Two Months!


I can't believe how times flies when there is a baby in the house! I know I've said that numerous times but, really, I still can't believe it. Grayson is doing very, very well. He's eating like a champ and growing like a little weed! He has his two month 'well check-up' next week and I'm looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. I love seeing how much weight he's gained and how much he's grown, but this will be the appointment where he receives his first round of vaccinations. Everyone says it's worse for the parents than the baby because of the screaming and crying and I'll just have to keep telling myself that- that he isn't in as much pain as it seems. For this appointment we will see Dr. LaMothe since Dr. Jill was booked for the month. A very good friend of mine went to Dr. LaMothe when she was a kid and said she never cried when she got a shot- I loved hearing that he is a great shot giver! I think you'll all agree with me when I say that a shot has so much to do with the Dr/nurse who gives it. Sometimes you barely feel it and sometimes it feels like they're using you as their own personal voodoo doll; just jabbing away! I'll be sure to update you all with his new height and weight once we know. Matt did jump on the scale with him last week and according to our unofficial measurement he was 13.6 pounds!!! This means it's time for his medium gDiapers! He's turned into quite a little super soaker and the smalls didn't stand a chance. We switched him into his mediums last night and so far so good. They look a little big on him but so did the smalls only 6 weeks ago!!

Here are some pictures of the past few weeks. We've been busy!

He was definitely the best dressed at Easter!


He's had lots of good chats with his new best friend, Duckington Duckworth III.


He went swimming for the first time and L-O-V-E-D it!


He took some seriously cute pictures with Dad.


Got lots of silly hair-do's in the bath!

Alfalfa!

Bath time wouldn't be nearly as much fun if he didn't have as much hair as he does!

We have some fun trips coming up in the next two months. We'll be going down to Palm Springs with my mom for a few days for Mother's Day and then in mid-May we're going up to Napa with some friends for a small concert. Sarah and Taylor will be coming with us to watch Grayson while Matt and I go see a band we both loved in college, Jackopierce. Then, we're headed out to Oklahoma for the first week in June! On our way back we're stopping in Denver to see Farris, Beth and Cooper- Cooper and Grayson are going to be best friends, they just don't know it yet!

On another note, we've got some great news- Matt was just accepted into business school at UC Davis!!! Davis was his first choice since it's pretty close to Carmel (about a three hour drive) and has strong connections with the business community in our area. So, it looks like another move is in our near future but hopefully we'll be coming back to the area once he's done with school- and, of course, visiting very often! We've got some great friends here who went to Davis as undergrads and they have nothing but amazing things to say about the town. I've never seen the town so I'm looking forward to spending the day up there when Matt goes back to sit in on a class. It's in the Sacramento Valley, pretty much in between San Francisco and Tahoe. The weather will certainly be different- the average summer temps are in the 90's in... the average summer temperature in Carmel is somewhere in the high 60's/low 70's.

I think that's about it for now!
