crabby pants

Don't let the post title confuse you; Grayden has not his a rough patch. In fact, he is one of the easiest going babies I have ever seen. He is starting to figure out napping and how to fall asleep on his own. He sleeps long stretches at night, and he loves the sling, swing, and stroller. 

But since it has finally gotten warm here in Boston, I can finally pull out his summer onesies. My dear friends Arianne and Aubree got Grayden this adorable outfit.

Okay, maybe he was just a little bit crabby at the end.

I decided it was high time to try on the fabric shoes that I made for Grayden (especially since his 0-3 month pairs would probably not fit pretty soon....he has very long feet). The result was pretty stinking adorable.

This is what I get to wake up to every morning! Grayden loves to wiggle between feedings in the morning. He recently has figured out how to nap during the day, even though the naps are usually 30 minutes long. But it is wonderful to be able to nurse him and then put him down.

 Oh Mom, that sun is too bright!

fists of fury

Grayden loves to waive his arms and move his fists around all day (see: the bumbo). He occasionally has the good luck to get a fist into his mouth to suck on. In the mornings when I take him out of the swaddle to nurse, he often sucks on his fist furiously while I grab my water bottle and get settled on the couch. Today he found his fist during tummy time. 

 Utter bliss at finding the fist.

These are my favorite jammies. The pirate theme is adorable for little boys.

morning smiles

If you slept for 9 hours straight and then ate twice in a row, you would be this happy too!

the mobile: a series

Thank you Aunt Diedra for the ladybug mobile! This is currently Grayden's favorite thing to play with. He will lay in his crib and just stare at it, wiggling and gurgling to show his excitement.
