First Day of School

Kai had his first day of school today. He was 50/50 on wanting to go. We have been talking about it a lot this last week and he would sometimes say he wanted to go, and other times say he didn't. In the end he cried but did fine after a bit. I couldn't go because Grady had a doctor appointment. But, Tyson took him and sat in his class for a while to help him get used to it. What is great is that he is at the same school as last year and his teacher moved up with the class. It makes a huge difference that he knows the school, the staff, his teacher and the other kids in the class. When we picked him up today he was happy and had fun and told me he wanted to go back tomorrow. So, all in all, a great first day of school!

Check Up

Grady has his 3 month check up this morning. And, since he has no baby book I am recording the stats here:)

Weight: 13 lbs (40%)
Length: 23 1/2 inches (34%)

Healthy. Happy. Adorable.

Grady is 3 Months Old!

Sweet Grady Zane. You turned 3 months old this past week. You are growing so fast and are such a happy baby. If you are ever fussy it is almost always for a reason…the main one being that you want attention. You could be fussy but then as soon as one of us walks over and looks down at you, you give a giant smile. And with that I am happy to stay and stop what I am doing to be with you. You are talking/cooing/singing/gurgling so much now and I love hearing your sweet little voice. You melt my heart sweet boy!

You are also entertained by the little lion Kai got you for Christmas…for a while there you were as happy with him as you were with me…but now are beginning to prefer actual people:)

What else? You eat (what seems to be) all the time but are sleeping well too. You will, however, only sleep on your stomach (and I have given in … its the least dangerous thing we do in a day here), or attached to Mommy bouncing around like crazy in a moto…or while eating:)

You adore your big brother and he adores you. At this point I see that most of the time he doesn’t stay still long enough for you to actually focus on him. So, you are mostly seeing flashes and blurs of him coming in and out of your sight, giving your kisses and hugs or staring you in the eyes ½ inch from your face before running off again. You handle it all well:) And, when he does slow down enough you give him big smiles and laughs. Today I watched him sing to you and talk to you softly (for him) for a whole 5 minutes. You were crying and his singing made you stop. It was very sweet. I know he can’t wait for you to be bigger so there will be two flashes and blurs running around!

You make lots of different faces and we love them all!
