.2 Months.

2 Months went by in the blink of an eye. 
Luckily, he is still a baby...but man has he gotten BIG!

We went in for his 2 month check up yesterday. I had guessed he was going to be between 12.5 and 13 lbs. 
Here are his stats:

12lbs 12.2oz (75%)
22inches (50%)
Head: 16.1in (70%)

I haven't ever had a big baby before, having had girls before him. So it is weird for me to have a baby just about outgrow his 0-3 month clothes at 2 months vs the 4 or 5 months with my girls.

He got the normal 3 shots and 1 oral vaccination. Thanks to his jaundice that he is still showing physical signs of (his chest is still a bit yellow, according to the Dr.) he had to get his blood drawn as well. It wasn't a little heel poke this time either, they had to draw it from his arm. Let's just say, it was emotionally taxing on me. Especially now that they have you hold your little one on your lap while they give them their shots.
I swear, I saw the first needle coming at him and my first reaction was to knock it out of the nurses hand. Good thing she was quicker than me ;)

Greyden has not been big on smiling until about a week and a half ago. Now he will smile at just about anybody, but Daddy still gets the biggest smiles he can give.

I love this picture of my 3 babies. Greyden's face is PRICELESS.

Greyden has been such a blessing to our family. He is such a calm, mellow and loving baby. My favorite time of the day is when he falls asleep in my arms and just wants to snuggle with me for nap time.

Aaron and I have talks a lot about how special this little guy is. He has definitely completed our family (for now) and brought us all closer together. I couldn't imagine life without him.

.7 Weeks.

The past 7 weeks have been nothing short of amazing. I am so in love with my little man! 

Nap Time favorite :)

Greyden is a serious baby. He rarely cracks a smile for you and if he does, you had to work pretty hard for it.
He is such a little snuggle bug. He has to be snuggled up as close as he can get to me when he falls asleep at night...or any time for that matter.
He spends most of his day either in my arms (with a tight grip on my shirt) or in the Baby Bjorn. I can sometimes sneak him into his swing for a quick nap, but those occasions are rare. 
He is definitely a Momma's boy, but he sure loves his Daddy too.
He knows his Daddy's voice well and will turn his head towards Daddy's voice whenever he hears him. 
I assume he doesn't mind bath time too much because he never cries when he is in the tub. Like I said though, he is always so serious so it's hard to tell what he truly likes.

Greyden's Poker Face

We feel so lucky to have this little guy as a part of our family.
