Five Months

Dearest Grayson,

Wow!  Five months, well really five and a half months.  Such a big boy.  I can't believe we are just a few weeks from your half year mark.  Really how has it been five and a half months already.  You have fit so perfectly into our family that we really can't imagine a time when you were not with us.

You are getting so big!  I really can not even believe it.  You probably weigh around sixteen pounds if I have to guess.  We are squeezing you into size two diapers but you are just using up the rest that we had because you really need size three.  You are in either 3 to 6 month clothes or six month clothes; however, your six month pjs probably won't fit much longer and we are about to have to move you into your six to 12 months clothes.

You are a good eater and we just started you on rice cereal a week and a half ago or so.  You are doing really great with it and by the time I write your six month post you will be eating real baby food.  You take 4 eight oz bottles a day.

You have completely mastered rolling both ways with ease.  We will put you on your little playmat and turn away.  By the time we turn back around you will be all the way across the room.  I have never seen a baby love to play as much as you do.  You LOVE toys and are constantly playing with them.  You love to reach, grab, pull and shake anything you can get your hands on.  We got your jump-a-roo out of the attic and you love it.  You jump up and down and shriek like a little teradactyl.  Shrieking is another one of your favorite activities.  We can hear you squealing and talking all throughout the house.

You are sleeping pretty good.  We finally did away with the swaddle blanket.  We have put you in a little blanket sleeper called the Zip a Dee Zip and you are doing pretty well with it.  You will sometime wake up in the middle of the night or early in the morning, but you go back to sleep easily.  Since you have learned to rollover you will flip in your sleep.  It is funny because sometimes you love it and you will sleep forever on your tummy.  Other times, if you wake up on your stomach you will freak out and grunt and cry until we come and get you or roll you over. 

You are still the absolute happiest, easiest baby I have every seen.  You love to smile and will give away smiles and giggles to whoever looks your way.  You also love to laugh.  You giggle constantly and think everything is so funny.  Especially your brother.  You love your big brother.  If he is in the room, it is pretty much a guarantee that you will be watching whatever he is doing.  You love it when he interacts with you or tickles you.  You will just laugh and laugh.

We are so luck that God sent you to us.  You are the light of my  life and you and your brother are the best thing  your daddy and I have ever done in our lives.  You are our light and our joy!


Mommy and Daddy
