Brady's One Month Update

Hey, guys!

My little guy is one month old; I can hardly believe it! He actually turned one month on Saturday but I have been super-duper busy and am just now getting around to writing it while he's sleeping. 

Where do I even begin? Well, first of all ... I think he's the cutest baby on the planet but I know all moms think that about their babies. :) Being a mom is the most amazing thing in the world. It's a ton of work but I wouldn't trade it for anything! My heart is so full of love for him that I feel like it could explode. Every day I wake up loving him more and more. 

He's such a good baby. He's starting to give real smiles and is super attentive and aware. He's starting to wiggle when he's laying on his back like he's trying to roll over. He's also starting to coo and make adorable sounds. When he cries it sounds like he's saying "naeee naeee," just like a horse; it's the cutest thing ever. He sleeps 2.5 to 4-hour stretches at night (although he had a 5-hour stretch without waking a couple nights ago, which was glorious!). I'm loving and savoring every second of watching him grow and seeing his personality develop every day. I'm blessed beyond measure. <3

His likes are:
Cuddling/being held/being swaddled
Having his head and face caressed
Getting burped or having his back beaten on
Eating (he has an insane appetite!)
Being bounced, rocked or walked around with
Music and being sung to
Putting his hands in his mouth and sticking his tongue out
Trying to stand up ... yes, you read that right ... he's been trying to stand up for a couple of weeks now and he actually can push himself up with me holding on to him. He's super strong!

His dislikes are:
Laying flat on his back
Gas (which he gets a lot)
Being warm or hot at all (he's very heat-sensitive and loves to stay cool like his mommy)
... and that's pretty much it right now.

Here are Brady's one month pictures:

If you're not friends with me on Facebook and want to see more pictures, you should friend me because I'm always posting pictures of Brady. :)

Much love,


  1. He slept so well because he was visiting grammy's house :)

  2. Amy,
    I can't remember if I've commented here before but I had started following your blog when you were sharing about weight loss and then loved reading through with your pregnancy.

    I wanted to tell you Congratulations! Your son is adorable and it's exciting to hear about how his first month has gone.
    Hope you continue to adjust well to this wonderful new gift God's given your family!
