in his fourth month, grayson reed has learned to laugh, grab things (though he can't let go yet) and roll from his back to his tummy. he smiles when he sees his sister, and still prefers to be swaddled and rocked to sleep. he weighed 16 pounds and 7 ounces and was 26 inches long at his checkup on monday. ellie was almost exactly that size at six months. my big baby boy. he likes his sassa, though not as much as ellie did or does. he mostly likes to be held. if he could be held all day, he'd be happy. he has still only had breastmilk, though i think we'll try some cereal pretty soon. he likes to hear his own voice and will often stop to chat and grin in the middle of nursing sessions. he (and i) are still battling thrush. we found out monday he has another case. he sleeps through the night randomly, and has for the past two nights -- 12 hours and 9.5 hours. his baby days seem to be going by faster than ellie's did. everything seems to be going so fast.
