A Day in the Life of My 5-Month-Old (Photos)Casi Densmore-Koon
Meet Grayson. The little 5-month-old baby I am always talking about on here. Grayson arrived to us after a very long high-risk pregnancy that I am sure most of you followed. Of course, I probably should have carried my Nikon around with me for the day to capture his entire routine but for now – I am sharing with you his daily routine and his life as a baby over the last few weeks.
He loves eating baby food, being snuggled and laughing. He sleeps like a king and hardly ever cries unless something is seriously wrong. He is 15 pounds of pure joy! From kisses from sisters to bath time bliss and learning to sit up — here is a peek inside Grayson’s world.
I am thankful I have my iPhone and my sister/nanny/assistant to help capture just how he spends most of his days.
A Day in the Life of Grayson 1 of 17Take a look at what really goes on during the day when you're a baby.
8 AM: Full of Smiles 2 of 17This boy is just so happy! I would say 95% of his day is spent smiling, coo-ing or laughing at his silly sisters. He is just so content.
8:45 AM: First Time Foods 3 of 17A few weeks ago Grayson started stage one baby food and he loves it. Did I mention loves it? He has less interest in his bottles and more interest in what's on my plate.
9AM – Noon: Playtime! 4 of 17Grayson is the first child of mine who actually loves his bumbo chair -- so much. I think he has a lot to entertain him and look at with a little face always googling over him.
We Sit on the Couch 5 of 17And hang out. Of course -- I blog things like this.

Noon: Naptime 6 of 17Grayson loves hanging out in his crib! As if you can't tell -- doesn't look like much sleeping is going on here.
Bathtime Varies 7 of 17Today it was earlier custody of an explosive diaper but usually it is in the evening, after dinner. Don't worry -- I am holding this bumbo chair in the bath. It is easy for me to have control over his squirmy little self.
2PM: Auntie Time 8 of 17My sister comes over to help me a few times a week because otherwise, I couldn't work. I just recently admitted and accepted that I needed help - after all, I do have 5 kids and run a biz. So -- it is nice to have the help and Grayson loves his time with Aunt Katie!
Silly Boy 9 of 17Grayson loves looking at himself in the mirror. Such a ham already!
Strollin’ 10 of 17Grayson loves his stroller so much. He loves to be outside and take a walk.

Off to the Doctors 11 of 17Unfortunately due to Grayson's preemie status, he visits the doctors often. He loves it though!
Afternoon Dress-Up 12 of 17At some point during the day, there will be a instagram photo of me playing dress-up with him.
3 PM: Play, Play, Play 13 of 17Grayson has a few of his favorite toys and of course -- his favorite blanket from Little Giraffe. He loves kicking away and is slightly obsessed with watching Yo Gabba Gabba. So for those who think babies don't know what they want -- this one does!!
2nd Bath? 14 of 17Yep. Like I said, sometimes this happens due to the messiness of a baby.
7PM: Hanging out with Mom 15 of 17While I checked emails, Grayson decided to take a little browse on Etsy. Boy after my own heart.
10PM: Bedtime 16 of 17He loves laying in his crib and looking at his little stuffed animals and toys his sister lines up for him. Grayson takes his last bottle between 10:00-10:30pm and sleeps until about 8.
From Above 17 of 17I always remind myself, no matter how busy I am to just take in all these moments during the day.
