Can you believe this little boy is already 1 month old? We can't!
We are still trying to figure him out, and he's trying to figure out the world, but we love him so. There are so many things we've learned about Russell already
~He loves the outdoors - walking with Jason in the Baby Bjorn or with me in the stroller almost always calms him down if he's fussy.
~Also loves his paci; we're thankful to whomever invented those!
~He is a champion eater! Loves to eat!
~He has several signature facial expressions, but two to note: the "serious face" where he knits his eyebrows together with a set mouth, and the "Cheerio face" where he raises his eyebrows and his mouth goes into a tiny "O". So cute!
~He has a sensitive tummy :( I'm experimenting with cutting different foods out of my diet to find out which ones bother him. It's a difficult exercise, but if it helps him, it will be worth it!
Also, today was Russell's first Sunday at church - he lasted about 10 minutes in the service, in between 2 diaper changes and a feeding! But he sure looked handsome - here's a family picture:
