One Month

Our little Grayson is already a month old. Time sure has flown by. He has changed so much. When he was born he weighed 9lbs 2oz. When we left the hospital he weighed 8lbs 11oz. He had his 1 week wellness check on November 13th. He was down to 8lbs 9oz. Dr. Whittenberg said he looked great. Here's some pictures from his first appointment:

He wasn't too happy about this.

Grayson's 2 week wellness check was November 20th. It was also the day I was able to start driving again. He gained 1/2oz in a week. When the nurse measured him she said he was 20 3/4 inches long. Which is weird because the hospital measured him at 21 1/2 inches long. She said they always get different measurements than they do. Weird. I still need to try measuring him myself. While we were there he went there he went through several diapers. At one point he started spraying everywhere. lol That's a boy for ya.

You can see his cute little belly button. His umbilical cord fell off the night before.

Notice anything out of the ordinary? Perhaps the huge wet spot. He some how leaked out of his diaper as I was taking his picture. I noticed the wet spot through my view finder.

Grayson had his 1 month wellness check on December 4th. He is now back up to his birth weight 9lbs 2oz. The nurse measured him and he was 21 1/2 inches long. The doctor checked him over and said he looked great. That's exactly what I like to hear.

Grayson now will follow you with his eyes, at time's sounds like he's trying to talk to you, grab onto you, and smiles often when he's awake. I've probably missed something. One not so good thing he's doing is not sleeping well through the night. Right now he has his days and nights mixed up. There's the update on my little boy.


  1. Is he ever adorable!!! I love his facial expressions.

    Off topic - what sort of camera do you use?

  2. I love your pictures! He is sooo cute. Glad everything is going so well :) I hope he gets his days and nights sorted soon, Rylee was like that at first too and it wasn't fun at alL!

  3. I love love LOVE the collage picture with all his awesome expressions. I love the one where he's like "say WHAT?!" Haha.

    Good to hear he's doing well in the health department. Now he just has to work on going to sleep at NIGHT instead of DAY!

  4. Awww Adrian! He is so darn cute and adorable! He favors both of you, a real good mixture. Gosh he's so cute and looks so happy! I like the ones of you and him. Your Dr. looks like he's a very nice man. I'm glad everything is well,I knew it would be! :) Daniel got his days and nights mixed up when he was about 3 1/2 months,but thankfully we straightened it out. You did great on the collage picture! I'm still printing out pics of Daniel. hehe

  5. I'm glad to hear everything is going so well!

  6. You already have such beautiful pictures of Grayson! He is just adorable. :)

    Glad to hear everything is going well.

  7. I'm glad his month check-up went well! I was gonna say maybe his length defers because people in general are taller in the morning than in the night or after noon. Gravity compresses the spine. It may be the same with babies. So in the morning you are taller than you are in the afternoon. Love you both!

  8. He is darling!!! I need to catch up on all your posts, so expect a few more from me, I missed so much with my move!

    I LOL'd at the wet spot, William always did that with his diapers too, had to point downwards. He even peed out the sides before. I had the hardest time with leaking through with my boy.

    I'm glad everything is going well, I've been thinking about you and your little family.
