The 3rd Month..and Halloween

3 months!

...and Grayson's feeling a little under the weather. We're not sure if it's the on-going cold he's had, or his teeth moving around his gums...but unfortunately, he is NOT in the mood to go trick-or-treating today. SO SAD! Except, knowing that he wasn't feeling up to par, we put him in his Halloween costume yesterday while we ran our errands just in case he wasn't able to today! So, he got to wear his halloween outfit out!!

This week we did Pumpkin carving:

Ran our Errands with our Halloween Costume on:

Changed into our "Glow in the Dark" Skeleton outfit for The NASCAR Halloween Party (which he slept thru)

Played with Mom! (soooo..I'm thinking he looks a little more like me now! ha)

Some 3 month updates:

*drools like a St. Bernard. Seriously. We go through two bibs a day. Enough said.
*Has NOT mastered rolling over yet.
*Wears a size 2 Diaper
*Eats 6oz every 3-4 hrs (basically 25-30oz a day)
*Sleeps thru the night (yey!)
*Sleeps in his crib now - we kept him in his bassinet up until last weekend - he transitioned WONDERFULLY!
*He Loathes tummy time. grr. We still make him do it every day.
*He doesn't kick as much when we lay him on his back - he's busy exploring the toys above his head
*He LOVES sitting upright. LOVES it.
*Still eats his fist and will eventually end up with a thumb in there. Sooo not happy about this. We try giving him everything else to suck on: Pacifier, his Sofie Giraffe, teething rings. He'll take something else happily, but once it falls out - in goes the hand.
*He Weighs 13lbs 8oz as of last Monday
*He loves being read to

That's all I can think of right now.

Hope everyone has a great Halloween and Awesome first week of NOVEMBER!!!

Dad's Buddy

(posted a day late)

Happy Birthday Dan! Your truly the best Dad and Husband.
Grayson's going to be able to look back at these pictures some day - and I can't wait! He'll see a Dad who can't wait to get home to read him a story, play with him on his mat, and rock him to sleep.....Lucky little guy. Lucky wife. Lucky family.

We truly are *The Luckiest*

Boots with the fur

(this was Sunday...can you tell by the Sunday football wear)

So Grayson's Baptism weekend went great! I was a little sickly. Basically my nose was leaking and I had a lovely sore throat, but I managed to get through without most people knowing of my lovely sickness (other then rach...sorry rachie!!)

I get a little homesick whenever my family comes to visit - I always miss them so much and I'll get in a little funk when they leave...but this time I wasn't as sad when they left. I've come to realize that my friends are truly an extended family. It was so nice to turn around at Gray's Baptism and see everyone there. He has more "Aunts and Uncles" then he knows what to do with.

After last weekends crazyiness, this weekend - we got to run errands and relax with our Friends Fam.

A couple quick pics from the weekend:

First - Mommy and Grayson playing...

Then getting Gray ready to go out for the day

ohhhh and these? I actually think I went to every store (baby and not baby) to find some shoes for my child. Cute ones. Of course, the selection for little girls is ridiculous. I finally made it to BabyGap where I found these cuties. I finally got them ordered today!! I can't wait until I get them!! Btw, BabyGap is dangerous. Very Very Dangerous. (aka, Jess and Aunt Heder - feel free to continue sending Grayson cute clothes from there:P )
Hope everyone is having a super week!

Grayson, are you ready....

FOR THIS...........

I only hope there are moments such as "I'm not going to prom with you", "No, THIS is how you dance", "Step Bump, Step Bump Bump" and "I'm feeling a little LAAAZZY" happen this weekend.

I'm sure you're going to be supremely overwhelmed - and that's ok. It's part of being in the family. So, they're going to bring it. and bring it good this weekend.

Nothing. And I mean NOTHING makes me happier then being with my brother and sisters...and this weekend we're initiating you into this wonderful, happy, and crazy family. Uncle Al and Aunt Michelle will be there too - and they, no doubt have been part of the craziness ("I didn't ask you to prom") and will surely participate and enjoy in the festivities to come.

So hold onto your NUK, it's gonna be a long weekend:)
