This top photo was actually taken about a week ago - I'm kind of missing his long hair :( it was getting unruly though & hat weather wasn't helping. His new shorter 'do sure makes things easier in the morning & he looks neat & tidy for most of the day. Notice the bump/bruise in the top photo & the cut mark in the bottom photo? yes- this boy is trouble! he's picking up speed and literally running now, meaning that bumps are happening more frequently.
I can't believe how quickly he ages with each passing month. I know that by 18 months it's typical to be speaking 20 words. I wasn't sure Grayson was & then I started thinking about all of the words he says regularly & WOW! my boy is a chatterbox! The words I can think of that he says are : mama, dada, baba, Noah, Hannah, Owen, baby, up, treat, drink, please, thank you, pop, snack, uh oh, ball, teeth, batman, moon, goodnight, bye, soosie, broke, gone, done, book, cat, dog, peek-a-boo, moo, car, truck,cracker, drop, cow, Santa, Grandma (pronounced Gramma) & he's even said crocodile lol.
He now has a total of six teeth. Four Molars & two top front teeth. He's drooling (again/still) so I think his bottom front are starting to come.
I LOVE how much he is learning & he's been sooo funny lately, always trying to be the funny guy. If he can get Noah or Owen laughing he will repeat whatever he's doing over & over. Last night we were reading one of Owen's 'read with me books' from school. It was about a bear sleeping and snoring. Grayson would pretend to sleep & start snoring trying to get the boys to laugh at him. It was so cute! He definitely is 'One of the boys' now - never wanting to be left out!
He's eating well & sleeping well (still co-sleeping) Gavin teases me about when we will finally try Grayson in his own room and thinks it will be when Grayson can actually ask to sleep in his own bed :) I will update this post with weight and height stats after Grayson's Dr's appointment next week.
updated with stats: weight- 22lbs (15th percentile), Height - 84 cm (75th percentile), Head Circumference 45.5 cm (10th percentile)
Love you Baby!
