Dylan Kenneth Tummel

This precious baby has been with us for a little over a month now. It's hard to see his personality at this young age but so far he's  been quite a joy to have with us. He hardly fusses except when he's tired or hungry. He has started to be more alert and look around more and turns his head when he hears our voices. Sometimes I swear he's trying to smile and I can't wait until he does! 
At first he refused the pacifier but he has started to take it more now. He likes to be swaddled to sleep and to sit in his swing and look out the window or at the spinner above the swing. Fans capture his attention as well. He is a pretty good sleeper so far, during the day I'll either put him in his swing for naps or the bassinet and he falls asleep pretty easily on his own. I've been keeping him on a eat, play, sleep cycle like I did with Colin so it's been good to have him in a semi routine. He is fingers crossed sleeping good stretches at night..he goes down anywhere between 9 and 10 and has slept a good 4-5 hour stretch before he wakes up for his next feed. Unlike his brother, Dylan took to nursing very well and also will take a bottle easily too.
Of course he's only a month old so all of this changes on a daily basis but I'm trying to just go with the flow :)

  1. He is just so cute :) And so lucky you are getting a 4-5 hour stretch already. Caroline has only done one of those (we are also doing baby wise). Hoping month 2 will bring some longer stretches of nighttime sleep :)
