1 Month with Elliott Graham

Family, #elliottgrahamAnaleisa LathamComment

I can't even believe 1 month has past since our beautiful boy entered the world!

I always heard people say cherish every day because they fly by - geez do I understand that now!

A few 1 month stats:
Weight: 7lbs 12 oz - 4.7 percentile
Length: 21 in - 33.85 percentile
Head Circumference - 14.96 - 83.64 percentile (P.S. - why is this a thing that they measure?!)

His smiles are contagious (even though he gave the first few to Daddy and Mimi); 
He's starting to find his voice (we've had a few little giggle attempt in the past couple days);
His cuddles...o his cuddles;
He's a great sleeper (giving us 4-5 hours in a row at night).

Breastfeeding has been our biggest challenge, not because the little guy doesn't like to eat but because I don't quite have enough milk to satisfy him. We've been working and working with the lactation consultants at the pediatricians office but nothing really seems to be working to increase. That's been hard on me, but I'm trying to focus on the fact that Elliott is on track with growth and be thankful that we can fill the gaps with formula.
