Grayson updates!


Grayson had his 2 week doctor's visit -- and he is doing great! He now weighs 9# 14 oz!!! He's gained almost a pound and a 1/2 since he was born! Babies are supposed to be back to their birth weight by the 2 week check-up (they lose a lot after they're born) -- and Grayson has far surpassed his birth weight! Dr. Campbell said I was "a good cow" -- because I'm obviously doing well with the breastfeeding!! Steve got a kick out of that one, and has been telling me to moo now every time I feed the baby!!! Gray also is 21 inches long, so a 1/2 inch longer than at birth! And his caput (swelling on his head from where they had to use the vacuum) is going down -- the doctor said it may take a few months to go away completely! All in all, Grayson is healthy and thriving!



His cord stump finally fell all the way off, so I got to give him a real bath in the cool bathtub my mom got for him -- it uses constantly-flowing water, so it always stays warm -- and it has a built-in thermometer so I know the water is the right temp for him! He actually liked it -- and fussed when I stopped pouring water over his head! He's going to be a fish like his daddy!

He gets cuter every time I see him! I'm so glad he is doing well, and good for you for being a healthy cow :) Isn't it glamarous?

He is so cute! Maddux gained the same amount of weight at his two week appointment--it must be the boppy, (we have the same one). My doctor told me I must produce pure cream--I thought that was weird.

I'm so glad all is well and he looks just healthy and perfect. Go Mantha, natural mother.
