One Month Old

By: Steph | Tags: , , , ,


Hard to believe that Brayden is one month old already! Between sleeping, feeding, napping, and playing with a very imaginative 2 year old, the days have all kind of run together and a month has gone by quickly (except in the wee hours of the morning- then time goes a little too slowly). We’re still trying to figure out how to get more sleep throughout the night; Brayden still spits up quite a bit and seems to have some tummy aches which causes him to wake up frequently in the early morning hours. It’s hard to tell if the Zantac is helping but we’ll give it some more time. The doctor had us bump up the dose last Friday because he’s gained quite a bit of weight in the last two weeks- he’s up to 10 lbs. 7 oz. now!

Lauren is still loving her role as the big sister and asks me to take her picture every time she’s holding him. She has loved the extra attention and big sister gifts that she’s received. We’ve had quite a few visitors and Lauren has enjoyed having kids over to play with while we show off her little brother. She recently got a new pet, a betta fish that she named Nemo, for being completely potty trained and likes to feed him herself- hopefully he can survive being overfed a few times a week.

My brothers and parents are coming for a visit this week and we’re so excited to see them and to introduce Brayden to his uncles!

    Wow, one month old already! And still so cute! Can't wait to see him again. I love the photos of Lauren and her new pet :) Annie was checking out fish at the petstore this weekend, she will be jealous.

    Great new pictures! He looks pretty content. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Looks like the other new addition — Nemo — s a big hit too. Opa thinks Braden is looking more like Josh. Love, Nana Jo

    Hi Dave~Thank you for doing what you are doing, not only in choosing a raw food lftysiele that saved your life (as we understand that as we do our own healing we help heal the rest of the planet), but in choosing to share your journey with the rest of us so that we may be inspired and uplifted by your story. Had you not chosen to share yourself this way so many would not have the opportunity to learn and grow with and from you. Your story is so beautiful because it is so real, and so unlikely, who ever heard of a raw food trucker?! Being a raw foodist and the daughter of a trucker, I appreciate your plight and deeply respect and support your health and life decisions. Your story has touched me and I feel that I finally have something to share to help my mother that she can relate to and save her own life through making similar healthy life choices. I know she will feel that if you could do it, so can she. Thank you dearly for that Dave.I am so proud of you, please keep up the good work and let us know how we can support you.Bless your Life and your Heart~Crystal
