Grayson = 2 Weeks Old

What an amazing week we had with our little monkey!! I am feeling much better & I am starting to get the hang of being a Mommy :) My mom stayed *2* nights with us so we could get some much needed sleep. Thanks Mom, you're the best!! We loved the delicious home cooked meals also.

I left Grayson for the very first time so I could get out of the house & run a few errands. My mom watched him so I knew he was in great hands :) MiMi loved it!
Then we got ready for Grayson's Newborn pictures {see previous posts}.

Grayson loves his swing! {10 days old}
We had our very first family outing {I forgot to take a picture}. We went to dinner and ran a few errands. It was nice to get out of the house for a little bit :)

Our sweet "little man!"
Everyone says "all of his gorgeous hair makes him look so much older!"
He yawns so big...it's just adorable!

My sweet Grayson is 2 weeks old & he is such a good little baby! He is growing way too fast! He has big hands and feet & long arms and legs, we are hoping he will be tall like his Daddy! He started cooing today & it just melts my heart.
 Words cannot describe how much love we have for this little monkey!
-He nurses about every 3-4 hours {6-8 feedings per day} and supplements with 30-45cc's of formula
-He is a wonderful sleeper. And has slept in his crib since the second night home
-Yesterday I moved him up to size 1 diapers {they are a little big but he wet 4 onesies in 1 day, so it was time}
-He is cooing...and it melts my heart! 
-He smiles in his sleep
-He does great in the car seat 
-He likes riding in the car
-He loves to stroll outside
-He loves his swing
-He likes to sit in the boppy & just look around
-He LOVES to be swaddled, and he wiggles his little hands to the top so he can have them by his face
-He loves to be held
-He likes to sleep with his arms up by his head
-He likes to wrap his little fingers around my finger...heart-melting!
How is Mommy doing? 
Well, I am finally sleeping in my own bed again! YAY!
For these past 2 weeks I have been sleeping in the glider in Grayson's room. I would try to sleep in our bed but as soon as I would lay down I quickly started to feel anxious, shaky & overwhelmed. At night I was so exhausted, but because of the anxiety, I couldn't relax enough to go to sleep. I found relief in just sleeping in his room! After the first week, the anxiety started to get a little bit better each night & I was finally able to transition back to my bed :)
