I love being this little guy's mommy! He's made our life so much more full in every way!

Dr. R, Grady's pediatrician, says he's doing great. We'll see him again when Grady is 2 months old for some immunizations.
As for me, Dr. C says I'm healing up just fine. I was cleared to start driving again...thank God! I was beginning to have some serious cabin fever. I've gotten out of the house a couple a times by myself and once with Grady. I felt like a real momma, leaving the house with the baby all by myself.
Anyway...we're doing just fine. Hoping to establish a good eating/playing/sleeping schedule in the next few weeks. That will just make our life so much simpler!
We are truly enjoying this little guy. As ready as I am for him to be sleeping through the night and be on a really good schedule throughout the day, I also realize that I will never get these days back. I'm trying to enjoy every little moment, one little moment at a time...even the ones that happen at 3:25 in the morning!

He's sleeping wonderfully, which means momma and daddy are getting pretty good sleep too. Daddy likes to say "we are getting really good sleep." Momma had to remind Daddy this morning that "we" is probably not the best pronoun to use at this point since Momma's the one getting up 3 times a night right now, and staying up to nurse.
In all seriousness, Jon is a wonderful daddy. He wakes up intermittently to make sure I don't need something while I'm awake (or semi-awake) nursing. He is taking care of all things housework and is just being generally helpful.
Ok...I know you just want to see pictures. So alas, here they are.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (vs. 4-9)
I can do everything through him who gives me strength. (v.13)
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (v.19)
Thank you, Lord or you peace in our life. Thank you for calming my anxious heart and setting my nerves at ease. Thank you for your promise of reason for rejoicing in the morning!

I've really enjoyed my time off and am in the this-is-my-last-whatever-without-being-a-momma mode. For instance this is my last Friday not being a momma. Jon and I are going out with old friends tonight for dinner and it's our last Friday night out without needing a babysitter or without bringing Grady along for the ride. Crazy times!
Anyway, Jon and I have really had a chance to enjoy each other this week, to find rest in the midst of our usual busyness, and just be able to spend good time with friends.
I'm so excited about meeting our little boy. Grady is going to be born next Friday and will enter this world much the way I figure he'll live in it...a little different from the rest of the world. He'll be entering butt first instead of head first and like his daddy will most assuredly live a life that turns this world upside-down. I'm looking so forward to seeing how his little hands and feet are put to work by the Lord. I can't wait to see the lives that will be changed because Grady Daniel Bailes dares to live an extraordinary life that glorifies Jesus Christ.
Love you guys. We'll send out an update next week...and hopefully some pics to go along with it.
