First Day of School!

Well, well, well Grayson had his first day of Mother's Day Out on Tuesday and don't let this picture deceive you...
 Haha! He looks so excited, but let's just say he did not dig it so much! :( We are okay with it though, because it's my first time leaving him besides church so I guess I expected this. I just hoped he wasn't going to be sad:( It broke my heart, but I know he will get used to it and have fun!

Maybe next week he will smile this big ALL DAY LONG?!? Pray for us:)
This sure is a hard part of mommyhood. I know it's best for him and in the end it will be fun, but getting over that hump is not easy...

Sweet little angel's end of the day card. Reading it sinks my heart... he loved the music room at least! They said he was so sweet and understood everything which helped his sadness, but couldn't stay happy! He did not want to do his craft and kept saying "all done"... the only thing that gave me a little laugh;)
I couldn't quit hugging my baby when we got home. We ate a whole lot of food (hence the report above), had popsicles, ice cream & Chris's cousin gave us a hand-me-down so we got to surprise Grayson with a FOUR WHEELER!!
"4 Wheeleeleleler!!"
Just a little excited!

Daddy teaching him all about it!
This is awesome!
My new ride;)
Daddy did most of the work! ha!
It was an eventful day to say the least! Praying for strength for myself and happiness for my baby! ;)

Father's Day

We had a wonderful Father's Day celebrating some amazing men!

It started off with a Father/Son after church nap! I can't express how much I love these boys...

 We headed over to the pool to celebrate our Daddies, Pops & Papas!
Feeding Pop a snack!
Waiting for the ice cream man that never came!
Pop teaching Grayson how to kick!
Wow, so high! He did this 90 times:)
My little fish loves the water and is not one bit scared!
He loves to float on his back, haha! 
Happy Father's Day! So blessed to have all of these men in my life! Thanks for all the love and for all you do!

3 Generations... it's one big circle of love!

Jumping off the side and going alll the way under! What am I gonna do with him?!

Love this... Copper worried about her little brother! So sweet!
Pure Joy!
What a fun Father's Day! We love our Daddies and boy does Grayson love his Grandpa's! So blessed:)

Germantown Charity Horse Show!

We have made it a yearly tradition to go to the Germantown Charity Horseshow with my parents! It is always a blast! We sat in the same spot this year and plan to do it for many more years to come!

Gray & Pop before the show... he got to pet the horses!

Boy, oh boy does he love his Pop!
In love with this picture! My sweet baby:)
Nonna! He sure loves Nonna!!!

:) my lil' love.

Commissary BBQ, he knows where it's at!
We had our own little entertainment besides the horses!

Had to save room for some cotton candy! He loves this stuff!

Num num!
Sharing with Pop!
I had to post this. Please note the clock in the background...way past his bedtime & by the look on Nonna's face he was d-o-n-e!! Haha! So much fun!
Until next year...

*21 Months*

*21 Months*
I can't believe this little cheese face is 21 months! He is full of fun to say the least;)
Weight: 25 lbs.
Diaper: Size 4
Clothes: 18-24 months
-Some new words and things he has learned about: fun, ox, octopus, "mote" a.k.a. remote, and juggle... he loves for mommy to attempt to juggle! He can say "ABCD" and count to THREE!! He's also learned to humm:)
-He always says "I coming", "I running" or "I liiike it" it's too funny!!
-He has changed everyones nickname to their real name ;( He no longer calls Josh "Jaaa" it's now Josh and same with Meg Meg is now Megan! We might just have to keep calling them that so they can keep their sweet little nicknames!
-Grayson got his first haircut on 5/3/13. It took a lot of persuading Mommy, but it looked great after I finally gave in! (Pictures below!)
-Grayson's favorite food right now is pizza, a.k.a. "pee pee"... anyone who thinks they are eating some in front of him without sharing is crazzy!
-He has also started calling Chris & I, Mommy & Daddy a little more rather than Momma & makes me sad when he does it, it sounds so old!
-I've always called Gray my buddy and lately he will say buddy and squeeze my neck!! I love him so much!!!
-When he wants you to hold him he says "hold you" ;) and he loves to hold my hand in the car while I'm driving... the things you'll do for your baby!
-He thinks it is so funny to call Dada, Chris and Momma, Kelley. We can't help but laugh so he thinks it's hilarious! And unfortunately when he says Chris he says it just like I call it, hehe! "Chrrriiisss!" :)
-Everytime Dada gets ready for work he says "dada, work, apple"! Haha! Daddy always packs an apple for work and shares a slice with Gray, so now Dada can never leave for work without his apple:)
-He had also started sleeping like his Daddy... with his arms tucked under him and rubs his feet together, hehe!
-Whenever he sees a flower he will bend down and smell it and make a sniff noise, hehe!
-He hates when someone gets in trouble at school. He gets all concerned and says "crying... all better!" bless him!
-He loves to give everyone cheers with his sippy cup! And he is no dummy, he recognizes everyones drink!! And only the "adult drinks", haha! If he sees a beer can he will say Papa or Meg Meg and if he sees a glass of wine he will say Nonna or Momma! Haha! For some reason he thinks Chris's sprite is water... how did he get off so easy?! ;) Luckily beer always follows with "yuuuckk!" so does that justify my mom of the year award?!?!
-Gray walks around the house all day giving us kisses on the leg, arm, mouth, wherever he pleases. It melts me! He also will out of the blue just say "I luuub you!" he will say it 20 times a day and it gets me everytime! I hope he always tells me he loves me;)
-He also saw a picture of Jesus at school one day and pointed to it and said "Jesus, love you!" Proud Momma! :)

Grayson had the worst virus at the end of April and everything spiked the day I was in my good friends wedding. It was awful, but I am so blessed we have the best Daddy in the world;)

"Where's the sand?!"
