What the what?!? Remy is one month old already?!? Well, I guess technically he was one month old yesterday, but still… How is that even possible?!?
Today we had our one month check up at the pediatrician. Remy was 12 pounds 4 ounces (96th percentile) and 24.8 inches long (100th percentile). When the Doctor walked in the first thing she said to me is, “I think you have the biggest baby I’ve ever seen”. Now, she is a younger doctor, so I know she will see bigger at some point, but y’all, Remy is a big boy. And I don’t necessarily mean big as in bulky or obese, but his height and weight are really topping the charts! I might have some basketball or football players in a few years!
What a difference my little Remy is from baby Bennett. One of the biggest differences is that Remy takes a bottle with ease whereas Bennett always preferred going straight to the source for fresh milk. Now, I will admit that this was partially my fault. Bennett did take a bottle for a hot minute, but I guess I got lazy with the effort of making a bottle, so he just fell into his routine of not taking one. My bad…
But Bennett and Remy have LOTS in common such as Remy LOVES to eat, loves to sleep during the day… not so much during the night, and refuses to be set down. He cannot stand it when he is not being held. All of which are similar characteristics of big brother :)
Since Remy has come home we have had a few moments where Bennett has acknowledged him. Every once in a while he will try to bounce the baby in the bouncer, or he will randomly pet him like a dog… I’m still not sure that he understands that this little person is here to stay ha ha ha! The moments that he does interact with Remy are precious though.
Sweet Baby Remy, I love being able to see your face every day. You are such a wonderful addition to our family and I thank God every day for your presence in our lives. I’m so excited to watch you grow and learn with your big brother. Most of all, I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!
Daddy, Mommy, and Brother Bennett love you so much!
