Height + Weight:
23.75 inches tall and 10lb 6oz! (This was as of early April, he is now 11 lb 4 oz as of 4/24!)
Clothes + Diapers:
In the past month, he has outgrown his newborn clothes and is wearing 3 month clothes now mainly because he was running out of room length-wise. He’s still a little peanut but we have a feeling he’s going to be tall like Andy! We bumped him up to size 1 diapers since the newborn ones kept leaking.
Fletcher has been sleeping through the night a handful of times, but otherwise continues to wake up just once to eat.
We let Fletcher guide us on what he is ready for next, but we still loosely follow the sleep, wake, change diaper, eat, play routine. He eats roughly 4oz every 3ish hours, sometimes more in the evenings. We try to get out of the house at least once a day which makes a huge difference for all of us! I think we were all feeling a little cooped up after the long and cold winter that we had.
He has really “come to life” this month! Fletcher loves watching us do random things like get ready in the morning, empty the dishwasher, etc. He’ll also follow us with his eyes and head if we move around the room. He is a very “happy” boy and is always smiling!
He has discovered his hands and realized that they belong to him — he likes to look at them, touch them together on his tummy, and use them to grasp toys, books, and my hair! ;) I went back to work and Fletcher has enjoyed his days with his “Nanny Annie.” :)
It’s been so fun to see Fletcher start to play with toys, listen intently while we read him books, roll over, and really look around and observe his surroundings. He got to meet his godparents, Lance and Karen, who are long-time friends of ours. It was also fun to celebrate my birthday with Andy and my little boy this year!
I brought Fletcher with me to my Mom’s Life group a few weeks ago and he enjoyed making flirty faces with all of the girls at my table. He’s also enjoyed going for lots of walks in our neighborhood, visits to the arboretum and visiting his friend Wylder.
