Fun Day

Jill and the kids came over today. All the kids wanted a picture with Grant. He constantly has his fingers in his mouth. I can't wait for these molars to come in!

Tim-Tims and Grant

Jer-Jer and Grant

Kegan and Grant

Here's the whole crew on the way to get donuts. Auntie Jill is so much fun! She even remembered to bring a special truck book for Grant to look at in the car.

Grant got his first taste of donut. He sat in his own chair like all the big kids and thoroughly enjoyed this new discovery. He kept saying, "More...more."

What a fun day! Thanks for coming to visit!

Sand Wagon

I got Grant a little wagon filled with sandbox toys today for $5.00. He's spent the whole day playing with it. As soon as Dad got home, it became a fun ride.

...the landing was a little rough.

I Swear, We're Innocent!

The beanbag works much better now that we got rid of about half of the filling.

Bean Bag Chair, Part 2

The cover for Grant's bean bag chair finally arrived. I stuffed it while he was taking his afternoon nap.

Grant thought it was fun to hide behind. It really is rather large.

Even with a cold and with trying to cut new molars, he thought it was great fun.

...trying it on for size. It's stuffed so full, it's hard to actually sit on. We'll have to see if we can fix that.

Here's a video of Grant checking out the new "chair." In true boy fashion, he has to push it over. These new molars have him biting just about everything...poor little guy. I like how be blows on the tail before he bites it, just in case it's too hot.

I Spy

Having fun with a remnant of wrapping paper...leaving me wondering, yet again, why we ever buy toys.

Which Is More Fun: The Bean Bag or the Box?

We got Grant a giant bean bag thingie today. We were going to get him a little chair, but decided the bean bag was a better idea. The cover hasn't arrived yet, but he didn't seem to miss it. It should look a lot smaller once it's stuffed into the cover...I hope.

This feels so good!

It came in a really cool, big box.

Grant got to use his special flashlight in his new hideout.

Peeking out of the box...

I Love My Dad!

Grant can't wait each day for Nate to get home from work. As soon as he walks in the door, Grant begs to be held or grabs Nate's leg, not letting go. Here he is, literally attached to Nate and being lifted off the ground.

When Nate goes out to the porch to use the grill, Grant runs over to the window and bangs on it yelling, "Dada, Dada!" Yesterday, Nate was working from home on the porch and I had to take Grant out because he wouldn't stop knocking on the window, trying to get his dad's attention. It's very sweet and fun to watch.

Movie Night

Grant has discovered popcorn, or "pa-co" and he calls it. Friday night we made popcorn and watched Kung Fu Panda. Very funny movie...

Me and my little buddy

Nate let Grant have a cookie...this is him saying "Mmmmmm."
