14 months


Grayson is 14 months old today!

Don't mind the toy hammer.
Stats:
Weight: 20.5lbs
Height: 30in
Clothes: depending on brand, 12 month & 18 month clothes. He is SO skinny that he wears mostly longalls & overalls because his pants won't stay up!
Shoe: 4 1/2
Diaper: 4

Here are a few things G has been up to this month:
  • He finally realized that milk isn't too bad! Regular whole milk still isn't sitting well with his tummy so I got him vanilla soy milk this week. He's been drinking strawberry milk every night!
  • We are transitioning to 1 nap a day and it is t e r r i b l e. If Grayson takes a morning nap then he only sleeps for roughly 40 minutes in the afternoon. 40 minute nap = cranky baby. Trying to skip that morning nap is hard, but when he does, he sleeps great later in the day!
  • G is still a finicky eater...but he is slowly getting better! He still loves my morning coffee (strange), really likes roasted garlic hummus (stranger), and thoroughly enjoyed some pickled okra yesterday (strangest). He even liked Ben's bbq chicken sandwich yesterday at lunch! We are branching out, people!
  • Grayson has learned to drive his 4 wheeler. You heard that right. DRIVE. It is a mini Power Wheels and he figured it out this week. Smart kid, scary thought.
  • G got 2 more teeth this month! We have a grand total of 14! 
  • Separation anxiety is SO much better! G only cries for a few minutes when he is dropped off somewhere. Makes leaving a lot easier on mama!
  • G can now shake his head "no." Welcome to the world of opinions.

Here are some of G's current favorite activities:
  • dragging the basket of dog toys all over the house & then throwing the tennis balls to Jack.
  • Playing outside! He would play outside all day. every day. G loves throwing balls all over our yard, riding in his cars, & walking next door to see the dogs.
  • Lining up all of his toys on the TV stand in the bonus room. Rain Man!
  • CLIMBING! This new hobby will give me gray hairs. He can climb all the stairs in about 30 seconds flat and he thinks it's really fun to climb on the train table.
  • Feeding himself using a spoon! He loves eating his yogurt, oatmeal, and applesauce all by himself. It's a messy hobby, but the proud look on his face is worth it!

I can't believe it has been 2 months since Grayson turned 1! He is definitely a lot more independent & is communicating so much more. Our little boy is growing up so fast! I say it every time, but I love this stage. It just keeps getting better!

Happy 14 months, G!
