One Month Update

{I'm going to write a monthly update -- and I hope to one day print them out and bound them in a book for my baby}

Dearest Grayson,

You are one month old as of December 10, 2011. My little baby is growing up and this was quite honestly the fastest month of my entire life.



Grayson, you are the light of our lives. I was so nervous about your birth and taking care of a little one, but the moment we set eyes on you all of our fears just melted away. I wake up everyday and thank my lucky stars for the opportunity to be your mother. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have you as my son.

When you were born, you weighed 8lbs, 9oz and were a total chunkster. When we left the hospital you weighed 7lbs, 11oz (just like me when I was born). Two and a half weeks later you were back up to 8lbs, 10oz. I bet you are closing on 10lbs now, but we won't know for sure until the 13th of December! You eat like a champ and breastfeeding is going very well. When you turned 3.5 weeks old we let daddy give you a bottle of breast milk and I was able to have 5 straight hours of sleep. That rejuvenated me for an entire week!



You grew out of newborn diapers at 2.5 weeks old, but you still wear most of your newborn clothing. You are starting to grow into your 0-3 month clothing and it has opened so many doors for you in the fashion department. =)

Your sleeping habits improve every day. The first 3 weeks were pretty rough and you thought that 11pm-2am was party time! You still only sleep in stretches of 2-3 hours, but you are starting to go down easier after each feeding in the middle of the night.



You are absolutely adorable and have eyes that are as blue as the ocean. They may still change, but daddy and I both have blue eyes, so it's likely that you will too. Surprisingly, your hair is brown. Both daddy and I were platinum blondes when we were little. The nurse at the hospital suspected that your hair would fall out and turn blonde, but it's still brown here at 4 weeks.

Your favorite toy is your wubanub pacifier and your activity mat. Over the past week, you have blossomed and have started batting the toys on your play mat and I think you even smiled at me on Monday. On Thursday, you cooed for the first time and it melted my heart.



Our favorite thing to do is to kiss you right before you eat. Even though you're just rooting, daddy and I like to pretend that you're kissing us back. You are the most kissable baby and I just can't keep my hands off of you! My favorite thing to do with you is to lay with you on my chest. There is no better feeling than a tiny infant laying on your chest.

You have many nicknames- G, Lil G, Lil Boo, Gray, Gray-Gray, Graybee (I need to stop this- it's Grayson + Baby all in one), bear, nugget and peanut.

Sweet G, please make time slow down. I don't want to blink and have a five year old. I cherish every moment I spend with you now!

I love you sweet baby!

Mommy
