Update

I am so behind on updating about Grayson. Where to start?

May 4th-5th Grayson successfully put his feet in his mouth. I can't remember if it was the 4th or 5th because Nathan is the one who witnessed it. Since then Grayson can't keep his feet away from his mouth. He's quite attached to them now.

May 6th we went to Charleston. It was Grayson's first time to the beach. He put his feet in the water on Thursday at the Isle of Palms. He absolutely loves the water. He got so excited that he started to jump up and down. He loved splashing in the water. :)

We went to his Uncle Christopher's college graduation while we were there. He did awesome! So many complimented on how well he behaved.

May 13th Grayson tried sweet potatoes for the first time. He can't get enough of them. Nathan fed them to him and he was smacking those lips. I've never seen him stick out his tongue so far. He'd follow that spoon until finally it made it to his mouth.

May 16th Grayson got on all fours then rocked back and forth for the first time. He then lunged forward. Sadly I missed his first time doing it. Nathan saw him. I turned my head for one second and that's all it took. Sunday morning the 17th Grayson did it again while we were getting ready for church. I was so happy to see him do it. Since then Grayson is constantly getting on all fours then rocking back and forth. It probably won't be too long before he starts crawling. Usually he will get on all fours then rock back and forth then lunge forward. He repeats that process several time's until he gets to where he wants to go. He moves all over the house now. Its amazing to watch him!

May 23rd he went to his first birthday party. :)

Tomorrow he will be trying green beans for the first time. I hope he likes them as much as he does his sweet potatoes.

Solids

My baby boy turned 6 months old last Wednesday! I can't believe it! Grayson tried rice cereal for the first time. It went very well. He made the funniest face when he had his first bite. It was a scrunched up look. After the first two bites he took to it well. He knew exactly where that spoon was supposed to go. He'd open up that mouth real wide when the spoon was close. At one point he grabbed the spoon and started chewing on it.

His reaction after taking a bite.







Yesterday the 13th Grayson tried oatmeal for the first time. He made a funny face but over all seemed to like it. He's doing really well with solids. Next Wednesday he will be trying sweet potatoes.


Grayson checking out his oatmeal.

He didn't think too highly of it at first.

Mmm finger licking good.

6 month checkup

Grayson won't be 6 months until Wednesday but he had his check up today. My sweet little boy weighs 15lbs 8.5 oz, is 26 3/4 inches long, and his head circumference is 17 1/2 inches. He's in the 65 percentile for length, 17 percentile for weight, and 71 percentile for his head. He's a long slender baby. Although he does have chunky legs and dimples on his elbows. Dr. Whitt said he looks great and I'm doing a wonderful job.

On Wednesday Grayson will be trying his first bite of food. He will start off with rice cereal then the following week he will try baby oatmeal. I can't wait to see his reaction towards it. Nathan will be home that day so he will get to watch. We're going to tape it and take lots of pictures. :)
