Grayson's 10th Month

Wow!  What a month!  Big things happened this month as you took off crawling and haven't slowed down since.  You love to follow Mommy or Daddy or big brother Mattox all over the house.  You and Mattox play so well together most of the time when he isn't trying to run you over with his car, shut the doors on you, or climb on you.  Ha!  You also experienced your first hurricane evacuation, your first trip to the zoo, and lots of other wonderful things.

Size:  Since we went to your nine month well-check on September 6th, you weighed 18 lbs. 5 .2 oz. at the beginning of this month and likely put on a pound or two by the end.  You are a very long baby, and we wonder if you will be the tallest of your brothers when you grow up.  You are still above the 90th percentile there.  You have still been wearing size 3 diapers and need mostly12 month clothes as you are starting to need to wear pants more.  You outgrew your 9 month sleepers and needed some new 12 month ones.   

Developmental Accomplishments:  Of course, you started full crawling while Mommy was taking your 42 week pictures, and you haven't slowed down since.  While you can stand holding on to furniture or our fingers, you aren't interested in pulling yourself up yet.  You love bath time with big brother Mattox and love splashing in the water.   You love banging toys together to make noise but are generally still a quiet boy while playing so I often have to come and find you when I can't hear you.    You are babbling more but still mostly say "mamamamama"  a lot.  You have four teeth at the moment but seem to be working on getting more.  The separation anxiety and stranger anxiety has decreased a little as you have started going to church nursery with Mattox on Wednesday nights.  You like the teacher and like crawling around and exploring.  You don't mind playing alone in a room as much now and don't cry as much when I need to leave the room.  Mattox is really loving you more now although he does get a little rough sometimes and has tried to run you over with his car or sit on you.  Ha!  But he really does love you.  You also love cords and my computer which makes it really difficult to get any work done.  You are just a sweet little mess!
Sleeping:  You have been sleeping in your crib in your room, but you do sometimes wake up for more milk or because you are really wet.  When you do finally go down for the night, you often wet out of your diaper because you like to turn yourself onto your tummy to sleep.   

Eating:  You have still been doing well eating, and we are still chugging away at breast feeding which I am thankful for.  You still refuse to take a bottle so you get about four to five breast feedings a day.   You still really love eating solids and have really been doing well with every food you have tried.  You still eat mostly mixed combination meals with a fruit and oatmeal or yogurt combination for breakfast, a vegetable combination for lunch, and a meat and vegetable combination for dinner.  You have now tried avocados, peas, squash, apples, pears, bananas, sweet potatoes, peaches, green beans, broccoli, white potatoes, mangoes, and butternut squash.   You like white potatoes mixed with a green vegetable like peas, green beans, or broccoli.  You eat a chicken puree mixed with an orange vegetable like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or carrots. You have also had a little taste of ice cream and even your first Chick-fil-a kids' meal with some grilled nuggets cut up for you and apple sauce.  

Teeth:  You still have four teeth with two on the bottom and two on the top. 

Favorites:  Mommy; Cocoa (your dog); food; when Daddy gets home from work; playing with your big brothers; blocks to bang together; cars; cups or bowls that have food or drink in them that you try to grab; bath time and splashing in the water

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