Music & Play at Gymboree

What we did this morning.

Grant and his friend Alexander, being pulled by Alexander's mom, Laurie.

Grant climbs the obstacle course...

He found ducks!  

Very proud of being on the bridge.

Aaaaaaand, he found this slide again.  This slide is our undoing at every class.  He's obsessed with it and doesn't want to stop playing on it to participate in the class!

Hi, mom!

Running around...

Happy boy!

Spray Park

Kaycie and I took Grant to the spray park at Castle Hills. He enjoyed it thoroughly. I wish I'd brought the better camera! Sorry, these are only iPhone pics!

2 Year Molars? WHAT??

Grant is teething.  AGAIN.  This time, it's his 2-year molars.  We've seen them pop up and then go back down and then pop up again several times over the past couple of weeks, and when you add his sudden meltdowns over every little thing, it's easy to point the culprit back to those tiny teeth trying to make their grand debut.

Other signs are the never-ending drooling and chewing on fingers and pacis and anything else that will fit in his mouth, like his rubber bath toys.

Poor Willy the Whale.

Free Willy!  In this picture, you can see him pointing to his Gymboree stamp that he gets at the end of Gymboree class.  He gets them on both hands, the tops of both feet, and his BELLY!  He will proudly show them to you when prompted.

I'm following you, Mama!

We took Grant to a park area of a nearby neighborhood today to run off some energy.  We got lots of pictures!  He had a great time running around.  One of the homeowners had an open fenced backyard with a stuffed deer and wild boar (target practice?).  Grant saw the deer and said, "NEH!"  ...because everything with four legs that isn't a cow, pig, or dog must be a horse.  :)

Grant started saying "Hello!" last night!  It's very, very cute.  Just try to not watch this video twice!

A fun tunnel!

I took Grant to Gymboree today to make up for the class that he missed on Saturday, since I was in Chicago.

After class, I found this tunnel for sale in the lobby.  I couldn't resist.  We brought it home, and Grant enjoyed it thoroughly.  He cried when it was time to put it away!

Gimme that paci!

Shortly after waking up, Grant spotted a paci on the kitchen table.  Despite knowing he isn't supposed to have these unless he's in his crib, he snatched it up anyway.  He's a mess.
