How Grant throws a tantrum.

I keep telling Grant that with all the dog hair on the floor, it is too dirty for him to crawl around on.  We try to keep him contained to crawling in his room, or on the weekends, after the house has been vacuumed.  But he doesn't listen.  

Huh?  I don't care about dog hair.


I *do* care about the dogs!  And I see Cole!  Here I come!

(Giggling madly...)  Right after this picture, he went straight onto Cole's bed - YUCK!  So of course, I pulled him off and set him down next to it...

...where he went into "tantrum pose".

This is how he throws tantrums.  Sometimes he cries, sometimes, he's just silent.  Like today.  His silent tantrum protest of not being able to crawl onto the dirty dog bed.  (Cole and Daddy watch with interest.)

Still protesting.

Still protesting.

And sometimes, Daddy tickles put an end to it.  :)

Helping me with the laundry...

You need to do laundry, Mama.

Here, let me show you.

Phew!  I'm done with those chores.  It's time to work on more important things.

Like herding my dinosaur.

Here are a few pics from last night.  It was Grant's first experience with feeding himself spaghetti, so of course, we took off all his clothes and moved him away from touching-range of everything, ha.  He loved it!  And then he went straight into the bath.  Because if you know me, you know that I was on edge the whole time he was eating because of that mess!

Reading to Mama.

This was the first time I ever captured Grant pretending to read, and perusing (ok, fumbling his way) through a book.  It was so cute, that I snatched up my iPhone and video'd it for everyone.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Ashlea took a pic of us in our Valentine's apparel this morning.  Grant is rather cute!

His Valentine's Day cards went out on Friday - did you get yours yet?  

Happy Valentine's Day!

Psst - those are all more pics from his Valentine Mini shoot with Stephanie over at Dahlias and Daisies Designs!

Really long post, but oh so special!

Grant got his very first haircut on Saturday!  We had to make an appointment at Cool Cuts 4 Kids in Plano because last weekend, the wait was 45 minutes!  We arrived right on time, and got all set up - the camera out, distractions ready, the whole nine yards.  We found out ahead of time that Cool Cuts, like most kiddie hair salons, have a special "First Haircut" kit, that allowed us to save a lock of hair and record the day.

So, on to the pictures, right?  There are a lot - be prepared!

Here we are, just getting settled into this cool firetruck chair!  But of course, Grant wasn't having any of it!

No, Daddy!  I'm scared!

Time to put on the superman cape!  Grant was a little torn on whether he was still scared, or wanted to watch cartoons.  They had televisions mounted on the walls in front of the chairs.

What is she doing!?  Daddy, get me out of here!

Snip snip!

Ok, this isn't so bad, as long as you don't go anywhere and I can see the cartoons.

More cutting!

I'm not letting go!

Mommy's turn!

Getting buzzed.

What is that noise??

All done!  Getting brushed off and cleaned up!  Mommy only cried a little.

Finally!  I can explore this truck without being tortured!

Would you look at this LITTLE BOY??  :sniffle:

My two favorite guys in the whole world!

Happy, handsome boy!  (And by the way, have you SEEN all those teeth?)
