Dear Santa,

 This is what Grayson left Santa…  And this was the letter that Santa left Grayson…  Dear Grayson, Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas! Merry First Christmas! We have all been anxious to meet you! I hope you don’t mind, but while you were sleeping I took a picture of you on my i-phone. I…

3 Months!

Adventures in Hank Proofing

I know, I know. It’s coming. We will need to baby proof the house. Put locks on the cabinets, pick up anything breakable in the reach of little hands, cover sharp corners. Yeah, yeah, yeah- EASY. The real challenge comes almost every day when we leave our 100 pound beast in the house while we…

Christmas Came Early

Smile Watch 2010: We have a SMILE!  The best picture I could get with my phone with a crazy-bright flash  Now, I have to be honest. This was not his first smile. Friday night, Grammie (my mom) and Rebecca babysat while I went to a fundraiser at Ryan’s school. Grayson slept the entire time I…

Just to see you smileI’d do anythingThat you wanted me toAnd all is said and doneI’d never count the costIt’s worth all that’s lost Just to see you smile -Tim McGraw Grayson is a “serious baby”. He takes in his world with an inquisitive look on his face, and I can tell he takes the…

Why It's a Good Thing My Kid is a Boy: Reason 2

Reason 2: The Activities I know this is in contradiction to my obsession with baby girl clothes- frills, bows, tutus, tights…but I really don’t like girly “activities”. I never took ballet as a child, and never had any desire to. I don’t like putting on makeup or doing my hair-I do it every day I like…

Why It's a Good Thing My Kid is a Boy: Reason 1

 I think my Grayson is the most amazing baby, and I love him so much it hurts. I also love that he really looks like a little boy, as many people have commented. Some babies you really can’t tell, but with Grayson, it’s obvious. I will admit though, before I was pregnant and before…

Happy Thanksgiving!

I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It has all the feel-good togetherness and yummy food as Christmas, without all the stress of shopping, over-decorating, and overwhelming hype. We’ve had a really relaxing day so far. I’ve been awake off and on since 3:30 AM- Grayson was fussing a little but it wasn’t feeding time,…

2 Months!

Grayson turned 2 months old yesterday! He is still a tiny peanut, weighing in right at 9 pounds, but he continues to take his one and only job of growing very seriously. Considering exactly 8 weeks ago he had gotten down to 4 pounds, 9 ounces, he is doing fantastic! Sadly, I packed up most…

Church and Separation Anxiety

We went to church for the first time as a family this morning, and I have to say, it was successful! Grayson is a VERY good baby- he rarely cries unless he’s really hungry or just wants to be picked up and held. However, I had this fear that as soon as we entered the…
