it upright for a few seconds now and move it side to side. He makes eye contact with faces and objects. He gets pretty gassy sometimes and throws some crazy fits, poor guy. He has peed on his changing table and all over me, many, many times. His sleep at night is pretty random still, but we've had some good nights with 5-7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. His left foot twitches as he falls asleep. He loves to sleep on his daddy's chest. We're pretty sure he has a dairy sensitivity. I've been trying my best to avoid it, it's nearly impossible! Almost every food label has some sort of dairy byproduct in it. And have I mentioned how much I love dairy?! It's worth a happy baby though. A few times while I've been changing his diaper, I've watched him frantically grab at the air and he gets a hold of his own hair and screams soooo loud like someone's hurting him. I have to pry his little fingers away. It's a little sad, but mostly funny. He loves music, especially when his daddy sings to him. One of his favorite songs is The Imperial March (the dirty diaper song). He has the best sneeze ever. He does a sneeze, then the cutest sigh afterwards. We've been trying to catch it on video, which is not an easy task. I caught the end of one here...

Sorry to go on and on about him, but I want to be able to remember all these little things. Pretty much, he's the cutest kid and we couldn't love him more. He's super sweet, and he really brings so much love and joy into our home and our family. 

Here are a few outtakes from his 1 month photos.
