Meagan Musing: 1 Month

Meagan Musing


1 Month

Yesterday was Andrew's 1 month birthday. I can't believe he's already been with us for a whole month! He has started to smile back at me, and it's just the sweetest thing ever.

We were in the middle of this one month photo shoot yesterday when he spit up all over himself. There was so much of it that it rolled all the way down his cute little 1 Month sticker and pooled on the chair. I thought it was hysterical and laughed at him while I was cleaning it up, and he just smiled away at me. Like he thought it was the funniest thing ever, too.

Of course, I didn't capture one of those big open-mouth smiles on camera. He's the most serious looking baby. Always checking everything out.

He decided to give his mama a present for his birthday. He slept from 11:30 to 5:00 last night! I couldn't believe it. I'm sure it was a fluke, and I have no hopes that it will happen again tonight, but I was so excited. It was the longest stretch of uninterrupted sleep I've had in two months. Thank you little guy!

I haven't been to the grocery store since Andrew arrived. I've been to Super Target once or twice, but I haven't been on a real grocery shopping trip in about 5 weeks. (Brian's been sweet enough to go for me so we're not starving or anything.) So on Wednesday I decided I had to put on my brave face and just do it.

I fed Andrew, plopped him in his car seat and headed for Tom Thumb. By the time I pulled in to the parking lot he was screaming. So I drove around in circles for a bit hoping he'd fall asleep. That didn't do any good. So I parked and got him out of the car seat and tried to soothe him, but he wasn't having any of it.

I hated to take a really upset child into the store. So I turned around and drove right back home. I'm so afraid he's going to dislike grocery shopping as much as I do. I've already decided I'm trying again tomorrow. We're both just going to have to tough it out.
