{Asher & Jax} One Month

Stats: The boys next doctor appointment (well child check-up) isn't until September 13 so best guess is Asher is 8lb 12oz-ish. (A week and a half ago he was 8 pounds 4 ounces at 21 days young). And Jax is pry 8lb 6oz-ish. (A week and a half ago he was 7 pounds 14 ounces). I am going to bring the boys in with me to get weighed at Crew's 2 year well child appointment on August 15 so I'll update here after those weight checks.
Sizes: I packed away most of the boys newborn clothes (except for their PJs) a few days ago. They are now wearing 0-3 or 3 month clothing. The 3 month clothing is a bit big but I prefer bigger over too tight. They are still in size 1 Kirkland diapers.
Food: The boys got their first (well since the hospital) bottles on July 29 (at 3 weeks and 1 day). Fed by daddy and Grandma Vugteveen-they sucked them right down with no hesitation. Each took 3 ounces. In other feeding news...they still eat on demand. Typically every 2-4 hours during the day. And every 2.5-4.5 hours at night. I rarely pump but know I need to. Just don't have enough time in the day. Would have even larger spans at night if I only had Jax. That kid is SO chill but Asher is always waking to eat so I make Jax wake to eat too.
Routine: No set routine. No typical wake up time. Eat every 2-4 hours and still sleeping a lot but starting to have more alert periods. Asher tends to have more awake/alert stretches than Jax. And they go to bed between 9:30 and 10:30pm...just depends on when they last eat.
Developmental Milestones: Getting better and better neck control. 
Loves: The boys love their momma (tummy to tummy time and my voice especially)!!! Love to eat!!! Love their bops!!! And love being held.
Dislikes: Sitting in a poopy diaper.

Other Things I Don't Want To Forget:
  • You boys have no baby acne {yet anyways}.
  • You boys don't mind your car seats or tubby time. {Yea}!!!
  • In the last week you both have become more and more alert.
{Jax-above & Asher-below}
  • Daddy went back to work after a wonderful 3 week paternity leave.
  • Appearing that you will be our fourth and fifth blue eyed babies. (No brown eyed babies like daddy).
  • Asher you tend to be more fussy but nothing out of the ordinary. Its just that Jax is way beyond chill. And I mean WAY chill.
  • Asher you are a really gassy baby (cause of your fussiness)? Swaddle you up and you tend to calm quicker.
  • You guys went to your first birthday party (for big bro Crew and cousin Easton).
  • Don't think I noted it in your two three week post but you went to church for the first time at 9 days young.
  • Mommy made her first solo trip with more than 3 kids!!! I took you boys along with Crew and Molly to Kohl's while Mase was at VBS.
