Sorry its been so long...

Well we have been busy, busy, busy! Geoffery's grandparents came into town from Indiana and we spent A LOT of time up there at his parents house with them! We had a lot of fun and Grant was amazed at what his 6 mth older cousin, Tyler, could do. I think all Grant wants to do is crawl and move around as much as Tyler did. He would watch him in awe and amazement like it was the greatest thing ever.

Also we started Grant on "solids" or in other words rice cereal. We have been practicing eating rice cereal everyday and I think he is starting to get the hang of it. And good news to no one except for me- WE NO LONGER SWADDLE GRANT WHEN HE GOES TO SLEEP! This is a great accomplishment as it was like fighting with a bear to swaddle the kid and the blanket was usually tossed to the opposite side of the crib when we would get him in the morning. But I believed it would make him sleep longer, but we experimented and found it did not! Yeah!

Also our little baby boy is now "teething" which means I get to deal with a not so happy baby who will now wake up again in the middle of the night:( We were putting him down from about 7:30 pm and he didn't wake up until 7:30am the next morning. It was WONDERFUL! However that little honeymoon is over and we'll have to learn how to deal with this new stage called "teething." I'm sure we'll get through it just fine.

So below are some pictures we've taken over the last month or so. Hope you enjoy!

Well I think I can sympathize or empathize rather with you on the teeting business...Zaylie has been soooooo cranky lately, plus she woke up TWICE last night...she hasn't done that since she was 4 weeks old! But props to you for not swaddling Grant, I've been too nervous to try it, or really to lazy to try it, but you've given me hope. I love all of the pics, Grant is so dang cute!
