Grant's first shoes

Our baby - he has SHOES now!  He'll be walking soon.  And the next thing you know, he'll be leaving for college.

Christmas Stocking!

Grant got a great big stocking full of teethers, small toys and some neat diaper bag items that are way cooler to Mommy than Grant.  

But upon giving it to him, he was way more interested in the bells attached to the stocking, than what was in the stocking.

What are these?

Can I eat it?

HEY!  These won't come off!!

And....  distraction time.  Grant liked the little car that came on this packaging (in his right hand) and this teether for about 2 seconds.

But in typical baby fashion, he actually preferred the packaging on his toys rather than the toys themselves.

Oh well - there's always next year!

Run, run as fast as you can!

...You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!

Someone is in a better mood this morning.

Sit right here?  For how long?  I don't like being still!

I've got places to go!

Wanna see how fast I can make a mess?

Good morning, Mr. Cwanky-pants.

I do NOT like being trapped in this playpen, Mama.

And NO, those cartoons don't make it much better.

What???  You want a picture, AND you took away my paci?

Yes, please, I WANT IT BACK!

You make me cry, Mama.

See these big tears?  NO PICTURES.

Oh, Mickey Mouse?  Um.... Maybe I'll smile...

Ok, maybe just one smile.  :)

Ok, only if I can help!

Come on, Dad, do we have to do the breathing treatment?

But I don't wanna!

What's that?  You'll let me help?

Ok!  I know what to do!  I put this medicine in here...

Then this one in here...

Like that, Mommy!  I'm such a smart boy, and I remember how we set this up!

And then I EAT the canister!  

Haha, no, silly boy.  But nice try!

More birthday party pics!

My friend Romonia, from high school, who took Grant's birth pictures, came up to attend the birthday party, and was kind enough to snap a lot of great shots while I had my hands full.  Here's what she got!  Enjoy!

"Happy Birthday Grant"

"Grant Is One!"

Grant was de-pants'd (is that a word?) so that his jeans didn't get covered in icing...

The only time his cake will have just one candle!  ::sniff::

Grant needed a little encouragement from Mom and Dad.  He wasn't so sure about this cake thing.

After tasting it, though...

He decided it was pretty good stuff!

Grant gets words of wisdom from Daddy.

And Grandpa!

And makes a giant mess of himself!

I'm all done now, ok?

After a quick clean-up and wardrobe change...

He was back to enjoying his party guests!
