My Mush: 1 Month

Welcome to the FIRST monthly onesie photo for HG.  I stuck with the same overall 'onesie' theme from K's weekly photos but with a few changes. Instead of a fantastic headband/bow and a different background fabric every week, little man will be using the same grey chevron background in each photo but sporting a different dapper bowtie every month. I'm already loving the way this first photo turned out and can't wait to snap lots of photos every month! And in case you were wondering, YES I will be making a quilt with squares that represent each botwie I already have squares set aside for the bowties I've already made. {In case you missed my instagram post of the quilt I made K, check it out here. I finally got it done and turned it into her BIG SISTER gift when we brought mush home.}

What do you think of the new layout? I'll also be keeping things short and sweet each month because, let's be honest, who has time?

On to me gushing about my son. My little mush is 1 month old! Seriously, how can that be? Oh yeah, notice the nickname? When I was pregnant with K I called her 'little manatee' and then 'the bean' once she arrived because of how she loved curling up like a little bean whenever I'd hold her. I wasn't surprised in the least that HG inspired two nicknames as well, 'pumpkin' when I was pregnant {thanks to my pregnancy announcement} and now I love calling him 'mush' because... well, he's just so mushy and wonderful!

Here are some 1 month stats:

  • nurses like a CHAMP - hence the adorably delicious arm rolls
  • sounds like a cat when he really gets crying
  • has hulk-like strength when it comes to holding his head up
  • loves bath time and the post-bath hair dryer time
  • wakes up 1-2 times a night
  • loves sleeping on mommy or daddy's chest
  • smiles all the time
  • giggles, snores, and gurgles in his sleep - this kid is like his own little orchestra
  • loves getting kisses from his big sister
  • squeaks like a clown horn when he's nursing
  • loves his sleep sheep

Until next time...
