Kathryn Dee Clark

It is with a sad and heavy heart I share that Chris's grandma and Grayson's great grandma passed away on Saturday. I thank the Lord she did not have to suffer any longer, however goodbyes are never easy. Chris, Grayson & I went and visited her on Thursday and I will never forget how many times she said "he's so cute!" Those words will replay over and over in my head. She was a sweet, sweet lady and couldn't keep her hands off Grayson for the small amount of time she got to see him. I know she's so happy up there in heaven and I can't help but think she is telling Bibbie and Grandmother Gunn allll about their sweet little Grayson. Please pray for the Clark family as they grieve and celebrate her precious life. We love you Grandmother Clark and we will see you again some day...

And to bring a little smile to your face... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! =)

*2 Months*

My little baby boy is 2 months old! I cannot believe it! I know it is weird, but everytime he has a "first" it's bittersweet to me because I am happy yet sad he is growing up! Haha, I probably should get a life because I know it has only just begun! These have been the best 2 months of my life! Chris & I are still beside ourselves on this sweet little blessing. I know I am biased, but he really is a great baby! Let me share with you all the things I want to brag about at this 2 Month update:)

*2 Months!* Weight: 10lbs 4 oz (25th percentile)

Height: 22 1/4 inches (25th percentile)... he's a little bit:)

Clothes Size: 0-3 Months

Diaper Size: Size 1

What Grayson Likes: Lately Grayson has really been digging attention. He is rarely fussy, but when he is he usually just wants to play or conversate! He is an active little fella! He loves to stand on your legs and bounce & do what we call the "hoola hoop". He loves his crib sound toy which allows Mommy to sneak in a shower! He loves when you play with your tongue and make funny noises and he also loves the kissy noise! He can hear Momma & Daddy's voice from a mile away and lights up when he hears it. He smiles so big when Momma says "Hi buddy!" & Daddy gets his ear! He has also learned to love his booger sucker. At our 1 Month update I think I said he hated it, well maybe now he realizes Mommy really does have good intentions behind that thing:) He also loves having his head rubbed and loves bath time!!

What Grayson Dislikes: Grayson does not like getting lotion put on after his bath. I don't know what it is, I can warm it up in my hands and he goes from smiles to extremely upset in a split second. He also hates getting his fingernails filed... I have to sneak this in while someone else is feeding him. And I have just learned recently due to the cold weather he hates getting layered up in clothes! He just cries and cries until I get him calmed down. I feel so bad, but I can't help but laugh when he looks like Ralphie from A Christmas Story:)

Best Moment this Month: Will I ever have a month where I have just one best moment? I don't think so! Gray gives us great moments everyday, but the best are probably when Chris & I are talking to him and he answers with something that goes along with what we say. For instance, I had to go to the Harley shop today for a costume and Chris said now Graybear don't get you a motorcycle outfit yet, and he responded with a "wooow" and a big smile! I think he knows what we're saying already! HA!

This Month I: Had a lot of firsts!! I went to the zoo, had a picnic at the park and went to my first restaurant, Leonards BBQ:). I had my 2 month shots and did so great! I cried for maybe 1 min. and then didn't fuss anymore, I'm such a big boy! I have found my hands & fingers and I'm so close to sucking my thumb. I get out a lot these days with Mom while she runs errands and I am the best baby to take along. I sleep almost the whole time! I have started sleeping 7 hours through the night... woohoo!! I am taking 6 oz. every 3 1/2 hours and am growing like a weed. One more statistic to add... my head measurements were 40 & that's in the 50th percentile... maybe one day my weight & height will catch up! But for now, I'll be a little bit:)

And here we have the 2 Month photo shoot. This goes on for hours... is that normal?

Sweet little angel;)Momma making me laugh while Daddy caught some pictures... We sat him up in this chair and this is how he ended up. I bet he's thinking if you crazies are gonna take 900 pictures of me I better get comfy!I SO excited to be 2 months old!2 Much Booty... no pun intended:)Now Daddy make me laugh & Momma take some pictures, ha!Seriously Ma, enough!Here's a look back at our sweet boy this past month...

Me & my partner playing on the gym... I don't know who gets more excited about this, Copper or Grayson?! :) Posing to give Kylie a bday shout out! Just a day in the life of Grayson...I love my crib toy! Thanks Gran:) (Gray's great-grandma)Look how big I am! and even got some rolls on my legs:)sweet angel, you sure are loved!

Miami Family Visit...

This past week my Aunt Nene, Uncle Bob & 2nd cousin, Kylie came in town to visit Grayson! Kylie is obsessed with Grayson to say the least and named her baby doll "baby Grayson" way before Gray was born. She loves to help change his diaper and checks on him nonstop... it is so sweet! We had a blast while they were here and Grayson had many firsts. He even went to his first restaurant... Leonards BBQ:)

This is Grayson's new lovey from his Nene, Bob & Kylie. We named him booboohannie. That is what Nene called me when I was little so it was fitting. He loves it already!! Kylie loving on her Grayson!She was so careful when she held him. She worried our rings were going to hurt him when we held him so she made everyone take their rings off. Too funny! Nene & Nonna & the grandbabies!He is full of smiles these days!Us & our babies... yes, Kylie takes a bottle before bed, ha!Headed out for a walk...It was cold this day!
