Grayson has been making some big changes in his life. He is growing bigger every day, his front top teeth are growing in, and he has just recently decided to change his wakeup time from 9:30 to 7:30. This is pretty rough for mommy because I like to A) sleep in because I am the worst night-sleeper in the world or B) get up before Grayson and get some work done. Along with this new adjustment, Grayson has also decided that he no longer needs two 2-3 hour naps, but only needs one 2 hour nap a day. I feel like a pinball machine, bouncing around my apartment, trying to squeeze every task into a two-hour period. By the time I get our whole apartment spotless, it’s time to start cleaning again. The only scrapbooking I have completed is of us at the hospital holding a newborn baby… We haven’t even taken him home yet! I was so determined to keep my book updated, and I’m now seven months behind! Sheesh!
In the last conference, one of the speakers said the joy of parenthood comes in small moments… This two hour period is NOT one of them. But, hearing Grayson learn how to babble his first consonant (Buh) and constantly squeal in delight over everything, see him learn how to cruise while holding on to furniture, take him outside to feel (and eat) the grass, these are the moments that make my two-hour game of pinball so worth it!
