This is how we found Grant after a nap. Even covered in spit up he still keeps a smile on his face.

They Grow Up Too Fast

Today as we were leaving the Jackie's, the babysitter's house, I was complimenting Josie on how proud I was of her for getting into her carseat by herself and buckling one of the buckles. It seems minor but when there are two to put into carseats and it is freezing out any saved minute is appreciated. She gives me one of those "I'm thinking up something smart to say" looks and I can just see her wheels turning. Just then she says, "I guess that means I am big enough to drive now."

Weeks 25-28

Grant is now a mover. I wouldn't consider it a crawl quite yet, but more of an army scoot. Regardless, it gets him to where he wants to be. Another accomplishment in the past two weeks has been HUGE for mom and dad...sleeping through the night. Thank you, Grant, for making your mom and dad so happy.

Christmas 2009

It finally feels like Christmas. Our tree has been cut down, put up, and is fully decorated. It never really feels like Christmas until the tree is up. I think a little snow always helps too. Being a teacher, I am very much awaiting our first snow day. Luckily we picked a nice day to cut the tree down; cold, but the sun was a big help. Grant stayed back at Kringles Christmas shop with Nana while Dad, Mom, and Josie went to search for that perfect tree. We found it easily and it is probably one of the best we've had in all of our four years of cutting down a tree.
