Grayson Payne at three days old

Vitali is home alone today with his new baby brother. The other kids are at co-op but Vitali has some nasty, leaking ear infections so he gets some quiet time with us. We laugh all the time at Vitali, whose main goal in life is to be big. Or, at least bigger than someone. Vitali is so proud of his baby brother because Grayson is little, and most importantly, Grayson is littler than Vitali.

Here, Vitali and Grayson are having a little back and forth. Vitali asked me if Grayson was wondering if Vitali's hair was bigger than his. I was sure Grayson noticed. He looks impressed, don't you think?
We're loving this sweet baby boy. We love how chubby he is and how soft his hair is. We love watching him open his eyes and look around. We love feeling him nestle against us all snuggly-like.

But, you know what I don't love? That he is already three days old! Seems like moments ago. I am so aware this time of the quickness of the passage of time. I am trying to soak up every sweet moment I can with him!

I just thought this picture was funny. It's not the best one in the world but I like the comical ones. Makes me wonder what his personality will be!?!
