The Many Faces of Grayson

I mean really? Have you seen a happier baby getting his diaper changed??

'Hey mom! Are you about to change my diaper? I've got something for ya!'

'Thanks for wiping my butt!'

'I LOVE my new diaper!! New diapers are my favorite!'

On another note, we just got back from Grayson's two month well check-up. He took the vaccinations like a champ and now he's dozing off in his swing.

The big news is that he is 14 pounds and 24 3/4 inches, with a 41 1/4 cm head!!! He's a BIG BABY! Up FIVE pounds from his last appointment at one month- as the Dr. put it, I have some 'high octane' milk! His weight and height put him in the 90th percentile and his head is in the 75th. Looks like his body is catching up with his big ol' head!

Now that he weighs so much we are definitely starting to see more consistent sleeping patterns. His stretches at night have topped out at about 5 hours, the longest being almost 6! So, it's true- they actually DO start sleeping through the night at some point! Grayson is usually asleep around 9:30 and then wakes up at about 2:30-3 am for a feeding and then it's back to 2 1/2-3 hr stretches. It's amazing what 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep can do! We are really lucky to have a breastfed baby who sleeps so well!
