Owen: Month, One

May 31, 2016

I blinked and the first month flew by. That is a total lie. I blinked about ten times (total) and the month flew by because, no sleep. 

Biggest Milestone: Attending Ginger's wedding when you were two weeks old. 

Hardest Challenge: (for me) The inability to breastfeed exclusively due to low milk supply.

Most Memorable: Breastfeeding. You have an awesome latch and are most comfortable at the breast. 

Also, baby snuggles -- forever.

Longest Stretch of Sleep: hahahaha! Not applicable. 


20 He's here! He's finally here! And, he's exquisite

21 Your lungs WORK. And despite every trick in our new parent arsenal we waved our white flag and called the nurse.  Upon your return the nurse commented you were -- an angel.

22 Home! The hounds are curious -- Rubin loves you and Miles is indifferent as predicted

23 My boy likes to party all night long...

24 I could snuggle you forever.

25 1st pediatrician visit and trip to Target. Nursed as we roamed the aisles.

26 Breastfeeding has proven to be a challenge-- c'mon boobs make more milk!

27 Happy Easter! Quiet day at home with our little family 

28 Today, you were circumcised. 

29 Only sadists schedule newborn appointments at 9a...

10 Daddy's last day of paternity leave -- those three weeks went by quickly, and were much(!) appreciated.

15 Two hours of errands with mommy and dinner out with cousin Kevin

16 First trip to Princeton 


  1. This is my new favorite way for monthly updates.
    I'm giggling over the longest stretch of sleep. That's pretty much my life, still.

  2. That's a lot of adorableness in one article. I can't handle this much cuteness and the milestone part was to cute itself! Lots of wishes to you and your little one.
