HeArT DaY!~

Valentine's Day was so fun this year with a new little love bug in our house! I was excited to carry on the tradition my parents did for me by leaving Grayson goodies where he would wake up and have breakfast a.k.a. his highchair:) I remember always waking up before school and running out to the kitchen table to see what we got! Then my Mom would always have us heart shaped sandwiches and Valentine napkins in our lunch! I can't wait to keep these traditions going with our kids!The Saturday before Valentine's Day, Chris & I had a little date night to Spindini. In the middle of our dinner we got a surprise phone call from our good friend Mr. Harrison who had 2 extra Memphis basketball tickets! We were so excited! Thank you Uncle Itchy for making our Valentines even more special:)On Valentine's Day we took it easy with our newest love and made homemade heart shaped pizzas! I got Chris some new accessories for his green egg for vday so it was only right to break them in!And Grayson had some too! Haha juuust barely touched his mouth;)We had a wonderful LOVE day:) I scored some James Taylor tickets for July and these beautimous flowers...Gray got his favorite Mickey Mouse toy and DVD...and Copper of course got a little something too!But most of all Chris & I shared a new love as mommy & daddy... a love for this little man that no words can explain!XO

Me & my buddies!

Grayson has had a few fun little visitors this past month! We had our good buddies, Cooper & Ben Barker & their momma's over for some dinner & a whole lot of mommy talk! :) I made some Pioneer Woman lasagne... it turned out pretty darn good! the 3 boys;) (Ben knew he had some catching up to do & I must say he did a verry good job!)
Cooper & Grayson are 8 days apart... it was too funny watching them together! They were doing the exact same things...
Hey wait, you about my age....
And Grayson decided to show out while company was over and roll over to his tummy!!!
BEST BUDDIES:)Grayson also got to meet his big boy buddy Braxton and my long time bff, Ashlee! It's so crazy to see OUR little ones together! My how times have changed... I love it!Braxton was such a good helper! Sweet boy!It was so great to get together with good friends & their boys:) I can't wait to watch them all grow up together and become best buddies!!

I've never posted a video before, but figured it was time to show you what this little boy is like in action! I love these little squeels he does (**Please excuse my horrible voice in these videos & the fact that I am challenged and cannot figure out how to flip them!)

Typical boy, all these toys and he just wants the remote!

And because it was cold and depressing today, we decided to have a summer fashion show! hehe!He's ready for less clothes & to splish & splash in the pool!!!

Worst Firsts!

Grayson has had 2 new "firsts" in the past week. However these are NOT the fun kind of firsts. Can you guess what they are?!?!
Yes, we had our first cold AND we are teething!!! Waaa, for Grayson.... Waaa, for Mommy!! On his 5 month birthday he started sneezing a lot more than normal and that night he was up alot... I knew something had struck! Of course being the typical first time looney mommy that I am I tried so hard to track down where he caught it from, haha! Then I finally told myself to get a life:) Somehow, somewhere Graybear caught a cold:( It really hasn't been bad... no cough or anything just extra boogies and a little snot. I literally held him the whole next day and would not let him play, just rest! hehe:) I think it helped or at least made him feel better! We are still working through it with the dreaded snot sucker, but we're pretty much over it! However, a little friend decided to visit us Tuesday night and we do not like him!!! His name is mr. toofie:) a.k.a A TOOTH. We were up ALL night Tuesday night and I could not figure out how to get him to sleep. We tried every location of the house and he wouldn't even sleep sound in my arms... that is so not normal. I thought maybe an ear infection, but he wasn't screaming like he was in much pain he just kept waking up crying a little, but mainly just jabbering. He was pretty much restless. We somehow made it to school a.k.a. work the next day and it reminded me of the first few weeks when he was a newborn. I was in zombie mode and cried a few times... I even left his passy at home?!? Somehow advil and his sweet little face got me through the day:) (Oh and Nonna who brought us dinner & was my assistant all night, hehe!) At work he was still fussy even after sleep and me holding him. The lady there mentioned he might be teething. I was in denial at first thinking no way, he's just a baby! Until I got home and researched and saw sure thing it's time for him to start cutting teeth. Really?!? Already?!? But he's just a baby:( When he woke up from his nap I inspected and sure enough found a little white speck popping up on his bottom left gum. It's very hard to see and not quite cutting the gum yet but it's sumfin and that sumfin is causing a not so happy baby boy! Daddy came to the rescue with some baby orajel and it seemed to help a little last night. He only woke up at 11 & 4... not too bad compared to the night before. At 4 I crammed some Tylenol in his mouth and he was conked out till 8:30 this morning, woohoo! I pray for more sleep tonight!:) but most of all I'm thankful for answered prayers of this sweet little healthy baby boy growing way too fast before our eyes!!! Heres to drooling, chewing & orajel!!
