Captain Grant

Grant's room is finally coming together. I was really excited to do a pirate theme in his room, but was a bit stumped as to how to translate that into room decor. I'm still looking for some great pirate things, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

Here's Nate putting up Grant's name over his bed. We haven't bought a headboard for his bed yet.

Grant is very excited about the chalkboards. He "napped" today in his big boy bed and spent over half the time playing with the chalk and magnets.

The white bookcase will eventually go, but for now it can house his Lego pirate ship. I can't wait till he can play with it.

Ready to Swim

I got Grant a swimming vest for the pool so he could be free of his floaty boat. He really liked it, but still wanted his shirt on before we went in the pool. It was so funny watching him walk around like that. He looked like a little muscle man.

Learning the Traffic Signal Colors

Grant recently learned what the colors of the traffic signals mean. He watches the red light for me and lets me know when it turns green. Normally, he gets so excited that it turns green that he just gasps excitedly, unable to say "Go".

"A Little Bit Scary" (Jared Mori, age 2)

Grant's recently gone back to his old habit of peering out the corners/tops of his eyes at things that are a little scary. It's hard to appreciate the full effect in pictures, but
here's an attempt. It's pretty funny in person. Here he's not sure about something he's seeing on Nate's computer screen.

This was from last October...peeking at a suspicious butterfly on the wall of the Rainforest Cafe.

Cooking Together

I picked up a little play basket full of fruits and veggies for Grant. He's been having lots of fun with it. Today I asked him if he wanted to help me make broccoli for lunch and he was so excited!

He dumped out all of the options on the counter to find the broccoli.

Here it is! We pretended to chop it (his set came with a little knife and cutting board.)

Checking to make sure his looked like it was supposed to. Mine was all chopped so it wasn't quite the same...
Working hard

Now for the taste test. Mmmmmm...broccoli...
