Grant's 5 Month Update

Dear Grant-man,

I'm catching up on 3 months of updates but at least this one is almost on time!  And by almost I mean only 2 weeks late!

You such a delightful baby.  You rarely fuss or cry and you always have a smile for everyone.  I call you the jolly fox.  Your "little" cheeks are the cutest thing I've ever seen and your siblings are constantly squeezing them to evoke a grin from you.  You rarely disappoint.

You are a great sleeper, usually going to be around 8 and waking up around 6 to eat.  You still sleep in the Rock N Play beside our bed and I'll probably keep you there until you move.  Mama sure doesn't want to rush through any milestones with you sweet boy.  I am enjoying them all.

You are in size 3-6 month clothes and still in size 1 diapers.  I think I'll move you up soon.  You are built like a tiny little rugby player.  Short and stout.  It will be interesting to see if you grow taller or stay the same size.

You love to be swaddled.  As soon as I wrap you for a nap or at night you get a huge grin on your face!!  You aren't very consistent with naps because we are usually on the run but you can sleep most anywhere.

You almost always have your fist in your mouth.  Your skin is actually kind of chapped on your left hand because you are always chewing on it!  If we lay you on your belly you just stick your hand in your mouth and go to sleep.  You still aren't rolling over either way!

Grant you sure are a joy to have around.  Your sweet smile lights up the room and you make our family happier.  We love you so much!

Grant's 4 Month Update

Dear Grant,

I can't believe you are four months old already.  Time seems to be flying by!  We went for your checkup and you were 15 pounds and 8 ounces.  You were 24 inches tall.  You are short and stout!  In comparison Reed was 15lbs1oz and 26 inches at the same time!  You are still in size 1 diapers and you are wearing 3-6 month tops and 0-3 bottoms.  Your legs are so short that the 3-6 hang way below your feet!

You are starting be such a smiley little guy!  We love making you giggle and laugh.  Your cheeks just seem to go on for days!  You always give your siblings a smile.  You've also started giggling when I kiss your neck.  I love making you smile!

You've starting sitting up in the Bumbo occasionally but you are in no hurry to move around.  No rolling over either way and you do not like to be on your belly!

You are a great sleeper and I think I'll keep you in our room for a while.  As soon as I put you in bed you just peek out over your blanket and smile if you catch my eye.  You never cry in the middle of the night or if you want to eat.  You just talk until someone wakes up!

You are the sweetest little guy and we are so incredibly blessed to be your parents.  We love you Grant-man!

Love,, Mama & Daddy

Grant's 3 Month Update

Dear Grant,

3 months!  I can hardly believe it! This was the first full month that you were nursing.  Such a miracle!  I am so thankful because I enjoy that sweet time that I get to have with you!

You've started cooing at us and are especially talkative at night.  I love wrapping you up for bed and then having a little conversation with you.  Those smile and coos....I could listen to them forever. You are starting to want to sleep early.  You are usually ready for bed between 7 and 8.  Your Daddy has been gone this month and you get so excited when you hear his voice on the phone!  

You are starting to become a little chunk!  I think you are going to be shorter than your brothers.  You are wearing size 0-3 clothes and size 1 diapers.  

Your smile is my favorite.  It's so easy to make you smile.  You smile so big your eyes disappear.  I hope you always smile so big!

We love you so much Grant man.  Just grow a little slower!

Mama & Daddy
