Learning Manners

Grant and I were in the car today, admiring the beautiful sky.

Me: Isnt' it a beautiful day! When you see something beautiful that God made you can say, Thank you, Lord!
Grant: Thank you, Lord. (...pause...) Did he say "you're welcome?"

We've been working on learning to say please, thank you, and you're welcome. I'm glad to see it's starting to stick.

"I a Construction Worker"

He's been wearing his "hardhat" around all morning and having a great time. Who needs a real hardhat when you have a bucket?

A True Convertigle

Grant found a way to make a top for his car. He thinks it's great fun to drive around with the top on the car then flip it off and say, "It's a convertigle!"

First Annual Falling Day

Well, we will probably just call it "Fall Day," but Grant refers to the season as "falling" so he thought the day was called "Falling Day." We got out our fall decorations and Grant couldn't have been more excited. The day started out with pumpkin pancakes (actually just cut out in the shape of pumpkins) and then moved on to jumping in the fall leaves. It was rather sad that jumping in fall leaves actually takes place in the middle of the living room, but do what you gotta do.

Favorite Quotes

Here are two of my recent favorite quotes from Grant...

I won't provide context for this one, just to keep it in better taste: "Ooooh, I 'sploded! Like a super nova!"

(At dinner the other night)
Me: Here, Grant, eat some of the chicken and the cheese. It's good for will make you strong!
Grant: It's protein?

Lite Brite

I got Grant a Lite Brite a while ago and he's just starting to have fun with it. You can see his progression from a straight line, to several lines, to a truck, then finally a garbage truck. It's been lots of fun lately to see his mind working.
