We're having a...


We just found out that we're having a little girl in July and we are sooo excited! I think we're just trying to take it all in, as we have been in total boy mode for the last two years. Her name, right now, will be Madelyn Brooke and we'll call her Maddy. We had this name picked out when we were coming up with girl names when I had Grant. Everything at the doctors looks good except that she's measuring a week small. However they say this isn't a big deal, she's probably just going to be a small baby. Grant was huge, so this will be new for me for sure. He was 8lbs when he was born:) We are just soo excited!

Stay tuned to Valentines pictures and maybe even a belly shot!

Grants 23 mth update...

So today I decided it was time to take some pictures of Grant. I hadn't in a while and i just felt like time was passing me by. My baby is growing up! Weep, weep:( But he is learning sooo much and I just wanted to write down some of the things he is doing now. I know this may be boring for some, but this is our family journal.

Grant is all of the sudden talking like crazy. He can communicate pretty much whatever he wants even if it is just using one word or pointing. He is starting to understand things better and I can say things to him and he always understands what I say to him. He now thinks that when Geoffery and I have a conversation that he is definately part of it. Geoffery and I spend a lot of time spelling things out. I tell ya, their smarter than you think:)

Grant also is obessed with several things and we spend our days talking and playing with the following: Monkeys (or he calls them ohh,ahh monkey noises), trains (or choo, choos), cars, Football (but its really basketball), tractors, and snowmen. We talk about these things at least 10 times a day each especially if they're on TV.

Also he is really into TV these days. Before it was just background noise and he didn't pay that much attention. But now it has become where he becomes commatose starring at it. So needless to say we try to turn it off throughout the day so that we get some playtime. His favorite show is Calliou, I have no idea why. I think he likes the idea of being Calliou's age.

He still is sleeping in his crib through the night:) He takes a 2 to 2 and 1/2 hour nap during the day. He loves to eat oatmeal, eggs, turkey, cheese, grapes, peas, green beans, chocalate milk, chicken, bananas and LOVES yogert. He is soo much fun at this age and with that comes a LOT of independence, but I wouldn't change him for the world. We have a lot of fun during the day together and he follows me around like a little dog. He LOVES to cuddle with me and watch a show on TV and we do that almost everyday. He is such a little sweetheart and has a really sweet side to him. I love you Grant!
