Gavin Reid you are ONE month old!!

What are you up to these days?

You are eating about every 2.5-3 hours during the day and every 3 hours at night. You LOVE to eat and always think you are hungry!

You have graduated from newborn diapers to size 1 diapers, but they still seem ridiculously big for you!

You have been  wearing newborn clothes mostly But your round little tummy has started busting out! I put you in a few 0-3 outfits the other day and I think we are about ready!! Plus I am excited for some new outfits!

You are a loud eater! Smacking, gulping and grunting like a little piggy :) You grunt ALL the time....and it is loud! I will never forget our first time at church, you were a perfect quiet angel until the prayers and then you would clench your fists and grunt until your face turned bright red-then you go right back to sleep! You do this all the time, especially at night when we are TRYING to sleep!

Speaking of bodily noises... You have NO shame letting 'em rip! ...I wonder where you get that!  :)  But really, it's kind of amazing the intensity and duration of some of these farts. Your daddy and I just look at each other and die laughing. Stella thinks these noises are very curious and always  tries to sniff your diaper.

Baths are going great! You had your first no cry bath the other day and have seemed to enjoy them ever since. It just took us a while to figure out you are just like your mama...you like your baths HOT!!

You also like your paci, but you are very picky. It took us several tries to find one you would tolerate. You like NUK brand (preferably sports) pacis....should have known :)

We take you out a lot, but I don't take you out too much on my own yet. You LOVE Market Street (actually it loves you!) We can barely make it through the door without someone commenting on how adorable you are. You have also been to Target, Willow Bend Mall (you were wonderful shopping with GiGi and Papi), church, Grapevine Mills Mall, Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and a couple of daddy's kickball games! You like riding in your car seat and no matter how perfectly we put you in, you always end up scrunched up like this

....you don't seem to mind though!

Also, you rolled over from your tummy to your back when you were 5 days old! we just thought it was a fluke, but you have continued to do it! You are SOOOOO strong!!

We barely caught this first roll-over on video because we never expected you to actually be able to do it so soon!!!

Lets do a quick recap:


 Happy One Month baby boy!

Project 365

I saw this idea on another blog and I think it's a wonderful idea! My goal is to take a picture of sweet Gavin every day for 1 year and TRY to post it weekly. We have so many family and friends that are not here to watch him grow and see how much he changes his first year. Once I have all the pictures finished I want to order them and make a book for his first birthday :) Now lets just hope I can keep up with it!
