Dear Grayson (2 months)

Little Grayson,

Two months has flown by and we are loving every minute of it! You are such a strong little man and are so aware of your surroundings. You are tracking us with your eyes and you also started smiling! You still really love looking up at the fan but are most happy when you can stand up and check out the world like the rest of us.
Trying to capture your blue eyes! Also, you have a sweet little birthmark on your back - you can see on  the picture above.

Happy little man!

What did we do this past month?
- First visit to State Fair of Texas
- 2nd Family photo session
- Went on your first walk/run (without carseat)
- Your baptism
- Trick-or-treating - well you kinda just slept in the baby bjorn
- Lots of dining out with friends
- First pumpkin carving party
- Trip to Houston - You did so well in the car! You slept 3 hours, ate then went back to sleep! So easy!
- Stayed in childcare during MOPs. I am basically a room over and I come back to nurse you when it is time. You are the youngest one in there and they love love love taking care of you. They say that you like to try and do what the older babies are doing! So cute!

You aren't exactly on a set schedule as it is still pretty early and I am just trying to take notice of what you want to do naturally. I won't force you on a schedule but I am pretty sure you will settle into your own here in a month or so. You still nap between each feeding - sometimes longer than others. The longest nap being midday, which is nice because that is when Ryan goes down too.

As for your eating, I am nursing for about 4-5 hours a day which is 8 - 10 sessions (depending on how your nights and evenings go). For a while you were getting up around 12:30am, 2:30am, 4:30am, and 6:30am....that makes for a long night! About halfway through the month you dropped the 12:30am feeding - thank you. During they day you eat about every 2-3 hours up until about 5pm and then you want to eat constantly until your bedtime (this makes it very difficult for mommy to make dinner). At 8pm one of us gives you a 3 ounce bottle of breast milk (this is your last feeding). Sometimes you drink it all and sometimes you don't.

Thumbs up
-Watching your brother
-Being outside
-Baby Bjorn
-Bath time

Your brother Ryan thinks its so funny when he hears you fill up your pants. He yells "Yucky" or "Poopy"and is always there to call out a toot...I am sure there will be many more farts in my future with you boys. Ryan also loves to rock you when you are in your car seat and is always helping you out with your pacifier. When I ask him to play with you he will (it doesn't last long, but not much does with a two year old) - he tries to put toys in your hands and sometimes he even dances for you. It's pretty darn cute! Loving you boys so much!

Look how much you have grown!

And you and your brother at two months:

No denying y'all are related! 

Love you so much and can't wait to see what the next month has in store for us!

xoxo, mommy
