2 months (and 1 week).

i'm a bad mommy, and i didn't post on gray's 2-month birthday last tuesday. to my credit, i was fasting from blogs (shannon, you are hilarious. truly. no hard feelings at all.) so i wasn't going to post on that day. but my fast ended last thursday and...yeah. just now making it happen.

grayson was 2 months on oct. 7, and he is such a big boy. he was 13 pounds 15.5 ounces and 23.5 inches long at his checkup. we are officially in size 2 huggies. as a comparison, ellie was 10 pounds 6 ounces at her 2-month checkup. sheesh. he is smiling like crazy, but still elluding the camera on that one. his latest trick is to goo and coo. it's the sweetest sound i know. he loves to be cuddled and swaddled. he teased me last week and slept through the night for three nights in a row. but three was his max. he hasn't done it again. he has been going 4 or 5 hours between feedings sometimes. last night he was up every 3 hours, on the dot, however. sigh.

he is truly a joy, and my heart bursts to think he is my son. my heart also breaks to think of him getting bigger and having to venture out from mama's safe arms.

ellie loves her little brother and has really been nothing but sweetness to him. she smothers him with kisses, is amazingly concerned any time he's crying and is always saying in the most loving voice, "hi, dc!" (said with a little girl lisp, that's what her version of grayson sounds like.) i often sit in the living room with the two of them in the middle of the day and think, "how did i end up with such a great life?" grayson has exponentially increased the huge joy that is my family.

a pretty impressive feat, my little man. i love you more than all the stars in the sky.

chillin' on his birthday.

purple mouth and a bit of spit up. but look at those baby blues!

nothing sweeter.
