Like a groupie at a concert...

Loving his Yo Gabba Gabba in the morning...

Sometimes I feel guilty for letting him watch TV - probably because the media and Dr. This and Dr. That say you shouldn't let kids watch TV and blah blah blah fishcakes.

But if you could see the grin he gets on his face when we set him down in his Pack-N-Play in the morning and reach for the remote.  He knows his show is coming on, and he gets squeal-y and excited.  It's so cute.

Also, that is an old remote to a DVR we no longer have, but he feels so big-boy when he's holding it.  It's one of his favorite toys.  This morning he was pointing it at the TV, like we do.

Grant says "Jelly"!

I know this is going to warrant some eye-rolls, but I couldn't resist.

Also, I won't be making any money in video editing any time soon.

Cupcakes - again!

Grant took cupcakes to his friends on his last day of "school".  Much mess was made, and I'm positive that lots of sugar highs were had.

Grant took his first steps last night (officially January 24th).  Check out that smile and sense of accomplishment!

Loving his iPhone!

I ordered this item from Fisher Price through Amazon, which holds an iPhone, while simultaneously protecting it from dropping it, slobbering on it, or general toddler destruction.  Grant loves it.  It has handles, rattles, has a mirror on the back, and better yet, is the only way Grant is allowed to play with an iPhone!  :)

Grant LOVES to swing the doors open and shut, regardless of the risk to his chubby little fingers!

Our mornings...

Every morning, I know Grant is awake because I can hear him banging on his jungle music and lights device with his pacifiers.  He doesn't cry when he wakes up most mornings, but instead plays with all the things in his crib.

Those lights are bright, Mama!

He hoards pacis.

First thing's first.  All morning diaper changes are much more pleasant with a warm bottle ready to go.

He's all dressed!

Throw in a little cartoon time...

Give me that back, please!!

Thank you!

And a little more cartoon time...

Then we brush our hair and teeth!

And do a breathing treatment!

Then it's off to school in my big boy seat!

Rhett's mom brought LSU cupcakes for the big game on Tuesday. They were bright yellow and purple and the kids LOVED them! Here are a few pics of Grant enjoying the spoils.

Mmmm... That's pretty good.  Let me have some more!

Why don't we have these more often at home, Mom?

Well, maybe I shouldn't have had that last bite...

No time for regrets now!   I have icing on my hands that needs to be taken care of!

Hey, you with the camera...  You need some purple on you.  Come here!

13 months!

Since we completely dropped the ball on month 12 because of my stitches incident, Grant's major illness, and the hectic holiday season, I'm trying to make up for it!

Here are Grant's 13-month "diaper" shots!

Hey, mom, I'm trying to watch Mickey Mouse.  


There's the smile I was waiting for!

The rest of the months, can be found here!

Blueberries and waffles!

Grant moved up a class in his daycare today. It's pretty exciting! His focuses in this class are to eat more table foods, learn to use a sippy cup instead of a bottle, and get on a more stringent schedule (naps 12:00 - 2:00, breakfast and lunch at a certain time, outside play, etc.).

So far, he's loving it. Especially sitting at "the big kids' table".  Here he is eating blueberries and waffles.  They put T-shirts over the kids' clothes so that they don't get messy during what must be a very messy process.

Also, he got a new winter hat, courtesy of Kristi!  He LOVES Yo Gabba Gabba!  Especially that DJ Lance Rock.  When Kristi asked me who his favorite character was, I chose Muno, but really, it's DJ Lance.  He gets the biggest grin when that man in an orange suit comes on the screen.  However, I don't think anyone sells a winter head-warmer that looks like a black man wearing a furry, neon orange hat.

And for the record, this kid doesn't keep ANYTHING on his head.  If you even attempt to put a hat on, he will pull it right off.  But the Muno hat?  Yeah, he kept that one on all morning.  :)
