1 month

Age: 1 month Weight & Height: At my 1 month appointment I was 22.75 inches long and 12 lbs. 10 oz.  Mommy and the doctor were very happy with my weight gain. I am in the 97th percentile of  height and  99th of weight. Things I enjoy: Being held and sleeping during the day.  I like bath time.  I love eating and I love it when mommy and daddy bounce me around on their shoulder. Skills I've mastered: I'm getting better at holding my head up.  I do it better when I'm on mommy's shoulder, but I also do it at tummy time. I'm also really good at eating! I rarely if ever spit up. Looking forward to: Smiling at mommy and daddy on purpose. Tough Times: Nights are tough. Mommy and daddy are learning when I cluster feed, they are learning when I am gassy and when i just need to be held. I normally have at least one 4 hour stretch at night and I'm hoping to get better and better.   Sometimes when I cry, mommy and daddy don't know why I'm upset and that is a tough tim…

Ain't no rest for the wicked........or anyone for that matter

Age: 24 days old Weight & Height: I have my 1 month appt next week. I have a feeling Im still gaining weight.Things I enjoy: Being held and sleeping during the day. I also love nursing with mommy and want to do it all the time! Skills I've mastered: Crying when I want something and eating out of a bottle.  I also love baths. Tough Times: Nights are tough.  True we've had some good ones, but I'm not going down or staying down for mommy a lot of the time.  Mommy is trying to think positive, but I didn't fall asleep until 3am last night so Im not making it easy. Exciting Events: I've had lots of visitors and everyone has given me lots of gifts.  I'm gearing up for all of the holiday festivities. Mommy has taken me to the store a few times and we've gone on a few walks. Everything is exciting to me right now and I have a feeling something awesome is gonna happen when I'm sleeping at night, that's why I do everything in my power to stay up as long as pos…

Matthew Francis Moher

Long time no write!

Life's been obviously crazy lately.  Little man did not come on his own like I had originally hoped, so we had a scheduled C-Section on Monday, September 29th and it couldn't have gone smoother.

I have to admit, getting a spinal tap is WAY easier than getting an epidural.  Not sure why, but it didn't hurt in the least.

It was quite freaky walking back to the operating room and hopping up onto the table myself, but just like the first time, all of my doctors were amazing.  The same doc performed the procedure, but my anesthesiologist was different and just as great as the first one.

Matthew Francis Moher was born at 9:43am.  Before they started the doctors asked me how big I thought he would be.  I said 10 pounds and they all laughed saying no way.  Well little man turned out to be 11 lbs on the dot! Even though they did a c-section they still had to use a vacuum to get him all the way out. It was crazy the second time, kind of knowing what going to ha…
