4 Weeks Already!

Kyeson is 4 weeks old today already, (though technically not a month old until Tuesday)!!! Wow, that went by really fast. It kind of feels like he just got here, but at the same time I am definitely feeling like I have not slept through the night in the last month or so :) Babies grow so fast. So bittersweet.

This is what I know about Kye already. He is a really great baby. And I'm not just saying that because he's my baby. I have never really liked having newborns/infants because my first two were so difficult. They were little people that cried a lot, had to be held all the time, and had to be bounced to sleep every nap and bedtime. It was so much work.

Kyeson is so much easier! I knew it was going to be much easier with him when one of the first few days we were at home I was able to lay him down while he was still awake and he went to sleep all on his own. I was so excited. He also takes a pacifier, something other certain people never did. He will also just hang out on the floor and play all by himself! Well, not really play yet, but hang out and look at the world.

I try to have him be awake for an hour or so after he eats, but he does not like to be awake during the afternoon. He wakes up every 3-4 hours around the clock to eat (which means that he gets up usually twice a night). Besides getting up twice a night, he sleeps great the rest of the night, but he also sleeps great during the afternoon. :) He is like this lazy bum who refuses to be awake in the afternoon. If I try to keep him awake he is not happy - at all. Since he is so good at going to sleep without much work, it's also really hard to keep him awake if he doesn't want to be.

Lazy bum examples.

Steve trying to make fun of Kyeson...except he couldn't really keep a straight face.

And this is one of the times I've tried laying him on the floor to wake him up and change his diaper, and this is what he does instead. Rolls onto his side and goes back to sleep. P.S. and look how wrinkled his knee is, it's the cutest thing ever!

Like I said, lazy bum.

This first month with Kye has been so great. Our family feels so complete to me now.

He is so cute! I want to see him so bad! Too bad I don't have my own car yet :( I'm glad he's an easy baby for you! Easy babies are just so, well, easy! Eli was easy (Gabriel was kind of easy but nothing compared to Eli), he would go to sleep just laying there all on his own, even if Gabriel was playing around him two feet away. Twas' awesome ;)

ha! I LOVE the pictures. Ben was also super hard to keep awake and would seriously fall asleep while being held in a standing position. I am glad Kye is being such a good boy for your family :)
