Updates on baby Gray


I keep forgetting to post updates on Grayson -- so here we go! I also posted about Thanksgiving today, so check out those pics, too. Well, Gray is 9 months old now -- wow how time flies when you're having fun with an adorable little tyke! He is 21 1/2 lbs, 30 inches -- big boy! He's so tall now -- lengthening out -- so he doesn't look as chubby anymore -- he looks more like a little boy now!! His eyes are absolutely gorgeous -- click on the picture above to make it bigger and see for yourself!!! He's such a happy little guy -- he smiles and laughs all the time! And he's so very busy all the time -- doesn't ever sit still very long. He crawls very fast now -- one second he's next to you, then turn around, and he's already across the room! Of course, this also means that he is getting into everything, too! He pulls himself up and 'cruises' around the furniture. He can stand up by himself without holding on to anything for a few seconds -- and he thinks he's so tough when he does -- he puffs out his chest and grunts - 'uuoff!!' Such a silly boy! He's also climbing up stairs -- also very fast -- and is currently working on how to get back down the stairs! His hair is still very very blonde, and is getting long now -- I had to trim the sides already! He's eating lots of solid food now, and even some finger foods already! He drinks pretty well from his sippy cup, too. He says 'mama' and 'dada' very clearly now, and babbles all the time. He even 'sings' sometimes -- when someone is singing, when he hears songs on the ipod, when we play the piano or guitar, or sometimes he just starts singing by himself. It's adorable! I don't think I've known any 9 month-olds that sing! He is just the sweetest little guy ever, and he is the light of my life. I just can't believe how much more I love him every single day!

You are such a good Mom! I just love Grayson and I have to see him every chance I can. I don't love that he is growing up so fast.

He is a handsome little guy! He out-weighs my 18 month old (she's a bit on the scrawny side).
Sounds like he is doing well and is very mobile now. He is going to be walking before you know it.

Such a cutie!!! Fun for him (not you) that he's mobile now!
