Curtis is 1 month!

I can't believe it but Curtis is now officially one month old. It is so exciting having a second child because I get to experience all of the "first" a second time and am generally a lot more relaxed while doing it!

At one month Curtis is a bit more fussy than I remember his older brother being at this stage. We started him two weeks ago on baby Zantac for acid reflux because he's thrown up several times and frequently gags/looks like he is having acid burn the back of his throat. I'm not yet sure how much the medicine is helping but it isn't hurting... so we'll probably stay on it for at least awhile longer.

Curtis is a champion nurser. He was on a very regular hour and a half nursing schedule at night with a few longer sleep sessions during the day. However, not to curse myself, but it seems that he has started to have at least two longer sleeping sessions during the night (between two and two and a half hours) which have definitely helped me in terms of lack of sleep. He is definitely growing/gaining weight. We have a doctor's appointment on Thursday and I am looking forward to seeing how much he weighs at just a little over a month post-birth.

Curtis has just started to focus on faces and I'm expecting smiles to be right around the corner. Most of the time he is content to hang out in someone's arms. He is not a fan of being put down and will only sleep for short periods of time in his bassinet or swing (very similar to his brother!). Every once in awhile he gets fussy being held and then a short amount of time laying on a blanket stretching out helps to make everything better!

Here are a few photos from the last month:
I don't know how to rotate this photo :)  But here is one of the first open eye shots from the month.

Tiny fingers!

Curtis is going to be a finger chewer!

"What did you say?" Splayed fingers

This is the first time Wesley asked to hold his baby brother (please ignore Mommy's hair!)

"Oh, it's all just too much!" He loves to have his hands on his head.

Looking much more alert!
