Jaden Paul-1 month old!

I cannot believe our son is one month old ALREADY!  Seems like only yesterday he was born!  He is growing like a weed!  I call him a hoss because he's so big!  At his 2 week appointment, he already weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces, so I think he's definitely on his way to 9 pounds by now!  He is definitely a good eater.  Can't say much about being a good sleeper quite yet, but we're working on it!  So some updates...

As I mentioned earlier, Jaden's 2 week appointment went well.  He's grown to 20 inches and already had gained a whole pound!  I can't believe how big he's getting.  At one month, he's almost outgrown the newborn outfits.  I'm thankful he still swims in the 0-3 month outfits :)

Jaden enjoyed his first Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa Martin and Grandma and Grandpa Fanous.  Let's just say he stole everyone's hearts this Christmas.  He's such a stud!  :)  We got to go to Iowa for a week and a half and it was positively amazing to be with family for that long.  Chris and I were so grateful for the help of family :)  Jaden got several ridiculously cute outfits from family but I have to say our most memorable gift was from Uncle Ty-pee pee teepees.  Seriously-no joke!  They are these cone shaped clothes that you put over baby's wee wee while you change them so they won't pee on you!  We love them!  Thanks Uncle Ty!  :)

Jaden helped Daddy celebrate my birthday on the 7th.  They took me to Red Lobster-love their cheddar biscuits (I think I ate 5 or 6 of them!) and then to the mall.  They bought me my annual pair of fat pants and a comfy shirt and sweatshirt as well.  It was a great birthday with the family and very good to get out of the house!

I'm recovering well-thankfully.  I feel as though I'm almost 100%...I still have to be careful not to overdo it when we do go out, but so much better than right after birth of course :)  Jaden is sleeping between 3 and 4 hours at a time at night so mommy and daddy are thankful for that!  We are definitely looking forward to the day when he pulls his first 6 hour stretch!  :)

Other than that, not much else to report!  Enjoy some pictures of Jaden in his first month of life!  :)  The last 2 pictures are some of my favorite!  Aunt Kara and Uncle Adam got Jaden some Winnie-the-Pooh bath attire and towels-he looked so ridiculously cute in his robe and slipper/booties!  I LOVED IT!!!

Chris thought it would be funny for Jaden to "ride'" Rudy-don't think Rudy thought the same...

  1. He is too cute! Love the robe and matching slippers. He looks like you in the last picture! I don't think you could ever fit into fat pants. . . or rather, that they would ever stay on you! You are gorgeous! Happy sleep hunting!

  2. Love the pictures in the robe. So cute!!!! Love you!
