Growing Grady

So here is Grady's growth stats from his first couple of check-ups:

Reminder that he was 9 lbs. 3 oz. and 22 1/2 in. at birth.

Newborn check-up (4 days old):
Weight--9 lbs. (87th %)
Height--22 1/2 in. (100th %)
Head--14 3/8 in. (89th %)

Two week check-up:
Weight--10 lbs. 4 oz. (92nd %)
Height--23 in. (100th %)
Head--15 1/4 in. (100th %)

He's really too long for most of his 0-3 month sleepers, but since he's not completely stretching out yet, he can still wear them.  He can wear some 3-6 month clothes already and it's just crazy!

He's now a month old and still growing! I can tell he's gaining weight as my arm is feeling the burn some days!  If I lay him down, he looks so small...then I pick him up and he doesn't seem so small anymore.  He's so strong and has been holding his head up a good bit for the past couple weeks.  He is eating and sleeping very well (although--if he'd sleep longer at night, I wouldn't complain!).  He's not the least bit bothered by his noisy siblings.  They can run all around, screaming like banshees right next to him and doesn't even flinch!

Wyatt and Maggie are quite fond of him too!  If he's not in the room, they ask about him.My sister made a joke about taking him home with her and Wyatt was very upset.  My aunt was holding him while visiting at my mom's house and when it was time for us to leave, Wyatt told her that Grady needed to go home with us. They love their new brother and it just warms our hearts so much to see them as enamored with him as we are!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Grady's birth story!
