Grayson at 4 Months Old!!

Grayson is such a sweet little man. I just melt every time he smiles & laughs at me! I cherish every chance I get to hold him on my chest because I know it won't be long before he's running around & no longer interested in laying with me. Grayson is very curious about everything! He shoves anything & everything into his mouth and he wants to touch anything in sight. He has lost most of his hair on the sides & back and it is getting lighter too. He is at the stage where I do not know what to expect on a day to day basis {inconsistent}, after talking to a few Mommy friends I decided it was time to start a new schedule {10.2}...feeding 4 times a day with cereal in all bottles, which cuts out the last feeding so he will go to bed earlier. It is going really well so far, he is more playful & much happier in the evening. Grayson is definitely a Mama's Boy right now :) I have a feeling Grayson is going to be wide open in a few months...I'm gonna have my hands full!!
