Weight: 15 lbs
Length: 26 inches (95 percentile)
Loves: eating, sucking on his hands and chewing on toys (when he can get them into his mouth), his toy dog, Scout, Tom Petty music, Mommy’s singing, patty cake, large groups of people (he loves the sound of ambient noise), toys that make noise, watching cartoons (especially Mickey), being held, being snug in his wraps and carriers, staring in the mirror
Hates: naps, car rides, when Mommy speaks with an accent
Daddy’s Favorites: his crooked lip grin, the way he grabs your finger with his toes and the way he mimics the sucking motion in his sleep
Mommy’s Favorite: the smile I get from him first thing in the morning, the way he falls asleep when he’s in his wrap and watching him stare at everything when we’re on our walks
Grayson is finding his hands and feet and grabbing his toys now. He can’t quite get them into his mouth perfectly and that frustrates him, but he’s getting better every day. He’s smiling all the time now and sometimes acts shy when people tell him how cute he is.
He’s growing like a weed still. He’s wearing 6 month or 6-9 month clothes and his feet are so big that his 6-12 month socks no longer fit.
He’s sleeping through the night consistently now which is amazing. He does not take naps during the day, however. When he does I can only assume he’s going through a growth spurt.
His neck is so strong now. He almost has full control and he’s starting to roll over. He gets onto his side no problem (no more turning away from the changing table to grab more diapers!). He’s been able to roll onto his tummy twice, but can’t get his little arm out from under him so he gets mad. When we prop him up he tries to sit up and he loves when I help him sit up and make a robot noise.
