(UPDATE: I weighed Tyler by getting on the scale with and without him, and the difference was 11.5 pounds - it is a digital scale that goes in 1/2 pound increments. So, he weighs roughly 11 pounds at 1 month old. We also attempted to measure his length and came up with 22 inches. He's a growing boy! Both Steve and I feel that we missed out on the newborn stage with him because he's so much bigger than Lucas was his first month!)
Tyler is becoming much more active in the past week or so. He is holding his head up better and is starting to reach for our faces. He is especially a wiggle worm during diaper changes. He is also starting to smile when we talk to him and touch his face, though we can't always coax one out of him. I love that he recognizes us and is starting to interact.
So far Tyler has kept his head full of dark hair, even his sideburns, eyebrows, and some hair on the very tops of his ears. He has beautiful eyes and skin and a perfect little nose. Here are two adorable pictures I took today.
Tyler, we love you, and we thank God for you! We are looking forward to all the fun that your second month has in store!
