Grayson Patrick turned 9 months old on the 4th of July. This month was another rough one for my poor sweet baby boy with his first real sickness and cutting 3 teeth at one time for several weeks! However, it was also a fun one with his first trip to the beach, having his cousins come and visit us, traveling to Pensacola to be with more cousins and family, his first 4th of July, and a pretty big milestone happening- crawling!!!
My sweet lovie was wearing mostly 9 month and 6-12 month clothes. He was still wearing a size 3 diaper. He started doing much better with eating solids after being on his medicine until he got sick for the first time. We were on vacation in Destin with my in laws and the last night we were there he woke up sounding like a little seal and like he was having trouble breathing because he was coughing. Poor little buddy had croup. He was pretty miserable for several days and when we took him to the dr she said he was also cutting 3 teeth at once! His first tooth finally officially was in and was so cute but needed the others to balance it out. :)
He hasn't really said his first word yet and isn't really babbling all that much. I think because he was focusing on so many big motor skills he wasnt too focused on talking. He has said na-na (sounds like Nonna), ma, da, and his infamous ahhhh.
Likes:The beach/waves- he was so precious and loved it!
Being tossed in the air
Crawling to Lucy
The wheels on the bus song (his favorite line is where the mommies go shh shh sh)

The cow sound "mooooo"
Being sick with croup
My little love,
This month showed me more of your personality- sweet and happy, stubborn and dramatic, and a true boy-active! I love seeing more of who you will become because I am watching you grow into the person The Lord knit together inside of me. I am so thankful that you (if you don't feel good or are very sleepy) will still cuddle up on my chest. Every time you do I try to remember what it feels like because you won't be this little forever. There is a line in a song that I love that goes "Oh, darlin don't you ever grow up...just stay this little. Oh darlin don't you ever grow up...it could stay this simple." Part of me wants to keep you this little forever but I know you have a lot more growing and changing to do. And that's a good thing...mommy just needs to be okay with it. :) I love you so much it hurts. You are SUCH a precious treasure and my sweet baby boy.
Your mama and daddy
