Grayson got this very cute outfit from Becca's cousin Keeley several months ago. It is really soft and very warm. So, I thought it would be appropriate to wear today when the highs were only in the 20's. When I picked Grayson up at daycare, his babysitter said (in her Asian accent) "His clothes very warm today. Too warm for such an active boy" It made me giggle.
I went to bed tonight without a picture for the day. But, Grayson didn't let me down. He woke up around midnight, an hour after I went to bed, and was really fussy. I went through my whole routine of calming techniques: feeding, teether, tylenol, and cartoons. When nothing worked, I resorted to real food. He gobbled up 3 bowls of sweet potatoes and cereal within about 10 minutes and went right back to bed. This only took me a little over an hour to figure out. So, notice the clock in the background. He's eating a large dinner at 1:05 in the morning!!
I know that since it was after 1 am, it is technically Thursday, but since I hadn't gotten much sleep yet, it was still Wednesday night in my mind.
It just happened that our friends, Kristi, Jeremy, and Eli, from Austria were in TN during our short visit home. We had not seen them since last March and really wanted to see them before our trip to their house in July. So, we met in the middle to play, chat, and open Christmas gifts. The best place we found to do all of this was in the children's section of Books a Million.Grayson was really interested in Eli's goldfish crackers. Looks like he is nearly ready for small foods like this. Such a big boy!
One of the biggest jobs of the weekend was going through all of Grandmother's jewelry. She had a ton. Adam and Nick model some of the rejected pieces that no one wanted.
We have discovered that Grayson loves dogs. Adam's dog Shadow, was not feeling quite so much love. Grayson had fun chasing her around the room and trying to pet her.
This afternoon, Adam's sweet and spunky grandmother passed away. We had a great relationship with her and feel very blessed she was able to meet Grayson.
I got to start using my mesh feeder at Christmas. Mommy puts pieces of pear in it for me to chew on and eat (without worrying about me choking). I can also feed myself with this!
