I can’t believe Grayson is already 7-months-old. Where does the time go? Every time I write my monthly post on Grayson, I feel like not much time goes by before the next. In my last update on Grayson here, he was having a bit of a hard time with RSV but he is doing better now! We are still having to do nebulizer treatments here and there but the good news is — no more antibiotics for those ears! Graysons surgery for his tubes was very successful and he has been off the antibiotics since last week. Now we just hope for a good hearing test and second follow-up at the ENT. Last week we had a slight scare and his doctor thought the tube had already come out of his ear, which meant we’d be going back for surgery. BUT, it was a false alarm and he took him off the medication for his ears. Go Gray!
He did lose some weight from being so sick so he is almost 16lbs now, a little guy! But he eats a ton and wants to be eating at the table every time we eat. I’m pretty sure he is tired of his formula and rice cereal mix in his bottles. He much rather would have apple juice. This month I plan on conquering making baby food for him because it will cost way less than how much baby food we are buying. Wish me luck! It will be a first for me, but I plan to share the journey with you.
Another big accomplishment this month is because of Grayson’s acid reflux he could only sleep in his swing. Good news! He can finally sleep in his crib. This is so exciting! He is no longer on Prevacid and doing so much better with the reflux since he can sit up now. He goes to sleep between 10:30-11 and sleeps until 8am or later. I know, I still can’t believe how good of a sleeper I have!
I just can’t believe how much time flies!

Grayson is always sitting up and tries to pull himself up and really just can't wait to move. The little boy hardly sits still. I am amazed I got this picture!

Don’t Worry Mom, I’ve Got Sophie 16 of 16
Right before Grayson went into surgery he put on his game face and was clinging to Sophie. It was like he knew he was somewhere different. I love this little man!
