One Month Old

Somehow one day turned into one month and my little caliph is 4 weeks old already and I wonder how is that happening. It's been a great month, and we've kept busy and tried to take lots of trips in the car and pram while the weather is nice.
Cheered up the hearts of many family members. I'll never forget the joy he brought to my family, making them smile everyday.
Been sleeping for longer stints at night - usually between 12 am to 6 am. Well done, baby boy.
Started using his dummy more regularly, mostly to help him nod off to sleep.
Broken out in her first batch of milk spots - hormonal baby rash.
Started to smile and laugh, though not regularly - I can't wait to see his happy face all the time.
Managed to get through his first batch of shot - the one month vaccinations. He was a trouper - screamed in the first one but felt better after mummy cuddles.
Discovered the witching hour - he is an absolute terror in the late afternoons and evenings. Inconsolable crying, feeding all the time, struggling to sleep. It's been exhausting for all of us.
Continued to solely breastfeed and is doing a really good job of it.
Gained more weight and is up around 4.5 kg. He's a petite little thing - though you wouldn't think so by looking at his chubby cheeks and edible arm and thigh folds.
Almost outgrown his newborn clothing, but is still too small for others. His arms and legs are too short for them - but we're putting him in them so that he's got room to move.
Mastered rolling over. We can't really spend much tummy-time on the floor any more, because he uses his feet to flip herself onto his back. Clever caliph.
As cheesy as it sounds, I wouldn't trade the hard times for anything. Today was a glorious day. Khalef was happy - happy one month old.
