8 Weeks and an Update

Grant is 8 weeks old now and is growing so fast -- right before my eyes. I swear sometimes I get him up from his nap and he's grown. He is full of rolls and even a double chin! He has had a time with acid reflux. I hate seeing the poor baby in pain.

He is still eating every 3 hrs and then we let him wake on his own at night. I am proud to say that earlier this week, he slept from about 11pm - 6:30 am two nights in a row! He sometimes fusses inbetween, but he went without eating. The first night, I kept waking up, looking at our video monitor making sure he was okay!

He goes for his 2 month vaccinations this week. I can't wait to see how much he weighs. I am guessing 13-14 pounds. He's heavy!

Sweet puppy outfit.

Loves his pacifier.

With Daddy, quite possibly his favorite person on Earth.

I love kissing on him. He probably won't like it forever though, so I steal a lot of kisses now. I'm so grateful to finally be his Mommy.

And finally, here he is with a Darth Vader onesie on that says "My Dad can beat up your Dad." Grant is very alert and bright-eyed these days. He makes tons of cooing noises and smiles all the time. So much fun!

I just came across your blog. My husband and I had been TTC for a year when I was diagnosed with a Unicornulate Uterus. At the time, my OB/GYN also discovered severe scar tissue blocking my one functioning fallopian tube. Two years later, we are now in the process of beginning IVF. Like you, we have also began the adoption process. I just wanted to say what an inspiration your blog has been to me. It's wonderful to know that someone has been in my shoes and now has such a wonderful little man to show for it. Congratulations again!
