Happy One Month, Toby!

In your first month of life, you've:
- been born!
- had your tongue-tie and frenulum cut (ironic, since we chose not to circumcise) so you could nurse
- dropped six ounces from birthweight (6 lb, 12.5 oz) and regained it (plus three ounces!) by your two week appt. 
- learned how to breastfeed (albeit with a nipple shield) 
- learned how to fart and poop more effectively 
- used a bottle (pumped breastmilk) 
- traveled out of state (to Florida for Christmas) 
- held your head up for several seconds at a time
- had your first babysitter (Aunt Heather on Dec. 15 - a mere 11 days after you were born!) 
- smiled at us
- taken a bath in the bathtub with Mommy
- watched many episodes of Gunsmoke with Daddy
- celebrated your first major holiday, Christmas (with five different celebrations over the course of a week!) 
- met many new people who have loved you even since before you were born - including your parents!

He now weighs 7 lbs, 11.5 oz - he's gained 15 ounces (one oz shy of a pound) in a month! Given the difficulties we had at first with breastfeeding and his tongue-tie, I consider this a success!
