Grayson is 6 Months (A bit late)

Dear Grayson,

 

I know I say this every month, but seriously—how are you 6 months old already? I fondly remember the tiny little thing that I brought home from the hospital so long ago.  I often miss how you would curl up onto my chest all day long for your daily cat naps.  Although I miss the newborn stage, I wouldn't change a thing because the Grayson that we have now is just SO much fun. 

 

You are so alert. You are so interactive and you smile at daddy and I like we are the funniest/best/most entertaining things that you have EVER seen.  Every day when I pick you up from daycare you are looking at the door just waiting for me.  When we lock eyes your smile is infectious.  You really recognize us now.  There's no doubt that you recognize your own name as well.  When we start saying G-R-A-Y, your head immediately turns and scans the room until you can find the source.  

 

You seriously light up my life.  I often wonder how I lived before you?

 

This month you've battled croup (again) and you've grown a bit more.  You currently weigh 16 lbs, 7oz (30th percentile), you are 26.5 inches long (50th percentile), and your head is in the 75th percentile.  You continue to wear size 2 and 3 diapers and you can still fit in your 3 month Carters onesies.  You also wear sizes 3-6, 6, and some 9 month things.  You still only have the same two teeth that came in shortly after your four month mark.  You now eat solids—2 meals a day (we added the second meal at 5 months, 3 weeks).  You get a fruit and cereal at daycare and then I feed you a veggie every night.  You are a huge fan. So far you've had peas, green beans, applesauce, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas, pears, peaches, and mangos.  You do not discriminate and love them all equally.  You still nurse as well and that continues to go really well.  I'm pumping two times a day at work and so far so good!

 

You are sleeping a bit better, but you still nurse at least once at night, usually between 1:30-4am.  Although you've been rolling for awhile, you now roll like a maniac.  You roll the second we try to change your diaper and/or dress you.  You are one SQUIRMY worm.  You've learned how to roll in the pack n play as well, which makes for some restless and sleepless nights.  Despite knowing how to roll, you aren't in love with sleeping on your stomach.  That does NOT stop you from flipping over onto it every single time I lay you on your back.

 

Not only do you roll, but you're also learning to scoot.  You start by getting yourself into a downward dog position and then moving yourself forwards. I am SO not ready for this.  You are way too little to be acting this big.  The downward dog thing is hysterical.  You've also started to try sitting on your own for a few seconds at a time.  In fact, you started doing this more consistently on mothers day—2 days after you turned six months. 

 

We introduced you to grass and the swings this month, with a picnic at the park.  You love being outside.  You LOVE the animals.  One look at Polly, O'Snap or Sage puts an immediate smile on your face.  You love reaching out the grab their fur and they generally tolerate you.   

 

You love the song the Itsy Bitsy Spider, you love reading books, and you love to squeal.  For some strange reason, you REALLY love when we smell your feet and say "pee-yew, Graby. You stink."  Language wise, you stick to mamammama or shrieking.  You also love your exersaucer and will play in there long enough for us to eat dinner.  You still love to eat your toes, and you love any toy that you can get your hands on.

 

You still have a million nicknames--  Gray, Gray Gray, Graby, Boo, Boo Bear, Bug, Buggy. I call you Grayson on occasion.  You are still gorgeous too! Your eyes are still piercingly blue and your lips are totally kissable.  Too kissable! Although now when I say, "Grayson, can I have a kiss?" you know to lean in for one (well, at least half the time when you aren't distracted).

 

The coolest thing about you is just how happy you are.  Your personality is really coming out and I love watching you grow and change every single day.  I didn't think it would be possible to love you any more than I did the second I met you, but I do.  There's nothing like it.  Nothing can top you sweet boy.  You're still the best thing I've ever done!
 
Love,
Ashley
