Grayson Month 2

Dear Sweet, Beautiful Grayson,

As of January 10, 2012, you are 2 months old. Hold me now. When did that happen?

You had your two month well baby appointment and you’re weighing in at 11 pounds, 9.5 ounces (30th percentile), you are 22 ¼ inches long (20th percentile) and your head is off the charts at 16 inches (98th percentile). This last part is obviously the result of your ridiculously large and brilliant brain.

The last month is tied with your first month for the best month of my life. You really blossomed this month. Gone is my tiny helpless newborn and in its place is a gorgeous infant who makes me ridiculously happy. I have to pinch myself all the time because I wonder how I got so lucky to have you as my son?

This month we celebrated your first Christmas and your first new year. It was incredible. Christmas as an adult was always okay, but now that I have a child it is so much more exciting. You were showered with gifts and everyone loved you.

This month your personality has totally blossomed. You are now smiling and cooing. When we put you flat on your back you move your arms and legs a mile a minute just testing them out. You’re starting to realize that you can control your own arms and legs and you’ve having a ball trying them out. Your smile melts our hearts. When you were a newborn, you smiled in your sleep all of the time, but now you are showing us purposeful smiles. The best part of my day is when you smile back at me in the mornings, right after you nurse and before we get out of bed to start our day.

You totally recognize me (this started at around 7 weeks) and you’ll track me and my voice around the room. During your first month of life, you were quite fussy in the evenings, but even that changed during month two. You still fuss sometimes, but we will either change arm position, give you a binky or try another trick and you usually stop fussing immediately.

You continue to be weary about bath time. You never cry during your bath, but you just stare at us with a furrowed brow and give us a look that can only read, “seriously, what is this?” Instead, you prefer to sit in your bouncer, play on your activity mat and being carried around the house looking at all the shiny objects.

Your favorite toy is definitely the mirror attached to your activity mat. You could stare at yourself for a long, long time. Who could blame you though? You are seriously adorable.

Sleep wise, at around week 5, life changed drastically. We didn’t really do anything different but you just started sleeping longer. You now sleep (knock on wood) from about 9:30pm until sometime between 3-5am. You get up and nurse, and then you usually fall back asleep until 7:30. You still sleep in our room in the rock n play, and I’m not sure that I’ll ever be able to move you out (ha).

My dear sweet Grayson, my heart swelled when you were born- so much so -that I thought it might burst. Instead, my love for you continues to knock me off of my feet and continues to grow each and every day. It’s funny because people always told me, just wait until you have a kid. The love will change your life. I just listened to them and thought yeah, yeah, I’ve loved before. I’m so grateful for the experience of having a child. It has forever changed me and opened my heart.

Thank you, Grayson, for teaching me about this love.

I love you sweet boy!
