Monthly update survey jacked from sherbearlove

Baby's Name: Maximilian Orion Lipinski

Birth Date: April 26, 2009

Weight: Around 9 lbs.

Height: Haven't measured him lately, but he is definitely longer than he was at birth (20 3/4 inches).

Sleeping (longest stretch, naps, etc): I think the longest stretch I got was 4 hours, and that was just luck. Normally he sleeps for about 2 hours and may or may not pass back out after I feed him. He is slowly starting to fall into a routine though. Hopefully it will normalize soon so I can regain my sanity.

Feeding (breast or formula, frequency): He's definitely a boobie man. Sometimes I wonder if he is even really hungry or if he just wants to eat out of boredom.

Milestones: Since he hit 1 month he has been more interactive with us. He holds eye contact with me while I'm feeding him and loves looking at daddy. If I'm holding him he is usually straining to look at daddy which is so damn cute. He is so close to smiling and I can't wait until he finally does!

Likes: Boobies, his pacifier, his rattles, sleeping in bed with mommy and daddy, kisses, cuddles, walks in the stroller with mommy, the sun, fresh air.
Dislikes: Being put down before he is 100% asleep, not being given the boobie precisely when he wants it, when his pacifier falls out of his mouth.

How's Mommy doing?: I'm surviving. I feel overwhelmed sometimes because I'm basically doing this by myself. Tomek works 6 days a week (and overtime) and can't really wake up in the middle of the night to help me because of it. I think I'm doing pretty good though considering I have never done this before. I have had a few moments of weakness where I considered switching him to formula just so I could sleep, but I fought the urge and the proof of benefit is in his weight gain. All in all I love the munchkin and I love my little happy family <3

My natural birth story.

I had a pretty good hunch that my son was going to come early. Besides just having a feeling that he would, a family member of mine who is a psychic also mentioned that she thought he would come early. I never thought he would be three weeks early though, that's for sure.
