A Trip To The Aquarium

We took Grant to the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine on Sunday. He really enjoyed it. We went late enough in the day that it wasn't terribly crowded, and Grant had an excellent time exploring all the animals!

Looking at the stingrays. 

Playing in the kids cave. 


Oblivious to the eel on the sandy bottom. 

Looking at jellyfish. 

Touching a real starfish!

Looking at seahorses. 

Of course, baby brother slept through the whole experience, but woke up in time to complain about how hot it was when we made our way back to the car.

You know who really likes to see the cows in the neighborhood pasture?

This guy!

Little Fish

Grant got new floaties and boy, did this make all the difference. He is a little swimmer now. He loved he water and cried when it was time to go in.

And what about Ryan, you ask?

Well, he did a lot of what he does best.  Zzzzzzzzz.....

Playing at Fuzzy's

Grant was the caretaker of the paper towel roll at Fuzzy's. Hey, whatever it takes to occupy him while we shovel food in our faces, hopefully fast enough that neither of the kids will start melting down before we can leave, right?

Dressing Them Alike

Because I can.

It's a terribly blurry picture, but it is so hard to get him to be still these days long enough to get a good picture. And like his dad, he's totally anti-camera now!

Paci Rejection

Ryan will not take a pacifier. This may seem like a good thing since we'll never have to take it away, and considering Grant still LOVES his paci when he goes to bed and is two and a half years old...

Today, we tried with one last style. It was in long enough to take a picture and was promptly spat out.

Guess who is one month old!

So, I had this posted last month, but for some reason, it didn't publish properly.  ???  So, we're trying again!

Ryan turned one month old on July 5th.  Here are a few diaper shots!  Remember when we did these with Grant?

Well, hello, elephant!

Need a comparison with big brother?  Here was Grant at one month old!

Grant Loves Pizza!

We went to our favorite dive-pizza joint for dinner last night, and Grant sat in a big-boy booster for the first time, and even ate with an adult fork!  Where'd my little guy go?  He is getting so big!  Speaking of big, this boy is huge. Tall and heavy. Sometimes I think I can barely lift him anymore. Just getting him out of the car feels like lifting a 5-year old. The last time he was weighed at the doctor's office, he was about 36 pounds, and that was over 2 months ago. So yeah, we grow them big at Chateau Harris.

Without further ado, behold, the big-boy pizza experience.  (Oh, Ryan was there too, but he much prefers milk right now.)

And for your viewing pleasure, here's a very smooshy baby. 

And some tiny feet to set your heart a flutter!
