1 Month!

I can't believe Tyler is already 4 weeks old!  It doesn't feel like it has been that long already.  We are starting to get into more of a normal routine which is nice.  His feeding has gotten so much better.  He just started eating about 3-4oz every 3-4 hours, but he is going about 5 hours or so overnight which is always a good thing.  He had his 1 month check-up at the pediatrician on Friday.  They are very happy with how he is growing and developing.  The pediatrician said he is very strong for 4 weeks old and has good head control for his age.  As for his growth....

Birth:  8lb 4oz, 20 inches
4 Days Old:  7lb 2oz
2 Weeks Old:  8lb 5oz, 21.75 inches
1 Month Old:  10lb (60%), 22 inches (69%), Head Circumference 37cm (26%)

He is still not sleeping in his crib at night.  For some reason I am having a hard time being away from him and that includes wanting to sleep with him.  He has been sleeping in his bouncy seat in the living room or in bed with me.  However, I have started to put him in his crib in the morning.  The boys are usually up around 6-6:30am and at that point I am usually just finishing up feeding Tyler.  At that point I put him in his crib and he usually sleeps about 2 hours or so.
