Life changing

I should be taking a nap with Grayson right now since he's asleep, but I'm not. He's asleep on my chest and all I want to do is watch him sleep. Its the most precious thing. Earlier he was making the cutest noises. I should seriously be sleeping. I keep telling myself he won't be this small for long so enjoy it now. I don't want to regret not taking time to enjoy the small things with him.

Grayson has been so much fun to watch. He's smiling more now. Sometimes he will actually smile back at you. I love it! There have been times where his smile has brought tears to my eyes. I get so overwhelmed with the love that I have for him that I can't help but cry.

He has been making some of the cutest sounds such as arrrgh(like a little pirate) and grrr. He usually follows those sounds with a smile or a smirk. I hope to catch it on video one day. He's doing so great at holding his head up longer. Its amazing that he's been doing that since the day he was born. The difference now is that he's not near as wobbly. He does get a bit wobbly if he's been holding his head up for a longer period of time. Yesterday I laid him on his play mat for tummy time. I moved his arms to help him be propped up. He did great at holding his head up. I tried to get a video but it died. Later last night while Nathan was holding him, he used his arms to push off of Nathan. Grayson had himself propped up on his Daddy for a good 5 minutes. He's used arms before but this was different. My boy is growing up! He will be 2 months old next Tuesday.

Grayson has also chuckled some. There have been times where it seems like he is laughing at me. Especially if I've done something not so smart. :)

One of the funniest things about him is how much gas he has. I know I sound terribly childish perhaps but its hilarious. You may be sitting there holding him having this tender moment and then all you hear is this loud roar. I never knew something so loud could come out of somebody so small. He passes gas like a champ. Those stretches really bring it out. I catch myself giggling when he passes gas while nursing. I laugh even harder when he hikes up his leg and lets one rip. If he only knew. Then again I do have a boy. haha

There have been times now where he will beat on me while nursing. It was funny at first but now its starting to hurt. Okay I still laugh some. He seriously has little hands of furry. He's always moving. He's going to be so active when he grows up. Heck when he starts crawling I probably won't be able to even catch up with him. Sometimes I wonder if he will pass crawling and go right to walking. Whenever he's being held upright he will use those legs and hold himself up. He's climbed up me a few times. He's so strong. Its unbelievable.

Motherhood is life changing. Its the best feeling in the whole world!


  1. Aww he sounds so sweet! It's amazing how fast they grow up. Daniel will be 1 next month!!!

  2. hard to believe it's been almost two months! precious, precious memories. some of my favorite times with babies are when they make "cooing" sounds. enjoy when you can, like trace adkins' sings "you're gonna miss this".

  3. This is such a sweet entry. It is crazy that he's already been here 2 months. It's like he's been here forever in some ways but in other ways it's like he is just so brand new (which he is). It's scary to think by the time I graduate he'll be almost two (yikes!). Time flies to quickly.

  4. What a beautiful post. Gave me goosebumps, I'm so happy that things have been going smoothly for you.
