{Crew} Just Born/0 Month

Crew will be one month old next week so I thought that I should probably do a 0 month post recap before I do the one month post. 

I took his pictures a few days after we got home from the hospital so these pictures are when he was 8 days old (I think).
Crew is a wonderful addition to our family.

Crew Winton you entered this world on March 02, 2012 and spent 6 days in the NICU for bradycardia and reflux.  You finally were able to come home on March 8th, 2012 and we could not be HAPPIER to have you in our family.

You have blond hair, light eyelashes, and light eyebrows.  You have big blue eyes and adorable kissable lips just like your brother.  You have had beautiful skin color from day one.  You did not have jaundice at all.  
Cruising Crew Stats:
6 pounds 6 ounces at birth
21 inches in length
on March 8th, 2012 when we left the hospital you weighed
6 pounds 1 ounce
and on March 13th, 2012 at your two week check up you weighed
7 pounds
You wear size 0 to 7 pounds from baby Gap or newborn clothes
Size newborn diapers
and tiny tiny socks that don't stay on your feet
You like to be swaddled with arms out just like your brother did when he was a newborn

You are a paci baby, but you only really use it if I am trying to get you to go to sleep at night
Our first night home was wonderful you got up every three hours and went right back to sleep.  It was wonderful and you slept in the nap nanny right next to me.  That way I could hear you breathe.  As for the days following we have good nights and not so good nights.  We have nights where you get up every two hours and you don't go back to sleep right away.  There has been some nights that your mommy only gets an hour of sleep before your next feeding.  But mommy knows this is just a season in newborn life and it will get better.
Your umbilical cord took forever to fall off.  It finally fell off on March 21st, 2012.  That evening we gave you your first official bath in the baby tub. 

Your big brother Grayson loves you to pieces.  He gets so excited when he sees you and wants to hold you all the time.  He also likes to show you his Toy Story friends.  He also likes to drive his cars and tractors on your belly and head... he doesn't understand why he can't do this, but we tell him to be soft with you.  I look forward to seeing you both play together and become best buddies.
Crew you have stolen our hearts and our hearts have expanded for a special love for you.  You are our sweet baby boy and we can't imagine a day without you in it.  But the days and weeks can slow down so you don't grow up so quickly.  I can't believe next week you will be a month old. 

with love,
mommy and daddy

Melissa, Crew is just precious. I know exactly how you feel about time flying too fast. I remember when our second son was born, it seemed each month just came quicker and quicker until he was a year old. I didn't want him to get to be a year old so fast!! Enjoy those two boys---they are so special.
