Miami Trip: Part 1

Gray and I unexpectedly got to visit Miami this July! It was last minute thanks to my wonderful parents:) Grayson was only free 2 more months so we thought we MUST take advantage!
He was soo excited to ride on the "airpane" & go to the beach!! Nemo in tow, of course:)
We had a delay in Atlanta and it was quite adventurous! I was by myself with Gray running wild!! It was past naptime and the kid was outta control!
 We finally arrived though and Grayson was sooo excited to see his best buddy, Ky Ky!!
I was excited to see my best buddy too;)
The first night in is always a fun time! I miss these people so much!

 Whenever we go to Miami he has the time of his life! He wakes up squeeling like we're still here!!!
He had to show everybody his dance moves to shine on! Hehe;)
Just being kiddos!
Kylie opening her present from Grayson! He looks a little anxious!
Ella in the sprinkler! We love Ella!
Grayson didn't last long... he got sunscreen in his eye and that was the end of it.
Too cool dudes right here!
Grayson with the couple of the night! Headed to their engagement party!!
So happy for these two! They are such a perfect match and we are just so blessed they found each other!
Grayson was in rare form on the 45 min. drive to the partay! He was "cited" to say the least!
Lindz & her future mother-in-law:)
2 of my favorite people in the whole wide world!!
Grayson loves Chris... he spoils him rotten!
One of my favorite pictures of my baby boy!! Eat em' up!

Cheers to the Grounds to be!!!
Lil' stinker;)
Speech time!
The whole crew!
So proud to call all of these folks my family:)
All you need is L-O-V-E !

Pretty ladies! (and Grayson flirtin'...;)

Nene deserved a star this night... as I said Grayson was in rare form and ran all over this nice house! "Meme" chased him everywhere... not an easy task as you can see!
Monkey man up to no good, ha!

He just loooves his Ky Ky!

She's thinking, what do I do with him!! Haha!

Pool day at Blue! It was sooo windy!!
But didn't stop this lil' nugget!
He loooved Chris' dog, Chloe!

and his buddy Chris too:)
Good memories right here! (Note: Grayson is literally falling asleep sitting up!)
This was 2 seconds after the previous picture! Poor angel swam his heart out! I love him so!
After a long pool day we plopped on the pull out couch and watched Nemo! What more could I ask for?! (except that my hubby could have been there!) 
Friday, Saturday, Sunday... check! More fun to come:)

*22 Months*

This happy boy turned 22 months on June 25th!
(Please excuse me I'm trying to play catch up! Summa time has beens so busy!)
*22 Months*
Weight: 25 1/2 lbs
Height: That's what check ups are for! Ha!
Clothes:18-24 months
Diaper: Size 4
-He can count to 5!
-He can pick out a triangle when he sees one (Thanks Nonna!)
-He loves books and could read them all day long! His favorite is "Go! Dog! Go!" by Dr. Seuss
-Grayson had his first day of Mother's Day Out! It started out a little rocky, but by the end they said he was doing "leaps & bounds better!" yay:)
-His favorite song and I mean FAVORITE song is "Shine On" by Florida Georgia Line... he is obsessed and we have had many dance parties in our living room :) he's even got the words down!
-His favorite movie right now is "Nemo" or might I say he's obsessed with Nemo!
-His favorite thing to do is swim! He is is not one bit scared of the water! On the 2nd day of swimming this summer he was jumping off the edge  and going straight under with NO fear... Lord, help me!
-When he slides or is in his car he will yell "readddy, seeet, gooo!" So fun!
-If I put something bright or colorful on or he likes what he is wearing he will go "cuuuute!" it's soo funny! I love when it's just a bright t-shirt or something and he still makes me feel cute that day, haha!
-Everytime he gets in his little truck he says he's going to "Target". Haha! What have I done?!
-He will yell random stuff in his sleep and although it gives me a mild heartattack, it's quite funny!
-If something is heavy he will go "wooow, big, heaby" as he tries to lift it.
-He has also learned how to pinch.... not so funny;)
-He will randomly throughout the day come up and give me kisses or out of nowhere just say "i luuub you!" Not a single time does it not melt my heart! He has such a sweet heart!
-He has just recently started waking up and will sit and talk to himself in his bed. It's too cute! Nothing better to wake up to! ;)
-Whenever he's around me he will randomly says "Mommy's here". It melts me... like he has some sort of peace about him when he says it! I think it might be because I will say "Mommy's here" if he's upset or something. Sweet boy!
-He has started praying by himself at the table. Sometimes I look over there and he'll be talking and then just yell "AMEEEN!" hehe!:)
-Although we still have "best" moments each month, I feel it's more appropriate to name them "funny" moments now! He has gotten such a personality on him and with him repeating everything we say we have to be verrry careful! One day my mother in law was over lecturing Chris about something and he kept arguing back. So being funny, she put her hand over his mouth and said "Daddy's in trouble". A second goes by, Chris opens his mouth again and Gray leans over covers Daddy's mouth and said "Daddy in trouble!!". It was hilarious!!! I have a feeling these years to come are going to keep me laughing big time!
Watching Nemo at lunch time!
Every kid should drink from the water hose at least once, right!?

Don't even get me started on this picture... Mommy left town for one night and this is the one picture message I got...
Scared me to death! And I love how Chris admitted it wasn't very safe once I got home! grrr, park only next time:)

Trying Daddy's shoes on!
Helping Daddy mow the concrete???
Wait something's not right!
There ya go! ;)
It makes his world when Daddy lets him help do big boy things!
Checking out the sprinkler park... wasn't so sure at first!
Ehh, why not!
Picnic with my buddy:)
He loooves feeding the ducks and fishies! He would sit out there doing it for hours!
This is usually the result of the park and sprinkler park;)
We redid our back room and made it "Grayson's Play Cave"! He is literally like a man when he goes in there... He plays...
Summer nights at the kickball field!
Sweet Mason teaching him some big boy skills!

Little lovebirds:)
He loves a good breakfast!
It always starts out so calm...
and then it turns to this, haha! Like I said, No Fear!!
2nd time at the sprinkler park... "I own this place!"
I don't care how old he gets I will love every moment of holding my baby while he sleeps!
Sno Cones at Cameron's birthday party!
Trying out the more advanced stuff at the park... what does he think he is, almost 2?! No way :(
Picking flowers for Daddy! My sweet little angel;)
(reality: he tore all the flowers in half, threw them in the air & told them bye bye... they never made it to Daddy! ;)
I love this funny, sweet little boy more than I could have ever imagined! I would give anything to pause in time and enjoy this age forever, but I know next month will be even better than the last;)
