Yesterday was not a good day for sleeping for Aaron. He usually has three substantial naps during the day; yesterday he had one and a half. Needless to say, by the end of the day he was exhausted and fussy. After having some food, a bath, and lots of cuddling, he finally went to sleep at around 11.

Today, Aaron is one month old. I can't believe it's only been a month. I know babies go through big changes as they grow older, especially in the first few months / first year. But I was not expecting this. Here is a quick overview of his weight these past few weeks.
Day 1: 9 lbs 12 oz
Day 12: 9 lbs 2 oz
Day 31: 11 lbs 12 oz
Whoa! Two pounds in about two weeks. That is a > 20% increase in weight in just two and a half weeks. I wonder if you can feed newborns too much food. It's on my list of questions for the pediatrician next time we visit.
Anyway, here's the part you all wanna see. One month pictures:

Today marks the four week anniversary of Aaron's birth. We can't believe it's already been four weeks!
On the other hand...has it really only been four weeks? Time seems to move very differently when there's a baby around (for one thing, the day seems a lot longer when you get up at 6 am instead of 10 am, ha). It started even before he was born. While I was pregnant, the weeks seemed to fly by--until I was 37 weeks along. Then suddenly it screeched nearly to a halt. It was as if the universe were making up for the previous temporal celerity, smushing months worth of lost time into just a few weeks, making every day feel more like two or three.
