Grant needed another hair cut. I think we decided this was his 4th since we got him.
"Can you even out my sideburns?"

He's getting a lot less squirmy, so it's getting easier to get an even cut.

Some Time with Grandma

My mom is in town for a visit. We had a short visit, but it was a lot of fun.
Grandma with all the grandkids.

Grant still is pretty stoic around his cousins, but Kegan was able to get him to laugh.

Jill's kids put on a little circus for us. Here's Kegan doing her trick--but this time with a twist. No hands, eyes shut, and only one foot. Wow! We were told that the proper response was "Bravo!"

Here Jared is being a Bionicle.

I Could've Sworn There Were Two Just a Minute Ago...

I had given Grant some peach puffs and was working on something else. When I turned around to check on him, I noticed that one didn't quite make it into his mouth. He just kept going, as if there wasn't a giant peach puff stuck smack in the middle of his forehead.

The Four Stages of Self-Feeding

Up until now, Grant would not put food in his own mouth. Anything else is fair game, but food? No thanks. Only if Mom feeds it to me. Today we finally had a breakthrough. It came in 4 simple steps:
Boy vs. Cheerio

What?? We Have Stairs??

Grant LOVES Emma. One of his favorite things to do is chase her around the house. She's a really good sport about the whole thing and lets him get really close before she dashes out of arm's reach for safety. Today she led Grant down the hall and over to the stairs. He was pretty excited to find the steps.

Lazy Days of Summer

Today Elizabeth came over with Carter and Katy to go swimming.

Grant has decided that he finally likes the pool. He floats around in his little boat and loves to splash himself in the face.

Carter took swimming lessons this summer and has become a really good swimmer.

The New Mailman in Town

He wasn't so sure about his new toy at first, but finally got the hang of it.

Kegan's Birthday Party

Kegan turned 4 on Saturday so she had a Barbie birthday party. All the girls got to make jeweled neclaces and bracelets.

Grant finaly got to meet his Uncle Ed.

Everyone got a turn with the Barbie pinata. It was one of those new pinatas where you pull the ribbon at the bottom instead of taking a whack at it. Apparently it's more girly to pull a ribbon.

One of the games entailed the girls getting blindfolded and trying to get the lipstick on Barbie's lips...a new version of pin the tail on the donkey.

Kegan got to put the candles on her cake...

...she was very creative in her choice of placement.

Kegan got lots of new clothes for her Barbies.

Timmy wanted a front row seat to check out Kegan's new toys.

Timmy kept asking to hold Grant, but Grant wasn't going for it. This is the closest we could get.

Me and the boys...

A Day at Home

With my car in the shop, we get to spend the day at home.

Since Grant figured out how to pull up, he's constantly finding new things to do. His exersaucer, aka "the devil seat," suddenly has a new alure.

He still loves his Baby Einstein DVDs. Today he was fascinated by Baby Galileo.
