We've known each other for a month Rowe, and you have fit right into our family. Your brother is so proud of you! He doesn't like for you to be upset and often says,"Don't cry my baby!" He has also given you several nicknames, with Daddy's help, including: Rowe Cat, Robot, and Rowe E (with a long e on the end). Overall, you are a pretty easy baby. You love to sleep in your swing, like car rides ok but prefer the car to be moving, have made your own schedule for eating and sleeping during the day, wake easily to loud noises including Brennan and Wells, and like to be awake most when we are ready to go to bed each night. You started sleeping in your crib at about two weeks old because you kept scooting to the side of the bassinet and putting your face up against the fabric side. That's how you were sleeping during your last ultrasound, so I'm sure it was comforting to you....but pretty scary for me. You are holding your head up for longer periods of time and starting to interact with us more each day. You have had lots of visitors in your one month here, and gone lots of places with us. You are also growing and growing. You no longer have to have a supplement bottle, but do still take one or two at night to help you be full. You are sleeping better at night, most nights at least. You usually sleep about four hours, eat, then sleep another four. One night you did sleep six straight hours. You still sleep quite a bit during the day too.
