Landon 1 month!

Here's Landon's 1 month post! 

10lbs 2oz. (above 50th%)
21 1/2 inches long (50th%)
143/4 inches head (above 25th%)

Landon is a great eater! I don't think the boy will ever turn down food! For the first few weeks he ate like clockwork every 3 hours and would wake himself up at night being restless and I would look at the clock and it would be right at 3 hours.  During the day I would feed him on demand every 2-3 hours.  He does spit up but at this point I'm not worried about him having reflux.  He's not really fussy and as far as we know still gaining weight.  

Size 1 diapers, size 0-3 month and 3 month clothes

He had a lot of gas when he came home (like Lexi) and still has gas, but it doesn't seem to be quite as painful now.  

He was waking up every 3 hours which means that I was only getting about 2 hours of sleep.  He is a really noisy sleeper.  He grunts and moans and flails his arms.  He doesn't care for sleeping on his back either so we put him on his side with his arms out or else he won't sleep :) I'm sure as soon as he can roll he will be sleeping on his belly.  That's the way Lexi prefers to sleep too.  

Really since he was born he's had really strong neck muscles.  Even at his 1 month check up his doctor was commenting on how strong he is and how we can't leave him anywhere already because he will roll early.  She laid him on his belly and he was already turning his torso! Crazy! 

Some things about him:
So far he has taken a paci some to help him get to sleep but spits it out.  He only has it occasionally but chewing/sucking seems to calm him down.  

He has a scream that we can only label as a pterodactyl sound that comes out when he's really upset! 

He LOVES holding things in his hand.  He wants to hold our hands or when he is asleep on my chest he likes holding on to my shirt.  

He's been a really good baby so far.  He definitely has his fussy moments but we sure love him to pieces.  He's a little cutie who I think looks a lot like his big sister.  They have different hair so far but I do think they favor each other! 

I'll label this next picture as "deuces!" 

Don't know if you can tell his eyes are a really dark blue.

These next pictures were taken over his first month of life.  They go in order from newest to oldest.
