HAPPY 1 MONTH BIRTHDAY CONNAR!

I can hardly believe that Connar has been in our lives for a month now. Now I know what other people mean when they say that time flies when you have kids. We are so blessed that I'm able to stay home with Connar for the first couple months of his life.

Here are some current facts about our little man at 1 month old:
- He has recently discovered the hanging lambs and stars on the mobile above his swing, so he's actually liking to sit in the swing more often for a longer period of time now.
- He's sleeping in the pack'n play bassinet next to our bed and will sleep for 3-4 hours at a time during the night.
- He's starting to hold his head up for longer periods of time when he's laying on his belly.
- He seems to like to sleep on his side (when we're next to him awake of course!).
- He likes to ride in the car.
- He's starting to enjoy his warm baths more and more each time. Warm towels fresh out of the dryer have helped with that!

On this 1 month birthday of Connar's life, I want to also acknowledge my wonderful husband. Not a day goes by that I don't think about how lucky I am to have the husband that I do. When my spinal headaches forced me to lay down and not be able to take care of my family 100% after the birth, not only did Talton take the lead with our new baby, he also took care of me and nursed me back to health. Not only did he go out for diapers and formula during that time, he also made sure that we had our meals in the beginning. And not only does he take on part of the nightly feedings, he also feeds Connar before he leaves for work so that I can get some more sleep before taking on the job of full-time Mommy for the day. I've said it before, but I'll say it again... I love you Talton.

I sang to Connar on his 1 week, 2 week, 3 week, and 4 week birthdays, so it's only fitting that I sing to him today.
HAPPY 1 MONTH BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY 1 MONTH BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY 1 MONTH BIRTHDAY DEAR MONKEY,
HAPPY 1 MONTH BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!
