*3 Months*

I can't believe my baby boy is 3 months old! As I type this a million things are running through my head of what he has done this past month. I am sure I will forget so many things as he is growing up by the day and I can barely keep up! Here's a shot at what all month 3 entailed...

*3 Months* Weight: 12 lbs. 13 oz.

Height: 24 inches

Clothes Size: 3 Months... he is quickly growing out of 0-3 months!

Diaper Size: Size 1

What Grayson Likes: He loves his new mobile Nonna bought him for her house... it lights up and makes designs on the ceiling and has so many fun noises. He just stares and stares! He also loves to conversate. He just talks and talks! He has a broad vocabulary such as "I good", "I giggle" and "Oh wooow!" He is also getting to be a pretty active boy... after lying somewhere for a minute he is over it and wants to sit up or stand. I will hold his hands and he pulls up with his neck like get me up, let's go!! It is also so funny when we change his clothes it tickles him so much up by his neck and he holds his mouth wide open and giggles! Yes, giggles! We are going to have a giggler soon:)

What Grayson Dislikes: He hates burping! He burps every 2 oz. and does not like it a bit. He cries so loud (& sticks out the pouty lip) and then gets really quiet right before he's about to burp... then it's immediately like ok where is my milk!! He also hates the hiccups. He gets so mad at them!! I hate it for him because there's not much I can do! Other than that we have a pretty happy boy on our hands!

Best Moment This Month: I would have to say it is definitely when my sister came in town and got to see Grayson! It is so hard her living so far away. There have been so many times since her last visit I wanted to show her all the things he was doing. I am blessed she got to come in town for a week and see little Graybear! He has one amazing aunt:) We WILL see her again soon!

This Month I: Oh boy where do I start? Well I have for sure found my hands and ever since they have been in my mouth! I also love to stick whatever I can get my hands on in my mouth. I officially suck my thumb now too! And so much for tummy time, as soon as they lay me on my tummy I like to show off and roll over! Who are these people kidding anyways, I've conquered tummy time! I hold my head up so high and am so proud to smile big and show off my tricks! I've also discovered I have pretty cool things on my outfits and I love to look down and stare at them. Momma reads books to me and I love to look at the pictures! I love the nursery rhymes the most because they are short and I only care to stare at the pictures for so long:) I take 6 oz. every 3 hours and sleep 8-10 hours at night. I've also discovered these things at the end of my legs that have some toes on them... they look pretty cool and I'm hoping to get a hold of them verrrry soon!

And because Mom couldn't pick just one photo from the 3 month photo shoot, here are a few bunch more! HA:)I got lotsa leg rolls:)See guys, I hold my head up so big! Trying to be creative..Yay for my 3 month chunky butt:) Looking like a little man... I SO happy:)
Some of my favorite moments;) Gosh, I love this boy!!!My Christmas outfit from Aunt Meg! I think I'm on both Auntie's Nice Lists fo sho! This is the face he gives me every morning when I go to get him up. I like to stretch so BIG! Ohhh stretch it out! Lazy Sundays with Momma & Dada! He does cry believe it or not! One day when I was cleaning the house I put him in his crib to get a room cleaned, I went in to check on him and this is what I found... angel.This is whatcha call full tummy = success. We experienced our first bubble bath the other night and the bubbles kept creeping up on his neck and he kept moving further and further back, it was too funny! HO! HO! HO!Daddy working with me in my bumbo seat... Googley eyes during bath time! GO TIGERS!! Like father, like son watching some Memphis basketball! My heart! This is how tummy time goes these days. Mom puts me here...I go here...and end up here! So fun!Gosh I love this boy more and more everyday! I try to update everything that goes on in a month in one blog post but it's just not possible. He is growing so much everyday and his little personality sure has bloomed! He is so happy and is just pure joy! We had a lot going on the week of Thanksgiving and he just went with the flow at all times! A Turkey Day post to come soon, but for now I am going to snuggle my little love bug! It's freezing and snow is coming down... I think me and my boys (& girl) might just snuggle all winter long!:)

Exciting News...

and NO I am not pregnant! Haha, that's not even funny! :) But I do have some news I am really excited to share!... I no longer have to go back to work full time! YAY!!! I am so thankful to have a wonderful, hardworking hubby that is allowing me to stay home and raise our sweet Graybear! I will be working part time at the OLEC in Germantown in the nursery, but I get to take Grayson with me for free!! I feel so blessed to have come across this opportunity. I have been praying for a long time that God would show me what was in his plan for me and I feel He lead me in this direction. He probably also spared me my sanity because I am pretty sure someone would have had to check me into a looney bin if I had to leave Grayson for 8 hours a day. I really give props to all Moms that go back to work full time because I don't think I could do it! I will miss all my friends at Mueller, they were so good to me during my pregnancy and so excited to meet Grayson! But I will visit often:) I am excited to work with kids and for Grayson to meet some new friends! I cannot quit thanking God for this new chapter I am about to begin! I hope everyone is having a great week! I will leave you with this little boy that smiles all day, everyday these days:)

My Daddy is like SOO funny!! This was his reaction when I told him how soon Aunt Lindsey would be here:)

Trick or Treat!~

We had such a fun Halloween! Friday night Chris & I had our first night out as both Grandma's kept Grayson. Being the first time out, we couldn't choose just one and we knew they would have a great time together! How blessed I feel to have that:) Chris & I brainstormed for the perfect attire for the Willam's costume party and came up with a biker guy & girl. We were at my parent's house when we decided on this and my Dad all the sudden started pulling out a helmet, leather vest, jacket, chaps, etc... I had no clue he secretly had a full biker wardrobe with no bike?? haha! He has a good friend that rides a lot so I'm assuming he passed some down. Who knows, but it was awesome! Chris was geared up to go in no time! I moseyed on down to the Recycle Biker Shop in Collierville and a nice lady helped me get my attire together. She saw me with a baby in tow and far from a biker chick and decided I needed some help. Thanks to her I was set! Take a look and get a good laugh... vrrooomm vrrooom!!

Grayson is saying who is this crazy lady?!@ the par-tay! *Please note Mary & Joseph :) so funny! The Millers!
Here we have the beast, Harley Davidson, Cousin Eddie & Clark Kent. Such a fun time!! Richard Simmons and his workout girl! Mr. ScarecrowRoasting marshmellows by the bonfire Hands down, best costume the pinata and her mexican! This was by far 2nd best, he even had the exact shirt from The Hangover... loved it! {He must have sat baby down to rest...} Well, wait I think we have a tie for 2nd. Alicia is so creative! Look at her cute preggo self:)On Sunday, Miss Leighton May Bailey came over to show off her precious little cat costume! Grayson wanted to dress up too so we had a little photo shoot. We couldn't quite get it right... Grayson saying: "It's okay Ley Ley, you're a pretty cat!" As close as we could get to happiness:) "Ahh, I'm over it!"So spooky in his Halloween outfit~On Monday night we went to The Harrisons to trick or treat! It was so much fun and they had a great turn out. There were so many little kids there, I loved seeing all the costumes! I can't wait for all the fun years to come with these little ones...

The spread, so cute! I made the hotdog mummies or what Chris & I said looked like terrorist dogs:)I watched these boys beat up on each other for quite a while and thought oh lawwdy look what's in store for me! That little dino kept getting knocked down, poor thing!!The sweet little duck, Luke & Michael who had an awesome costume!2 of the little princesses, Riley & Ramsey! My boys:)Mason, the "big bad wolf" scary, huh?:)Emilee and her sweet little puppy, Emerson! Precious Cameron~ Graham, the purple people eater.
