Grady is SIX MONTHS!
It truly seems like yesterday that I was delivering our perfect 8 pound 12 ounce son Grady, and now he is half way through his first year! He continues to be the light of our lives and the most happy little guy around.
He weighs 16 pounds 11 ounces, 28 inches long now and is wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers. We still love nursing and show no signs of slowing, thank goodness. He doesn't seem to be teething at all yet, so we have that to look forward to!
He loves to jump in his jumperoo, swing at the park and be held and thrown around by his amazing daddy.
We started solids this month as well! Avocado was first up and well, it wasn't his fave. I tried it straight first and he hated it so I tried it with breast milk next and...he really hated it!
Next up, per his pediatrician's suggestion was the "yellows" (sweet potato, carrots and squash) and so far he loves sweet potatoes!
After the yellows we will do fruit then the greens, probably mixed with fruits and veggies he has already tried and enjoyed.
Being that this isn't our first (or second!) rodeo, we know that the next 6 months will bring teething, sitting up, crawling, cruising, talking and too much growing up. As excited as I am to see this little guy continue to grow and change, it is bittersweet to pack away some of his baby clothes and say goodbye to my last baby and hello to yet another toddler.
The first year of a baby's life is so wonderful and special and far too short.
OK, now I am going to snuggle my baby boy and sniff his little head and smooch his tiny toes because I know that too soon he will be running away from me and covered in dirt and yogurt.
