.My Big Little Guy.

Greyden had his final jaundice check on Thursday.

His levels were down to 4.3 YAY!! 

I was originally told to stop breastfeeding him for 24 hours to ensure it went away when I took him in for his check up last month. I had done research on this particular topic and had actually had the Dr. before tell me that it would clear up on it's own. Her son had breastmilk jaundice as well and she did not stop breastfeeding.

Well, I did NOT stop nursing him and everything has gone exactly as my research had said. 3 months and it is pretty much gone.

At his check up he weighed in at a healthy 15lbs 6oz!! He is now officially in 6-9 month clothes although 3-6 month pants will still fit him...he has a nice long torso like his Daddy.

.Greyden's Blessing.

Aaron blessed Greyden back on September 25th. 

It was a very special day, as this was the first baby Aaron has blessed.

Greyden was wide awake throughout the blessing and didn't make a sound.

Aaron was joined in the circle by our friend/neighbor Preston, Grandpa Cutler, his Dad, all of his brothers, brother-in-law Chase, his cousins John & James (I think...I can't remember for sure) and the bishop. 

Afterwards we had a little get together over at Grandma & Grandpa Cutlers.

.3 Months.

My little boy is now 3 months old!! We are enjoying this little guy SOOO much!! 

*He LOVES to smile and gives the best smiles ever. It melts my heart every time.
*He loves to "talk" with Mommy and Daddy. I will lay on the floor with him and we will have little conversations that last a few minutes. 
*He has been in his 3-6 month clothes since he was 2 months old. He is definitely growing like a boy. He weighed 1 oz less at his 2 month check up than Lily did at her 4 month check up.
*He loves to be held and demands that I hold him most of the day. I can lay him down now while he sleeps, although I still enjoy it when he takes a nap in my arms every once in a while.
*He is on the verge of learning to laugh...he will definitely be laughing within the next couple of weeks.
