Merry Christmas!

Nicky’s first Christmas was a blast (pictures here). We got to spend lots of quality time with family. We were so happy that we got to celebrate with the entire Tucson and Los Altos clans. It meant a lot to have everyone in the same place for the holidays. Little Nicky is going to be disapointed to learn that everyone’s going home…he was loving having so many people to cuddle.

Happy 1 Month Birthday Nick-o!

IMG_0776_2 It’s hard to believe that 1 month has already gone by (pictures here).  It’s been a fun month, full of learning new things and meeting new people.  In his first month, Nicky has learned to breathe, eat and poop, which is pretty monumental when you think about it.  Some other accomplishments are that he added 1/3 of his birth weight, ending the month at 11 lbs 5 oz and grew 1.5 inches to 22.5 inches.  He also learned how to eat from a bottle so now daddy can have fun feeding too.  At the end of the month, Nicky can track things withh his eyes and has better muscle control – he can reach out to his favorite toys, hold his pacifier in his mouth and reliably get his fingers into his mouth when a paci isn’t handy.  The biggest development has been that he’s figuring out that night is for sleeping.  8p to midnight is still one of his favorite times to be awake, but the rest of the night he sleeps pretty well.  Last night he only woke up once between 10p and 6a…what a great 1 month birthday present for mom and dad!  We’re so proud of everything our little guy has done this month and can’t wait to see what he learns next month!
