Kanaan's Kronicles...1 Month Old!

Kanaan is 1 month old! At his check up on 10/7/13 he weighed 8lbs 13oz, 1 pound 1 ounce bigger than when he was born. He's 20 3/4" long. He wears size 1 diapers and newborn clothes. His umbilical cord fell off when he was 3 weeks old, and he had his first tub bath on 9/28/13. He LOVES his bath even when I wash his hair. The only time he cries is when we take him out. He rolled from his tummy to his back on 9/26/13 during tummy time. He transitioned from Enfamil Enfacare to Enfamil Newborn formula and he gets a combo of formula and breastmilk. He only cries when he's hungry or I'm putting lotion on him. He loves to get lotion on his back, but screams when I put it on his tummy. He's gotten much better about getting his diaper changed, he only cries about 50% of the time and that's usually because he just got out of the bath or is hungry. He eats every 3 hours during the day and will go anywhere from 3-5 hours at night.

His schedule is:

8:30am - wake up time/eat/get dressed
9:30am - nap
11:30am - eat
12:30pm - nap
2:30pm - eat
3:30pm - nap
5:30pm - eat
8:30pm - eat

His last scheduled nap is 3:30pm, he does nap between 5:30 and 8:30pm but we try to distract him and keep him awake as much as possible. We also try to give him his bath and get his pjs on between the last 2 scheduled feedings. His last scheduled feeding is 8:30pm. After his 8:30pm feeding we let him sleep until he wakes up on his own and he usually goes at 3-5 hours between feedings at night. I'm going to start trying to stretch it to a schedule starting at 9am so that when the time change happens he'll be on an 8am schedule.

Here are some pictures from his 1 month photo shoot!
