A Peter Rabbit Themed First Birthday Party

Grayson is 9.5 months old and it’s already time to start thinking about his first birthday!  The first birthday is such a huge milestone and big celebration.  I feel like it was just yesterday I was planning Elin’s first birthday party and she will be turning five in May.

Since Grayson’s birthday is in the Spring and so close to Easter I though a Peter Rabbit theme would be perfect for him.  I’m already trying to think of cute bunny themed  decor and treats.  Luckily, since it it is close to Easter I am hoping to fine more Peter Rabbit themed items in stores in the next month or so.

I made an inspiration board to gather colors and ideas.  I can’t believe our little bunny is almost one!

Grayson’s 9 Month Update

THE STATS:

Weight: 21.6 lbs
Height: 38.75 in
Head Size: 18 in
Clothes:  6-12 months
Diapers: size 3

Grayson is 9 months old!  He celebrated his very first Christmas this month which was so very special.  It was so much fun to have him enjoy all the festivities for the first time.

Another big milestone this month was getting his first tooth!  He now has two little teeth and he is loving getting a chance to use them on all the new table foods he has been enjoying.  His new favorite foods are grilled chicken, bananas and bread. He has loved all his baby food and table food that he has tried and hasn’t turned down anything we offered him.

Grayson his trying desperately to crawl but hasn’t quite mastered it.  He gets on his knees and rocks back and forth but just won’t take that step forward.  He does know how to roll around and get whatever toy he is going after.

He may not look like he has much hair but it’s growing and getting thicker everyday.

Grayson continues to be such a good sleep and happy baby overall.  He always has such a sweet smile on his face.

 

Favorite Christmas Moments 2016

This Christmas was a special one becasue it was Grayson’s first Christmas! I just love this picture of him by his little tree I got him for his room.

I got Grayson the cutest little santa suit to wear and he was such a little ham with his hat on.

Elin got a Tsum Tsum advent calendar and it was so fun to see her excited everyone morning to see which one she got. She was thrilled with her surprise!

On Christmas morning Elin was eager to get downstairs to see what Santa had left. I had them sit under the tree for a quick picture and I love this picture of Elin stealing a kiss from Grayson.

Elin did such a good job at helping him check out his stocking and helping him open all his presents.

This picture was right before we set out visit family after we opened presents.

This last picture cracks me of Nanny and Papa with the grandkids because Elin’s smile looks rather aggressive and Grayson is getting his little head patted. His head is pretty irresistible! This was right before we left in the evening and it had been quite a long day.

 

 

Grayson’s 8 Month Update

 

THE STATS:

Weight: 19.8 lbs
Height: 28 in
Head Size: 17.5 in
Clothes:  6-12 months
Diapers: size 3

This little boy is already 8 months! In Grayson’s 8th month he has continued to love all of the baby food he has tried. He shovels in his own puffs and hasn’t been great at making it into his own mouth but he sure does try. He loves all flavors of puffs and and so far has eagerly enjoyed all the baby food he has tried. I think Banana is his favorite. I can tell his kid is going to be one good eater and not picky at all. He has also enjoyed grabbing and holding on to his bottle sometimes when having it. Other times he likes to just hold his hands over his eyes and enjoys someone else to do the bottle holding.

Grayson is still so happy and smiles all the time! I still can’t get over what and cuddly sweet boy he is. Such an easy baby.

He hasn’t crawled yet but he loves to get up in a push up position or on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. You can tell he is interested in crawling. He knows how to roll everywhere and anywhere, especially when chasing a toy.

We love our sweet Grayson so much.
