7 Weeks and growing, growing, growing!!!!

Grayson is now about 7 weeks old and he is growing like a weed! He has been going through a growth spurt the last couple days and has been eating almost 6 ounces every feeding!! I will be really anxious to see how much he weighs at his 2 month check up!!!

The pediatrician put him on Zantac about a week or so ago for his acid reflux. We had switched to a new formula that is specially made to help with spit up and reflux and that helped quite a bit, but not enough. So the meds have done wonders so far!!! He isn't fussy at all like he was and it seems to be helping so much!! We are so glad!

He is also sleeping great still! Goes to bed around 9:00 and doesn't wake up until about 4:00 AM! :) He then will go back to sleep and wake up in the morning.

Our little man is also starting to smile more!! He isn't yet always smiling at us, but as you can see in the picture i posted, he definitely can smile really big!!

Grayson is now 1 month old!! I can't believe it!! He is growing so fast and seems to be getting stronger every single day!! Things are still not on a perfect schedule but I know it takes time! But he is holding his head up more and more. The eating is not super consistant yet. He sometimes will eat only 3 ounces and other times up to 5 ounces. We switched him to a "gentle ease" formula which seems to help with his gas but he's still a little fussy. That's been the hardest part for me.....I get frustrated pretty easily right now when he gets fussy for no apparent reason. But, I am learning! :)

Anyways, things are going great and Grayson is chugging right along!
