Joel is 1 month!

Today the littlest Kroh is 1 month old.  It feels sort of weird calling him our little guy since he really is kind of a "big guy," but he's still technically the littlest over here.  Today at his check-up, he weighed 12 pounds, 4 ounces and is 22 1/4 inches long, so he's growing like a little weed.  He has been out of his newborn wear for a few weeks now.
The little guy loves to snuggle and is quite the little heater!  He of course loves to eat and fill his diapers as well. Ha! He took his very first bottle of expressed milk this weekend and that went very well so we can hold onto hope that we might get a date night sometime soon.
And I've nicknamed him, our little caveman because he's so noisy sometimes.  At night, rather than cry when he's hungry, he just starts rooting around for me and speaking in grunts.  He seriously sounds like a caveman.
As the weeks have gone by, he has become more alert, and gazes around and loves to look over my shoulder.  His eyes are currently a beautiful blue and I just love looking at them.  We shall find out soon enough if the blue eyes and dark hair will stick around.
Leeland and Hayden are so in love with the little guy!  I just adore watching them together, and while I'm not sure developmentally how far Joel can see at this point, I do know that he follows their voices with his eyes and it seems like he is very into whatever they are saying or playing with.  It's really cool to watch!  Leeland and Hayden introduce him to everyone and get very excited for people to see "our baby."
Happy 1 month baby Joel!  We love you so much and are in awe just watching you grow little man.
