Sunday Coffee

Sorry this is a little late….I actually did start it during my morning coffee but someone didn’t want to take long naps today. πŸ™‚ Such is life.

**Speaking of naps, don’t you just wish you could tell kids to enjoy it and take their naps now because once they start school, work etc. they won’t have the luxury of taking naps during the day.

**This week was rough, let’s just say I was happy to see the weekend roll around.

**Grayson started pulling himself up! EEK! The kid can’t crawl or scoot around but can pull himself up on things?? He is going to keep us on our toes!

**Green Beans-1 Peas- 1, Grayson-0 So far he isn’t digging the veggies…but seems to like applesauce ok.

** Today I’m making SQUASH for Grayson. All different types, butternut, acorn etc. Wish me luck.

**Miley still seems to be the talk….her new Wrecking Ball video (gross), her crying during a concert during the song (silly), her break-up. Ugh, anyone else over the Miley talk???

Hope you enjoy your day!!!

4 months

A couple weeks late but here are some pictures of Grayson at 4 months! He turned 4 months on July 4th, so I decided to go with a patriotic onesie instead of the white onesie I have been doing.

And….a little update into his life. πŸ™‚

Grayson has been growing by leaps and bounds! He is more aware and has longer awake times. He has been talking, no screaming a lot. He wants to make sure he can be heard. πŸ™‚ His naps always tend to be about 45 minutes long. He takes about three naps a day and goes to bed between 6 and 7. I would love for his bedtime to be around 730 or 8, but this kid needs his sleep! He doesn’t take a afternoon nap well so his bedtime is early. Currently, he goes to bed around 630 by himself and wakes up around 1am to eat and then back down until 5am. We try and hold him off until close to 6 am to eat to keep him on a good daycare schedule, but for some reason he will not sleep until 6. He wakes up and is usually happy and talkative. Overrall, things are going well! We had his 4 month appointment and he is a whopping 14lbs and 23 inches long. He is compact. πŸ™‚

So that’s a little insight to Grayson’s life right now! Now, on to the fun pictures and likes and dislikes!

Likes:
~ standing
~ bath time
~ knocking over block towers
~ sleeping in his swing (which we try not to do as often anymore)
~ putting anything and everything in his mouth (baby proofing is just around the corner)

Dislikes:
~ Being rocked, this kid likes to look around I can tell he is already independent or wants to be.
~ waiting for his bottle (patience is something we will be teaching VERY early)

Oh my gosh, I can only think of two dislikes right now! I’m sure there are more….but he is a pretty easy baby. Especially now that we have his acid reflux under control he is pretty happy the majority of the day.

Can’t wait to see what 5 months will bring us!

I know the above saying says tomorrow but after my day today I know I already will want a nap tomorrow. You know those days/weeks/months when things are just crazy busy?! That’s me….or at least I feel like I have a million balls in the air and I can’t juggle. πŸ™‚ Today, I went to a meeting thinking it was for one thing and it ended up being for something totally different, and I was introduced to someone I had already met but didn’t remember! She remembered me which makes it even more awkward. FAIL.

So I’m tired….it’s been one of those days/weeks/months…

How about you? πŸ™‚ Naps for all tomorrow I say!
