6 Months (Dr. Appt!)

Quick update to give Greyson's stats from today's Dr. appt.. He is doing so well!

Age: 6 months 8 days
Weight: 17lbs 10.7oz
Head Circumference: 17"
Height: 27" Tall

So he is in the 60th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height! Doing well on food, no reactions so far (YAY!) and rolling over and sitting well and stands if you hold his hands, like forever! This kid LOVES to stand up! He can scoot around the floor but only does it if he reeeally wants something.. Still lazy with holding his bottle, but he will if I let it slide down like I'm not gonna hold it for him, hehe! He says "DA DA" too! He's actually been saying it for about a month but he was whispering it now he bellows it out whenever! He also had his 6 month photoshoot done with my friend Karmen and it was AMAZEBALLS! I cannot wait to get the pictures back!! I got a sneak peek email from her with a few pics and I'm super thrilled with them, if the rest are as good I will be dying from all the cuteness! We took a family picture too since we hadn't since about 2009 and the big boys are not gonna be home much longer, so we definitely needed one.. Here is a peak at what's to come from the shoot!
Smooshing his cheeks with kisses!

Payback, I am gonna eat Daddy's face!

Can't wait to get the finished photos, I am so thrilled with them so far!

6 Months And Happy Mother's Day

Can you believe Greyson is 6 MONTHS TODAY!!!! Where is the time going?!?! He is babbling and saying "Da Da" and cooing and DROOLING everywhere all the time! He is rolling over and punching and slapping us willy-nilly.. He's such a big boy now.. He is eating food and loving playing with his toys.. He is STILL teething, with not a pearly white in sight! I don't have his stats yet because he Dr's appt. isn't until May 20th, but I will do a post once he has it.

In addition to being his 6 month birthday, it is also Mother's Day.. This day is always bittersweet for me. I am SO grateful to have our precious boy, but I have SO MANY friends that have not made it to "the other side" yet and I am always sad for them today.. I also have friends who have lost their mother so it just makes me feel torn between happiness and sadness.. Today is going to be a laid back day for us, just hanging out and my older sons are cooking me dinner (no idea what it's a surprise!) and they got me a cool digital desk calendar digital picture frame with all my favorite pictures of my 4 guys, I LOVE this gift! I told Greyson it was Mother's Day and asked him if he was going to be a good boy today? He slapped me in the face and then smiled. I took that as a definite NO. And this is how he has been all morning

Happy Mother's Day Mommy, now GO AWAY!
 These teeth can come on and show themselves any time now!!

Enjoy your day with your Mom if you can (Mine is 17hrs away :-( ) or enjoy being celebrated if you are a Mom! If you are still on your journey, I am thinking of you today as well..

Til next time!

Finally Ready To Share!

I know, I know... I am SO sorry it took me so long to update! I have been crazy busy with my new venture that I never got around to telling you guys about! Things got busy around here with my son getting ready to graduate and on top of that we have my niece and two great-nephews coming to stay with us so it's been a mad house! LOTS of family coming in to town starting the right around Memorial Day and then staying until Kyle's graduation on June 1st. 

OK, so back to my big reveal! I have been working so hard the last few weeks trying to get things "ready" to share with you guys so I hope you love it as much as I do! Since having Greyson, my life pretty much revolves around all things baby and child and it will be that way for the foreseeable future. So what better way to have the best of both worlds than to focus my business in that area! I decided to open an online resale and consignment store, focusing on children's clothing (from preemie to 5T), accessories and small toys! 

I am doing everything myself (not my logo, hubs talented cousin designed those for me!), from getting the website exactly how I want it (so hard!!) doing my own ads and marketing (thanks go.ogle ad.words!) and my own seo (sea.rch eng.ine op.timization) so that is what has been keeping me away from blogging! Not to mention prepping all of the inventory (and I already have A TON OF INVENTORY!!) Most of my clientele so far are friends and friends of friends, but I am hoping that changes as I grow and get my name out there.. It's scary and exciting all at the same time.. I wanted to have it "just perfect" before sharing, but I realize that isn't gonna happen anytime soon, because right now I am a one (wo)man show so I have like 8 jobs right now and a baby to care for. LOL! Slowly but surely I am getting inventory added, but my goal is to have 100 things that are in stock and ready for sale by the end of May and I am only about 30 pieces in, eek! So without further ado I present Greyson's Place Kids Consignment!

Also my SIL Christy is an amazing craft maker and she has been making the COOLEST DUCT TAPE BOWS! I am featuring them in my store and she has already been selling them like hotcakes locally! So that's my big news, I hope it was "newsworthy" and you aren't reading this saying "oh, that's it? whatever..LOL!!" We also have a facebook page and of course twitter oh and pinterest I have to find time to keep all of these pages up too!!

Take a look and tell me what you think, y'all know I value your opinions! Also leave me a comment and tell me what brands you think are great and what accessories (small things think boppys and sling/carriers NOT car-seats or pack n plays!) we should feature. I am still accepting consignments and doing buyouts, so I am very interested in seeing what you guys offer up as advice to me.

Thank you for being so patient and I hope you love what I have done so far!

Oh and because I have been a bad blogger here are a few more pictures of the inspiration behind it all...

I can haz more peas?


I don't need no stinkin socks!

Pull my finger!

Was that you or me?!

That was totally me!

Hey ladies!

Enough with the pictures!

I love to stand up, tummy time? Not so much..

Until next time!
