Flirting with his Great-Grandmother
Adam's little chauffeur. I think the thought of the ride sent panic through Daddy and he had to shut his eyes to cope.

Flirting with a new friend, Micaela

December 29, 2009

I'm big enough to sit in a real high chair at a restaurant now

December 28, 2009

Grayson always wants to be in the middle of the action. After a game of Mexican train, we let him shuffle the dominoes.

December 27, 2009

We came to the mountains for a few days of relaxation after a busy Christmas. Since things are quieter tonight, Grayson finally got a much needed bath in a gigantic hot tub.

December 26, 2009

The first new TN item for Christmas; a sippy cup. I'm sure we will get lots of use out of this.


December 25, 2009

Merry Christmas!!
Mimi got Grayson a very cute backpack
Who cares about presents when there are shoes to play with?

December 24, 2009

When Grayson scooted over to the tree and picked up a present we got the clue that he was ready to begin

December 23, 2009

Grayson loves his jumper we borrowed from a friend for this trip. We visited Mimi at UT today, hence the completely orange outfit.

December 22, 2009

Grayson made his TV debut today. The NBC station invites the children of their employees to come listen to The Night Before Christmas every year. This year Papa was able to invite Grayson. He did a great job of listening and sitting still.

The aired story

Wouldn't we make great news anchors?


December 21, 2009

Our first trip to the ER- in the middle of the night, of course!
Grayson began wheezing so bad and is still coughing, so after 3 recommendations from ask-a-nurse lines, we headed out at 2 am for the hospital. After a deep nose suctioning and an ear infection diagnosis, we went home with 3 new prescriptions and a large bill (I'm sure).

December 20, 2009

Grayson met a new friend, Isaiah, at a Christmas party. They hit it off and within minutes were trying to eat each other and pull each others clothes off.


December 19, 2009

Gayson's new portable DVD player came in handy during the 12 hour drive

We're home for another tender TN Christmas

December 18, 2009

Opening his first present from Mommy and Daddy before heading to TN

December 17, 2009

Almost packed to go home for Christmas

December 16, 2009

Grayson went to bed at 8, then woke up at 9 because his teeth were hurting. So, we gave him tylenol, which makes him super hyper. He played until after 11 before crashing for the night.


December 15, 2009

Today's post is somewhat of a continuation from yesterday. We had Grayson's 6 month/Christmas pictures taken last night, but didn't get to view them until today. After spending 2 hours at the studio yesterday, we had to go back for another 2 hours to view, decide, and wait for them to be printed. After seeing the pictures you will see, it was worht the wait. We have the cutest baby I've ever seen. The link below will allow you to see the best shots we ended up with.

I am so big now in my new high chair and can hold and drink from my bottle all by myself


December 13, 2009

Today we had a cookie exchange with friends

December 12, 2009

Adam's FAVORITE restaurant (besides Jose Peppers) from his college years, is now in KC. If you have never been to a Cheddars, you need to go. Great food and even better prices. We drove by today to see when they will be opening.


December 11, 2009

Adam and I attended a surprise birthday party for Brook, a foreign exchange student from Taiwan, who is staying with some friends. She has discovered her favorite dessert is brownies.

December 10, 2009

I'm 6 Months Old Today!!!
I also got to meet Santa for the first time. I wasn't scared at all.

It was difficult to get a good picture in the chair, but we are having professional pics done next week. I will post some good ones.

December 9, 2009

Snow Day for Mommy!! Adam's school district never closes for this small amount of snow, so he still had to go to work.


December 8, 2009

Grayson's first real food- sweet potatoes


December 7, 2009

My first attempt at making baby food- sweet potatoes

My little laundry helper rolled over to me and started playing with the already folded clothes.

December 6, 2009

Adam was so excited about his new trick, he wanted it featured as the picture of the day.

December 5, 2009

Our Christmas gift to each other was a weekend away with friends in the big town of Hutchinson, KS. We went all the way to the middle of nowhere to see Brian Regan, a very funny comedian.


December 4, 2009

We thought we would leave the fountain on all winter, but this is what happens when it gets down to 16 degrees. Needless to say, it got turned off.

December 3, 2009

We took Grayson to an infant massage class tonight. It definitely took 2 of us to try to hold him down. The instructors said that the babies usually like massage and calm down while being massaged. But, not this kiddo. The oil we used must have given him a second wind and he became really interested in the other kids. He was rolling all over the place and fighting us to stay still.

December 2, 2009

My newest decoration for the season. I bought this garland a few years ago, but just hung it up this year.

December 1, 2009

It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTmas at the Foster house!


November 30, 2009

I think he really likes his penguin from Aunt Kasey

November 29, 2009

We went to Cheesecake Factory today for lunch and as soon as we sat down, the waitress came to serve Grayson a plate of bread and banana slices. It was very nice. Too bad he has no teeth and has not eaten any real food yet. Oh well. We ate it for him.

Just playing in the play area at the Nashville airport while waiting to catch our flight home

November 28, 2009

Grayson always gets lots of attention when Mimi, Aunt Nan, and Aunt Kasey are around.
I got to see one of my best friends from high school and one of my bridesmaids, Matia, when we got back to Nashville

November 27, 2009

Our family has a Black Friday night fondue tradition

Grayson is ready for his first flight. We are flying to Nashville then heading to Atlanta for Thanksgiving.

Adam doing all he can to get through a tough breathing treatment. They are much easier to give when Grayson is asleep

Our new favorite thing to play on

We attended a marriage conference today led by Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages. Grayson went to his first family Thanksgiving (with another family)
