Half Way….

That’s right…we are half way to a YEAR OLD!!!!! AHHH! Can time PLEASE slow down?! Grayson is 6 months old today! It’s his half birthday, I wanted to get half of a cake to celebrate but Curt thought that would be silly since Gray can’t even enjoy it. 😉 So what if it was more for me….shouldn’t I be celebrating that my baby boy is 6 months?! Heck, maybe I should get a cake for every month. 🙂

Anyways, Grayson is growing by leaps and bounds!!! At 5 months he started sitting up on his own….he grabs toys really well, he talks a lot, scratch that he screams…a lot. Boy likes to be heard, nothing wrong with that! I think we have a talkative, independent little man on our hands. Grayson is a WHOPPING 17 lbs…..obviously he is a great eater. He eats 8 oz every 3-4 hours and doesn’t leave a drop. He likes his food! So far we have only introduced rice cereal to him and he LOVES it (again, I think we have a good eater on our hands), I can’t wait to introduce food to him. I’m planning on making all of his food using only organic foods. I made some applesauce and froze it because I wanted to practice using my Baby Brezza, but I plan on starting him on avocado. The doc. will be giving us the ok to begin food next week at his 6 month check.

Now, onto the fun stuff….PICTURES!! The first few are good ones, then I HAD to share some bloopers…. 🙂

Baths

Eating (obviously 🙂 )

Putting toys in his mouth

Knocking over block towers made my mommy and daddy

Any phrase in a funny voice

SITTING…he LOVES to sit alone and just hang out with his toys….we have moved on from his beloved saucer I believe

Standing…with assistance. This kid has super strong legs! I think he is going to be a soccer player.

Dislikes:

Taking his medicine. Poor kid needs to take acid reflux meds twice a day and he has another ear infection (2nd on ein about 3 weeks) and is taking meds for that. It is SO difficult to get the meds in him

Missing naps or taking short naps….again he loves his sleep and really needs ALL naps. He takes 3-4 naps a day, anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours on a good day. If he misses one it’s an even EARLIER bedtime. Which I hate. He already goes to bed at 6is so any earlier we barely see him. 😦

Getting his nose wiped, but what kid likes that?

Getting something taken away (toy, rice cereal, bottle etc.) He is starting to get a tad angry when this happens, so we are working on patience and all done.

That’s about it for dislikes. Some other fun things….we are teaching him a few different things in sign language, like eat, play, sleep, etc. He just stares at us when we do it but hopefully it’s sinking in.  We are getting family photos and his 6 month photos professionally done this weekend, I’ll be sure to share them with you all when we have them. It’s going to be 90 freaking degrees but by God we will be wearing Fall colors and clothes. 🙂 I’m ready for Fall!!

Well we are excited to see what the next 6 months will bring us…I’m sure it will be just as exciting as the first 6! We couldn’t be happier. 🙂

3 months and then some….

So time seems to have gotten away from me and I realized I never posted Grayson’s 3 month update and in about two weeks he will be 4 months! Please forgive me, but things have been crazy here. I started work again, and Grayson has spent a total of about 5 days in daycare because soon after he started the poor guy got the flu! He has been battling the flu for about a week so hopefully we are on the mend. He was also was diagnosed with acid reflux, we got him some medicine and now that’s not working! So we need to get new medicine but can’t until Monday (darn insurance!). Then I got the flu! So it’s been a rough couple of weeks but we are slowly feeling better and will hopefully get new meds for the little man so he can feel better. And now it’s Fathers Day Weekend so we plan to stay healthy and spend all our time with daddy 🙂 I hope out all have a wonderful weekend!

3 months!

~ Bath Time
~ Eating (when he feels good and his medicine is working 😦 )
~ Sitting in his bumbo (so glad we bought one!)
~ Putting toys in his mouth
~ The song “Just Give Me a Reason,” by Pink. Whenever he starts to cry or needs help going to sleep, we can play this song and it works miracles!
~ Looking around

Dislikes:
~ Lotion after bath time
~ Sleeping at daycare (he isn’t very good at taking naps at daycare yet, any advice from you working momma’s on this?)
~ Tummy Time
~ Going to sleep (some days are better than others)

So to sum up, ever since his medicine he has been a totally different baby. He seems happier, sleeps better and plays a lot but now that its not working we are back to cranky baby. And who can fault him he is in pain! Poor kid! I will keep you posted!

In other news, Grayson was waiting for daddy to get home to share his Fathers Day weekend plans with him! Post to come but for now enjoy some pictures of our almost 4 month old! 🙂
