Max is now one month old. According to my measurements, he is about 22 inches long and 11 pounds. He is definitely eating alot and growing bigger every day. He's totally outgrown newborn stuff, and the overalls he is wearing in this picture are the same ones Ava wore in her 3 month old picture. He's a very good baby, but very particular. He does not like his diaper to be dirty or wet at all, and it always is. He SOAKS them. So, we are going through diapers and trash bags like crazy. He loves to be held all the time, but is getting better about spending some alone time on the floor, in his crib, or in the bouncy seat. He sleeps in his crib until about six in the morning, when he likes to get in bed with us. This may be more because we are too lazy to put him back to bed at this time and it's just easier to snuggle with him in bed until Ava wakes up. He usually wakes up two to three times a night to eat, but he eats rather quickly and goes right back to sleep, so it's not that bad. He smiles now, a real smile, not just a gas smile, and will take a pacifier sometimes, though he isn't really fond of it. He is a really pretty baby and everyone comments on how beautiful his skin is, he looks like he was born with a tan. Overall we are doing good. Ava likes him most of the time, she wakes up in the morning wanting to know where the baby is, and any time we go somewhere she always reminds me to get him out of the car, too. When he starts crying in the car, she will pet his leg and say "Shhh baby, hey.....shhhh."
