Mr. Z is 1 month old

Lots of love in our house for this little guy. Zander has been a lot of fun. Brock has to be right by him all the time. He asks about him constantly. "Where's my Z?, What's Sander (can't quite get the Z) doing?, Sander coming with us?, Sander sleeping? Sander happy? You want to see my baby? You want to touch my brother?" Brock absolutely adores his little brother. He also loves to torment him. I didn't have brothers, but I'm guessing this is what they do? He likes to flick his binky out of his mouth, unwrap him from his blankets, poke his soft spot, wake him up, throw his binky, yell really loud right in his face when he's sleeping...

Zander is a healthy baby. He is gaining weight really well. He eats really good. 5-7 times a day. He was 8 lbs 3 oz at his 3 week (supposed to be 2 week) appointment. He is still sleeping really well. Eats usually around 10 PM and sleeps until about 5 or 6 AM. Sometimes until 8.  He has been a little bit gassy. It's really sad because he screams bloody murder for about 10 seconds, then calms down for a few minutes, then wails out again. We keep the gripe water close at hand.

He likes to cuddle. I love this. Brock never did. It's hard now to cuddle him though because Brock wants all the attention. As soon as I'm done feeding Zander, Brock wants him back in his bed, or in his bouncer. I try to get the cuddle time though before Brock wakes up and after he goes to bed at night.

Zander is still in new born clothes. Brock was in new born clothes for about 5 days, so it's been fun to be able to dress him in all of his cute things a couple of times. He is growing really well, but he is still so tiny and I love it.

Here's some pictures from his first month... in no order what so ever...

 Brock took this picture... ha ha.

 Never mind the hole in his crotch...

 All bundeled up for our walk to the duck pond.

Hated his first bath. He screamed the entire time. I think the water might have been too cold. He hasn't cried at all during his other baths.

 With Cousin Evi. I can't believe how big she's getting. Cute cousins!

 This one's blurry, it's from my phone. But it's pretty funny...

 Poor baby belly button. It just started bleeding one day. I woke up to find it like this.

Cutest face ever!!

We love you little Z!
