Well what can i say, the last week of the year was defiantly a busy one!! First of all we had Graysons first Christmas….That was chaos!! He was one spoiled little man but i was so excited to spend my favourite holiday of the year with my own little family and make new memories and traditions!!
Grayson got totally spoiled off both sides of the family! His favourite present i think was his Finding Nemo matt he got from his Grandma, hes fascinated by lights and colours so because this is so colourful he is in his element when he is on it! Its amazing to see him get so excited, kick his legs, play with the toys and hes becoming more and more vocal!!
After Christmas we ended up spending a few days in the house, poor Grayson was unwell, hes been chocked with the cold. We think he got it before Christmas but he got worse Christmas day and was really blocked up, what do you expect at this time of year i guess, and with his being a new baby every man and their dog want ‘a shot’ of him so he was bound to catch something sooner or later!! Its been horrible seeing him so unwell and not being able to breathe right…but get used to it mate you live in Scotland its always cold here so your gonna get the cold ALOT!!
One good thing thats happened over this festive period though is Grayson has started sleeping right through the night! Woohoo!! Hes putting himself to sleep at around 7/8pm after his bottle then at around 1:30/11pm we are giving him a dream feed and a nappy change and hes sleeping all the way through the night till around 6/7am!! So both mummy and daddy are feeling very refreshed every morning after a great night sleep. And p;us when you bring him in beside you in the morning and he gives you smiles like this….you know its all going well and you are doing a good job!!
Not bad for 8 weeks old!!
Grayson also had his first new year! We spent Hogmanay in bed the 3 of us as a family, me and John stayed up for the bells and Grayson was just finishing off his dream feed! I wont lie….yes i cried when the bagpipes started and the countdown ended! How could i not get emotional when i was holding the greatest gift anyone has ever given me in my arms as the new year came in!
The following day we spend with my family in the pub! Grayson got spoiled yet again with love kisses and money!! Hes literally more money than us both put together!!
In typical scottish new years day fashion he had to be in tartan….sporting a pair of Timberlands!!
After a crazy week and a bit i must admit its been nice to relax a bit…so much has been going on over the past week im exhausted…god only knows how Grayson feels! So to kick off the year we went on a nice family walk round Lanark Loch to get out the house relax a bit and just spend some time together as a family. It was bloody freezing mind you..but we were all wrapped up and it was nice to blow away the cobwebs!
Thats been our crazy mad few weeks….i just wanted to update you all…
We hope 2019 brings you everything you could wish for and more!
Lots of love Grayson & Mummy x
