11 weeks old

This week Grae is making lots of noises!  He coos, laughs, smiles, and blows bubbles.  He loves watching our mouths move and tries imitating everything he sees.  He even wrinkles up his nose when he laughs! 🙂

He is beginning to enjoy spending time on his activity mat, cooing at the baby in the mirror. He also is batting at his toys.

He is doing much better sleeping now.  He either sleeps through the night, or wakes up once between 3:30 and 4:00 am to eat, then usually falls back asleep.  He wakes up again around 7:00 am for another diaper change and some more “num-nums”.  Sometimes he even sleeps in until 9 or 10!

He is about to outgrow his 3-6 month clothes (OH MY GOODNESS, HE IS HUGE), and is now wearing size 3 diapers!  It was highly disturbing buying them, because as I was putting the giant Sam’s Club box of size 3 in my cart, a CHILD was putting his OWN giant box of size 4 diapers in his mom’s shopping cart.  Woah.. I couldn’t believe that he was wearing only ONE SIZE BIGGER THAN MY TWO MONTH OLD INFANT.  EEeks.

Grae’s biggest milestone this week is getting to meet all of his aunts, uncles, cousins and his Great Grandma Odie for the first time!! We can’t hardly wait to introduce him to Daddy’s side of the family. 🙂
