Grayson's 2nd Month

Well, I am way behind as usual, but we are just having so much fun raising these four little men, and it is hard to keep up with everything.  I am just loving my precious time with my littlest man before he becomes a big guy.  It is all going way too fast.  Here are the highlights from Grayson's second month:

He does love his daddy and showed it in his special shirt for Daddy's birthday. He makes lots of cute and expressive faces.

And some pretty funny mad faces.  He doesn't get mad often, but he'll definitely let you know when he isn't happy.

Obviously, he wasn't too pleased during this photo session.  I didn't purchase too many new outfits for Grayson although I did get a few more warm outfits for the winter months.  I couldn't resist this little tree themed one piece from Old Navy which went along perfectly with the tree cookie numbers I found at Hobby Lobby on major sale.  I am planning to hang those numbers in his room and am gradually working on a more woodland themed room.

Sweet baby working on his tummy time exercises and trying to hold his head up.   Do any babies really enjoy tummy time?

He did have really strong neck muscles and could lift his head up pretty well at 6 weeks old.

Showing us who the boss was!  Those faces just make me laugh.

And telling big brother Evan he is the boss!

We don't mind being bossed around by this cute baby.

Poor baby had to do too much car seat riding that month on his trips between North Carolina and Georgia.

I love baby outfits with cute animals, especially on the bootie.  I can't resist taking a picture of the bootie shot.  Haha!  I also couldn't resist this awesome pillow that I found while looking for new sheets for us at Belk during after Christmas sales.  I price checked it on a whim and was expecting it to still cost over $20 but was pleasantly surprised when it was only about $7.  I had to have it for one of the boys' rooms.  I think it will go great in the nursery for now.  It is a really plump and soft pillow with a nice heavy cover material.

Ugh, mean mommy making me do more tummy time exercises.

Cute little puckered lips and serious face.

Starting to get smiley.  I loved this little sleeper with foxes on the feet.

Pretty baby.

One last NC visit from Grandma and Aunt Naomi and cousin Grady before the big move.  Grady says we live too far away now.  He misses his baby.

Sweet little brother.

Some sweet little smiles to end a sweet month with our littlest man.  I already miss him like this.  Why do the first months and years of a baby's life go so fast?  

Health Update:  So far, there are really no concerns with Mr. Grayson.  He has been growing well and eating well.  He is still breastfeeding solely.  I did try to give him a little formula to supplement, but he didn't really want it and still seems to be getting what he needs from me so we are just waiting a little longer.  His reflux issues did seem to have subsided this month so we stopped taking the zantac.  He does still seem to get gassy, but it doesn't usually make him too fussy.  The moving business did make this a more chaotic and crazy month, but it didn't seem to affect Grayson too much.  We just didn't get him to his 2 month well check up so he had to wait until 3 months.  I wasn't too worried as I could tell he was filling out nicely and seemed to be gaining weight.  I suspect he weighed about 10 lbs. at 2 months as he was about 12 and a half pounds at his 3 month check up which put him in the 10th to 25th percentile range.  He really started smiling at us all a lot this month.  He still resembles Brody a lot in looks and personality.  Grayson seems to like to be tickled and just loves being talked to.  He also started trying to sleep through the night by six weeks old and has been steadily doing so ever since.  He normally goes to sleep between 9:30 and 10:00 after a final feeding, and I usually have to wake him up by 5:00 or 6:00 to pump and/or feed him.  He goes back to sleep after and will sleep a couple more hours if we don't have to get up.  Since big brothers have to be at school very early, Daddy usually takes them so we don't all have to get out of the house that early.  He has also been nursing well and frequently during the day to make up for sleeping all night.  Grayson is just such a joy to our family, and I love watching his big brothers, especially Mattox, love on him.  Mattox gives him lots of "bah" (special Mattox kisses) and comes running to comfort him if he cries.  I can't wait to watch their relationship grow as I know it will be special.  We just love this baby to pieces.
