Grayson's 5th Month

Size:  You will not got back to the pediatrician for another weight check until you are 6 months old.  We suspect you weigh somewhere in the 15 lb. range and may be about 26 inches long.  You still wear size 2 diapers although I suspect we will be moving up to 3 soon as you can really fill it up now.  You can still wear most of your 3 to 6 month clothes and some 6 to 9 months for length.  

Developmental Accomplishments:  You are still very happy and love to be talked to and played with. You keep working on rolling over but don't really love it yet.  You can sit on your own for a few seconds and with very minimal support for a lot longer.  You have great neck control when sitting up.  You started really playing with your toys more and grasping and holding onto things.  You played on your playmat a lot and started using your exersaucer and enjoy playing with all the toys on it.  You seem to prefer the penguin while big brother Brody always loved the pandas.  I guess you both prefer black and white animals.  You may have developed a little stranger anxiety this month and do prefer to be held by mommy, daddy, and big brothers.  You also still like holding onto your blankie and putting it in your month or just holding it in your little hands.    
Sleeping:  You are still sleeping great at night.  You usually go to bed by 9:30 or 10:00 (sometimes earlier) and sleep until I have to wake you up which is usually between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. just depending on how tired I am and when I really need to feed you.  

Eating:  You are doing great with eating and are still primarily breast fed.  You still refuse to take a bottle, but I don't mind as long as you are getting plenty to eat.  You are just always with me so it hasn't been a need to get you to take the bottle.  You have been growing so well and progressing so well developmentally so we started some homemade baby food at the end of this month.  Your first food was avocado, of course, and you loved it as much as big brother Brody and ate every last drop.  We stick to the one food for three or four days routine to make sure you don't have any negative reactions but so far so good! 

Nicknames:  Grayson Payson (goes with Evan Pevin, Brody Pody, and Mattox Pattox), Gray Pay, Gray Gray, Baby Goo (because he is just a little gooey sweet mess)

He really does love his Mom! 

I just love those big toothless grins and giggles! 

Lots of awake time and play time. 

Play mat time.  He does tummy time too, but he doesn't love it.  Mattox likes to get under his hanging toys with him. 

Sweet boy playing with his ball. I love his little almost bald head right now.  
We loved celebrating our little bunny's first Easter. 

Hippity hoppity Grayson's on his way! 

Bringing lots of goodies for your Easter basket.  Well, he might eat some of it first. 

Wearing his Easter outfit for church.  This outfit goes all the way back to Evan. 

Those huge smiles are so worth it. 

Our beautiful baby was 18 weeks old. 
Wearing his matching tie and suspenders for our family pictures. 

20 weeks old, and he prefers lying down for pictures.

Play time is best for happy babies. 

Precious faces. 

He did oblige me with some sitting up pictures. 

Brothers wanted in the pictures too.  These two definitely look alike. 

And these two are best buddies.  Mattox was like, "Hey, what have you got in your mouth?  Let me see." 

What a bunch of lucky boys to have so many brothers to love! 

Just pure cuteness. 

What a happy baby eating his avocados! 

Taste testing is fun.  

So far so good. 

Cute little avocado face.  Got to love that tongue. 

Happy baby eating his first meal. Yep, he cleaned out the whole jar just like big brother Brody. 

Play time. 

He learned to play peek-a-boo with his blanket. 

Sweet baby. 

Feet are the best!

But he also likes a ball.  He is ready for baseball! 

Take him out to the ballgame! 

21 weeks.  Time is flying by. 

Blink and the baby is already five months old. 

Probably not much longer for these little gowns.  Sniff.
