Grayson is Three Months Old!!

My Dear Sweet, Beautiful Grayson,

You continue to light up my life and my love for you continues to knock me off of my feet. I'm not sure how anyone has more than one child because I can't even imagine that my heart could grow any bigger than it is right now. You turned three months old on February 10, 2012. Because your mother is anal, I decided to take you to the doctor for a weight check (thank you, maternity leave) just to see how you are doing. You currently weigh 13lbs, 0oz (40th percentile) and are 23 1/4 inches (20th percentile) long. You are still wearing all of your 0-3 month clothing and we haven't tried to put you in any 3-6 or 6 month clothing yet. You are in size 2 diapers and thanks to very generous grandparents, your father and I just bought diapers for the first time last week.



You are such an adorable little man. I stare at you in awe of your beauty. I know that all mothers think that their babies are perfect, but you REALLY are. I love your sweet button nose. Your piercingly blue eyes. Your full, kissable lips. I thank my lucky stars that I will be able to stay on maternity leave until you are about four months because I love nothing more than spending every moment with you (don't even get me started on going back to work. It's a dagger and a heavy weight that I feel in my heart, every single day). Even when dad gets home I've never once handed you over to him and requested a break. In fact, if dad is holding you, I'm probably jealous. You are that awesome. Somehow, I was blessed with an easy going baby (funny, because I am not that easy going) and I really, really, really hope you stay this way.




Obviously, you are a baby, so you have your moments.. but even your cries are so darn cute. Your three month growth spurt was no fun. You spent three days nursing non stop and fussing quite a bit, but we made it through with smiles on our faces.

Your personality evolves and shines more and more every single day. You laugh (still without sound. I can't wait for the sound), you smile so big and you've started purposefully batting at your toys a little bit. Within the last week or two, you just want to move SO bad. If I lay you on your boppy, you will strain your little self in an attempt to sit up. You want to be sitting up and only tolerate the cradle hold when you're very sleepy now a days. My favorite moments are when you wake up from a nap or in the morning. You look around the room and as soon as you spot me, your face lights up in a giant smile. That is something that I NEVER want to forget.



Speaking of sleep. You continue to evolve and excel in that area. Your longest stretch to date (without waking to nurse) is 9 1/2 hours, but that hasn't happened very frequently yet. You generally sleep from 8:30-5:30, nurse, and then go back down until 7:30ish. We still swaddle you and you still sleep right next to our bed in the rock n play. You may still be sleeping there when you are five at this rate, because if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Although you sleep well at night, you aren't a great napper. You'll sleep and nap amazingly well during the day if I hold you in my arms (luckily, I oblige quite frequently). However, if I move you to the boppy or your swing, your eyes pop open immediately. I can tell when you need a nap because you get quite cranky, but getting you to sleep during the day takes some careful maneuvering.



You HATE driving in the car without someone sitting next to you, so I try to strategically plan my trips out alone with you by making sure you're topped off with food and a tiny bit drowsy. You don't mind short trips, but you basically scream your face off after 15+ minutes (if you don't fall asleep first). You LOVE playing on your play mat, kicking your legs, smiling, being naked, sitting in your vibrating seat, watching TV (yes, we let let you watch a little tv with us if we're watching something), listening to music (LMFAO tends to be your favorite), dancing, and taking walks. This winter has been incredibly mild- seriously, 50-60 degrees, so we've taken a lot of walks and you love looking around at the sights. You LOVE when we sing to you have we have several incredibly tragic songs about our "graby" baby and how we love you. Yes, the Graby nickname is back. Along with Nugget, Gray-Gray, G, Lil G, and Boo-Boo.

I feel so blessed that I get to watch you grow and I have to pinch myself because if all seems so surreal sometimes. In 3 short months you've morphed a million times. It's incredible (and a little TINY bit sad) how fast you have grown.



You are the best thing that I've ever done, Grayson Patrick.

I love you with every square inch of me,

Mama

He is so handsome, Ashley. It is amazing how your heart can feel so much love for a little person that you just met. I can't believe it has been 3 months already! :)

He is such a handsome little man!

Great post! He is so adorable.

Hilary Lane said...

Aww, Ashley he's adorable!! I heard the name Patrick the other day & thought, "What a cute name for a future baby of mine, hmmm..." and then quickly realized that it's the same name of Josh's sister's ex-husband... who she realized was cheating on her with another man while they were deployed overseas. Oops, Patrick will probably not fly in our family! :-)
