Eat Too Much

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Last night my mommy and daddy thought I had a hollow leg. I ate and ate and ate until my tummy was hard as a rock. I started eating at 6:30pm and was done about 10pm. I did give mommy some breaks in between, but they couldn’t believe how much I was eating and not getting full. I call it “packing it in” before night night time.

Talk to you all soon.

Grayson is sleeping in his room now

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

After 3 successful nights, Grayson has now permanently moved to his room for sleeping at night. We use a baby monitor to “keep tabs” on him, but now he doesn’t have to be bothered by my (or Cher’s snoring :-)   ).  We also get better sleep, because we’re not jumping at every little sound he makes.  The monitor lets us know when he’s starting to cry, but we don’t hear every little gurgle or grunt.

Grayson is a wonderful baby!  He hardly cries at all, and usually just when he’s hungry (can’t say that I blame him).  His feeding periods are still ranging between 2-3 hours and he definitely inherited his Dad’s appetite.   He’s active several times a day and loves to look around with his big blue eyes. Aside from more hair, his appearance really hasn’t changed much.

More to come….

I got an A+ from the Dr.

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

We visited the Pediatrician today for my 2 week checkup.  I have gained 7 ounces since our last visit, bringing me up to 8 lbs, 1 oz, 7 ounces more than my birth weight.  The Dr. says I’m doing great, and developing right on schedule.  I’m still measuring 20.5 inches, but we’re thinking that the hospital number measured “long” and that I’ve actually grown some.  :-)

I also got my Hep B shot today.  It hurt, and I cried for a moment, but then I was ok.  Daddy says I am a real trooper!  Mom and Dad will keep an eye out for soreness or an elevated temperature for the next few days, but I don’t expect any problems.

Thanks to all the friends and family that have supported us during this journey!!  The prayers, the meals, the love, the advice, and the support have been and continue to be greatly appreciated. 

Cher and I are learning new things daily, if not hourly and just trying to make it day by day (and night by night).  We’re still adjusting to working on 6 hours of thrice interrupted sleep per night, and taking naps when we can.  We’ve also realized that our previous concerns about Grayson never being able to wear all of the ‘newborn’ outfits that he has were very naive.  With his food intake increasing, the output has also increased and the diapers don’t always keep it all in, especially the liquid portion.

For all those interested, we’ll try to document our experiences, learnings, and of course, Grayson’s progress here in his blog of a regular basis.

Hello Everyone!

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

My name is Grayson, and this is my blog.  It will be a while before I’m old enough to make my own entries, so Mom and Dad will be doing the typing for a while.  Hopefully they’ll put some interesting (but not too embarrassing) stuff.  :-)
