Simon is one month!

Whoa, where did the time go?  Our little guy is still very much a newborn but he's getting bigger every day.  Just two weeks ago he was struggling to gain weight at 2 oz below his birth weight of 6 lbs 7 oz and today he weighed in at 7 lbs 14 oz.  We have to coax him to eat his 2 oz at a time but he does it.  He has progressively more alert time but still sleeps pretty well at night, waking around 2:30, 5 and 8.  Unfortunately with the pumping it takes at least an hour at a time.  Simon can nurse when he's awake and alert but that's still pretty rare.  I'm hopeful he'll catch on as we get closer to his due date.

Hannah is being a good big sister and loves to dole out kisses and supervise diaper changes.  We are settling in to life as a family of four.
