Little Samurai

Nate made a Samurai head sash out of his socks. Grant thought it was the best thing ever. He won't wear hats, but a couple of socks tied around his head? Sure, why not.

"Coloring"


Grant got some new crayons today. He started out on the paper, but the tray was more fun.

This was the finished product.

Grant's had a weird appetite today. First, about a pound of sand at the park then the ends of two crayons. Notice the guilty look.

Random Pics

Dad's hat and a kitchen towel...it's a long story.


Mom's sunglasses

The Picture of Relaxation



I peeked in on Grant's nap the other day and this is what I saw...

Order


This is the kind of thing I frequently find when I've turned away for a minute or two. Grant is very orderly and is constantly finding new ways for his things to be organized. I watched him after I saw this and he couldn't find another tall blue container for stacking so he used something shorter (but still the same shape and material) to stack his 3rd cup.

Who Is That Kid?


Is it just me, or does he look much older in this picture?

Balloon


Grant gets pretty excited about balloons. Can you tell?

(No, he doesn't normally run around in a diaper and shoes...he had been eating spaghetti and this was the easiest clean-up option.)

Tupperware is for Girls

video
This was taken a couple of months ago. Grant was going through a phase where he'd put food in his ears. Thank goodness that has passed. Here he's eating his waffle and storing part of it in his ear for later. At the end he pulls out a little piece and offers it to me. Needless to say, I passed on his offer.

Visit to Chicago

I'm REALLY behind in my blogging. These are some of the pictures from my trip with Grant to Chicago in late April.

Grant had such a good time with Grandma...she's so much fun!


This is the life. Kicking back, eating breakfast with your feet up.


Grant finally started to walk about a week or so before the trip. He was still using his surroundings for extra support at times.

He decided that all of Grandma's and Papa's drawer pulls should be in the "up" position. He went around the kitchen and the office and flipped them all up.

Grant got LOTS of attention.


Grandma liked to zrbrt his belly. By the end of the trip, Grant would do a raspberry whenever he saw her.


Looking out the window on the plane.




Zonked


The weather was really crumby at the start of the trip, but up to the 70's by the end.

Grandma had some snake finger puppets, er, chew toys.

Grant decided that Papa was his best pal. He lit up whenever Papa was in the room and wanted to play with him, sit on his lap, be held by him, whatever as long as it was with Papa.


Since Grant was so excited about the ceiling fan, Grandma found a little rideable plane at Toys R Us that had a spinning propeller on the front. He loved it when she would push him around on it.

Playing with Play Dough



Here's Grant playing the piano. He was the first kid we'd seen that didn't want to bang on the keys. He only would press one key at a time, very carefully.

Having a good time with Papa in the shop next to Millie's. Mmmmmm, Millie's.
